You're right from what I saw on park this weekend Dom, the AT logo is in my opinion finally exactly what it should have been, small enough to go on a lanyard! In fact I really like all the pins this season.


I must admit, they are all on my list to get in May :lol Especially the Galactica one as it looks quite funky

I really like the new pin badges this year too and am especially glad they've improved the Nemesis one as it looks much better than last season's one. It's always exciting to see new badges and add them to my collection and I wonder what else might appear :D

The Smiler Corrected Pin Badge

Does anyone have this badge and are willing to sell it to me? Last one I need and can't find it anywhere!

I found this one on eBay Spain but you'd have to be desperate to pay £26 for it!

I guess they are trying their luck with Spanish Alton Towers fans who can't afford to come to Britain to buy it themselves in the park.

The packaging on the first Galactica pin badge reminds me of the Air logo. Also, why are the more than one pin badge for some of the rides?

A brand new pin has been released for 'The Big Six Challenge' based on the 'Strong' logo. It is now available from Towers Trading.

Hopefully, you will get one on your next visit. It'll give you an excuse to go again, if not, then I am sure they will place them online!

Looks like a decent badge, a little disappointing it's essentially another just print badge though.

I'll buy it, but it is disappointing that it has a white border around the actual logo. Then again, I believe it is only £2, so I'm not going to grumble too much.

Is the border white? I thought it was silver with the light shining on it! Would have been better silver!

Picked one of these up yesterday, they are £3.50. Better than I was expecting, but could of been so much more!

Its worth pointing out what they said on their FB post.
It's time for (arguably) the most important vote you'll make today! Which of our four new pins, available exclusively from Towers Trading Company, are you most excited for?


So it looks like these will only be available at Towers Trading and not via their online shop

Well, this is a difficult choice but I can see the Corckscrew badge winning a clear majority from the voters! :lol
