Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I saw at least three people in full clown outfits with masks on, really creeped me out. (Not because of the clowns, because I couldn't see their face!). Fair enough, the actors being allowed to wear masks and carry fake weapons as it's their job but if there's a member of the GP wearing a mask, that...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I, for whatever reason, could only write 15 so I put Improve the lighting on Duel and new padding on Nemesis harnesses (like The Smiler). Those were my pet peeves last time I went, I got a headache on my last Nemmy ride from smacking my head on the harness Did anyone else notice that Spinball Whizze...

Re: On-Ride Breakdown Experiences

I've had a couple of near misses at Alton, the people in front of us on Galactica were stuck in the position for about 20 minutes and the car behind us on Wicker Man was stuck in the brakes for about half an hour. The only personal stories I have to share is when me and my mum were stuck on Th13teen...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I will add onto the photo prices and say that they cost £5 if on a school trip, just as a quick FYI for everyone.

Re: The Story of Alton Towers DVD

I know this is a bit of a dead thread but does anyone know where you can get this at a decent price now (Amazon can piss off, I am not spending £35 on it). This DVD was my most prominant childhood memory and I'd love to see it again seeing as my copy is buried in a box somewhere!

Re: Duel - General Discussion

On the subject of the digital portraits, I also prefer the older style actual paintings with the eyes. The newer ones look too Modern Ghostbusters-style (look up Ghostbusters World and you'll see what I mean). Also, the same digital portraits can be seen in the Dracula Experience in Whitby, which I ...

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

And here is a gem my friend told me today: Queueing for Galactica. tannoy: 'The queue for Galactica with VR is two hours, the queue for Galactica without VR is 0 minutes' At which point people rushed to get in the non VR queue, massively depleting the VR queue, only to realise that the Fast Track en...

Your worst experience at Alton Towers

For me, the worst time I went to AT was recently on a school trip. i was in a group with me and about 6 friends. And oh my God it was so tedious. As I was one of the only ones who had actually been to AT (many times), you'd naturally assume that my advice would be taken. Well, honestly, it wasn't (m...

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

I went on a school trip to AT a few months ago and overheard something on the coach before we got off:

Teacher: 'I'm going to go on the log flume, I saw they were doing some work on it last time I came here.'

I really wanted to see his face when he found out.

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

Hello all!
I've always found AT such a magical place and it holds such a special place in my life, I thought 'Why not interact with people who love it as much as I do!'
So here I am!
