Re: Rita - General Discussion

It used to be my favourite but after my trip in May last year it's been way demoted - it was SO rough!

Potentially daft question (as I don't know) - are there ways of making a rollercoaster smoother? how would they do that?

Re: On-Ride Breakdown Experiences

I can't imagine anything more terrifying than being evacuated from the Skyride. I have to close my eyes whenever I'm on it!

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

I've just realised (and searched the thread!) that I've not posted in here introducing myself...I've actually been on TT forum since 2013. I discovered you guys when I was recovering from a bad illness and then post-viral fatigue, so thank you!  I live about 90 mins drive from Towers so try and go d...

They are cute, but for us lanky folks there's not a lot of space!

Podcasts

Hi guys This is my first time starting a new post - go me! I did put "podcasts" in the search bar and nothing came up for what I wanted. Because I'm an old person, I've only just in the last 6 months discovered that podcasts are amazing and I'm working through some of them at an alarming r...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

When I was 15, I went with school (please remember this was 2003 so a while ago now!) and the teachers made sure we knew where and when the coach would be leaving. They then legged it off around the park leaving us to fend for ourselves whilst they got on all the best rides :lol

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Good news - both myself and the backpack survived unscathed! It's mainly Rita's baggage hold that worried me cos it is SO unsecure!

We saw a few people getting a good shove whilst staff give something at the side of the car a poke with a yellow stick thing? but nobody being asked to leave.

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

Penguins would be AMAZING (charismatic megafauna ftw!) but would they have enough space for a decently sized enclosure for them or Otters? I'll be honest, I've not been in Sharkbait (it's usually too full of children for me) so don't know what it's like in there.

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Got 3 rides on Wicker Man yesterday and could easily have had more - I didn't see the queue time go above 20 mins on the app - but my group wanted to get on as many different rides as possible as it was so quiet. We got to the park about 9.45 and agreed that we would get to Wicker Man and just try t...
