Re: Planning Application for Enhancements to Air

Maybe they could turn it into a launched flying rollercoaster to give a plane take off style feel, and therefore shorten ride time and speed up throughput? Uphill launch like space mountain dlp would be awesome

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Will the Smiler have a front row queue option with only 4 cars per train?  I always go for front row where available and would be slightly disappointed queuing for a long time only to get stuck in a row where you cant see anything but shoes or heads or seats.

Re: annual pass queing problems

Exactly you do have to wait longer to get in than the normal queue and they cant even use early ride time. They should go back to letting passholders and hotel guests in at 9am and then letting standard ticket holders in after this if they want to get them in the park. There only ever seems to be on...

Has any ever had 65% off their stay at Holiday Inn using the MAP Discount Code because after emailing them asking for some prices for 1 and 2 nights they got back to me with more expensive prices than you get when you book normally using their website.  I know to get these rates it usually mean...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Dont know if this has been mentioned before but what about the track tilts downwards at the back into a launch position for the first lift but this is disguised by lights, smoke, darkness etc so you dont realise you are being tilted ready for launch up hill abit like space mountain in paris

Package Holidays Idea at Alton Towers

Had an idea about how the hotels could be made slighty better value for money and not just constantly aimed at families and kids going for free... How about when you book you have more options than just bed and breakfast and it makes it slightly cheaper for the customer in the long term and the comp...

Re: Casino at Alton towers hotel !

They definately need an over 18 machine area as something for adults instead of being solely based on families.  They did used to have two £70 machines in the bar at splash landings and they need to get them back and yes maybe even some £500 machines or likewise that you do see in casinos. ...

The Swarm: Front Row Queue

Is the way the front row queue works a bad idea?  Even though you queue up for front row passes you still have to queue when entering the station and they still fill up the front row even if people dont have those silly little passes. Its even more annoying when the queue is quite and they dont...

Re: Thorpe park 23/07/12

yea it is probably luck.  went at end of june and queues were at 90mins at times but that may have been due to school trips so could possibly be shorter even tho it is school hols but just cant guarentee how much the olympics will affect it.
