Re: News: Reduced Attraction Operating Hours

So they've reduced the hours of the Rita Shop, yet kept the photo kiosk open. So technically they have closed one till and got rid of one staff member - Well im sure that will make a huge difference  :roll:

Re: Th13teen trimmed yet again?

When iv'e been on TH13TEEN over the last few weeks I thought it seemed quicker too, now even if you sit in the middle of the train you still lift out of your seat! However yes it needs painting as you can see it in the on-ride photos.

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (**contains spoilers**)

In the Scare Maze...Do the actors touch you or anything? I have a massive phobia of scare mazes...Hate things jumping out at me and things touching me even more. Especially when it's a walkthrough attraction. I was terrified of Sub-Terra in the original version haha, but managed to work up the cour...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (**contains spoilers**)

I have just heard from one of my mates who is at the park today and he has just been on sub terra, he looked at the information board thing before going on and he said that he swore he saw a section on there about it being recommended for 12 and over. Has anyone seen that or has anyone got a pictur...

I noticed this while riding yesterday, it really does let a lot of light into the chamber, why has this suddenly happened?

Re: Ice Age - The 4-D Experience Discussion

ATTRACTION IMPROVEMENTS As some of you may know Ice Age: The 4D Experience, uses wooden '4D' benches to enhance the guests experience, using vibrations, bumps and leg tickers. For a combination of reasons including, Alton's weather (i.e. rain), the water and snow effects, and children jumping and k...

A bit random, but if anybody's interested here's the script for both pre-show. descent lift and main show. Welcome to the Phalanx research facility. You are about to enter an underground system, first exposed by a Phalanx research team back in 1994. Something terrible was unearthed. The Nemesis cre...

Re: People smoking marijuana outside the park entrance...

Iv'e noticed this too while staying at the Resort Hotels this weekend! I don't know what drugs are what but you know what they smell like. There was a strong smell of whatever it was in the Alton Towers Hotel (3rd Floor) last night and it was a many different places around the park. Surely something...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (**contains spoilers**)

How scary is this new scare maze on the end? I'm a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to scare mazes :nervious:. I've been on Duel: Live without a problem but this seems to be a lot scarier... Personally, I think it's VERY scary... Everytime I go on it. I come off weak at the knees. I personally ha...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (**contains spoilers**)

Any I believe. I'm pretty sure the sequencing is done at random by the ride computers from what I've heard :) Does anyone know how long the maximum time between the first and last drops is? I know that's a bit of a geeky question, but I've ridden it twice (v1 and v1.5) and never bothered to check.&...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (**contains spoilers**)

Just to put some people correct in this topic, the actors are not wearing boiler suits, they are wearing the standard Phalanx Uniform, just with an added gas mask. When I went on sub-terra yesterday there was definitely one actor wearing a white boiler suite with a full gas mask, as he entered the ...

Re: Alton Towers 2012 in Review

The new HB Attraction looks somewhat...... funny! Will be interesting to see if many people will actually use this! I don't think that the new HB attraction will be at Alton for the long term as the signs used etc. are only laminated paper, therefore I only think it will be standing in during the s...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (**contains spoilers**)

Now the addition of a scare maze ending I originally criticised but only because I feared how long this would last for. However from the sound of it I think that even without the actors (excluding those on the lifts) this end section will still add a decent conclusion. The trouble with the lifts be...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (**contains spoilers**)

What is the use of the mesh fencing within the container then? Is it to create some form of 'maze' or is it simply there to separate the actors from the guests in order to stop them from being able to touch you? Also... I'm a tall guy, and shipping containers are cramped at the best of times, so, a...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (**contains spoilers**)

This sounds good to me. I don't know how much has changed from the original ride but the aspects I felt needed altering have had some tweaks. The entrance lift still seems like it needs more realism but this'll probably always be a concern of mine unless they genuinely get it right. The monster raw...

When I first heard about the new ending being described as a shipping container, with flashing lights, air pistons and black curtains - I thought it would be crap tbh - But after experiencing the attraction yesterday, I couldn't have been more wrong! From the moment the contamination squad enter the...

I experience Sub-Terra twice today and I can now safely say the experience finally feels complete. I'll give my experience in bullet points so you don't have to read through an essay: Queue Line - A quick negative, most screens were blurry today and most of the audio was either not working or so qui...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (ATTRACTION CLOSED 20-25 MAY)

This sounds way better than what i'd heard, so I will go in with an open mind tomorrow! There is also smoke effects in the elevators too now!  :D
