Re: Quick Questions 2010

They let everyone into the park but they are only allowed in towers street, to get past towers street for ERT you have to have a ticket that says hotel on (or now the online ones aswell) and the staff will let you through. Last time I went all the chavs were kicking off "why are you letting th...

Re: Early ride time

We normally walk from the car park to the main entrance.However this time we are taking a friend who has never been before so we are planning on going on the monorail. In the past they let everyone in to towers street at 9m, but only ert guests could go further than the bottom of the street.So do w...

Re: Power Cut: 13/04/2010

I wouldn't mind gettin stuck in the dark on duel! I don't know what's going on with power cuts lately, I live in Coventry and yesterday at my work we had no power for an hour, we had a powercut for around 2 hours at my house today and our marks and spencer in town has had no power for past 2days.

Re: Alton Towers Staff

I agree, whenever I visit the towers I'm always asked how my day's going, have I managed to get all the rides done, comments on the weatcher etc, the oblivion team seem particularly nice. It's those little touches that make alton towers stand out from the rest. The only rude staff I have ever come a...

Re: Quick Questions 2010

Do you get free shampoo in the Splash Landings rooms - if so would it be enough for four people? We are also getting buy one get one free tickets with the hotel - do we pick the tickets up when we check in, and will it be just one ticket for the two days? (we are notorious for losing things given t...

I cant understand why burger king is so overpriced, i went to the one at ricoh arena a couple of weeks ago and it was about £6 for a meal, you can get a decent meal in a pub for that! When cred strt was maccy d's i didn't really notice a difference between their prices and the maccy d's on the high ...

I agree, went to AT friday (20th) and we decided to eat in cred street mcdonald's, big mistake! we had to queue for half an hour and then wait a further 10 minutes for our food. The thing is though the park wasn't even busy! I can't imagine how they cope in the school holidays! Also, although the st...

I don't think corkscrew will go, even though it's old and maybe it should go because it hurts so much!! I think it will stay for another few years yet until AT really need the space. Personally, i think both enterprise and submission are both a waste of space, i rode them first time last season and ...

They should use both sides when it's busy but otherwise there's not really much point.

I agree, the flumes so original! it makes it stand out from all the other log flumes in theme parks. Also, surely extra money being pumped into the park can never be a bad thing?!

If the noise is that bad why don't the roper's just move?! i know it's their house and everything but if they were that bothered about it they'd just move house. If they forced alton towers to close oblivion or stop having fireworks display they would probably get a lot of hate mail which would be j...
