Re: What reminds you of theme park magic that isn't a theme park?

You've sparked some more now  :lol - Any of the reggae songs that used to be played in the waterpark - The smell of chlorine and sweat (like the corridors of Splash on a hot summer's afternoon). Should be horrible but it isn't when you have good memories associated with it  :lol - Any old cottage/ho...

Re: Oktoberfest - General Discussion

It would be interesting to compare the Thorpe and Towers events, and I think it's good that one is aimed at adults and one is more family-friendly.

It will also be interesting to see how many "guest illnesses" occur as a result!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hello all! What is your perception of Alton Towers as a Theme Park? Why do you see it as a 'want to visit' park compared to other parks. What is the pull (if any) that sets it out from any other park in the world that keeps you interested? Thanks in advance! Sorry for the late reply! For me it is t...

Re: Pleasurewood Hills

Having visited PWH a couple of weeks ago, I can confirm that Egg-spress is definitely worth paying a visit if you're round that way. The main track of the ride itself is still as it was, with no repaint, but the station has been completely redone and looks marvellous! Without giving away too many sp...

Re: Looking to make friends

In addition, while there's a good range of nerdiness levels on here (ranging from chilled theme park fans to raging geeks) what we all share is an appreciation of finding such, rare and like-minded humans, and even friends for life, so yeah I'd say pop along to a meet one day and see how it goes :D ...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

With regards to 'Darkest Depths', as awesome as it would be to have a scare attraction set within Sharkbait Reef, I can't help wondering how the combination of jumpy, terrified humans and glass tanks would go down. I agree with the article in reckoning it'll be situated in the Courtyard. Mind you, w...

Re: Heritage

Speaking of local abandoned stations, you can also pop a little further along to the old Oakamoor station. To get to it, you go down a little road called Mill Rd, off the B5417 in Oakamoor (google maps will help!!). Keep heading down slowly and things will eventually be self-explanatory. You'll get ...

Re: Heritage

What's everyone's favourite bit of the gardens?

It's a tough one for me but I particularly like the hidden chambers underneath the conservatories where they used to use fire to heat the pool thing above(at least that's what I've been told they were for) :D

Re: Pleasurewood Hills

Indeed, there have been pictures on the park's Facebook page of what looked like a crack on a pale surface (like an egg) and another one posted later on with a flurry of white feathers. Something bird-related it would seem! I also recall seeing the word "egg-citing"(or something similar) b...

Re: Pleasurewood Hills

Never before have I been so excited to see a little clone ride come back! Bring it on. As long as it's brought back in a similar level of glory as when it was in its heyday(tunnel, effects etc), then we'll all be happy. It may not be a totally brand new investment but at least its renovation will se...

Looking forward to seeing what this guy has to offer! He seems to have his heart in it, rather than it just being a business opportunity for him, so we'll have to keep an eye out for changes.

Re: Careers - Interviews and Job Advice

Agreed with above. There always seems to be a mix of levels of smartness(anything from a tracksuit to a full on suit) but I'd suggest erring slightly more on the smart side, but not being too uptight-looking. That way you can't go wrong :) Not only does it improve your employers' view of you, but al...

Re: Careers - Interviews for towers

Hi you awesome people.  Hi you awesome people.  Was hoping to get some advice on the interview process. I've done a lot of research to prepare for the 4/5 hour interview. That said i think I'm way overthinking this. I've read loads of employee reviews, some of which are from 2018. But they are real...
