Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Yes! He interacted with me and my family in the projection room. Such a fantastic member of staff and told me to get that Wickerman hoodie off as it’s a family ride. :lol He also made crazy laughing sounds and freaked everyone out. He made the whole experience so much better.

Re: Colossus

The longer Colossus stays the better. It’s so fun when it’s not too rough. If you get that perfect smooth run (which I’ve had) the ride is absolutely fantastic. I just think if they repaint it and get new trains it would be even better.

Re: Last ride you have been on

Now it’s Marauder's Mayhem from Alton Towers last Friday. We span so fast it was crazy!

The last rollercoaster I went on is Wicker Man. At 6pm it is so fast it’s nuts!

Didn't the park say on twitter a few weeks/moths ago that they intend to reopen Twirling Toadstool in 2019?


Yes you’re correct, let’s hope this happens! I would love it back next year

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Music and Videos

Hi! I'm looking for the Oblivion ambient sounds that play in the queue line of the ride. (Not the theme tune itself) Anyone know where I could get a copy of it? Thanks

Right now it’s the Zipworld Fforest Coaster in North Wales while I was on holiday. Such a fantastic attraction!

Re: Alton Towers 2019 Wish List

Hopefully Twirling Toadstool returns in 2019 like Towers told us it would. It would make my day.

Re: Towers Loving Care

Shocking... I do hope toadstool somehow makes a return, but the way it’s been left like that… I have so many childhood memories from that ride and can only hope I’ve not seen the last of the toadstool.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Got a reply from Thorpe about Vortex: “Hi Joel, Unfortunately we can't say exactly when Vortex will be back. Our engineers are testing the ride at the moment and we hope to have it back in operation as soon as possible!” This is good to hear and it should be back very soon, Probably within the ne...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Colossus, as well as vortex are both on the summer map. You can see this on the Thorpe Park instagram account. This is good to see. I hope Colossus and vortex re-open soon. I hope they can resolve the problem on Colossus’ cobra roll and it seems they are already trying to do that.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

When we went on 6th and 7th April, we queued about 40-50 minutes both times we went on it. I'd monitored the queue times for it through the last few days and realised the queue died down about 2:30, and after started to rise again. Pretty happy it worked out both times :)
