Re: Alton Towers - Offers, Vouchers and Discounts

Does anybody know if the 50% off Alton Towers Hotel offer was in the Sun this year?

In 2012 I got 50% but wasn't looking out for the promotion this year.

Re: 2012: Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs – The 4-D Experience

Also from an Merlin point of view, this will be the first Ice Age themed ride in the world, almost like ben 10 or thomas land for towers I'm not so sure of that? http://www.themeparkreview.com/parks/ph ... inkid=4932 I really hope they do a good job of theming and don't just use a generic theatre t...

Re: 2012: Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs – The 4-D Experience

Also on a side not, I hope the CCL Theatre isn't used as I believe the park need to keep their already limited live show line-up. It's been confirmed by the park in a press release that the Cloud Cuckoo Land Theatre will be home to the new 4D Cinema.[/quote] Ah, I wasn't aware there was a press rel...

Re: 2012: Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs – The 4-D Experience

This is good news! They need something to compete with Thomas and Nick Land. I think in order for it to be fully successful a Story Book Land re-theme is in order. I don't think it would cost a mega amount to re-theme this tiny area. I also think that a movie franchise of this size would comfortably...

Re: 2012: Nemesis - What Lies Beneath... Part 2

Been watching this thread for a while. I really hope this is not a drop tower. As many people have said, it would be too similar to their Thirteen, plus I just think it will be a disappointing ride. Also, I agree with people that this is not its final name. It will just confuse guests with Nemesis a...

Re: Facebook Deals free entry event.

Had an excellent day today! Was a bit worried when at 10AM it only seemed that 4 rides were open and Nemesis was on one train, but then everything seemed to open and Nemesis had an extra train on. Got a free Hotel stay but non of my mates could stay, so drove them back to Manchester and just about t...

Re: Quick Questions 2010

Hey!

Does anyone know if there are hairdryers, or plug sockets for hairdryers in the Spa and Water Park? Also, what time toes the bar in Splash Landing start serving their late night snacks, and what are they like?

Thanks!

Hey! Just wondering if anyone could do me a huge favour? I am doing a project on Alton Towers and need some information such as gate figures, profits, priced over the years… you know, stuff that can be analysed. Would be a huge help if anyone could point me in the right direction to where I could fi...

Re: Alton Towers: 10 Year Plan Revealed!

I am pretty pleased with these plans. When I first thought about an entrance in FV, I thought it would suck, as other people have said, it would be way to crowded and puts all the other attractions too far away from the entrance. I also don’t like the sound of two entrances, as I think it is nice to...

Re: Ug Land 2010

I would quite like the name “Poltergeist” for Rita. It gives the same sort of idea as Spirit would, but also sounds good for a launch coaster that catapults you.

The food is actually really nice, there is a decent choice and plenty of it. It is a fantastic price as well only being just unde...

I will be on park on a school trip tomorrow, so if I get chance, I will try and get some pictures (although I don’t want to look creepy taking pictures of a children’s play area :P ).

Re: Quick Questions 2009

Meh, don’t think I will bother then seeing as you can get half price tickets that will get you in for a few quid more. They used to cost a lot less.

Thanks for the info though! :)

Re: Quick Questions 2009

Can you still buy tickets to come back later in the year at a reduced price at sails & info kiosks? If so, how much are they and how many can you get away with buying?

Thanks in advance! :)

Re: Rights Of Security Guards

Interesting this topic has come up as I had a run in with a bouncer last night. He was completely un-reasonable. Me and my girlfriend went back in to the club after standing outside for a bit, and as we went in to the clubroom, the floor was extremely wet and slippery, with no sign saying it was, an...

Is it true about Valhalla and it might not be operational within the next few years 2010/2011? 4. Why ...

Re: What's The Best Flat Ride For Alton In The Future?

People are always suggesting moving Blade to MB, but I think that would be such a bad idea. The area is already pretty full, and a pirate themed pirate ship is so boring and common. I love Blades current theme, and I think if it where to be moved to another area, they should move it to maybe gloomy ...
