Re: General Forum Discussion

We are aware of something strange happening with avatars at the moment.

It seems to be linked to Android/Chrome in some way and might be related to a recent change to enable SSL across the forum.

TLDR: Avatars are broken, we are working on it. :)

Re: Project 2020

IAC's closure isn't related to this project, the park are planning something else for that space in the immediate future. Timber Tug Boat, Rocky Express and Lumber Jump are all expected to be open throughout 2019 too. The one thing to bear in mind for this project with planning, all previous coaster...

Re: I'm a Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here

I’m really not going to miss this at all. It was highly themed and fun for the first year but it was not ‘rerideable’ in any sense. I don’t think a theme park was the best place for it as the target audience didn’t seem all that enthused. Maybe putting it at a Madame Tussaud’s would have been better...

Re: Fireworks

Oh I love the tech pictures! They've got some serious gear. Where exactly are they parked this year? It’s in roughly the same place as last year. Off to the left (when facing the towers) of the lawns. Nestled into the trees so it’s not distracting from the view. I had great fun looking around the c...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

The smoke shouldn't be behaving like that. It's not supposed to leave the wicker wall on the other side of the station. 

I would surmise this is why you don't see the effect on very often.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

It's not just Wicker Man that has that 'issue' with the chain lift, a fair few GCI's have a strange rocking motion from time to time. I wouldn't think it's anything to be concerned about.  One thing that was mentioned in the presentation was some slight changes have been made in the last couple of w...

Re: TowersTimes' Summer Festival - 4th August 2018 - Discussion

How are standard passholders going to gain entry to the park? The option to buy tickets for the restriction dates have been removed from the website and they're saying on Facebook that there's no booking option for this date. Just to reassure you, we've got an agreement with Alton Towers that purch...

Re: Dreamworld Australia

Wow. I’m not sure there’s any words to cover how shocking that is. The company has already replaced its CEO (with a generous payout) and is in the process of recruiting a new park manager, but I don’t think that goes far enough given the findings. Something like that is deeply rooted into a companie...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019?

I’m really conflicted about this. I do really enjoy The Dungeons, but unless they go to significant effort to integrate it with the history of the park and surrounding area then I fear it will feel out of place. Let’s clear up a few rumours to start with though. This is certainly not something for S...

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

Ha. Terror or The Towers will be here. As it always is. Every year, everyone says it's time for it to go. It never does. :lol Aside from the fact that as of yet there’s no indication of it returning? All the other mazes have visible signs of construction and ToTT has nothing. I’d love to be wrong a...

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

I think it would be safe to assume that whatever is going on is not to reopen the attraction.

Something for Scarefest is far more likely given that Terror of The Towers is probably not going to return.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

That’s much more like it!

I’m not sure anyone really minds Duel, Rapids and Runaway Train opening later, as they never really draw a queue.

Hopefully this extends beyond May half term.

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

If this is correct (Naughty Mr Walliams for leaking it) then it’s an unexpectedly brilliant IP to have. As long as the project quality is done to the same standard as CBeebies Land and Wicker Man then it could be an awesome addition. Ideally they would also add another high thrill attraction to go w...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

There is absolutely no plans for anything else in the maintenance shed at this stage, and it wouldn't be feasible to have actors in there during Scarefest either. I think most are in for disappointment if you think anything else is going to appear.  Once the issues are resolved with the ride operati...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I wouldn’t see them dropping down to a two train operation having much effect throughput wise. On all 7 occasions of me riding, there was always a train waiting behind the one in the station, so even if they did drop to a two train operation, there would always be a train in the station. Also, anyo...

Re: Travelling to Alton Towers on 19th March 2018

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but as of this moment in time there is no confirmed buses between Uttoxeter and Alton Towers for the 2018 season. I would suggest checking over the weekend or getting in contact with First Buses to see if they intend on running a service.  https://www.firstgroup.c...
