No i wasn't saying that. I was suggesting that why congo river rapids is what i meant. You get wet and for a girl that isn't the best thing in the world. I love it though because i am more of a tomboy that a girly girl. I will send some pics of me at alton towers on a different topic :D

Re: At what age can you not handle thrill rides anymore?

I'm 45 this July and John will be 53 in October. We love all different types of rides. The only reason we will ever stop doing them,will be through health issues,not age. Hopefully we will both still be riding in to our 80s/90s. Bring Em On.....lol You Never know Air could of been replaced by then ...

Where to start at Alton Towers!

Hey Guys,

So i am going to Alton Towers on Saturday and I get to go in at 9am. I was wondering where is it best to start before the park gets too busy. Is it best to go on the smiler and oblivion and rita?

Love,

Re: At what age can you not handle thrill rides anymore?

i don't think there will ever be an age where you cannot handle them anymore. My dad is 46 and loves them. He can handle it very well indeed. Your still young so enjoy it. The more you go on them as you get older the less chance of you not being able to handle it :D
