Re: Alton Towers: What Ever Happened to...?

It was in Vampires queue line before Molly Crowe, so it's possible it came back up then ended up in its new location on return

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

The reason for people's lack of faith is because this was Altons response last year when pictures started to emerge of Ripsaw in pieces. I have only been able to look at the pictures on my phone so far but the supports in the first picture appear to have been cut off. Sent from my E6653 using Tapatalk

Re: SW8

I wouldn't read to much into that, I am sure I read on another the very same reply when I asked.
It was the use of the phrase thwarted my plans which stuck in my mind. So maybe he is just having fun with us.

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

The irony of this now is that Alton have removed the AP gate this year. They used to have one gate for years but I noticed last year they seemed to stop using it even at busy times and my wife and I would get turned away from it when ever we tried to use it.

Re: Alton Towers: What Ever Happened to...?

Unfortunately we never went to chessington before we noticed the carriage disappear from gloomy wood to be sure. We are just going by the fact it looked more dumped out the way against a wall so you struggled to see the back was cut away to allow you to pose in the coffin. Like I say it could just b...

Re: Alton Towers: What Ever Happened to...?

Last time we went to Chessington what looked suspiciously like the carriage from gloomy wood was tucked away in the queue line for Vampire. They may have had there own but you could see the cut out in the back for you to pose for pictures like the one in gloomy wood and this one was in no place for ...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

I appreciate that and I realised I was opening a can of worms with my reply. I understand if the fast track entrance is at the exit by all means use the exit. My gripe was more the people who don't want to join the fast track queue itself if the ride has one. Also I know its Merlins way of trying to...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

I am sorry to write this and please don't hate me, because if I could afford a V.I.P pass I admit I would buy one if I could justify getting the use out of it. As much as I am enjoying reading about everyone's positive experience with the new pass I will be honest and admit I am getting bored of peo...

Re: Ticket Prices To Rise for 2014

I thanks to Tesco now hold a MAP and have done for a while , for me though I find its ok saying no one pays full price but the last time I didn't have a MAP and was using the 2-1 vouchers the magic just wasn't there for me. For me to get the buzz of saving I want to feel like I have done well to get...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Hi I was wondering about renewing my passes and was wondering if the renewal price was the normal renewal price or also reduced in the sale.

Plus has anyone else noticed if you go onto Thorpe park's site, their AP is cheaper to buy new than to renew!!!

Re: Make The Gardens A Future Attraction Once More?

Hi I was saying something similar to my brother on our last visit when we cut through to dark forest and I remember the house on the terrace and was saying that its a shame its used as storage now rather than a tea house. You could even look to use it for wedding with it being secluded and easy to m...

Alton Towers Website Front page

Hi just been on the website today and noticed what looks like it should be the Nemesis but the restraints look wrong. I accept it will be made with CG but surely they could have made it look like it should fit in.

Re: Complaining to Merlin

Ok I was only using The Smiler as an example of what I had heard about peoples experiences with dealing with Merlin. Thankfully I was able to make other arrangements to do something different more disappointed as this would have been the first time I would have been able to go on opening day for a m...

Re: Complaining to Merlin

I admit to that, and that has not been in my actual complaint as I do accept that about rides, was more an example of how Merlin has been this season, though most general public did get free return tickets as a minimum when they went to guest services. Though from posts from pass holders was they we...

Complaining to Merlin

Hi I hope this is in the right section as this is my first topic I have started.   I was wondering what other people experience is with complaining to merlin, I have read through posts in the past and people have said it's not worth it.     The reason I ask is because over this past s...
