Re: Project Nem 20.

I agree with the above comments - this looks amazing and by far a lot better than I could do. However, just to point out that in the last image you posted the Air lift hill does not go anywhere near Nemesis. When in actual fact the lift hill climbs over the final turn into the break run on Nemmy. Is...

Re: Los Angeles- No Car... Is it Possible?

We are off to LA in September and have not hired a car. Long Beach is about as far south as you can go in LA and from all accounts, not the nicest of areas to walk around. Universal is north of Hollywood hills and Long Beach to there is some distance right through the middle of the city. We are stay...

Re: SW8

What do you mean by "traditional coaster style"? Everything advances and changes with the times. Corkscrew went upside down - this was a new concept and nowadays we look at as being a prerequisite for the norm. Oblivion was the first to go "vertical" now we have Gerst coasters go...

Re: McBusted!

Charlie is doing very well out of this. James and Matt paid an undisclosed 6 figure amount to basically buy him out, so by doing nothing he has paid of his mortgage, if he ever had one in the first place. Have you listened to Charlie's music? It can only be described as heavy :lol: Fightstar and Ch...

Re: Your favourite Christmas song

It's all about "Run DMC - Christmas in Hollis"

If you have never heard of the title, I bet you know the song!

Also, "Dean Martin - Let it Snow".

Coincidently, both songs feature in the best Christmas movie of all time, with no argument, DIE HARD!

Re: McBusted!

I think everyone who likes Busted/McFly should check out a band from back in 2000 called The Dum Dums. Their most famous song was "Can't Get You Out of My Thoughts" and I defy anyone to tell me it sounds any different to the much later Busted and McFly. Unfortunately, the Dum Dums hit the ...

Re: McBusted!

Can't think of anything worse. 2 manufactured "bands" put together on the same stage for the sheer purpose of fleecing people of £££. How much are tickets for this? £40 plus booking fees? Daylight robbery.  Now if Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin put together a super group, that would trul...

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

But you are on private property and technically breaking a park rule then? Technically breaking a rule in which you have no say if you accept it or not, does not feature as rule of entry on the back of your ticket and a rule which breaks UK law...... ......it is a stupid rule that has not been thou...

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

Do I smoke when I go to Alton Towers?  Yes Do I use the designated smoking areas?  Sometimes Do I smoke in the queue lines?  Never When I am on park, if I feel like a cigarette, and I am close to a designated smoking area, I will use it. If I am not near one, I will always choose a p...

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

Regardless of the above, it is still a park rule and anyone saying that you will ignore it is a poor attitude, especially from fans. No its not poor attitude at all. It is POOR from AT to single out people doing something perfectly legal and discriminating against my freedom of choice and my freedo...

Yes you are right, and as I said in my post, there are not enough DSA in the park and they are not clearly labelled on the map so I will agree fully with that :) I hope that AT add...

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

OK, after 2 days on park I noticed the following: People do not have enough warning about designated smoking areas. Staff don't really do anything about it (as cool as most of the staff are :)) Half of the people smoking weren't smoking the usual... I now think that Towers as a whole need to crack ...

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

I think you'll find there's a stark difference between committing murder on private land and smoking. Alton Towers can remove you from the park from smoking. It is included in their T&C's of admission entry, that you agree to abide by at all times. You may not sign anything, but there is an agr...

Re: People Smoking Outside Of Designated Areas

A reasonable explanation? its not illegal - AT can put advisory in, but they cannot make laws. Whilst they cannot make laws, the land Alton Towers runs on is private land and as such they are legally within their rights to create policies that people must abide by whilst on their property. The Alto...
