Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Hopefully, the references to VR will be fully removed and the theme enhanced to fit it with the Galactica theme. No doubt we will see the removal of EVE too.

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

Personally, I'd do the following... Octonaughts Runaway Mine Train Th13teen Wicker Man (Although should not be underestimated) Oblivion Rita Galactica Nemesis The Smiler I've listed them in this particular order as you'll start off slow and then invert towards the end. I would say though, if you are...

Re: Alton Towers Stargazing Pods - Opening April 12th 2019

Do you think people will make the effort to go to the toilet in the block? I really hope it doesn't happen, but if drunk (or even sober) guests need the toilet, then they may decide to go elsewhere... let's say up the side! Those with young children may struggle too!

Not for me I'm afraid!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I’m not sure how I feel about the map this year. It looks much more cluttered than it already did, purely because they’ve added the accommodation options down the left hand side of the map, primarily to show off the Stargazing Pods. While I understand the need for them to advertise the Pods whereve...

mgsb_insta has posted a photo showing the arcade in Dark Forest boarded up. It looks unlikely that it will return for 2019.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

With the brand already existing, I suppose it isn't that difficult to implement. The show concepts exist and the props can easily be recreated!

I really can't wait for this!

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Single riders are good, but they can be abused by large group at times, however, if it fills up empty seats then great. It is most certainly a step in the right direction though!

With regards to the pit being cleaned... at last!!
Let's hope the rest of the ride has been brought up to standards!

Re: Chessington - General Discussion

Thanks for the photos, Chris! :)

I am so pleased that they have taken the times to address the problems of the field car parks. Honestly, considering the size of some of the potholes, you could have easily mistaken them for sinkholes! Basic maintenance that will make a massive difference!

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

You can see the Operation below, but I don't think it is an officially branded item. I could be wrong, but it looks like Hasbro has just stuck a Dungeons sticker on the cellophane.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

It looks small from the outside, but I am expecting poster frames to be added to the wood, along with a map of the attraction. Most definitely, the Charile theming will be covered up, how this is done, I am not sure, but there are more wooden polls nearby (not pictured). It could be simply painted, ...

Re: The Swarm

I really got involved with the viral marketing of The Swarm, so much so that I managed 3rd place. The YouMeAtSix single also added to the rides debut. It is a shame they don't used the lyrics more! The ride is short, but as others have said, very good. It is a very comfortable ride, but backwards wa...
