Re: Alton Towers Toilets

What I find disturbing about the toilets is that the female ones (not sure about the dudes) beside the Dark Forest have windows in the roof, and in the right conditions you can actually use them like mirrors and see people in the other cubicles.  For this reason I would rather have an accident ...

Re: Embarrasing Moments on Rides...

Not really on a ride, but on my way to Oblivion I completely decked myself on a wet drain. I just lay on the ground for a few seconds and prayed nobody had seen...but they had. And I earned a small cheer :)

Re: Size/Weight restrictions

Hi Jen :) I'm quite large with a thigh measurement of 25ins and a chest of 47ins, I've never been refused from Air although last year they had a bit of a struggle closing the harness to the point that I didnt enjoy the ride because I thought I was going to fall out (impossible I know) It wasn't unco...

Hen Parties

Does anybody know if the park/hotels does hen parties? I remember seeing something on their official site a while back but I cant seem to find it now :( I've tried to phone Alton but I was in a queue for what seemed like an eternity and I gave up. Any advice would be great thanks x

Re: Say something positive about Charlie

We go on it to get a seat/out of the rain.

I dont think its that bad - its a bit of fun and at the end of the day its aimed at kids...but if something terrible were to happen to it and it was closed for some reason I dont think I would bother.

Never happened to me but I had wondered about this before (after reading about the spinball squirrel) Do they have any animal repelling measures in place?

Re: Alton Towers Signposts

Hi Master Lord, I am a sign maker :) its honestly the best job in the world, but one of the hardest to explain as there are so many different techniques and materials to use! For a standard sign, I would visit the location, measure up and photograph the surrouonding areas then using the computer sca...

Re: Music that makes you think of Alton Towers

I'm The Bomb by Electric 6 - it kinda reminds me of the monorail queue music, and we listened to that album all the way down the M6 last time we went :D

Ring Of Fire by Johnny Cash - from the Rita queueline

ITHOTMK - Obviously!

Re: AT Related Dreams

In my dreams I'm there almost every week *sigh* I did have one the other night where Oblivion had different grades of drop depending on the riders, and I got stuck on it with a bunch of kids and just as it was leaving the station I saw the track get shorter and by the time I'd reached the drop it wa...

Re: Map for The Gardens

What a good idea! That had honestly never crossed my mind. I only ever use the gardens as a shortcut from Rita to Nemesis, due to a bad experience the first time I visited the park-a very large detour and wandering the gardens for what seemed to take an eternity! That would encourage people to explo...

Re: The Mission

5th weigh in and I have lost a single pound this week :( not too happy about it, but its still better than gaining or staying the same... Having said that I though I would have lost more as I completely beat myself up with exercise this week, maybe it will catch up with me ;)

Firstly, welcome Ricki! I found this topic very interesting as I am currently doing the same kind of thing - for pretty much the same reason.

Celebrities at AT

Which celebrities have you seen at Alton Towers? Have you sat near them on a ride (maybe even managed to get them in your ride photo?)

I saw Tony from Hollyoaks (if you can count him as a celeb) eating at the X-Sector KFC - poor guy was getting hounded by young girls :P
