Re: Towers Loving Care

Thats a nice update to see, however I think they should replace the outdoor speakers around the Nemesis area so that there is bass because at the moment the sound quite tinny. Also, it would be cool if they added a speaker near the turnaround to the loop because you can barely hear the nemesis audi...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Been twice this week and the projectors are always a niggle for me. They are never aligned and some not working. If they cant be aligned periodically i think they would be better changing them for something else

Re: Scarefest

Managed to talk to an actor from tower of terrors today and asked how they deal with strobe room. Answer was the strobe is in a sequence and they do blinking exercises to counter the effect. I went in again and the strobe does go in a sequence. They also get plenty of breaks. Then did sub species wh...

Re: Scarefest

Yesterday was first time I've actually done the mazes. Well did 2 out of 3. Did the mine tours first and I was disappointed. Maybe it was a bad run as I didn't seem to get picked on at all. I was at back and heard people in front scream etc but never really saw anything apart from a semi naked fat b...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Perhaps moral just a bit low on park with the staff cuts. Ah well onwards and upwards for AT now the year mark has passed.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I decided to go to the park today. Has anyone noticed the Smiler staff dont Smile? Not really a day in history to be smiling which could of played a part in their overall mood. The staff are usually spot on across the park. Yeah like i said not just today but on most the visits ive made to the Smil...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I can imagine they are sick of questions or maybe sick jokes as to whats happened but I always find Towers staff to be over the top happy and friendly. Maybe im reading too much into it just being Smiler staff.....perhaps with all the cuts all the staff are a little under the weather so to speak. Th...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I decided to go to the park today. Had a great day which included 4 rides on the Smiler. Its not the first time ive been on since it re opened but today i realised what was missing. Has anyone noticed the Smiler staff dont Smile? They used to be quite fun and zany. Nemesis, Blivvy, Rita staff etc al...

Re: SW8

As soon as it's actually removed the normal park goer won't even remember it. If it is a coaster that replaces it, the flume will be forgotten in a heartbeat. I still don't understand why people are so upset over its removal, it was dirty, old, didn't run very well, took up a massive amount of spac...

Re: SW8

Went yesterday and took sky ride over the flume.
Looks weird being drained out. The other family in the car were saying its so sad for it to be going and how can you have a theme park with no flume.
I think gp expect a water ride to replace
