Re: Am I too big for the rides?

I'm also looking for information on chest restrictions on the Smiler. I'd love to go on but my bust has increased. I couldn't put the restraint down on Nemesis or Oblivion or Rita on the test seats in May last year. However looking on the Alton Towers website there seems to be no chest restraint gui...

Re: 2013 Offers, Deals, Vouchers and Discounts

Im still waiting for mine too! I asked for September/October. Sent mine off on the 9th march, which included a bonus token The Sun had sent me the week before the promotion started.

Re: Quick Questions 2011

Do Alton Towers allow you to use the 2 for 1 Sun vouchers for the Ultimate ticket - Theme Park + Mazes Scarefest tickets?? Or will it just allow me a standard adult theme park ticket and I would have to buy the Mazes and boiler house and carnival of screams ticket separately?? Many thanks :D

Is the guy that draws the caricature pictures still doing them this season?? If so is he still on the path towards Gloomy wood?? I'm more than certain that's where I spotted him last year in August when I went, but I wasnt sure if he's there every year or if it was perhaps just a little extra thing ...

Re: Being told to use Single Rider Queue?

I went back in August, and this happened to my partner... I was some distance behind him and slowly dragging my feet, breathing deeply, and convincing myself that Oblivion was worth the feeling I was experiencing in the pit of my stomach! I've been on it so many times before, but the older I get the...

Re: Duel: General Discussion

Usually Duel bores me, and my finger always ends up hurting half way through, to which I just want to give up! However I went yesterday for the 1st time in 4 years and have to say that indeed my finger started to hurt but despite this I actually really enjoyed it this time round! It seemed a bit sca...

Re: Height Markers/Restrictions

Hahaha Mr Stick, hes awesome! Surely though Mr Stick should be attached to the groud...like I asked before, a slight tilt in the way he's held, will alter the height of the point that is acceptable?

Re: Height Markers/Restrictions

If it would cause too much hassle and queues trying to measure kids etc, a sign perhaps saying the option to have your children measured at guest services or something. I dont know just an idea...i just think that would save alot of dissapointed children and us wondering exactly how high is 120/140c...

Re: Height Markers/Restrictions

It's actually a bit of a bug-bear, and I think that Alton should adopt the system I found in most US parks - a metal measuring stick, manufactured with a T-bar at the top to the exact height. At the air gates, the op would simply "twizzle" the stick and see if it passed over the kid's hea...
