Re: Travelers on park today

Yes, i fully understand the difficulty merlin may have, however, had they pointed out that extra security measures would be in place, then I could have looked and made an informed decision. As I said I know merlin can't help the behaviour, still think customers booking should be made aware this par...

Re: Travelers on park today

The trouble is, Merlin can't say to people "by the way, the day you have booked will be swarming with Gypsies" because that is "racist". I've been there when they have been on park and it's not nice, but there is no point complaining to the park as it's not their fault. Merlin p...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

Could anyone say how the ride is rated 12a? Or is that part of Alton Towers hype machine?

I think I have, but I've been evacuated on so many dark rides I no longer know which ones I have and which ones I haven't!

Re: Alton Towers Toilets

The only toilets I use on a regular basis at the Towers are the ones in Gloomy Wood, for some reason. Last time I used the ones on Towers Street I got confused, because it was playing a tape with some girls talking about all the rides and I thought it was just people having a rather loud and obnoxio...

Re: Can u remember the first ride you ever went on at Alton Towers?

The first ride I went on was The Beastie, which was terrifying when I was six. Then it was The Haunted House....:(

Re: 2012 ticket price is £42

I don't mind the price now being £42. Like a lot of people have said, Alton Towers should be a premium attraction. But my worry is that sooner or later the price will go over £50, which is a hell of a lot of moneys :/

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

In a way, I want to miss the rides this season. I don't really like rides being SBNO, because it's like the park is telling me that I'm not allowed to ride them (I know technically they are, but hopefully you know what I mean). But then I remembered that Submission is rather painful, and Enterprise ...

Re: Scared to go on Oblivion!!!!

Oblivion is nowhere near as scary as it looks. It's pretty weird, because I'm sometimes intimidated by it, yet in reality its quite tame

Re: Alton Towers Dreams: How Obsessed Are You?

I dream about Alton Towers, but in every dream its a wildly different park that in no way resembles the real place, yet shares the name. The park is rarely realistic, and usually includes current rides with a weird twist (like Oblivion being over a ravine, or Thirteen being located outside the park,...

Re: Times when your friends/school go to AT but you can't.

Some of my friends went on a Saturday in July a few years back. I didn't go because I went to a small-yet-awesome music festival, and also because I was convinced it would be packed. Apparently it was an awesome day with barely anyone there. On a Saturday in the middle of July! Was rather gutted :/

While nothing scary has ever happened to me on Oblivion (apart from nervousness in the queue on my first few goes), the restraints coming loose has happened to me on Nemesis before, and that was scary.

Re: Old McDonald's Farm Yard - Future

I meant a kids coaster like the Beastie. Alton Towers no longer has a starter coaster for it's youngest guests so I was highlighting the fact that they could maybe space it out over the land that the ice show tent occupies as well. I agree that the park really needs a starter coaster, but I think t...

Re: Old McDonald's Farm Yard - Future

I always thought the point of Old Macdonald's Farm was that it was aimed at the very young? If that's the case, isn't it good that the area isn't crowded? It gives little kids space to run around and not have to wait in line. From an enthusiast's point of view, the place may seem neglected, but I'm ...

Re: Changes, and thoughts for the future.

So what about all the permanent rides the six flags chain moves around their parks? If it was so popular why did it come 4/5th in that poll ;) Six Flags has the money, and is a big enough brand, to move rides from one park to the next if they so wish. Merlin do the same thing from time to time, tho...

If they don't use the exact Nemesis theme music, they'll at least use a remixed soundtrack. Nemesis' theme tun...

Re: 2012: New Attractions

The other thing I noticed about the name is that there's a question mark at the end. It would be a bit odd if that is actually the name. I can't imagine someone saying "I love What Lies Beneath?". But then again who says "I love Charlie and The Chocolate Factory: The Ride"? Afte...
