Re: ADHD 'queue jumpers'

You did not comment, on the Q-Bot Virtual Queue system for disabled guests. Do you think this is a fair solution that would stop people taking advantage of it? i do think this is a fair point, and i welcome it. i do think there should be stricter ways of getting the bands. I didnt mean my post to b...

Re: Explorers Pizza/Pasta Buffet

Went on Tuesday and was disappointed with how down hill its gone. There was food everywhere on the floor and food spills on the wall

The pizzas were greasy and over the top with sauce and cheese but lack of toppin like pepporoin etc. Not impressed at 8 quid per person now.

Re: Charity Event.. do u think Alton Towers will help?

Thanks for the well wishes guys...

I don't want to sit on one particular coaster all day, I just wondered if they would help with fast tracks or something along those lines. I want to do Alton Towers on the Friday, Drayton Manor on the Sat and Thorpe Park on the Sun.
