Depending on the prices, I might spend my birthday money on something!

So I looked at the auction page as I quite liked the idea of having the "No Splashing Please" sign in my bathroom.

£78!!!!! :yikes:

No thanks :lol

The good thing is that you know someone very keen will pay these high prices, rather than dropping it like that loom band dress on ebay that had a bid of £100000(or something) but didn't go for anywhere near that much in the end :lol also it's always worth investing a bit more in the things you want to do well, which would be MMW in this case.

Cedar Fair seem to have closed both of their Intamin accelerator coasters after an incident on Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point, do people think that Merlin will follow suit with Rita & Stealth?

Whoooah. Anyone seen anything like this before? Not sure about Stealth and Rita, but as they're much smaller scale I can see them staying open. However, I can see the potential closure of Kingda Ka, and maybe RedForce.

RedForce won't be affected as it uses LSM technology for the launch rather than a hydraulic system.

Anyway, back to Alton Towers discussion :)

Don't think this has been brought up yet but I've been trawling through the Alton Towers Holidays website, and it seems that the 2018 season dates have been revealed:

Opening day will be Saturday 24th March, there will not be any closed dates until Wednesday 2nd May. All Wednesdays in May will be closed excluding the final one. The next closed dates will be Wednesdays in September as well as the first 3 Wednesdays in October. There are no further closed days until the end of the season which could suggest that we will be getting 3 days of Fireworks back.

The last week in October (first few days in November) 2018 is half term week, kids are off school, hence why no closures

Edit: That's strange, I google the term dates at the start of this month and the internet was saying that the half term week was going to be 28th Oct to the 4th of Nov. looks like that information has now been change for the half term to be the week before  ](*,)

That must use the majority of the outdoor queue right now because of the high throughput!

Vinyl signage has been added to Splash Landings which now advises guests of its closure until May!

I think it really is ridiculous that they have to close one hotel because they can’t fill it yet they keep building hotels!?

That’s Merlin for you.

We can hope that Splash may be getting some sort of major overhaul but I think we all know it’ll just be sitting there until a week before it’s due to re-open and they get the polish out :lol

Well, What's the point in building yet more accomedation if not all the hotels are going to remain open all year, I hope we see an overhaul of Splash before we get yet another hotel or Enchanted Village expansion...

The Enchanted Village expansion has already begun construction I'm assuming for a launch next year.

I have read also there will be a large £18 million / 250 lodge accommodation site in a nearby quarry 4 miles away subject to planning permission approval.

Isn't the current construction by the Enchanted Village to do with a Santa tipi for Christmas?
