Crooked Spoon

Hi! Just wondering if anyone knows whether Crooked Spoon is open for lunch? We know they do breakfast and dinner but we read somewhere that someone had lunch there but we can't seem to find out from anyone. There's isn't an option to book on the website but we wondered if either lunch wasn't availab...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Overall opinion: Impressed! Can't wait to try it out tomorrow! Probably going I be queuing for half of the time the park is open but looks like it will be worth it!

Merlin in Orlando

I heard Merlin were planning to open a Sea-Life centre and a Madame Tussaud's in Orlando. In my personal opinion I think they should stay well clear of this magnificent part of the world. They wouldn't be able to keep up. Sea-Life centre is never going to compete with Seaworld. Fair enough There isn...

Re: Alton Towers 2013 Map

I do have to say though, the map looks great and whoever has designed it has done a great job! Get. Out. Seriously though, the map is a disgrace! Yes AT make it look fancy but it isn't a good map! I mean TPs is better!!! Yes if you read the rest of my post you would read that I agree the map is use...

Re: Scariest moments at Alton Towers

Whilst on Air my vest came loose (not the plastic one) which was an awful panic for half of the ride!! But then to make matters worse when it eventually locked in my hair was caught in it! I haven't really been back on Air since.

Re: Hex's popularity?

Hex is a great ride! It's not well advertised, there is no merchandise, understated banners hanging at entrance. A lot of people think the Towers is off limits so I don't think they think there is anything worth seeing in there. Yet the theming, thought and ride concept is just amazing. It's a true ...

Re: Alton Towers 2013 Map

I have to say I agree with the previous comments about the maps usefulness. Personally, I get a good handful of maps as I use them for 'The Alton Towers Scrapbook'. But if it came to using them to get around the park I would probably end up lost in the gardens until they found me.

Re: Alton Towers Live: Saturday 6th July 2013

I have been looking forward to this weekend all year because it is my
Birthday. However when they announced it was going to be Alton Towers Live I was a little weary of attending due to the queues, kids, etc...but when I saw the line up I have decided to avoid that weekend like the plague.

Re: Things people say about AT that you really hate!

I dont mind Oblivion being referred to as Blivvy as it is not cute in any way, however Nemmy is just not for me, each to their own, call it Nemmy if you want I'm only saying I personally in my own opinion do not like it.

Re: Things people say about AT that you really hate!

It just seems a tad babyish to me. It makes it sound like a little puppy (which it isnt). I am a total enthusiast I dont need to define Nemesis' gender to relate to it at all. I dont need a little pet name for it because it already has a name. Alton Towers did not spend ages picking a name for peopl...

Completely grinds my gears when people call Nemesis 'Nemmy' like a sick pet name. Makes me want to vomit everywhere, especially on the people who call it 'Nemmy'............l
