Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I know it is a small thing, but I am quite disappointed by that sign. It looks like a vinyl overlay, but what niggles me is the border has been cut off, therefore no it longer matches the main entrance sign.

Re: Merlin General Discussion

Was it listed under this before? I have a feeling it did, but in no way should it be classified as a theme park!

They also list Warwick as a theme park?

Hi Salskia, welcome to the forum.

Yes, it is. Please ask reception for opening times as they can vary.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

That is a first! I've never heard of that before, but it might have something to do with the length of the Summer Term.

Hopefully, it benefits guests visiting as numbers are more spread out.

Re: TT Spring Spectacular 2019 - Reviews & Feedback

I'm glad that everyone seemed to enjoy the event. It was a great day and possibly one of my favourite events! I'm also happy to see we had some new attendees too and pleased that you have all managed to come away smiling. That is a sign of a good event! Hopefully we will see you all again very soon!

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I actually think it is a good thing that it remains unmarked. It allows for genuine use of the system.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I'd very much doubt that a school would be going back today. Schools either broke up on Friday 5th or a week later. Some schools around Alton broke up on the Thursday just gone. Operations on the whole were good. Th13teen was in particular, along with Galactica which was pushing them through! Oblivi...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

The coaster is completely different to others as it has sudden drops, so the forces will be different, something which I think people forget sometimes. It’s not the drops or the forces, it’s the way the car bounces along the track like a runaway shopping trolley with a wheel missing. Now that is Bl...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Saw is horrible, avoid at all costs. It’s very well themed but it’s also up there with the roughest coaster I’ve ever ridden. I think Saw has become a bit of a scapegoat for claims of being rough. The coaster is completely different to others as it has sudden drops, so the forces will be different,...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Air was the first coaster I properly fell in love with although controversial I do prefer the Galactica branding. I just hope they put a few more pieces of theming around the ride area and paint the tunnel.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

I think it is important to just collect the ones you like, otherwise it becomes a very demanding and expensive hobby.

I do go for special pins though, such as the Power of the Towers, as they will be rare!

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

It is worth doing if you've not been on it before, but if you have then I'd say focus on the coasters!
