Re: What did you ride on your first visit?

My first visit was last year in July, sadly it was a school trip and it was extremely busy, and only had about 4 hours on park, so only did the rapids, RMT and the blade :P

Re: Off to AT tomorrow..

I went today, and it was quite a bit busier than I expected, but could be worse I suppose. Air was 90 minutes for quite a while at the peak of the day, but was 25 when I went on; Oblivion, TH13TEEN and Rita were ranging from 20 - 60 mins; Nemesis was around 45 - 55 at the peak of the day, but also 2...

Re: Might be going with school...

I went with school last year, the day before most schools broke up, and it was extremely busy! 70 - 120 mins for air, a bit shorter for the other coasters, and 40 minutes for RMT and the rapids! I'd advise buying a fastrack if you go the day before schools break up, another day might be slightly qui...

When, after finally persuading them to take you to AT, you send a text to your brother and parents every day saying the number of days it is until we go :lol: 14 days! :D

Re: You Know You're Addicted to Alton Towers (And TTF) When

You're having your hair cut and one of the hairdressers asks your mum if you're doing anything in half term and an Alton Towers advert comes on the radio and you think it's a 'sign' that you might be going;) I highly doubt I will be though. And when you smile to yourself when you're doing work at sc...
