Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hi Everybody, Just wanted to inquire if Alton Towers has released any information regarding how the scarefest mazes are going to function throughout the COVID epidemic? I would assume that social distancing will be implemented (no shoulder holding) but would this affect the number of maze tickets th...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

To be honest, wouldn't the placement of such a dark/horror related attraction near a kid friendly zone (Cloud Cuckoo Land) seem inappropriate and redundant to the target audience? There are so many eye popping colours sounding the area and this would just look... out of place. I could imagine the di...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

But I did notice staff were trying to play down the scariness of the attraction. I really don't understand why the staff members are trying to do this when the attraction itself was designed to be played out as a full on horror experience. I had an awful experience in regards to the evacuation and ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I have been a bit nervous the last few days as I am going to Alton Towers on Thursdays.

I am not nervous of the ride itself but on the fact that if I am going to fit on the ride as I admit I am a bit overweight.

Should I be nervous or am I worrying about nothing?

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Wow, they are now claiming that the roller coaster got stuck upside down.

This proves how they are not researching that well due to the fact that they later showed the ride stuck on the chain-lift XD

Re: Alton Towers Memorabilia - Old Maps, Collectibles etc.

I do not know how much it is worth or when it was made, however, I have recently got my hands on a glass themed for The Corkscrew. Here is an example of the glass that I found on the internet http://thumbs.worthpoint.com/SlKuOaR3KVu6jcRIuaDiDpq_y2c=/400x0/images/images2/360/0514/20/360_53b1e4179522e...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I was at Alton Towers yesterday and I noticed something very strange.
The marmaliser's screen had one Pixel that was glowing red. The whole of the screen other than that one pixel was completely shut down.
This must mean that they are still sending electricaty through the marmaliser
