Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

In regards to Subspecies: Operation Lockdown, did anyone go into this attraction back in 2015? I’m the type of guy that wants to know everything about every attraction there and this one seems to be the one that no one talks about. I actually remember not wanting to do this when I was at the park d...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

https://www.towerstimes.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/20190323_img_0324_hursty.jpg I do really like these Power of the Towers pin badges. I think it's because they're a more compact size and not overcomplicated - they feel much more like a staff pin. Without the card mount they do also feel like...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I certainly hope they do have permanent flames, It'll also be interesting to see what they do when it comes to Scarefest and fireworks as there is a good opportunity to create a strong atmosphere with audio, lighting and flames.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I visited today and didn't notice the chain acting up. Found the lift hill's staggering / rocking backwards and forwards peculiar but the rest of the ride was phenomenal. Caught the queue at good times during the day and didn't wait for more than 30 minutes per wait. Glad you got some short queues ...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

If she's in the graphics, I guess it's entirely possible that the prop isn't yet ready, but they do intent to add the it to the hearse at a later date... I'd like to think that's the case anyway. I hope so, it's certainly some feedback I'll pass onto the park. Gretyl will have been in the works for...

Very much agree with this, disappointed to not see her feature. Although, she is included in the logo on the hearse graphics.

It's because of the horrible event that happened at Drayton Manor where a child died :(. It's mainly for school trip season as the same has happened at Alton Towers.

It looks as if Alton Towers have removed this restriction now the school trip season is over, presumably we'll see the same at Thorpe.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I'm going to Alton Towers tomorrow. How have ride operations been this week? How busy has the the park been? I’ve been before but not since Wicker Man opened. Any tips on which rides to do when? If you have Early Ride Time, it's certainly worth heading straight for Wicker Man as soon as you can...

Had a few rides on Saturday, still absolutely loving the ride. A few observations; Baggage - Still problematic Preshow - I think they've had to make a change to the projector and there is now a faint projection "box", where the image isn't perfectly black around the edge Pre-show/Batching ...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

It so hard to chose, as each year has brilliant elements and, each maze they've unveiled has been really good. I think the challenge with comparing mazes between the years is so hard, is that there can be a variation between consecutive runs in same year! I do look back over the years, and remember ...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019?

I wonder why the default position of charging for entertainment based attractions (excluding CBeebies). When you think what is spent on the purchase, running and staffing of rides, can you avoid upcharges, and fund it from the ticket price, like with  Sea-life. I think the introduction of a  Dungeon...

Seems the interchangeable panels say "maximum" before the respective number:


Ah, I guess that's one way of doing it!
It seems an odd way of writing it, doesn't scan well; "People per boat maximum 7"

Still does the job though!

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019?

I'm a little apprehensive about the addition, and I think one of things I'm struggling with, is that I can't imagine the facade, particularly if it is for CCL /  CatCF. So I'm puzzling to imagine how that might work, CCL is very bright, and it would be a big contrast. And so it's the uncertainty of ...
