Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Does anyone know what is wrong with stealth? I went on Sunday and it was shut all day.

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

I'm looking at going to Thorpe on July 6th, however I have just noticed they are running a triathlon that day. Has anyone been to the park on any of the previous events and did it add much to the queues?.

Re: What's The Smiler like?

I have to admit every time I go on the smilers vertical lift hill I'm always thinking; please don't do a code zero. To be fair its not the ride breaking down its just the train in front has not cleared the last block brake yet so the ride system prevents two trains being on the same section of track...

Re: Flambo's exotic Feast

We have just got back from 4 days at splash, personally I don't think the choice is as good as last season and you no longer get a drink as part of the buffet, refill sodas are now £3.25. The starters tend to be a combination of tomato soup with either leak & potato or vegetable, there are also ...

Re: Splash Landings Vs Alton Towers Hotel

I've stayed in both. The atmosphere is better in splash but you don't get much sleep due kids running in the corridors and slamming doors.

I'm going to go with riding the smiler in the dark after the fireworks. That was some experience and really disorientating.

Re: On-Ride Breakdown Experiences

Oblivion in Sept 2012 on the brake a couple of foot before the drop. The engineering department in work managed to get a day of "team bonding" at alton towers. The weather was horrendous and it was freezing cold. As we got to the top of the lift hill, moving slowly towards the drop there w...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

So after being on park for 3 days and finally riding the smiler, I only have one question. How long does it take for that music to get out of your head? Absolutely ages. I've still got it ringing through my head now and I left yesterday at 3 o'clock! All I can hear is Ha ha ha, ha ha ha, ha ha ha h...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

I was (and I'm still) against people that complained on the 23rd or even today, because it's obviously not AT's fault. However, I have to admit that AT is handling the issue in a really disrespectful manner. They should just grow some balls (and respect) and announce something like "Smiler to ...

Re: Official - The Smiler Opening Meet Thursday 23rd May – Who's going?

Hi Every one, Just wanted to say I had a great time at the meet up yesterday. Was good to meet people and put some faces to names. Shame the car park attended did not let me keep my scribbled free parking pass from guest services.

Hopefully I will be able to attend more meets in the future :)
