Re: Quick Questions 2012

Is there a website where I can find out about the footfall numbers at AT ?

Were going on Tue 10th July and i'd like to look at some records to have a rough idea about how busy it might be in comparison to the last few Tuesdays ..

Thanks

Re: Quick Questions 2012

Thanks ! I was thinking of lockers in the actual queues though? I seem to recall (going back a fair few years however) that there was a guy in a hut during the queue for nemesis who gave me a token in exchange for my bag, which I redeemed after I got off the ride? (my memory is rubbish though, sp it...

Re: Quick Questions 2012

Which rides have proper lockers where I can store my things whilst on the rides ? (don't fancy leaving my expensive camera in the cages at the side of the ride launch pads

Thanks !

Which ride do you rush to get on first when you get to AT & Why?

I'm planning a family trip next month & usually head to Oblivion first as its a great wake up call & gets us ready for the rides, however this year were heading straight to Nemesis S:T to hopefully avoid the queues & so we can go on Nemesis straight afterwards to follow on the story.. S...

Re: The Future of The Flume

Whilst I do enjoy The Flume (and i always have done since being a kid) it is really showing its age an will only be appealable to youngsters and people (like me) who feel that its a "must do" ride whilst in the park, however like many have mentioned, something really does need to be done!...

Re: Ride Downtime Thread 2012

Considering Alton Towers' generally excellent record for ride availability, I'm surprised see the need to start this topic. However, I visited yesterday and Oblivion was closed for the duration. Anybody have any idea what's up with it and when it's likely to reopen? There didn't seem to be too much...
