Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Interesting way to raise funds. I know football stadiums and Zoos do similar things. As mentioned above it depends on where the bricks are and also the threat of vandalism. Also MAP discount

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

I am expecting a slight rise in renewal price as Merlin did mention in November that the Premium was going up by £10. Just checked and don't have enough Tesco Clubcard Points this year for the MAP. Still will be checking the renewal price as I've had a pass since 2000 when Tussards launched them.......

Re: Ride pin badges

The new 2017 Alton Towers Christmas pin badge is live on the main Alton Towers Website. I've heard that there are only gonna be about 1000 or so. They were supposed to go on sale earlier in the week but Alton Towers received them slightly late. VERY quickly ordered one and totally didn't see the par...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I'm probably going to show my age now, but those screen grabs kind of remind me of the old children's TV show, Knightmare :lol I too am of the age to remember this classic programme. Always on a Friday afternoon. If I remember correctly Alton Towers did have a VR type team game thingy. It was many ...

Re: Thorpe Park Merchandise

Does anyone know if the Flying Fish Pin is only available to MAP Holders this weekend only? The reason I ask is we are at Chessington and Thorpe on the 3rd/4th July and was gonna get all pins then. Don't want to miss a pin for the collection or have to pay an extortionate amount from EBay if the Fly...

Re: Fireworks

So we've got the hotel booked already and also booked breakfast for the Monday. We always do hotel on the Sunday and waterpark on the Monday. I think it's a bit bad that we have to pay an extra £10 to guarantee entry even though we are booked already. I reckon though if you arrive with your MAP firs...

Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

Just about to get off the Eurostar. Gutted as I said earlier about Hyperspace Mountain but did get the other coaster creds at both parks and a haul of 17 pins. 2 of which were given free from Disney themselves so a bonus. Cheers Lewis for merging my 2 posts much apreciated. My signal wasn't the best...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I feel it's unfair to judge a ride after not properly experiencing it .... I do agree Jonny and yes perhaps I was being mega harsh with my post. It's just when you avoid all spoilers and the project has the potential and you finally get to ride...... To have the experience kinda ruined. I will go b...

Just got back from Thorpe Park and finally managed to get on DBGT....... well what a £30 million disappointment. The ride was experiencing problems prior to opening so opened late which wasn't the problem. Got my photocard and went for Contamination check (photopoint) went to preshow which was good ...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Does anyone know where I can find more info regarding this annual Digipass as it's seems a good investment across all 4 parks. I just want to check the T&Cs so see if there is a limit per day. If not then I'll be getting one for use with my MAP this year
