Re: Alton Towers Waterpark

Went to the Waterpark today, there is a box on the side of the entrance to the rush slide where you select an option. I selected the ITHOTMK and all that happened was it played (very quietly) but there was no interactive lights or anything. Nice that they've added something new but a little bit of a...

I've had 4 free fastracks for The Smiler from Alton Towers Twitter for my fiance's birthday. And also 4 free waterpark tickets to use between Nov 2014 ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

We had car number 3.1 on Friday when we rode The Smiler. I was sat on the back row, far left. I didn't find the ride itself rough personally, however you can feel it jolting about underneath you, and after the indoor inversion you don't half hear a massive 'clunk' at the back. Would be worrying to s...

Re: The ride you have queued up the longest for at Alton is???

40 minutes for Air. I budget my time when I go so I avoid queues and I hate queues. Always go when the park isn't busy too. Haven't queued more than 5 minutes for The Smiler yet.

Re: Quick Questions

I'm going to the park in two weeks for the hotel and waterpark offer. Does anyone know if any bus services still go to Alton during closed season? Don't fancy getting the taxis again (although the company I used last time for £19 each way were very good).

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Quick question from a MAP virgin. Used it last week at Birmingham Sea Life, great afternoon. Anyway, the 20% off - what does it cover (I know it covers food/drink/merchandise), but where do you get 20% off, which attractions does anyone know? Would be useful to know before going to Warwick Castle ne...

I have The Smiler one and it sits on my work jacket just underneath the 'Sainsbury's' logo, looks like a sponser haha.

Re: February Half Term 2014

Personally feel Thirteen would be a great addition, but it'll never happen 'cause of the yearly scheduled maintenance, I'd absolutely love it though.

It's a decent enough line up, and I'll be staying over in the hotel for it, can't wait. :)

Re: Taxi from Stoke on Trent train station?

The reason I ask is because we are arriving at 7.21am and will want to get there to check in with the hotel and get there in time for ERT. We will get the bus back on the 15th, so would just be one way in the taxi. Isn't the 14th the first weekday of scarefest so there is no ERT, park opens at 10am...

Taxi from Stoke on Trent train station?

Hey, Desperately need help with this. Coming on the 14th and arriving at 7.21am at Stoke station. Does anybody have any decent taxi numbers that will take us to the park? The big question is how much are taxis from the station to Alton Towers and how long does it roughly take? Thanks in advance, Adam.
