I’m hoping we get some maze related pin badges this year. And hopefully Wicker Man will have some nice ones. I would imagine they will have re done the coasters too.

The new pins look fantastic. I'm really going to be poor after the weekend. I particularly like the Wicker Man logo pin!

Two new pins have been released by Alton Towers, along with an additional pin which can only be obtained from Towers Trading by showing the staff the Alton Towers app installed on your phone.

I know it's not the most sophisticated, but I rather like the phone pin. It's unique to say the least and has a certain, Merliny charm to it. 

The other two are just fantastic, nothing else needing to be said. Especially the Rita one, it looks beautiful.

Definitely! As much as I dislike Merlin, even I'll admit that one of the things which they do extremely well is their merchandise!

Some new pins have been released recently...

Apparently there's even more new pins, but this is the only picture I can find showing at least some of the new ones.

EDIT – here's a look at the rest of the pins!

These looked to be the oversized pin badges which I am not keen on at all. Alton have been good to release the 'normal' sized pins but they seem to be getting bigger again :(

In other news, I received this on Thursday. Another piece of wood to add to the collection :)

Are those pins going to be released on the Alton Towers shop?

They have added new stuff to the online shop like the numbered Wicker Man wood and the sculpture, the 2018 pins have been added, but not the newer ones that were just released.

Also, the numbered Wicker Man wood seems like a cash grab, as they cost £50 instead of the normal £25 ones, the only difference is that they are numbered and say "feed the flames" instead of "be chosen"

I ordered one (pictured above) but I am quite happy to pay that as it is very limited and a different design.

Does anyone know where I can get my hands on an Air pin badge? Preferably 2011 but 2015 will do just fine as well. I am willing to buy off of anyone in the forums if necessary. I’m slightly desperate because it is one of the last pins I need to complete my Alton towers pin collection of all the rides through the parks history :)

They are not yet available on the Online Shop but there are plenty of others there to buy.

I'm not a fan of these hologram flip pins. They just don't match up to the quality of the others released :(

I agree there Justin. They look tacky, cheap, and not worth buying. I found a London Eye one at the London Eye shop, and it looks equally bad. Keep in mind this is all my opinion.
