Re: Family room for 4 adults? More like 2 adults and 2 hobbits.

I went in May and i was there i was with my brother, his GF and my other brother. Me and one of my brothers had the bunk beds. I am 5'8" and it was fine for me but my brother is around 6'1" and he hated it. I would try the front desk because we put on our request that we didn't want bunk b...

Re: What is your favourite ride in the park? and why?

Although i do agree that oblivion is so scary it's great, I have to say that nemesis is and always will be my fave ride just because it has everything from the speed, the tense moment just before you get pulled round the first corner at the top of the hill, the twist the turns and just the general t...

Re: Alton Towers Hotel

I wouldn't stay in some two star in Salou if you paid me. Sent from my HTC Desire HD A9191 using Tapatalk I agree.  I stayed in Salou a good few years ago and we stayed in a four star (apparently) and it was vile. Our room was broken into, there were mushrooms growing out the ceiling and the p...

Re: Alton Towers Hotel

I was AT a couple of weeks ago so fair enough it was a weekday and it was during offpeak times but for four of us sharing a room for 1 night with breakfast at splash landings it was £80 (we already had our free tickets from the sun)  We each thought this was great value at £20 each. Another thi...

Re: Am I too big for the rides?

I'm sorry i don't know what my thigh size is and as i'm at work i think my colleagues may think i'm a bit weird if i whip out a measuring tape for the.  There should be a size converter on google though that gives the european sizes for each british size. I know what you mean about different sh...

Re: Am I too big for the rides?

Hiya I feel your pain. I am a size 18 and was so worried but went to AT last week and got on everything without a single problem. I mean NOTHING was a struggle (even ripsaw and submission) As we are the same size (roughly) I don't see why you would have any problem.  I didn't even need any help...

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

I was at the park yestrday and we went went on this ride only once as i don't think it's something that can be done again and again.  Pro's:  I thought the ride was ok, the television screens in the queue were a good time killer, the actors are good and work well with the theme.  The ...

Re: Size restrictions on Air

Glad everything was ok for you Hollie I must admit it has been a while since i was at Alton Towers and I was worried about not fitting into the seats on Air (I am a size 18 also and tend to carry most of it on my thighs) but you have really put my mind at rest. Glad you had a fab time and thanks for...

Re: Quick Questions 2012

As far as i'm aware, Tesco are still doing this offer and it is on a wide range of products. I got mine from their own brand kitchen roll, although i ended up getting a set of tickets on ebay for the date i required for £20 so might be cheaper for you to try ebay first as it worked out cheaper for m...

Re: Is the park ever quiet these days?

I know these posts probably really annoy people so apologies but i haven't been to AT since sonic spinball was the "new ride" so it's been a VERY long time and i'm going on Wednesday 9th May and was wondering if wednesdays are still quiet (ish) - I used to live nearer and my ex partner and...

Re: Dine all day

I'm going to AT on 9th May so the park is only open til 5pm or 5:30pm (i think) We are travelling from scotland and have booked into splash landings hotel and what with cost of petrol, hotel, tickets etc we are really trying to save money so this idea sounds great for us.  However it would only...

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

Yeah hopefully.  I kinda guessed April was a no-go although i think i might just get a 2for1 thingy and go anyway seeing as i'm off work and desperate to go. I just hope i get them through the post soon.  I don't mind what dates I get as i can book time off work, i just want them to get he...

I will probably do this one as well since i STILL haven't received my tickets from The Sun :( Did you choose date bands that were late? Or did you forget to put your date bands on the front of the envelope? My first choice was April and my other choices were may, june, july, sept etc. Basically i w...

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

I posted a similar question the other day but i'm not sure there is a way of contacting them as no-one responded to it. It just said in the paper that if there was any problems not to contact Alton Towers directly as they wouldn't be able to help. Hope mine are there when i get home from work today....

I put my date choice on the front of the envelope as per the instructions and also sent mine away on the day that the last token was printed and still haven't recived mine so you're not the only one.

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

Hiya Thanks for your replies folks. I think i picked date group B as my first choice as i'm off work for a week at the end of April so fingers crossed I get a good date! I guess i was just worried that i'd maybe sent them too late, although they would have arrived by the final date so i should be ok...
