Re: Plan of attack - Alton Towers

Not sure what the plan is this year but probably similar to what we did last year but less darting around thanks to an out of action skyride. Las...

Re: How do you feel about re-riding rides?

I enjoy re-riding rides , helps get your moneys worth. Last year there wasn't many queues so we got a lot of re-rides. we tend to ride the rides we want to once , if there is any we particularly like we will ride again. then after everything is done we go back to any we fancy riding even more. last ...

Re: Flappy Bird

My high score is 3 right now and that was after days being stuck on one. Also those eBay bids are obviously troll bidders and though I would normally hate troll bidders good on them I say. Only sad people would buy them and why bother putting them up for sale either.
