Re: Planning Application for Enhancements to Air

As for the new coaster which planning permission was submitted for, I'm quite happy about that, as well as the re-opening of The Smiler. Hopefully it'll restore some faith in the public's view of Alton Towers. They haven't submitted a planning application for a new coaster. Earlier last year they r...

Its opening this year (2016) probably a new year mistake as previously suggested.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

A video was released around 4 hours ago. New ride? Or something else.

Summer Sizzler tickets were £16 last year, but bear in mind that the price may vary depending on exclusives. If you also require a valid form of theme park admission, corporate tickets are usually available for around £25.


Thanks. Only needed a ballpark figure! :D

Re: Events Calendar 2016

Quick question. How much roughly were the summer sizzler tickets last year? My friend and I are planning on on going but she's not an enthusiast like me so the price is useful to convince her!

Re: If You could bring back one past ride?

I've seen many people say Thunder Looper, and rides like that, but even though I'm too young to have ridden them, I wouldn't bring them back. I would bring back Alton Towers in its entirety from the 1970s, when they just had the small simple amusements! I would love to be able to see our beloved the...

Re: Towers Loving Care

Hopefully the new 'Towers Loving Care' project doesn't leave out any part of the park no matter how small, even if it's just some worn off paint on a handrail compared, to ride scenery(cough nemesis track cough), but I don't have my hopes up!

Tomorrowland Music Festival

Tomorrowland in Belgium seems like a great time, full of great music and people. I'm just curious on what people's opinions are and what it's actually like to go!?

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

This may sound harsh but the person who I feel sorry for the most is the ride op in charge when it happened. IMO that doesn't sound harsh, the ride op will feel terrible about what happened and even though most of the riders will have physical injury for the rest of their lives the ride op will lik...

Re: The Future of Sonic Spinball

I've always had aloft spot for Sonic Spinball as it was my first ever coaster, and I always make sure to ride it on every visit. I hope that the park leaves it in for many for years.

While I'm not a new member I've not been on the forum in around a year so I thought I might as well reintroduce myself. Some of you may remember me, from the the late night towers times skype and in the shoutbox!

BlackGang Chine

BlackGang Chine is reportedly the oldest theme park in the UK. Maybe the world. When I was there recently there was a new 'world' opening (Area 5). And I thought it'd be interesting to hear everyones opinion of the park.
