Re: #AltonTowersMagic

Because I'm old (enough!) I used to have 2 Henry Hound picture books - one about there being treasure in the Towers, and Henry The Artist!!!

Re: The Future of RITA..

I LOVE Rita, but I did find when I last went that it was rough - the others in my group went straight back round for 2 re-rides (it was a very quiet day!) but I had to sit it out. Would definitely be sad to see it go though!

Re: Alton Towers Dungeon Stag Do

On a hen party I once went on we went to York Dungeon and it was BRILLIANT! The bride was picked on for everything and we had such a laugh!

Re: Rate the Rollercoasters [2019]

1. Wicker Man 2. Nemesis 3. Thirteen 4. Smiler 5. RMT - always got a soft spot for it! 6. Oblivion - terrifying, I won't go on it unless everyone else in the crew is. 7. Rita - gone way down my list due to being rough. 8. Galactica - never liked it even before the VR. 9. Octonauts - never been on it...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Same in Sheffield - kids have had the last two weeks off and are back today. I think they're trying to standardise when the Easter holiday is so it's not necessarily at Easter itself?

Re: Overcoming fears: Tamest and most thrilling seat for each coaster

Great work! I'm also scared of heights and still often shut my eyes going round the top of Oblivion.  For years the biggest thing I could go on was RMT, and the thing that changed it for me was going with a group of people I hardly knew. Before we were together, I went with my now boyfriend and a gr...

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!

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...

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
