Re: Scarefest 2012: General Discussion

Heading there on the 31st. Yep on Halloween!  8) Based on what I heard so far, I hope its not as bad as the staff preview day, considering I have brought the scaremaze tickets today. You're going on Halloween? Good luck! I went on Halloween the first time I ever went, didn't get in the park un...

Do people think that some rides may close tomorrow due to high winds and heavy rain? Just curious  :?


Most likely, we had a lightning storm and heavy rain so they shut quite a lot of the rides.

Re: Drayton Manor 2012 Season

I went to Drayton Manor yesterday for the first time in years, and I've got to say I was very disappointed. I must firstly say well done to the improvements made to the eating facilities and shops, they are much better! It was great to see that they don't just spend money on new rides. However, when...

Re: 2014-2019: Possible Developments?

I think it would be WAY to expensive for the towers to built actually :lol: And just imagine if the car got stuck in mid air. The staff at Alton will have to actually try to do EFFORT Try to do effort? I think you'll find Alton Towers have the best Theme Park staff in the U.K. When situations occur...

I know this isn't exactly to do with the current conversation, but I didn't see a point of starting a new one, anyone know where there are 2 for 1 vouchers for Drayton? :)

Re: Scarefest 2012

I rang Alton Towers today about the scare rooms, and yes there aren't going to be any this year, she said that instead there will be something else on the park. I'm confused to why they wouldn't do scare rooms, they always sell out  :? supposedly its because there was to much noise being made ...

Re: Is the park ever quiet these days?

I know it sounds mad but in 2010 I went in the first week of the six weeks holiday and it was dead :shock: Either all the children's parents were at work or everyone decided to go on holiday it was brilliant! I did pretty much everything twice or three times, I walked on Th13teen twice. The longest ...

Iv'e been evacuated from Duel :) And believe me it's not as good as you might think, we were near the end of the ride, so it took 40 minutes to evacuate us! We were stuck for ages with the effects on, it was pretty creepy, but for most of the time the house lights were on and the effects were off. W...

Re: Submission & Enterprise: Closed (SBNO) for 2012

If these rides are SBNO for budget cuts and are opened in 2013, I'm scared to think about what they might shut in 2013 for budget cuts if they have to.

Re: Submission & Enterprise: Closed (SBNO) for 2012

Are you sure they haven't been removed from the Fastrack page because they have short queues anyway? Alton might have thought to themselves they get short queues there is no point them having Fastrack. We will know for sure if they are removed from the website, but at the minute they are still on th...

Re: Amanda Thompson to receive OBE

She gave up with Pleasureland Southport way to quickly, she must of had it all planned if Cyclone was pretty much demolished straight away after it closed. If she was a good business woman and actually cared for her business and theme parks she would have tried to save it. But no, she likes destroyi...

Re: Scarefest 2012

What I think that Towers should do for 2012 1) Invite external companies/films to sponsor and/or create scare mazes. Towers is big enough to have at least 15 scare mazes inside it. Every Halloween you get a couple of horror films being released at the cinema. These films, I am sure, are looking for...
