The hotels and waterpark open back up this weekend after their winter maintenance periods, maybe we’ll start hearing more about what’s been going on around the theme park in the coming weeks 


A few of us are heading over to the Resort next weekend, so we may well have some stuff to share :)

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

When the towers have been open for Feb half term before, what rides have been open? The last time the theme park was open for FHT in 2015, the following areas of the park were open: Forbidden Valley Mutiny Bay Katanga Canyon (Congo River Rapids was closed) Gloomy Wood CBeebies Land Cloud Cuckoo Lan...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

ICYMI - Alton Towers have started the recruitment process for the 2020 season. With the process beginning earlier than normal, and with start dates for Rides and Food & Beverage staff being from 13th February, could this be an indication that we may see a return of the February Half Term event t...

Re: Alton Towers Ultimate Firework Spectacular

As reported on TowersTimes social media; Construction has begun for the Ultimate Fireworks Spectacular at Alton Towers. Part of the lawn is currently closed off, allowing lighting rigs and other structures to be delivered to the site. Are you excited for the season finale? https://i.imgur.com/wLg30q...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

Gaffer tape? It’s black and the room is dark. Surely it won’t be seen? It depends on the level of damage to the suit.  As Chris mentioned, the suits are very heavy so it's unlikely that something like gaffer tape would be up to the job. The last thing Thorpe would want is a piece of the suit fallin...

Re: The World of David Walliams - New for 2020

Can we please try and stay on topic with discussion around what The World of David Walliams will actually consist of, rather than referring to his comedic work that is in no way related to his books.

Thank you :)

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

About a month ago I bought tickets for Darkest Depths for the whole family. Our youngest is eight years old, and as Darkest Depths was recommended for those 8+ I booked tickets for all of the family. However, since then the maze changed recommendations to those aged 10+ instead of 8+, meaning it wo...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Fantastic! Thought I’d tried everything! Are there no fixed time slots for this? it won’t let me select a date/time like the other 2 mazes? It should ask you to select a date but there’s no need to book a time slot. Some of us booked one shot tickets for Mine Tours yesterday and didn’t have to book...

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

Hiya, just asking a quick question it's probably very obvious, I was at Scarefest and was watching the Wicker Man at night and noticed inside the head there is water sprayed out when a car has gone through just wondering if it is water and why? It’s water vapour that creates a mist effect which is ...

Re: SW9

I really don’t think we’ll see a concept such as the above for SW9.

What Towers really lacks is something with airtime. For this reason my preference would be for them to go with either an Intamin or Mack multi-launch coaster.

Thanks for sharing those links Morgan :)

I do like the piece of The Attic music. Having done the maze, it fits very well with the section that it covers.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I just hope that the Blade was removed to give Rameses Revenge a new home. Or I will be very sad... At this stage Blade is out of action for maintenance work, and despite Towers putting signage out that indicates it’ll be coming back, there are many who doubt this. Either way, if it does get remove...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Photos have emerged showing Blade has been removed from its position in Forbidden Valley. Signage around the ride indicates that this is just a temporary measure while the ride undergoes maintenance but there are some people on social media who believe this may be permanent. https://i.imgur.com/3Lmv...

A repeat of 2019 would be very disappointing. Even an Angry Birds Land refurbishment would be acceptable


Why would they refurbish an area of the park that was only opened 5 years ago? I can think of much more pressing issues at Thorpe than ABL being given a paint job.
