Re: ScareMazing North Ticket Availability And General Discus

Didn't get tickets for the event, but me Tleadly and Benji (you might remember us from the forums a few years back!) would love to tag along without guys for the day, staying the night too so would we able to walk round and have a drink with you even though we don't have event ticket?

Cheers!

Re: 2015 Scarefest

I was there on Tuesday, and I must admit it was pretty quiet, longest queue we had was half an hour for thirteen, and that was in the dark. The best scarefest I've ever been too. TOTT was really good, better than I expected, it's the first year I'd done it but the strobe maze was brilliant and there...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I think it would be a real shame to retheme the ride, especially as it's actually quite well themed, with the marmaliser, the exit corridor, the inside queueline and also with the shop and the 'Smiler TV'. However, I think to some degree this is necessary. I don't believe they'll go for a full rethe...

Re: Alton Towers - Offers, Vouchers and Discounts

I found this in Frankies and Bennies toilets last night:

I don't know what the terms and conditions were but I'm guessing it was free entry with a full paying adult like the kellogs ones where, just thought some people might be interested :)

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

weather staggering ride openings is because of training staff, cutting costs or directing guests 'flow' around the park, it's not on. People expect to arrive at a theme park and be able to go on all the rides, not to have this ridiculous staggered opening, especially for what they charge to get in t...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Not sure I like these amended opening times. Is it true they have removed the SRQ for Nemmy and Rita?? coastin.net has put on Facebook that all signage for the srq on Nemesis has been took down and baggage holds put infront of where the queue used to be. Not sure about Rita though. If this is true,...

Re: Rides you want to see leave the park.

Nemesis Sub Terra is quite popular with the park guests and generally swallows the queues that generate. I really can't wait for The Flume to leave. I know this will be a little controversial, but I'm looking forward to the removal/overhaul of Duel. Even as a haunted house it's very dated and gimmi...

Re: High Ropes Course - Planning Permission Submitted

That concept image must be the most cringey thing I've seen in my life. I think this high ropes course will be a good thing for the park- allowing attractions other than the roller coasters themselves like the water park, golf and now this is great for guests who might want a go at other things than...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

I think the prices are quite decent- especially for new passes. Yes- renewal prices have risen and personally I think those with a pass should have the renewal prices lowered depending on how long they've had one- rewards for those loyal to the company? Because after all, they're the ones who care m...

Ghosts- real, or not real?

So I was just asked the thought provoking question - "Do you believe in ghosts?". I'm sure it's a question every one of us has been asked at some point, and an argument that will probably go on for ever. So, I just wondered what you guys thought? We've all heard of the spooky scare maze ba...

Re: Is the Dark Forest meant to look bad?

I agree, its pretty rubbish in terms of theming, but I can't help but love both th13rteen and Rita. The atmosphere is ruined from the beginning really, with the multiple pointless game stalls and food outlets. I don't actually think the scaffolding looks too bad, I think it adds to the 'escaping fro...

Re: The new BBC Worldwide partnership- what might we see?

I don't think themed attractions do restrict the amount of people wanting to go on, I think they rather make them more popular! People still ride the hulk, even though I bet more than half the people who ride aren't fans. The same goes with the pirates of the Caribbean, the Simpsons rides, and anyth...

Re: Enchanted Village - Coming in 2015

This type of accommodation isn't something you stay in for a weeks holiday, its normally a 1 or 2 night thing, and yes it will be expensive but it's a treat, and a treat is certainly what you will get by the looks of these! I think this is very smart and will bring the Alton towers 'magic' to life e...

Re: Whats with all the hate for charlie?

It still manages to attract large queues, queues that I've seen go up to 70 minutes even! And yes, that mainly is because of the shocking throughput, but at the end of the day people still queue for it and ride it visit after visit! Surely if it was that bad it wouldn't attract that sort of attention.
