Re: Standard vs Premium MAP?

Hi Jack, thanks for your reply. What more do you get with the Premium than the Standard Pass? What am I missing out on the Premium Pass, if I get a Standard Pass?

Standard vs Premium MAP?

Hi guys, I'm thinking of getting a pass next year. What's the difference between the Merlin Standard and Premium Passes?
Is it worth going for the Premium pass or is the Standard pass good enough? Your feedback is much appreciated, thanks! :)

Re: 2015 Scarefest

Does anyone know if the same areas of the park are being used for the re vamped scare attractions or are they in new spots of the park? I think the use of haunted hollow would be good for a maze/scare attraction as its quite dank and creepy! Also in the woods behind the fence near thirteen and the p...

Re: 2015 Scarefest

Yeh it was on a sunday that i went hence the hi vis jackets and metal detectors.

Cant understand people who avoid going the same day just because of the travelling community meet-ups.
Best for peeps to go and see for themselves!

Tbh the school trips groups can be more of an headache lol.

Re: What Should Happen Now? (Smiler Incident 2015)

Id like to see rubber safety bumpers fitted to the front and back of each car/train so that if the system or human error happens like on tuesday, then the damage wont be as severe when crashes. Cant understand why they havnt already got these on all similar multi car on track coasters as the possibi...

Re: Scarefest 1st weekend 20th oct sunday

Well we went to AT last sunday which coincided with the travellers meet up, and I would just like to say that the myth that there's loads of trouble and anti-social behaviour from them is quite rude and an unfair label tbh. Yes, there were extra security/police and checks at the main entrance turnst...

Re: Scarefest 1st weekend 20th Oct Sunday

That is when most of the enthusiasts will go and I heard that the travellers come on the first weekend of Scarefest and trust me, the travellers ARE BAD! Even though the park closes at at 7pm on the first Monday-Friday of Scarefest, I would say it's still the best choice and there is a good chance ...

Re: I'm getting worried about Air

I went AT on the 4th july and air seemed a bit more gutsy than when i went in may but all other rides are the same for me! For instance last year at scarefest we went on thirteen and i know theres a difference to the feel depending on whether u sit on the front seats or back but i went on it 8 times...
