Re: An extra hour of daylight at Alton Towers?

So this would basically mean being on CET? In that case, wouldn't GMT become redundant? I don't see any benefits, either to Alton Towers or society in general. Either stick to how it is or change to GMT all year; although the proposed bill would mean not having to change the time zone when travellin...

Re: Restraint Preference

Lap bars where possible, and if that gives the best ride experience (TTD > Kinga Ka for example)

Obviously, with lots of coasters that's not possible. At AT the Air restraints are probably my favourite.

Re: Things people say about AT that you really hate!

*Queueing for Rita*

'Yeah it goes 100mph'
'Really? Doesn't look like it..'
'Oh, maybe they slowed it down for the rain'

*Around X-Sector*

'That oblivion looks crap, Saw goes even more than vertical and has loops and stuff'

Re: Scarefest: 16-31 October 2010 [NO SPOILERS]

Okay, I'm going in half term hopefully and I was wondering, I've been to scarefest several times before but never in any of the mazes, because the queue for ToT never seemed worth it. Would like to know people's opinion on whether I should just queue for Tot or pay a little extra for Carnival of Scr...

Re: A day in the life of a park drain. Or lack of!

As strange as this may sound, I really don't mind terrible rain at the Towers. In the last two hours we were there, there was a 10 minute heavy downpour and although the rides closed shortly, in the last few hours we were there we got on nemesis, air, thirteen and rita multiple times each. It also w...

Re: Nemesis Restraints

Yeah, the seatbelt doesn't do anything. Was there with my girlfriend a while back and she said something like 'Imagine if your seatbelt came off halfway through and you died' just before going on rita, so I undid my seatbelt for the fun of it :lol: She wasn't happy.. :P

- You almost punch people at thorpe for calling Nemesis inferno, 'Nemesis'. - You always correct people who say rita goes '100mph' despite whether you know them or not. - You lie to your parents about when vouchers run out so that 'they must take you or you'll have to pay :lol: ' - You can easily sp...

1. Of course, it's got to be submission! I JOKE. Got to be Nemesis for me, never ever gets boring, each time is as thrilling as the last and I love the fact that if you get the right day, you can squeeze in about 4 rides in 15 minutes at the end of the day :) 2. Th13teen. First ride since nemesis an...

Re: Quick Questions 2010

Hi, I'm just wondering, with the morning rush and all, which was is the quickest way to Th13teen? :)
Would it be through mutiny bay then cut left before hex,
Or past spinball and then do the same when I get to DF?
Thanks :D

Re: TH13TEEN Closure

I think it's a publicity stunt that will backfire on Morwenna. Many people could well not visit because of this. I don't see how this would get them any benefit out of people thinking their new ride will be shut. :? And if it is actually shut, unless it's for maintenance but they're trying to put a ...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but there's a sneaky way to get £19 off AP price. Use 2 for 1 ticket to get in, go to sales and information, show them the ticket which shows the price as £38 the other one showing £0, they take that price off the cost of the AP, even though you only paid half th...
