Re: Roper update

In my opinion the Ropers will never win this, just because there two people going against a massive company. And also if it was really a big problem I would of thought they would of tried to stop the planning application for sw7 from being confirmed, I mean if x-sector really was a big problem for p...

Re: Ticket Offers (Including "The Sun" Promotion) Discussion

Got my sunday times free tickets today through the post after I though I wouldn't get any because I forgot to write my 5 bands on the front of the envelope. Got them for the 12th of May which was my 3rd band choice. Don't no if I can use them yet, but hope I can. But it doesn't matter if I can't bec...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

On my visit, we went up to the entrance 3 times and each time they told everyone in the queue to exit because the ride had broke down, which I thought was weird for a new ride to break down so much?  :?

Sent them off today, but quite annoyed since I forgot to put my date bands on the back of the envelope, so in other words it will be done last and I won't get any tickets I wanted -.-!

Re: Ticket Offers (Including "The Sun" Promotion) Discussion

True, because £4.20 is a really really great reduction compared to the normal price of £42 to enter. I just hope I get a good date that I can use like I did for the sun offer :D!

Re: Ice Age - The 4-D Experience Discussion

I really enjoyed this ride from the queue line to leaving the shop at the end. I thought they've used the effects and the themeing was great. The Leg ticklers in the show were great and caught me and the rest of the audience out when they were activated and kinda freaked us out but it was great fun....

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

I'm Overall surprised by how much I enjoyed my Sub-Terra experience after all the bad reviews I've heard. The actors in the queue really added to the experience and especially when I was picked on after I tried to ignore him, but I thought it was great and laughed it off, and then laughed at my frie...

Re: My Alton Towers Map

These are fantastic :D! I love the whole idea and they way it's set out. I most like the idea of Cadbury's Street, retheming Rita to Reaper and having the area past air for Hotel Guests, Merlin should take on some of these ideas cause there just amazing!

Well Done!

Re: Marketing burnt on to your retinas

I hate the way Alton and Merlin go about with the advertising and marketing of the park and is my biggest anger with the business. I mean it's like with the sneeky not showing the VAT on a price in big letters, and then the real price with VAT in a tiny little font that you cant even see, I mean the...
