Re: Universal Orlando Resort

Visited the Volcano Bay water park the other day, the rides are great but the TapuTapu bands need some big improvements. You're only allowed to reserve one ride at a time, meaning that we were waiting up to over two hours to ride some slides, which ended with us only riding three slides all day! And...

Re: Early Ride Time 2016

Early Ride Time was pretty disappointing on Friday, luckily I didn't go for it (but entered the park at around 9:40). Both Oblivion and Spinball were closed due to technical reasons leaving only Enterprise and CBeebies Land open, which would've felt like a waste of time if you'd actually gone for ER...

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

Was queuing for Rita on Friday when a family in front said "Remember that ride we rode on holiday, it was life-threatening. You got to the top and went straight off the edge of the track"

Doubt it..

Re: Oblivion

Oblivion was the ride I was most apprehensive about riding. The drop was very dominating and it didn't help that the ride broke down just before I got on for the first time. But the ride itself is very enjoyable and the drop is nowhere near as bad as it looks, and it's all over pretty quick. I reall...

How busy will it be on the 8th of April? Am I right that the local schools will be back by then?

Re: The Future Of Scarefest

Last years Scarefest would have been probably the best had the scare zones been in the old design of guests walking down a specific route, and from what I can remember only about one actor in each scare zone actually noticed me and my friend. I really do hope they return to the old scare zone format...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I think it'd be best opening with no announcement, and there will still be a handful of guests who will be put off because "it's not safe" (even though it wouldn't be opening if it wasn't safe!)

Re: Gulliver's Valley Resort - Sheffield

I live 2 minutes away! It'll be interesting to see how it all turns out, they've got a lot of space to work with as Rother Valley and the surrounding areas are huge.

Re: What rides should I go on at Alton Towers?

Have you got early ride time? If you do you'll be able to get Nemesis and Air done in the first hour and there's never any queues.

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

I can see The Smiler re-opening next year, which I think is what happened with the RMT. I don't think it will put people off riding. If it is closed for the rest of the season but is shown testing and goes through strict safety procedures I think it will stop the public worrying and hopefully it can...

It's made news internationally too. So shocked about the crash and hope the best for those involved and their families.

Re: Rides you want to see go.

Maybe Enterprise. It's just been there ages and it isn't really exciting, I think they should just remove it and put in two new flats into X-Sector.

Well if what Karnan said is what Secret Weapon 8 will be, well it's not very secret anymore... I also don't believe it, how can one person know so much, the plans haven't been accepted, no one else has heard anything either. However if at some point you can show us these images I will be happy to se...

Re: Alton Towers History Area/Movie

Like it says most people will go to AT for the rides, with only the enthusiasts really being bothered about the history, I doubt it'd ever get built.

Re: 2015 Scarefest

I think one maze that definitely needs more actors is Terror of the Towers. After we watched the video and went through, it was ages before there were any actors. But hopefully if there is a re-theme, they'll have much more actors placed around the maze.
