Re: Alton Towers Live - Music Concert 19th June 2011

Just heard of my friend who works at the resort that the queues are huge still to get off and people are not happy! Hope this doesnt get as bad as pink! The meadows have apparently been cleared now (the grass car parks to the left of the entrance road), but theres still big queues on the other car p...

They are excellent and I hope they are here for another 20 years. They fit with the theme perfectly.

Can anyone tell me what the logs bolted to the floor of the water channel are for? Do they create the changes in water direction/rough it up etc?


The logs are what actually create the rapids :D

Re: Meal Deals and general dining

Good places to eat - To be honest you cant beat a fully loaded meal or wicked zinger meal from KFC. Its £6 and you get a burger, large chips, large drink, piece of chicken/2 hot wings and a side order of beans, coleslaw or gravy. The only down side is the massive queue they sometimes get in there bu...

Re: unknown building!

This mysterious building warrants a visit from me at February Half Term meet as I'm staying on resort with others, will have to take photos too even if it's just an abandoned, boarded up place. I'm now wondering if there are any more abandoned buildings like this on resort, it's more than likely th...

Re: Visiting the park alone

Ive been towers a few times on my own and all i did was sit in the gardens for hours just relaxing and watching the skyride, with the odd trip up the valley to grab food or use the toilet etc. Didnt go on one ride and it was a very relaxing few hours and i really enjoyed it, although i couldnt help ...

Re: New Resort Branding 2011

I think this new design is acceptable, nothing offensive in my opinion, however i think in 2008 the pipes theme was used wayyyyy to much, with literally pipes on all promotional materials and maps etc, but over 2009/2010 i believe they have got the branding just right, still continuing with the pipe...
