Re: Chessington Incident - 7.05.2012

On the one hand I agree, but on the other Chessington need to be seen to be doing a full, thorough safety check of the entire attraction, whether it needs it or not.

Re: TTF sex scandal!

It's really not hard to understand. The change will allow people of the same gender to marry each other the way that people of opposite genders can now. It's really that simple. Forgive my ignorance - but cant same sex couples already do this by means of a civil partnership? A good comparison is se...

Re: The POSSESSIVE PRONOUN topic

I... Gosh I don't know. The responses in this thread really have thrown me. I get the feeling that Simon made this thread half in jest, and yet people have jumped down his throat as if he has been incredibly rude, insulting and patronising. He certainly hasn't been any of those things (the third per...

Re: Family room for 4 adults? More like 2 adults and 2 hobbits.

To be fair, I'm really not sure what you expected when booking a family room for four adults - as has been said, they're family rooms, designed primarily for families. Doesn't mean they don't accommodate four adults (and as such they'll certainly be booked out to groups of four adults), but it's rea...

Alton Towers Continues Legal Battle Against Ticket Touts

In regards to the free tickets being "void after resale", how is it even possible for any of the park's staff to look at the tickets and tell they have been resold? 'Cause loads of people on eBay etc. are stupid enough to post pictures of the tickets, barcodes and all, on their listing. T...

Re: Warwick Castle parking with WC Annual Pass

Given that it's the very last clause, it wouldn't surprise me if this was added recently as a direct response to the issue :P.

Either way, agree that it's taking the mick a bit to use it as a general car park.

Re: Warwick Castle parking with WC Annual Pass

The barriers at Warwick are operated by the card itself, much like those at the southern parks (though oddly they don't use the same Skidata system), so strikes me as likely that uses are logged.
