Once my pass ends in June I wouldn't mind letting go my VIP package contents. The box contains the booklet, exclusive vip lanyard, 2 golden tickets (shiny!, but useless), welcome letter in fancy envelope & pin badge. Only thing I would ask is for the shipping cost to be covered via bank transfer or something.

Very interested in the lanyard and Pin badge :)


I do hope they change the lanyard annually to avoid any confusion.

Gosh lee don't worry I wouldn't wear it in park it'd just be nice to add to my collection haha

Nearly £12 for one map (when including postage is not cheap :P I appreciate the age and that but still not cheap for a map

Just seen a 1994 original Nemesis pin badge pop up on eBay, I'm seriously thinking of buying it. Looks like such a piece of history... I don't know whether that justifies the £30 price tag though.

Hello all :) I'm a huge badge collector, and I'm looking to expand grow and possibly get all of the alton towers badges ever released, big challenge I know but it's just a passion of mine just like some have map collecting or other such personal collections. Anyway just wondering as it's such a big community if anyone has any badges I don't have (pics to be posted below) and is willing to sell or donate them, any help would be greatly appreciated, I already scoul EBay everyday and do my best to get what pops up! So if you can help in anyway reply here or PM me to discuss further :)

Sonic Spinball Ride Merchandise

Sat Mar 12, 2016 4:42 pm

Ok so... many many years ago I stayed at the Sonic Room at Alton Towers and I really enjoyed it, in fact I posted about it on this forum at the time.

Anyway, since then I've been back to Alton almost every year or so,, gradually collecting some of the Sonic Spinball themed merchandise that has been there.

Not including the random park maps, currently my collection looks like this.

Image

The shirt was given out to riders during the March 2010 preview event during the UK's half term so... oh wow just realised this should be almost 6 years ago to the day! The park & Sega had a small opening ceremony, at the end of the day there was a Tiki Room style party held in the Splash Landings Hotel buffet area, there used to be video of it online however it's been long removed now. They had a bunch of Sega consoles set up and special themed drinks for those who went at the time.

The photo frame is the one you get from the ride itself.

However there is a third piece of merch which I've not been able to get, the medal. I was wondering if anyone had one, and the ultimate ask, if anyone would be willing to part with one, I'd be more than happy to pay for it + postage if anyone is able to help, ideally after 2 since my partner is quite the Sonic fan and would love one too.

I do not know how much it is worth or when it was made, however, I have recently got my hands on a glass themed for The Corkscrew.
Here is an example of the glass that I found on the internet http://thumbs.worthpoint.com/SlKuOaR3KV ... 44e879.jpg

I'd love Alton to release these!
I hope The Sanctuary returns at some point though!
