Re: How old were you when...

I was 6 when I went on Nemesis so I've been told! I remember wearing my big school shoes so I was just tall enough. I was desperate to go on as I had an older brother, I was very jealous! I hit 1.4 when I was 9/10 around 2011 summer season. I definitely wasn't actually 1.4, with the shoes I only ju...

Re: Alton Towers - Quick Questions

When I went the other day they had drained Nemesis. I was wondering why they do this and how often it's done? There were a few items down in the valley but didn't think it would be done for that alone.

Re: Park tips and tricks

Single rider queue isn't always guaranteed to be quicker, check the length of the SRQ when you can as sometimes large groups join it. Always check the free app as they have exclusive money off deals! Also the website has some print off vouchers. And I definitely agree about the free fall thing on Ob...

Re: Ride you have queued up for the longest is?

Can't remember the exact time but it did feel like an age when queueing for Hex when it first opened. Though to be fair I found the videos and suspense of the secret very interesting when I was younger so didn't feel as bad as some other rides.

Re: Alton Towers Freebies

Think I've only ever received free fast track during Scarefest staying at the ATH to make up for lack of ERT. I also remember there being an absolute tonne of free chocolate one year at Easter when they had the chocolate volcano which pleased my sweet tooth greatly :D

Re: Fright Nights

Also seen that it's open for Fright Nights on Friday 10th and 17th this year, has it been like this on Fridays in past years? And if so is a better day to go on or no real difference? I've always done AT Scarefest in the past!

Re: As an Alton Towers fanboy/fangirl, what comments hurt yo

When I went on Hex on a opening weekend of Scarefest, when a certain unwanted clientèle had turned up as usual, they were talking, shouting, running around and throwing things in every room. It hurt me that they could be so entirely disrespectful! :no:

Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

How busy does everybody think it will be this weekend? Its opening weekend right? Is it usually very busy on opening weekend? Obviously theres no big launch of anything new. Every opening weekend I've been to has been quiet, especially when there's no new attraction! The likes of Nemesis and Oblivi...

Re: On-Ride Breakdown Experiences

Been on a few ride break downs, like the up and downy Air seats, but the most fun is always Duel! We got stuck for about 10 minutes but all the guns, electronics and points were still working so we all kept shooting the entire time. Definitely had repetitive strain injury when I came out of there!

Re: Help me get over my fear of Nemesis?

In terms of nerves, I would recommend familiarising yourself with the ride experience/circuit, legend behind the theme and the music before you go(look in the TT media part of the site) and when you're there, take a moment to listen to the music and admire the scenery/themeing and tell yourself how...

Re: Stop feeling sick?

They tested a lot of things on Mythbusters for motion sickness and they found one of the most effective things was ginger tablets :) really worked for them! Plus the medical motion sickness tablets but as mentioned before the side effects aren't great.

Re: Ticket Prices To Rise for 2014

I've also just seen the new drinks capsule prices for the Merlin Annual Pass users (one off £1.99 charge and 75p refills). Not sure what was wrong with the original pricing but Merlin seemed convinced that this is "cheaper" for the pass holder. Plenty of complaints seem to be occurring on ...
