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...

That's a shame :/ I saw Enigma and that was truly outstanding, however in my opinion Svengali was definitely on par, the ending was absolutely incredible, a mind blowing finale! :D

Derren Brown - Svengali

I don't think there is a topic for this, sorry if there is  :P Last night I went to watch Derren Brown in Wolverhampton, and I was blown away. I'm not going to reveal anything that happened, as Derren asked for nothing to be said and plus I don't want to ruin it if anyone on here is going. Now ...

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? :)

Abit of feeling down and angry really.

Re: When I grow up...

When I grow up I want to go into management in either the hotel industry or the leisure industry. I know it sounds like some typical 'fan' response but I would love to be the manager of Alton Towers one day, and I mean that seriously!  You never know  :P

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 ...

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...

A lot of you probably won't know the name Joseph Kony, but it's time that was changed! Joseph Kony who lives in Uganda, is the worlds worst war criminal. In 1987 he took over leadership of an existing rebel group and named it the Lords Resistan Army (LRA). When Joseph Kony found himself running out ...
