Re: Alton Towers Waterpark Maintenence

I have to agree, unless they actually enforce it in the hotel then people will still continue to do it. At the weekend I took pictures from reception because I wanted memories of that weekend when I went to the water park. There was definitely no ulterior motive but nobody challenged me on it

Re: Least favourite Alton Towers ride

I would have to say Air but that is purely because I nearly pass out everytime I ride it. Before that started happening it would definitely have been either Submission or Enterprise. They are just pointless. The space could be used for something a lot more exciting...although Enterprise does scare t...

Re: Your Dream AT Merchandise

Funnily enough at one of the feedback forums I suggested that they have charm bracelets very similar to the Pandora style bracelets that are around at the moment. You could have a charm for each ride as well as special edition ones for events such as fireworks or the 10th anniversary of a ride etc. ...

Re: Quick Questions 2010

Does anybody know if you can buy the bounce back tickets if you have an annual pass?

I'm going this weekend and the weekend after so wanted to buy one this weekend for my partner to use the weekend after but I have an annual pass.

Thanks!

Re: Are you allowed to wear goggles on the rides?

This topic reminds me of when I went to Florida last. We all road Kraken with tights and goggles over our face. Was quite amusing. On Tower of Terror we all prayed and the picture was fantastic. You just have to try not to laugh which is incredibly hard!

Re: Top 10

Right lets give this a go! 1) Hex I absolutely adore Hex and always have. I prefer it to any coaster I have ever ridden. I love the themeing, the story and the way I get a tingling down my spine every single time I ride it! I don't get this on any other ride! 2) Th13teen I love this as it is easily ...

Re: Travelling to Thorpe Park from Stoke on Trent

You really want to try and avoid the M25 between 7-9. If there is an accident that morning you will have great difficulty getting to the park as once the traffic builds up on the M25, it can be hours until you are out of it!

Re: How would you go about building a new park in Wales

I'd definitely build one around the Llanduno area. There is some amazing scenery, it's already a tourist hot spot and would attract a huge amount of visitors from Liverpool, Manchester, Chester etc. Would be a perfect area for a park!

Re: Will the Towers ever get restored to their former glory?

I think a donation box would be a good idea however, as much as I hate to say it, I think it would need to be "manned" as you would get the same people who are happy to vandalise the Towers, trying to steal the money from the box. I hate admitting that this sort of thing happens but unfort...

Slightly off topic but is there any place that you can find a blueprint or something of the Towers with the names of each room? I suppose you could just ask Alton Towers. What do you need the blueprints for? Are you rich and planning to recreate the Towers down to the last brick? If so... CAN I HEL...

Re: Sun free tickets void if bought off ebay

I really don't see why people feel the need to buy these tickets when there are so many offers out there at the moment that can work out even cheaper! I have about 20 vouchers at home (a mix of 2 for 1 and half price entry) so they aren't difficult to get hold of. Prittycat, you say that it was conv...

Re: Th13teen or Saw: The Ride?

I too have never ridden a Eurofighter besides Saw so that was quite an experience in itself (especially as I don't like lift hills at the best of times!) I think that the themeing of Saw is fantastic and they really have done a good job with it. However, I don't find the coaster very enjoyable. It's...
