Merlin Magic Making, is that marketing speech for cost cutting?

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

I'm sure the point has already been made but I think it could be something to do with reverting back. Wooden Mug Analogue Clock 'Air Entrance' Runes I'm just wondering if they could go along the conversion theme... Alton was building a new ride, dark forces (The Wickerman) took it over and converte...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

So i've been on the park for the last 3 days and writing from splash landings and i have to say the smiler is a epic ride, yes the transition on the 3rd to last invert is a little rough but once you know about it and brace its no worse then any point on nemesis. And I would say fastracks are a mista...

I don't think obliv was ever black.

This photo is credited as 1998 and it looks grey here.

When was that photo taken and who are those people who took that photo. Besides are they even aloud to show that photo without blurring out the secret element? It was taken today by Tatenhill Aviation... and yes, they are. Ohhh does this mean more MI7 pictures tonight then? I seem to remember Taten...

Re: Thorpe Park 2013: Possible Ride Discussion

I got to be honest with you even though its a desperate move its made me think about going back to Thorpe park this year.... Since I so far away from Thorpe and Alton I only get to visit a decent theme park once or twice a year. And have always thought that Alton gave a more complete package. But ad...

Re: Alton Towers Hotel & Splash Landings

I really wish Splash would get a refurb I stayed there last year and the room was disgusting.

I now stay in the travel lodge because there rooms much tidier! which is a shame because the atmosphere in splash was amazing :(

Re: Could Towers manage this tour?

Perhaps Alton should take a leaf out of the Eden Project's book... They run Eden sessions every year over 6-10 dates with bands at the level of snow patrol and blink 182. the area where the bands play is much smaller then the lawns at alton. But they have the attraction as normal during the day but ...

Re: Th13teen...but Backwards?

I think the better way to improve th13teen's re-ride ability would be to different drop sequences. Or having the wraith's control "tree branches" that connect to the train which "pulls" it in to the station. Or leg tickles in the train as if its the branches putting the train down.

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

I very much doubt that the revolving track will be the viewing area as it wouldn't be the prettiest thing in the world depending on how its been designed. I imagine it would more likely be a fly past track... I mean imagine thirteen drop zone with a view area.. By the way does anyone think that the ...

Guest Services

I was just wondering how long I should wait for a reply from guest services. I've been waiting for around 5 days for a reply regarding the state of the room when I stayed at splash landing. I really want is an apology even if its scripted.


Thanks T
