Re: Spa: Makeover coming in February 2012

I love the spa!
I Can't think of anything I'd like changing, I think it's a great place.
Only thing I'd like is heaters in the changing rooms, there's nothing worse than the shock of walking from the sauna to the changing room!

Re: Thorpe Park 2011

I had an epic day at THORPE PARK sunday just gone.
Longest queue was 40 mins at one point for Storm surge.
Everything was open.
longest we queued for anything was 15 mins, we'd done everything by 1pm.

I think I'm one of not many that will be going back to THORPE PARK this year, love it!

Re: Weekend only jobs at AT

Yep Alton Towers do employ people for just weekends.
A few of my friends are studying so can only work weekends, if you just put it on your availability sheet then its fine :)

Hope this helps.

Re: Scarefest 2010

My Review Of The Hotel Mazes Carnival Of Screams I really enjoyed the carnival. Some great jump scares especially the beginning. The mirror maze was fun with the actors interacting with the guests. The entrance to the maze is pretty creepy, a giant clowns face! The maze overall is good fun but its ...

Re: Haunted Hollow Staff

You don't need to put security on but be clever by putting actors down the walk, then not only can they provide entertainment but deter others from going too far. Simple really... Agreed! I didn't think of taking small kids through what is afterall supposed to be a child friendly scary walkway. It ...

Re: Scare Mazes For Dummies/Wimps Like Me!

Scaremazes are brill! I was in your position last year, I did the Thorpe mazes first and came out laughing, it's really nothing like I thought it'd be. One thing I would say, is remember it's made to be fun! It wouldn't be there if 99% of people didn't enjoy their experience. Make sure your with a g...

Re: Haunted Hollow Staff

I agree with what your saying but also i agree with the others, people are just having fun, and its very hard for it to be stopped UNLESS anyone is being abusive to other people. Afterall, anyone with a problem with being scared cant come to scarefest and expect not to be scared, its their own fault...

Re: Alton towers resort lacking polite and friendly factor?

One thing i am not, is stupid. If you continued reading, i said i would never do that sort of thing. It was purely exaggerated expression. For as regular as i am i wouldn't want to do anything of that sort. Thanks for the advice but i am mature enough to not do that sort of thing in a place thats b...

Re: Alton towers resort lacking polite and friendly factor?

I felt like punching the staff in the face the way the spoke. One thing I'd suggest is not punching a staff member, you'll either get yourself hurt or be banned from the park, the consequences aren't worth thinking about. If you ever aren't happy with the service you recieved then head to guest ser...

Re: Oblivion drop not stopping

As has been said before, there is no ride control to stop certain cars for longer than others.
Its all mechanical, there is no way to control it.

as for the orange wig... yes, its gone :)

Re: Terror of the Towers 2009 Review

Great review! This years TOTT was my first, and with only plucking up the courage to do my first scare maze just days before at thorpe, I was very scared and didn't look at much the first time, however the times after I saw how much detail and effort had gone into it, its just amazing. Reading that ...

Nope, That would be pretty cool though.
There's no way for the operator to change the time it takes for the shuttle to release.

Ahh, I love rush, it's amazing.
yeah, you fall into the seats with your legs pointing up, so when the lapbar comes down you are very well held down! (hope that makes sense!)

It's definatly worth plucking up the courage for its a brilliant ride!
