Re: Fireworks

I'm done now with Alton Towers fireworks, and maybe Alton Towers in general. They use to be my favourite displays. Just look back to the 2014 fireworks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piAtKbAM0Ww" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Amazing display, using mist over the lake as a projector...

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

Not a fan of Galactica at all. I want Air back. I went on again later in the day and refused the headsets, which you could claim was 'Air' but it was not because queuing times were so much longer while they mess around with the headsets, have to argue with staff that i don't want my picture taken at...

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

Went today to try it out as I loved air . Not impressed at all. First ride of the day and it made me feel sick , and the sick feeling lasted all day . I want air back . Went on it later in the day again but refused the VR , good job it's optional . Biggest annoyance now is if you want to ride it as ...

Re: Fireworks 2015

Having been to the 2012,2013 and 2014 fireworks I felt really let down by the fireworks display this year. Very few of the larger fireworks compared to previous years, no special fireworks, no walls of fire. Feels like they tried to just cut costs by padding it out with lasers and using more medium ...

Re: What slide would you like to see in the Waterpark!?

I would like to see the Water Park actually fully open on all days. Unless you go on a Friday,Saturday or Sunday half the park is closed (the outside part) , and even when it is open its not for the same amount of time as the indoor part so you end up waiting a few hours to get outside :( . No point...

Re: The future of Duel

Not sure if Duel is the ride to do it with, but i would like a ride that takes a random route each time, so if you ride it again you will more than likely get a different ride. So the Haunted House but more scary with the not knowing which effects you would get, many different paths for the train to...

LOL you can't even compare Nemesis and Air. Air is gentle, graceful and generally does what it says on the tin.

But Nemesis on the other hand... different thing all together.

Re: Is the Nemesis sign true?

As awesome as Nemesis is, is just an over exaggeration to make the ride seam more terrifying and it goes work a lot of the time. Thats exactly what has put me off ever riding it, i love air though (people screaming so much originally put me off that, o and the height of the lift hill, heights make ...

Is the Nemesis sign true?

Just before you enter the queue for Nemesis there is a sign that says

Nemesis
Be Warned
This Is The Worlds Most Intense Ride Experience
Be Absolutly sure you want to Ride Before joining the Queue.


Was it back in 94 when built the worlds most intense ride? or is it just designed to scare you?

Re: Alton Towers Without the Skyride

Re: Burger King set to leave. Original Burger Co as replacement?

I hope what ever they get changed with they will do the 20% off for MAP holders, as Burger King do not do this and they are very expensive, so i am glad to see them go.
