To be honest, my science exam was perfect for me, I pointed out so many different mistakes it was embarrassing. In the booklet it had something about. The Nemesis roller coaster at Alton Towers drops vertically down at a speed of 45 mph into a 100m pit. How low would the track have to rise for the train to get back to the station, even worse, the picture was of Griffon, as you can imagine I crossed out Nemesis for Oblivion, 45 mph for 69 mph and 100m for 35m and then wrote a note saying The roller coaster is Griffon at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Oblivion is Black, not blue. What is the point in trying to make these tests entertaining with incorrect knowledge, not entertaining for me, it's frustrating to see these papers

People think I'm odd when I tell them that Oblivion is not quite vertical, it's 87 degrees.

My apologies to anyone who's childhood I have ruined

I would guess that as we are on an Alton Towers fan site that most people would know this already, so I wouldn't worry about ruining peoples childhoods. ;)

That sounds so frustrating! Was it an official exam? If not, I'd have stood up and given the class a lecture about it :lol

I think NemesisJaney has to be one of the most obsessed.

Janey, did I see you hug a Nemesis support as we left the park at the sizzler?

That's just showing some love. I've hugged a guy called Dave several times who works on The Smiler / Oblivion :D

Wasn't official but I did complain to the teacher very loudly, so everyone could hear me at the end, when a 12 year old can outsmart a teacher completely :twisted:

Not a support, a track-morph leg. That's not the first time I hugged her that day, either! I would have done more if the TTF-current wasn't pulling me away from her. :D
And yes, you'd probably be right in thinking I'm one of the most obsessed(with Nemmy, specifically).

-Every week you watch Theme-Park-Worldwide: The Show
-Your wall is littered with theme-park maps, leaflets etc.
-You have a TowersTimes account :lol
-You still have the box from Smiler's pizza
-You refuse to wear any clothes that aren't theme-park clothes
And last, but not least...
-You drink Ribena, not just for the taste

I'll do rings. Will a master-blaster ring from the water-park fit the Nemmy creature!? Ooh, a house-warming gift from me will be a bathtub from the flume!

Some person at my school protested about not going on the Alton Towers trip last year because of the silly rules of uniform and they wore a thirteen hoodie. Well that gave us an whole protest in the uniform rules. (The shoes have to be completely plain and no trouser pockets allowed) we were allowed a clean protest so me and my friend went In matching smiler t shirts and caps along with thirteen hoodies with signs saying we need alton towers for some reason. Needless to say the teacher swapped the trip to the engineering museum I think it was to An educational trip to alton towers. This is the same teacher that made the test mistakes but if it means I get behind the scenes if I don't get a detention before November I'm up for it. Oh and we are allowed to have shoes that aren't completely plain and shoes with logos now. The trouser pocket rule has gone as well. Even some of the parents protested. Me and my friend just, well sat there randomly waving our signs. I can say I don't like protests though.

I shouted at my friend for 10 mins when he called the marmaliser a spider and I draw a picture of 14 vertical loops when people say that the smiler has 14 LOOPS.
