Re: Scarefest 2012: General Discussion

Well it's almost been a year since I have posted in this forum.  :P It's good to be back to read about the scarefest though! Just though I should share this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9oD6BNJJRk It's Alton Tower's advert for the Scarefest, it's really lazily done though, in my opinion. No ...

Skip to 4:57 to see the oblivion actors and the voice announcements back then during its construction, quite similar! Also skip to 6:40 to see more of the actors if you aren't interested in the construction of Oblivion (Not likely! ;) )

Re: Scarefest 2011: General Discussion

Changes noted since weekend: Oblivion has a blue light on the back of the drop. Runaway Mine Train has a green light and smoke machine in the tunnel. Air has additional lighting, including a blue one on final helix. Terror of the Towers Strobe maze music has returned to original from 2009-10. Carni...

Re: Scarefest 2011: General Discussion

Okay I'm confused now.. Living dummy? Gorrila? Finale?

All three I did not see this year. Confusing.

Scarefest 2012: General Discussion (Spoiler Warning)

Meh, since Scarefest 2011 has kicked off, there seems to be alot of people debating there was so much potential wasted this year. Personally I don't think that, but since people are starting to post what they think should be done for next year in the General discussion I thought it would be time to...

Re: Travelers on park today

You will not see them again most likely, the staff were tipped off they were coming next week but they decided to come the first weekend. (From the looks of it, it will stay that way)

Re: Scarefest 2011: General Discussion

I wasn't too bothered about lighting, the only thing that actually struck me was the lack of attention to Oblivion, like the spotlights and the skeletons on the fence were gone. At least you got a nice view of the Carnival from the top of Oblivion :P.

Re: Travelers on park today

I think the only way to describe them are as wasps, they swarm at a certain area (Towers Complex), they are pests and are not wanted. They even managed to leak into the splash landings hotel at the end of the day! We also got stopped in the middle of ToTT because the group infront of us hit an actor...

Excluding the travellers of course on Sunday. :P Zombie Scarezone: Quite fun, I liked how photography was allowed and they used that against me, I was taking a picture of one staring at me in the te...

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

I do though :)

I'm Chris, and yea, I've been here for ages, but I go through fazes of posting. :)
I like posting on the topics which involve Scarefest and ridiculous things going through the Resort.
I also promised myself I'll never use the Mr. Green smile ever again. :mrgreen:

Re: Fury at 'drug' pen

When i saw the pens the thought of illegal drugs never even occurred to me. When I was younger I always thought it was like some kind of 'thingie' used for medical purposes. As stated above, it's appalling to think everyone jumps to the conclusion it looks like drugs, as stated above (again ;p) it d...

I just hope they make Carnival of Screams "actually" scary this year! I mean some people may dissagree, but last year I just couldnt stop laughing! It was good fun however! I would also like to see something replace The Boiler House... It's just getting to that point where it isnt scary a...

Re: Scarefest 2011

I looked at the Scarefest page on their website and two images advertising it are on the page http://i840.photobucket.com/albums/zz329/xboxlulz/Screenshot2011-05-15at151516.png http://i840.photobucket.com/albums/zz329/xboxlulz/Screenshot2011-05-15at151535.png Both images are excellent :)

Re: Is Alton Towers worth it?

I think Alton Towers is definitely worth it, it takes 6 hours to get there and I go once a year at Scarefest, we always never regret going there even if it is expensive, we always drive to the wonderful place a day before we go in the park and we check in the hotels and chillax :P . Then for 2 days ...

Re: Oblivion - Now sponsored by Fanta

At a tuck shop outside my school I was about to reach for a Fanta but then I shouted at it infront of my friends "YOU BUTCHERED HER! YOU MONSTER!" and I reached for a Coke instead. I think i made my statement. :)
