Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Hello all I was at the park on Sunday and saw 3 new metal beams that have now been put in near the top end by the loo,s also a new brick base also (looks like breeze block) that is around 4 feet high. Also there is a big poster halfway down towers street too that now says "SW7 Opening March 20...

Re: Funny things that have fallen out of peoples pockets..

A quid flew out of my friend's pocket on Spinball, causing me to be in stitches the whole way round as he tried to retrieve it. Amazingly, It stayed in the car until the end of the ride!  :lol:

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

It will be a less technical first than Th13589248whateverteen, it is only 5 mill more and there is a layout, big station and big theming, so any tilt tracks are out of the question, guys. But a lot of the budget for Th13teen went into research and development, trust me that drop section is no minor...

Re: What is your favourite ride in the park? and why?

It's a close call between Nemesis and Oblivion, but I think Oblivion just scrapes it for me. I get scared every single time I ride it (42 times now, but who's counting?). The whole ride experience is delivered perfectly, as soon as you enter X-Sector you can sense a certain kind of atmosphere that s...

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

Im not going to give my views on the whole issue (as thats not a topic for here). But at the end of the day its an illegal activity and being done in a park where smoking is meant to only happen in certain areas. Ive been in a few queue lines at Alton when people have been smoking cannabis, which i...

People smoking marijuana outside the park entrance...

After a very good day at the towers with my family today, we exited the park to find almost the whole of the front plaza of the park stinking of marijuana, and we believe the smell was originating from some people sat about 40 feet away from the main entrance. It was horrible! Surely people would ha...

Can I just ask why Alton Towers is at high risk of being bombed? Is it because it's always got loads of people there???

Re: Do you fall quicker on Oblivion than you would falling yourself?

At the bottom of the drop the shuttles travel at 30.4 m/s. According to this website: (http://keisan.casio.com/has10/SpecExec.cgi), a person weighing 75kg would reach a maximum speed of 30.8 m/s while falling 180 feet . So, a person would fall faster. This is probably due to the fact Oblivion shuttl...

Re: Graffiti

A lot of credit to Alton Towers for getting rid of graffiti as soon as it appears, I was walking down the queue line for Th13teen back in 2010, and it was pretty much the last ride of the day, there was a staff member with a sort of handheld motorized sander sanding pen off the wooden posts where so...

Re: 2012: Nemesis Sub-Terra... Part 2

I think the egg in London was an extremely clever marketing idea. For one, it is an event that will be covered heavily by the media so that would get it coverage. The bio-hazard suits will spark an interest in any passers by, I mean how often do you see a team of people in a bio-hazard suit, especia...

Yep, they have changed the logo slightly and placed it on T-shirts and badges and other things, (I bought a pin badge) and it was on sale in the Air shop  :D

Re: What funny things did you do at Alton Towers

My friend purposely left his restraint open on Nemesis and when the (female) ride op came, as she pushed it down and clicked in the seatbelt, he made an "inapropriate" noise :D we were laughing all the way up the hill lmao
