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...

I’m sure it’s already been asked, what is the direct link for the Altonville Mine Tour tickets?

I know P42 is altontowers.com/42

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.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Music and Videos

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...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

I've read that ERT does not exist during scarefest but Hotel guests get Fastrack to use instead. I've booked a stay in the Enchanted Village - will I still get the complementary Fastrack? You will. All guests staying in the Resort accommodation receive a complimentary Fastrack ticket to use as a su...

Good evening TTSP Forum, It is with sadness that we announce that Justin is leaving Team TTSP to focus on his real life commitments, which include securing a scare acting role at Alton Towers for this year’s Scarefest. We’re not going to tell you which maze he’s in, you’ll have to find out for yours...

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.

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

How can they justify £60 to do all mazes and park entry for non MAP holders?? The maze and park entry ticket option works out £2 cheaper than booking park entry and the Scare Maze combi ticket separately. I personally think that the £52 entry & maze ticket is decent value, as you’re essentially...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Alton Towers have posted a Scarefest teaser video on Twitter.

Captioned “Can you hear that?” and with water dripping in the background, I believe we have the first teaser for Darkest Depths.

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

You think there’ll be any more progress on this retheme now Scarefest’s  on the way? As of the weekend just gone I believe the rides in CCL were still open, the rumour was the area would close for the preparation work after the end of summer.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see CCL closed off at some p...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Food and Beverage

Morning all.  Off for my second trip to AT shortly. (First was only last month and I've caught the bug!) Anyway, I'm sure when I was there I saw a fast food place (in Mutiny Bay, perhaps?) that had some sort of Halloumi and veg wrap.  Does that ring a bell with anyone?  I'm also sure I've seen some...

After weeks of closure, Stealth re-opened on Sunday.

I’m gutted I’m unlikely to get back down to Thorpe to ride it again this season, it was sorely missed during my visit in mid-August.

I think it's pretty sad they are taking the only thrill ride out of the park, I know it's not for the target audience but it was still a great ride. Hopefully they move it to Thorpe or do something with it rather than just scrapping it! Rameses won’t be going anywhere except the scrap heap. Ripsaw ...

Re: Fright Nights

It’s unlikely that I’ll be able to get down to Thorpe for Fright Nights this year.

It’s a shame, but my last visit to Fright Nights was disappointing and I haven’t seen anything that makes me think “oooh, I need to try that”.
