Everything apart from Nemesis, Enterprise & Galactica are down again... How odd. Either a power cut, or ridetimes is playing up! :-k

Whats happened to the third one? Is it something mechanically wrong like lap bar failures, or is it something to do with the body of the train or wheels?

Don't have any information regarding Th13teen but did anyone else see the Spinball news in the paper today? Not sure how long it was down for but it reported one of the trains stopping on the lift hill. Probably just the media jumping on Alton Towers' back for anything again but...seems a bit sketchy.

Sketchy how? AT said it was stopped 45 mins due to guest action then reopened. I'm guessing someone was sticking their foot out again.

Don't know, just seems a little bit as the amount of ride closures reported around Alton Towers seems to be a lot higher than any other theme park on the planet, but saying that the media will report anything just to get more buyers ](*,)

The reason that these stories appear the amount they do is because of the incident on the Smiler. There are neither more or less emergency stops on Alton Towers rides than there are any other theme park, it is just the fact that these stops can be sold by the papers as somehow linked to the Smiler incident. :)

The third train requires maintenance which cannot be carried out until the closed season. Really gonna suffer at Fireworks.

mind you, if thats what they're calling an 'incident' surely Towers should be praised, because according to them it's their third 'incident' this year

This is quite disgraceful, Rita, Galactica and The Smiler down as well :-/

There is only one ride out of six open beyond the towers archway!

Just been looking at ridetimes and Galactica is still down. I think that's been nearly a week now and also Spinball Wizzer and Rita were both closed. Although, I'm not sure whether that was an all day thing or just a small breakdown or whatever. So whatever's happening to Galactica let's hope it's sorted soon as Towers aren't really helping on there social media by putting 'We have no further updates at this time'

Rita and Spinball weren't down long. I've had ridetimes.co.uk up all day to see if it is quiet :lol

I was on park yesterday, it was a very quiet day and operations were good. Rita was only down for a short time and I didn't even notice Spinball went down. Was a shame to not get on Galacticair but ho hum. Longest I waited yesterday was 20 minutes for Thirteen, after that everything was pretty much walk on or 5 minutes.

Looks like Nemesis is down all day today, and accordng to Towers Street, there is a crane on site next to it. Hope this is nothing to serious.
