Take a look at enterprise,  not a coaster, but it explains all.

Re: Worst queue experiences

They have some weekends in the summer where they allow scouts to camp on the front lawns. Really O_o Yep, I've noticed it for the past 2 years and its mainly Girl Scouts. It's also the only time you will find queues outside ERT rides waiting for them to open :lol: Lol  :lol: My friend, who is ...

Re: Stuff you lost in the Oblivion Hole

Can't we re-name this topic to things lost on rides? :) I nearly lost my glasses on Rita, Nemesis and air! Rita was the 1st time, I forgot to take my glasses off before we started, and after the launch I could feel them moving! So scared! xD Next on Nemesis, I yet again forgot, and a stupid brain wa...

Re: Blade to Mutiny Bay, but what to replace it?

If they did it right, it would be amazing, like you said, suspended over the water, jets, theming  etc, but if done wrong, it would look really bad. There's nothing wrong with it in FV in my opinion (Except from the queue-line, that's more or less impossible to find!) It strangely fits in nicely.

Re: Unfair Pricing for Disabled People

My brother has Adhd, and when ever we come, my Dad (carer) gets a free entry, and my self, Mum and my brother pay full price. This is fair, however I think if it was a person who was unable to go on any rides, there should be no/ a minimal charge. Also when in the park, my brother gets a writband, m...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

My opinion about SW7's Model and Manufacturer The park explicitly says it will be based on SAW: The Ride at Thorpe Park and will be the same type (Euro-Fighter) and manufacturer (Gerstlauer).  Its also completely reasonable as the layout resembles the recently opened Takabisha. So its safe to ...

Re: Quick Questions 2012

Wondering the same as above, going on thursday, and hopefully getting my friends to buy fast track with me, i'm pretty sure they will. We get there for ERT at 9, so we'll probably have an hour or so with not so bad queues, probably going and doing the dark forest then, and then after 10, should we b...

Re: What was your best trip to Alton Towers?

Last year, my first 'real' trip going on all the rides, and seeing the black eyed peas at the end!
We had an amazing day, just me & my dad, me missing school ( with permission of corse!), fast tracks, going on everything, and an amazing concert at the end!

Have Sonic Spinball, Sharkbait Reef, Oblivion and Nemesis open during ERT only.


I agree with all of you ideas, but this, really?
Three of the busiest rides, and then another good family attraction open for an hour a day, and not even  to all of the public?

Re: What Cuts Would You Make?

I really don't know what I'd do... I'd  probably do something with Submission/Enterprise and Ripsaw/the blade, maybe have one open for 2 hours, then shut it and have the other open for 2 hours. This is just an idea, and probably sounds really rubbish, but maybe give the guests a card depending ...

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

When your whole class tricks you, saying that I didn't get on the school trip to AT in a few weeks :3

And when a few groups in your class come to advice on which rides to go on first. I gave them all good advice, the group who bullied me last year are going on Air.  :twisted:
