Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

They have added new stuff to the  online shop  like the numbered Wicker Man wood and the sculpture, the 2018 pins have been added, but not the newer ones that were just released. Also, the numbered Wicker Man wood seems like a cash grab, as they cost £50 instead of the normal £25 ones, the only diff...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

This talk with the Rapids must be something quite recent, when I went on a weekday the other week the staff were filling the boats at full capacity. It is interesting that they’re not filling boats up recently.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

The order I would go with is:
-Wicker Man
-Walk up to Smiler, Oblivion and Spinball
-Go to Hex, then TH13TEEN and Rita
-Then catch the skyride to Nemesis and Galactica, then walk down to Mutiny Bay, doing Duel, Rapids, and Runaway Minetrain on the way
-Then you might have time to do Wicker Man again

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Going to Towers next week, is filming allowed in Wicker Man's pre-show and station, say with a mobile phone?

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Does anyone know when the towers close? I've never been in them (apart from Hex) and I would love to walk around them before they close for Scarefest.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I would personally advice you don't use an expensive looking bag, because that might attract potential thieves.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I'll be going to Towers for the first time this year soon and I want to know if Wicker Man has a free flow station, or is there someone telling you where to sit? If so, is there a front row queue line?

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Alton Towers tweeted this out, confirming the official opening is this Saturday, and that there will be an opening ceremony. It also has a slight new teaser.

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

That's where the confusion is, it says near Mutiny Bay, not in it. It's just it's own area.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

ITV news are just saying "halt", doesn't mean it is definite, especially since Towers haven't actually confirmed anything. But as saw-x-smile says, no point in risking it, even if there is no snow, the ride can't operate in those temps.

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

The 2018 park map has been shown by TowersTLC, Wickerman looks fantastic. However, no indication as to what area Wicker Man is in, as it looks like they labelled the map by category, and not area. Therefore Wicker Man is labelled under thrills. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DYWbLljWkAATZ6Q.jpg

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

TowersStreet has tweeted  these  pictures, showing the complete removal of The Welcoming, and a slight retheme to the Mutiny Bay Area, surround the Wicker Man plaza area. Good move, or not? https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DYCcuGSWAAA1P7K?format=jpg&name=medium https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DYCcuGcW4AY...

To be honest, kind of disappointed with the staff uniforms.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It's also worth noting that IMAscore announced that they have made Wickerman's soundtrack in this tweet. What's everyone's thoughts?

Re: Wicker Man Construction Discussion

TowersTimes have released  these  pictures on their Facebook. Notice the burnt part of the wooden posts, confirming that they will have flame effects! Also, it looks like the warning and height marker boards are up, as well as a nice new look to the Katanga Canyon pathway. https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx...
