Re: Park Music and Videos

Sorry if it has already been posted in this topic, but does anybody know where I could find the Gloomy Wood music that includes the zapping noise that the guns make please?

Thanks in advance :)

Re: Alton's Biggest Fail!

Slightly off topic, but does anybody know what time the toilets open in Gloomy Wood?

- I have never set foot in either of the hotels or Cariba Creek. - I actually find Submission good fun. - I have never eaten at an Alton Towers owned restaurant (I always use the high street brands like KFC, Pizza Hut etc.) - I enjoy going to the park when it is really busy, just for the atmosphere....

By the way, I did not realise these shots were taken illegally before I posted the link on here, so please do not think I encourage this kind of thing.

If you look at their main site, they have galleries for other rides at Alton which they have trespassed upon, including Oblivion's lift hill :shock:

Different Nemesis Views

I have just come across a set of pictures of Nemesis that some of you may like. They were taken in December 2006 from areas such as below the loop (in the pit) and from unused queue lines. http://www.ride-guide.co.uk/photo/uk/al ... /index.htm The first page or so just looks like regular 'Behind The...

That's good to hear. The Saturday just gone was still very busy at 6 o'clock so this should really help the crowds leaving the park.

Thanks Craig. I've been on the ride plenty of times in the past and have never noticed them but yesterday they were very loud, and I must say they really added to the atmosphere.

Whilst waiting for Oblivion yesterday, I noticed various sound effects in the queue line. Could anybody tell me how long they have been around as I haven't heard them before?

An advertisement for cheaper tickets has appeared on the Msn homepage;

I noticed the Alton Towers logo straight away so hopefully other people will do as well.

In my opinion Gloomy Wood is fine as it is, and if another attraction was to be added, the atmosphere would be ruined. Maybe Duel could do with some new effects inside to make it a little scarier, but apart from that I find the area one of the best at Alton Towers for creating a great atmosphere. :)

I have spoken to them directly a few times now, anyone old enough will remember that they sent me a load of product brochures and a large collection of photos taken by B&M on the opening day of nemesis and oblivion not long ago. They even had the original dates on the back, was well chuffed. Wo...
