Does it really matter if anyone can do it?

It's not the end of the world, it's just a bit of fun after all! :P

And for someone to do it, they have to have paid to enter the park which is all AT will be bothered about anyway :D

Given the ride is now 7 years old it's not really a secret element anymore :-k


You be surprised. In the last 12 months, I've lost count on how many first time Thirteen riders that I've see that have absolutely no idea about the crypt drop

Are you using iPhone or Android? I'm on Android (Galaxy S7) and it still seems like it didn't update at all...
EDIT:
Just checked on their website, the Android app didn't received the update yet.
Kind of unfair to give Apple phones a head start!:/

I'm using android and I haven't the update either. I hate it when Iphone user get updates first an brag about how apple is the best at everything.

Come on Towers why can't you delay the updates until it is ready for android. Why does the android version of the app have to be one update behind. It's not like Apple are paying you for timed exlusivity *cough* *cough* Nintendo *cough*.

I don't know how app development works but has anyone considered that it's taking longer for Android due to it needing some more development than iOS (possibly due to Android having all sorts of different versions)?

I'd imagine with the challenge already being late they just wanted to get at least one platform out and ready. Whilst it really is a pain thankfully it's not in peak season and I'm sure the update will be rolled out soon - just need to be patient! :P

(Side note notice how I am using an iPhone and avoided bragging once? It's a miricle! ;))

^Dunno, but that did sound like a bit of bragging to me. ;)
In other news, the Android version of the app has been updated and now includes the challenge as well.

I know this has probably already been said - but I do wish Merlin would do something for the Annual Passholders who will get little to no benefit from this. Just a little something like a Big Six pop badge or vouchers for the restaurants/shops for people who complete it would be nice.

Big Six merchandise is expected to be in Towers Trading company by 22nd May however it could be earlier, a shop reshuffle will follow with the role out of the merchandise. New pin badges will also come with the big six merchandise, including new Smiler and Big Six pin and a rumoured corckscrew pin badge.

Personally, I think that the pin badges for the Big Six Challenge should only be sold at the end of the rides like at the photo booths so that only those who have ridden the ride can buy them.
