Re: Off Peak Closure of SkyRide and Other Cuts

It was having a few problems yesterday! Kept starting and stopping and then broke down completely will a load of engineers heading to the Forbidden valley station, eventually it did open again but tbh i prefer to walk so closing it wont make a massive difference to my day! On the point of closing it...

Re: Thorpe Park - Ministry of Sound Club Nights

Im thinking the same rides as the Reload event will be operating? Swarm and stealth as well as a few small rides round that area?

Re: Thorpe Park - Ministry of Sound Club Nights

With how that is worded I would imagine ride close will be at 9pm at which time the MoS night will commence so more like riding at dusk than night but could be a decent event :) The park is open till 7pm that day and then closes till 9pm when the MOS events starts and it says that there will be exc...

Re: Thorpe Park - Ministry of Sound Club Nights

It says its starts at 9pm and finishes at 2am! Does this mean the rides (which ever rides are running) will be operating till 2am!?!

Saw Alive

Just been having a look through the live coverage of the Thorpe open day on towers nerd site and there is a picture of a sign which says that the Saw Alive maze will not be opening on certain days this season. Does any body know why this is and what dates its not going to be open this year? Cant see...

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

Now here are my thoughts: 2 ride’s SBNO for a whole season is not good. Why they need so long I’m unsure, a few months near the start (for excavation) and a month when the track arrives would surely suffice. Is there an alternative motive? Probably Alternative motive! I don't think so! As I have sa...

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

All construction sites need a site entrance for access for plant (diggers, cranes, etc), equipment, deliveries and materials! Seen as the only access to X-sector is behind the these two rides and in order to get to the proposed site vehicles will have to pass around them and in front of them they ha...

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

Nice to get the confirmation.  I am going to take them on their word for the reason of closing these two rides, but I don't think it would be that difficult or expensive to move them somewhere else, so I am still a little suspicious if there could be an alternative motives for this. Where the ...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Well after looking at the plans i think this is exactly what Alton Towers needs! Also i agree that there wont be a vertical drop or beyond vertical drop because of Oblivion, if they were putting another vertical drop ride in it would be located somewhere else than X-sector! Looking forwards to 2013 :D

Re: Scarefest 2011: General Discussion

Are they doing Fast passes for TOTT this year? Matt :) Yup, £5 a time. (I still reckon that it should be £6, considering that's how much you pay for the other two mazes, and get to walk-on)[/quote] Great! I'm not a fan of these fast passes as it holds the main Q up! I remember last year we didn't m...

Behind today's countdown door is a picture of the entrance to the COS and around it is advertisement posters of what you will find inside the COS The posters advertise the following: 1) The Living Du...

Re: Scarefest 2011

I've just filled in the Survey myself, and I mist say it has some pretty in depth questions about Clowns in there, but I guess it isn't so good for the people who aren't really scared of them! :hnotsure: But I could only imagine that they will either use this as part of the Carnival Of Screams, so ...

Re: Scarefest 2011

Has anyone else noticed the survey that has been put up on Facebook by Alton Towers? Lots of questions about Clowns! For example, what about clowns scares you, how long have you feared clowns, etc!

Research for the Scarefest i take it?

Re: Scarefest 2011

So with the mazes moving to the BH tent and opening earlier on in the day as most reports are suggesting, does this mean the boiler house will be changed to scrap the outdoor scene at the beginning with the security guard and the hut? Doesnt really have the same affect if the sun is out lol plus can...

Wow I have had it told to me by a hotel manager now, COS and BH are NOT officially happening yet. Still sounds like although its on the website they arnt set in stone yet :( guess that is why you cant buy tickets for them yet. :P Im pretty sure Alton wouldn't have put the information up about the m...

Re: Scarefest 2011

^ Sorry, but that's wrong... Boiler House is 100% in the BH Tent. Carnival's location is still to be confirmed but I assume that will be housed in the BH Tent too now, seeing as CHS has a function (great booking towers, idiots) ;) Quick question, where has it been confirmed that the mazes are in th...
