I am in the same boat as woodla, although I might be able to help out a little bit too as I've been to florida (orlando) every year with the family for the past 14 years, so if you don't mind me saying, I'm a bit of an expert! Halloween horror nights is a MUST. (That's all we've been going for for t...

Re: Florida Advice?

I know I'm a bit late to the party, but I can provide plenty of advice, as we go every October/Halloween and have been going for quite a few years now :) Of course, I know you've already booked it, and my opinion is going to be a bit biased, but the best time to visit is in October (Especially if yo...

Re: Alton Towers Birthday: 80's Concert - 23rd May 2010

Just got off the phone from Alton, and spoke to a woman there who said, and I quote: "The £5 for AP Holders is simply for those who want a GUARANTEED spot at the concert. If you have an AP, you can still enter the park, and attend the concert, but there's no guaranteed seat [at the concert].&qu...

Re: 80's Concert Mini Meet - Sun 23rd May 2010

I'll be there on the day, but will be there with 3 friends, one of which has never been to AT so might not have time to meet up with you guys, but if you see me, make sure to say hi :)

Re: Most blatant queue jumping ever!

Crofty, slightly off topic here, but I'm guessing you were the group of guys in front of us then, I was there with my brother-in-law and we were all laughing about the girls and how they were being so loud and ridiculous. I think the best quote from them was "We won't go back to our friends as ...

Re: Powerful Videos

Wow. Those previous two are great! Seen the september 11th Adagio for strings before, but never the second one. I can't seem to find the video I was going to link here, so just look at the video below instead. And this one is simply the most moving video I have ever seen: [url=http://www.youtube.com...

Going from what I was told by an employee, and my experience from Thursday, if the ride breaks down then expect to be waiting around 2 hours, as I've heard that it's constantly the same thing that's causing the break-downs. Went down on Thursday again queued up at 10am for 1.5 hours, it broke down, ...
