Re: End of Season Review 2017

It's been a good year at the park, my highlight has been seeing the construction of SW8 for sure, it looks like it'll be a really solid attraction. My only criticisms of 2017 have been the short opening times throughout most of the season and the multiple SBNO attractions, but having said that the ...

Re: Fireworks

Track listing was diabolical, so clichéd that Firework was played, and Castle on the Hill? coincidence or intended? I hope it wasn't intended as it isn't a castle. The music around the park is unique and atmospheric, I don't know why they don't just create/use this kind of music for the firework sho...

Re: Galactica - A worth while investment?

Definitely not worthwhile long term. The only thing I like about it is the music....by far

Re: Ride Closures/Removals in 2016

I can't believe hex, that is a fantastic ride that I always go on when I go.
Not surprised about the others tho.
Good job I still have the music.

If this is true, then I don't know what Merlin were thinking.

Surely drugs were involved...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Take this with a grain of salt as quite frankly I don't think they'd know, they may of been briefed on its re-opening given today's articles regarding Nick Varney but as I said the person in question is unlikely to know or have been told and is probably guess work. https://instagram.com/p/8I5WA4oIM...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Was at towers today and The Smiler was being tested for the majority of the day with many different dummy combinations.
Btw who was the guy with shorts on today with a TT/SP lanyard on? Because at one point I was standing behind you watching smiler being tested lol.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Newer doesn't always mean better :) Each to their own I guess. As long as figures return. No I totally agree, a vast majority still think nemesis is better. What I'm saying is tho the smiler is the latest world first coaster in towers that is unfortunately closed until further notice so people won'...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I still don't believe people are staying away from towers DUE to the incident like these newspapers are saying. They are merely waiting for the rollercoaster to reopen. I hope that isn't the case as that would be highly worrying for Alton Towers, if people are staying away due to one attraction out...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

After having a quick browse of the Alton Towers Twitter feed this morning, it appears we may be seeing another ticket price increase in the near future. When asked how much it would be to enter during Scarefest using a 2 for 1 voucher, Alton Towers replied with the following: @altontowers: pricing ...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I doubt getting the Smiler reopen this season will make much different to the number of guests in the park. If they wanted to go the park they would go. I think a big reason behind a lot of people's decision to not visit the park is because The Smiler isn't open. Once it re-opens (be it this season...

I love paranormal books.

Re: Downtime 2015

I was there Monday 10th, Nemesis seemed to have issues in the morning. We walked across to go on Rita but it stopped as we got there, so we went on Thirteen instead, by the time we got back from that and watched the engineers try and fix Rita for 15 mins or so they sent the empty cars around and th...

Re: Books

I'm currently into my theme-parky books. I read Tales from the Towers , Creating my own Nemesis and Smoke and Mirrors . I also like a bit of horror, I read The Woman in Black a few years ago and thought that was quite good. Saying that, I am looking for another good horror books, any recommendation...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

It might have something to do with it being an american site ;) I don't think it's too worrying, if all goes well Alton can get the people back by scarefest so long as they can drown out the non-stories from the Mirror and such. :) Indeed, I agree all eyes are on scarefest to get the customers back...
