I'll be buying the Corkscrew and Black Hole pins, but to be honest, it's likely I'll buy all 4! I hope we see more as they look great!

Only got back from Alton Towers last week to get the new pins that had been released this season as well as the Strong one.....

Damn you Alton oh well time to go back to the park and grab all the pins and have a cheeky ride on Nemesis front row while we are there. :lol

I'm really hoping to get the Corkscrew and Black Hole pins, trouble is I'm about a 7 hr flight away.... I do hope if we push them then they'll have a few online.

Here's hoping they will do well and we'll get ones for other old rides such as Thunder Looper and Haunted House!

Damn again Alton Towers after we get off Nemesis it'll be back to Towers Trading to get the above starter set......

8 new pins announced on the same day this must be Disney records ..... time to check my Rota and work out the next trip back to park.

Honestly though all joking apart I'm glad that the pins are being pushed again as it's been frustrating the last few years when pin releases have been few and far between so whoever came up with the idea of new pins in the Merch Department at Merlin/Towers I applaud you :clap: :clap:

I brought the four new idividual pin badges via their website and I love the Congo River Rapids one. They must know its my favourite ride at Towers as its also glittery. There was also a reply tweet that I saw this morning that hinted at potentially some Scarefest ones being released. I'm currently in the wrong place to show an image or quote what was said.

I absolutely love the new retro badges! They seem to be popular so really hoping they make some more. Beast, Thunder Looper, Around the World would be nice. It would be good if they could carry on the style of the newest four. Just having the plain simple logo on that smart black card they look great.
Life is a roller coaster. You can either scream every time you hit a bump or you can throw your hands up in the air and enjoy it.

Looks good. Warwick have a nice metal pin of the castle too, you need to check that out!

 All of my pins this year havn't been added to my lanyards. I keep wondering whether to keep them in their packs, although I did say to myself last year just to enjoy them and not worry about it!
