Re: Disabilities?

This has changed very recently at Alton, and you can now have a maximum of three helpers on each ride - meaning you can fill a row of 4 seats.

Re: Second concert - 26th June 2011

Hey all if the concert is true, yet guest services are saying it's not, get your claims in now :lol: Ring them up to get it confirmed there is no concert, and then with this behind you when the concert is announced, hey presto, free concert entry! As you can say hey you said there was not to be one...

Agreed by far they should be basically £15 concert entry, yet I get no love :evil:


£15 to see JLS, The Saturdays, McFly and Eliza Doolittle? - You're taking the piss there. To see JLS alone in an arena would probably cost you in excess of £30.

Re: Shrek attraction for 2011?

If they had any sense it should go in Mutiny Bay in the old 3d cinema tent. No chance! It would be way out of place in xsector and a silly idea to place it there. Again, not going to happen. Its good to hear the park getting another big franchise to their list. It would make 2011 a big year for fam...

3.30pm - so basically, the rides with no lighting for Scarefest will close early - presume Flume and a couple of the kiddy rides?


I'd add Skyride to that list too. Never operates in the dark.

Just got off the phone from Alton, and spoke to a woman there who said, and I quote: "The £5 for AP Holders is simply for those who want a GUARANTEED spot at the concert. If you have an AP, you can still enter the park, and attend the concert, but there's no guaranteed seat [at the concert].&q...

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Ride & Construction discussion

This structure seems to have fallen down/been partially knocked down. Is this part of Thriteen themeing? Seems a little extreme if it is, but i couldn't fully make out what had been demolished or remember exactly how it originally stood. http://i749.photobucket.com/albums/xx139/venny911/Photo1415.j...

Re: SW6 / Thirteen - Viral Marketing/Promotional Discussion

Perhaps it wasn't a case of the ASA outright banning the advert at all. Perhaps it's more a case of Towers approaching the ASA for advice, and the ASA offering it. Then The Sun comes along and blows it up like they usually do.

Re: 2010: Corkscrews for the Entrance Plaza

Nah, they're going to be put up for opening now, the entrance plaza has been re-paved ready for half term now that the footers are in, as far as I know anyway. If the footers are in and they have re-paved the area then doesn't that mean all they have to do is put up the track? That can be done in u...

Re: 2010: Corkscrews for the Entrance Plaza

I'd like to think that they'll at least get some of the work done before Half Term, seeing as they've ripped up the entrance plaza. Doesn't look too great with people turning up at the park to be greeted with orange plastic fences and bricks laying strewn over the floor. I'd like to think that at l...

Re: Ug Land / Rita 2010

they have gone for a wierd mix of dilapidation and a whole new theme and it is wrong. The two are intrinsically linked though. The new area "Dark Forest" is one that has created the dilapidation through the encroaching nature of it. You can't have a crypt within a dark, unexplored forest ...
