Re: Last ride you have been on

Samurai at Thorpe Park, but I did TWD:Living Nightmare after that.

The last coaster I did was Nemesis Inferno.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019?

If we are getting the Dungeons next year, surely the Toadstall should re-open with it... Otherwise it would be strange to have an SBNO ride next to a new one. They did say they intend for it to re-open in 2019 also. Fingers crossed!

I do hope Colossus stays! All it needs is new trains and a repaint :(

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!

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.
