Re: Nemesis red powder added to give the blood effect to waterfalls

Good, but I prefer it how it was a few years ago, bright red and not pink! :)

Re: Closed park

Sorry the park was shut for you mate. The last time I visited the park was Thursday 5th, so that was GREAT for The Sun to choose me that date :)

Re: Ice Age - The 4-D Experience Discussion

I actually thought this was great, also along with Sub-Terra. Had to queue about 17 minutes for Ice Age, I rate it 9/10, love the snow effects, and surprised we got to keep the 3-D Glasses, which I thought they'd want back!

All in all, great attraction :)

The way of posts has changed

What's going on with the way they are layed out now, with the latest comments being on the first page at the top? It confuses me. The old one was good, where the last comment was last on the last page...if you know what I mean! :(

Re: Nemesis - scared? :S

Back in 2007 on my first visit to the park I'd never been on a coaster at all. I rode RMT and found it a bit more forceful than I'd expected, then made my way to Air to ride that before Nemesis. Unfortunately the damn thing was out of action as it can often be, so two of the three friends I was wit...

Re: Marketing burnt on to your retinas

Totally agree, all this advertising and up-selling is the main reason why I'm so critical of both Merlin and AT management. Last year's fanta-gate incident is proof of how they value money over magic nowadays. A small bit of advertising here and there isn't to bad, and I can live with that, but hav...

Thanks mate, will phone up Alton Towers soon to double check, what times would they be open to ring, doubt there's anyone there this week, although they could be testing?

This is how I see events unfolding going by what little we know and the concept art in the sun today: We are taken down a fake lift while being told we're privileged enough to see a mysterious egg recently unearthed on the site. We're strapped in to the seats for ours and the eggs protection. Sudde...

I was on The Flume when it broke down, on the main lift hill for the biggest drop, there for ages!
