Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

I was walking past the flume in the Haunted Hollow and there were a group of chavs and one of the chavs thought the flume was Th13teen... However one of the other chavs were intelligent enough to correct him.  :clap:

Re: Submission to be removed

One of those would look amazing in X-Sector! It would make the area look so much better! Even with M.O.J theming.

Re: The Smiler over closed season 13/14

Yeah they went way too overboard with the cameras on the entrance, if it had a couple of cameras it would be a bit better.

Re: The Smiler over closed season 13/14

Few things I've noticed: Main track seems to be a different colour. It's a very dim orange, so it's certainly not been deliberately painted - the only other option is that it's wear & tear. The ride has been operating for only a few months, enough wear and tear to faintly rust the track is comp...

Re: MI7 Strikes again... First glimpses of CBeebies Land

Re: MI7 Strikes again... First glimpses of CBeebies Land

Upon closer inspection, it appears there is large packaging but the staffy knot, this is very unlikely but it almost looks like one of the ride cars, having four rows. What's people's opinions?? Its very hard to make out what this actually is, my first thought was simply fencing repair? They have t...

Re: SW8

I personally cant expect the next secret weapon to be a woodie. All of the SW's have been steel and I personally just think it would be a bit odd. Maybe a one off coaster would be alright but certainly not a SW. ;)

Re: What do you think this Nemesis theming element is?

Re: Splash Landings Vs Alton Towers Hotel

I have visited both hotels however only stayed over night in the ATH. I personally think the ATH is my fave but both are still really nice.

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

I was at the park entrance and a kid pointed out at The Corkcrew monument (mind you he was only about 6) and said "Is that The Smiler??") He was only young but it was pretty funny :D
