Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

I'm just reading about the birthday perk with the premium pass, allowing freinds to join you at a discounted rate but must be used within 7 days of your birthday, how will that work in December, as my birthday is the 23rd? Join the club! Superb day for a birthday! The birthday pack is £20 extra isn...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Went up to upgrade at Alton yesterday afternoon. There was quite a delay of around an hour due to a system fault, I'd not been there as long but those that had been were rather annoyed, the managers didn't seem that great either. Regardless the kind member of staff plodded on and got us all done (we...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

The Merlin sale from Boxing Day onwards looks excellant value. I for one will be upgrading for the first time from a Premium Alton Towers pass to a Premium Merlin Annual PAss!

Re: Was th13teen really a failure?

I want to say the marketing was a failure but clearly that's the wrong word, as certainly people flocked in to ride - so in a way the marketing was a complete success for the theme park!

But hey, it's been a tidy enhancement to the Resort either ways!

Re: 2012 fireworks

I said I'd return when I had more time, didn't expect it to be nearly three weeks down the line! Once again I visited for all three displays, stopping over on the Friday night with my Mum and Dad. I enjoyed all three days, you can all moan and whinge about budgets and back in the day, but we are in ...

Re: 2012 fireworks

Somewhere around halfway during a gap in the music there was an almighty bang and flash behind the towers, but no effect in the sky? My first thought was that this was an aerial shell blowing out a rack and it seems I might have been right. If it's the same bang I am thinking off I too thought it w...

Re: Scarefest 2012: General Discussion (Spoiler Warning)

Just before the Scarefest started the Alton Towers Twitter feed mentioned there would be Scarefest mugs and green donuts. Whilst I didn't see any donuts I did buy a SW7 mug and t-shirt... is that the "Scarefest" mug or had they sold out? I didn't see any on the park that were Scarefest br...

Re: prices now out for 2013 - Feb and halloween and fireworks 2013

Can I ask where you found this info out? It's not that I don't believe you, I just love planning ahead and we discussed with some friends yesterday about stopping over next Scarefest, if I can start banding some figures out to them now for what it'd cost that would be great!

Re: Scarefest 2012: General Discussion

And yet if Alton blew their budget on adverts every year they'd be slated for not investing it on rides  :P

To be fair, us lot are gonna go anyway and I imagine that advert does enough for 90% of the GP! Chill!

Mugs! Yes! They had them for Scarefest and Fireworks in 2010, good to see them back for 2012 for Scarefest at least!

Re: Scarefest 2012: General Questions Topic

I've been asked if people can get in for free by dressing up. I told the "asker" this wasn't the case, they were just asking because of a rumour they had heard. Just wondering if one or more people could confirm my thoughts on this!

Alton Towers on BBC's Who Do You Think You Are

If this is in the wrong place feel free to move it, I think I'm ok here anyway! Basically there is another series of "Who Do You Think You Are?" starting on BBC1 on Wednesday at 21:00. Whilst reading about it in my TV mag, something caught my eye which some users here maybe interested in. ...

Extraordinary Golf - Gone?!

Hi folks, I've not really been on top of all things Alton this year, despite having an AP I've only been once on opening day! I ave picked up there have been numerous silly attempts at making drastic cuts, has the Golf been on the end of one of these? I wasn't looking to go but I just noticed that o...

Re: News: Reduced Attraction Operating Hours

Despite having an Annual Pass I have only visited once this main season, on opening day. Reading about actions like this don't make me want to go back! It could well be I don't go again until Scarefest, when last year I went once a month!
