Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I've heard staff members tell people off for filming too, and have seen one ride operator on the twirling toadstool actually stop the ride mid way through because a guy refused to put his phone away.

I'm so happy they're starting to do pin badges in places other than AT. It makes my lanyard happy, lol.

Re: Alton Towers - Music and Videos

Did a quick search and couldn't find anything but does anyone know whether the fireworks 2015 music was/will be released? I loved the remix at the end, it was awesome!

Rough? It jolts you around a little yes but that's to be expected with that type of ride. Definitely not rough though.


It's rough for me but ymmv :)

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

I guess I'll wait until it's quiet until I go on it then. Maybe they'll give me a bit more time to fiddle with things. It may not go well with my Autism though. Hm. I will go on it though, even if it is only once with the head set.

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

I'm still quite looking forward to it. I'm worried about not being able to wear my glasses though as I can't see a thing without them!

Re: Ride Closures/Removals in 2016

Having been today all the signage has been removed from CatCF, Hex, Sub-Terra and the Flume has lots of hoardings up. Ripsaw's space just looks weird without it there. So many eateries shut :( I hope it gets better soon.

X52 bus from Nottingham

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew the times/prices of the X52 bus from Nottingham? I've googled but to no avail, at least not for this year and I'm unsure if it's changed.

Thanks!

Vin.
