Re: Welcome to the new forums!

Have to say - I'm not the biggest fan of the redesign... Whilst I don't post on here much anymore I do still read the forum on occasion, and for me the redesign is just too 'blocky'. A few constructive points: - The top menu bar (on both the site and forums) just looks a tad bland - whilst I can see...

Re: Towers' Pricing

Hmmm, Waterpark "On the Day" ticket prices are blank - expect these to go up too maybe they are updating the page  http://www.altontowers.com/tickets/#Waterpark As if by magic, the following has also appeared on that page: To visit Alton Towers Waterpark, tickets must be booked in ad...

Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

Direct link to UK version of voyages-sncf.com: www.tgv-europe.com - seems to be connected to the exact same database price-wise, just different language! :)

IGNORE it when it tries to redirect you to Raileasy though - they are rip-off merchants as previously mentioned! :)

Re: The 'I Feel Down' Topic

Well I am still single and apart from 2 or 3 hook ups, I haven't been in a relationship for 3 1/2 years. And everywhere I look people are getting hooked up. I have a great career, lots of friends and am on the go doing lots of exciting things a lot of the time. I just don't know what I am supposed ...

Re: Off Peak Closure of SkyRide and Other Cuts

I can't speak on their behalf, but I imagine this change in policy will make the park a no-go attraction for guests in wheelchairs. I know it's not from a wheelchair guest's perspective, but more from a mildly disabled person perspective (for those who don't know - I have a slight natural limp due ...

Merlin can't win.  :roll:


Yes they can - by realising that Towers is the premier park in their UK portfolio and fund it as such - rather than cutting every last corner they can. :)

Edit: Appears I replied to an old post, but my point still stands!

Re: Negativity

Blizzard, might I also suggest leading a campaign against one side of a two-sided debate (i.e. your idea for a sig campaign against negativity) without contributing to the debate yourself would make you seem like a 'troll' (I don't like that word!) - thus you suggesting that the negative people are ...

The gondolas look identical in size/shape to the Towers ones - wonder if they're going to bee brightly coloured to stick out a sore thumb like the ones at Towers are too? :P

No, breakfast is for hotel guests only :) (presumably due to capacity issues)

Getting up at 4am, and on a train to Stoke from Euston at 7am - oh wait, I do this EVERY time I visit Towers :(

The only reason that some people call that early is because that's the only time they can preach, and personally if I'm out early and.

I do not particularly think accusing Merlin of general "stiff handedness" with regards to budgetary information is particularly helpful at the moment, given that much of this we have no "actual" proof of. Let's not talk about Disney, Europa or anyone else - let's just focus on t...
