Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Mystic timbers looks great! Although the main drop on Wickerman is half the size of that on MT, that will surely affect speed, I’d say 35/40ish but that is a guess.. It’s over a third shorter too.. I really hope the pre show and potential after show in the shed make this a full ride experience as it...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

As already posted on towers street the outer covers have all come down off the theming element pretty much leaving what I would say is almost certainly a ram of some sort..

It was around the same time last year. What must be remembered is that there will be an established team already in place from previous years. Additional actors, presenters, and dancers are then integrated into the team. Good luck for your audition though :)


Cheers dude, would love to do it!

Re: Scarefest

Alton are holding open auditions for scarefest actors, presenters and dancers over the coming month!

Seems a little late to be leaving it I thought they rehearsed for months!

I'm giving it a go though :)

Re: Scarefest

It's really disappointing to see people's reviews of tott.. This has always been my favourite maze and the strobe finale always excites me! I didn't go last year and will be visiting next week so all other mazes and zones will be new for me. Anyone think people's opinions of tott have dropped due to...

Re: Scarefest

You think these are real figures and there won't be any for sale on the day or are towers just trying to make people panic and buy in advance? They always reserve some tickets for on the day purchase but these are in limited quantity. I highly doubt that they are blocking out time slots on purpose ...

Re: Scarefest

Looking on the booking site, a lot of maze slots have gone on most days already. You think these are real figures and there won't be any for sale on the day or are towers just trying to make people panic and buy in advance? I've never had trouble other years getting them on the day but I always went...

Re: 2013 Scarefest

Can anybody confirm if the extreme tickets have been available or completely sold out early on? Anyone know the price, is it per maze or for both? And is it worth it

Re: Scarefest 2012

Those prices are a "supplement"... Do you have to book a normal room through SCAREFEST then pay this price on top? Yeah those prices are in addition to the cost of a room  :) Also just noticed this on the scarefest page, don't know if it's already been mentioned!! "Sanctuary Dev...

Re: Scarefest 2011

Guy's no where on the alton towers website does it say that you have to buy a theme park ticket to enter COS or BH, so I really can't see them putting the mazes in the park? what about all the people that go to scarefest year on year and stay in the hotel and aren't members of this group and are ob...

Re: Standardized Queue Time Displays

On a slightly different note, I'd love to see some sort of text service where you could receive a text with up to date queue times to your phone while your on park, this would be so much easier and I know the technology is out there and could be easy manipulated to make it work for Alton. It seems s...
