Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Ahh in that case - How will the queue times look like if I were to go this Friday?

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I am thinking of going to the park tomorrow or Wednesday to do the Scarefest thing hopefully before the schools break up. With limited numbers what are the queue times like during Scarefest (this year), would there be any fast track passes available after 4pm? How much are they (heard about £10!). I...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Also as well, are they doing this to try and increase fast track tickets for the rides only open for 4 hours? Or will it not make much difference as subsequently they also lose money on fast track between 10am-12pm?

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Terrible. We usually get there for opening (Early Ride Time)  and get the day over and done with by 2pm and make our way home (Essex) probably doing a few rides on the main hitters. The fact that the opening times are staggered makes this difficult. Yeah it can still be done on quiet days but if we ...

Re: The Future of Nemesis Sub-Terra

I agree with the post a few pages ago about the VR headsets, I think this would really be a cool way to re-invent the attraction, I know it would be at a cost to do it all in VR but would attract more visitors and in theory you would have less actors if its all in VR anyway.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

They have wrapped the 'head' for two reasons, 1) So no one can see it and 2) So the team can work on it, by that in a way where all sides are even and the team can work on it with space. It's not like wrapping a Christmas present where its obvious its a bottle of wine, they will need space to actual...

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

Thorpe had a really bad day today. Colossus down for a good couple of hours as everyone already knows. Nemesis Inferno had technical issues due to seats in Row 5 not buckling properly. Tidal Wave/Stealth not operating until after lunchtime. Ghost Train - Not running all day until 3pm, then when on t...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I was on the first batch at 3pm today (had Ultimate/VIP fast track) and the whole thing was a mess really. Firstly we waited a good few minutes to get onto the ride as the operators didn't seem to know what was happening, then when we finally got on we only had about 2 minutes worth of the experienc...

What about for VIP's?

VIP MAP holders are entitled to fastrack.


Is there a fast track line or would VIPs go to the disabled queue?

How does this affect the fast track queue then?

Feels like there are loads of extra queues and something has to give?

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Out of interest how far away are the emergency services from Alton Towers?

I couldn't imagine it would be very close and would take a at least 10-15 minutes to get to the park, let alone however long it takes once inside?

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Thanks to everyone who answered my questions. I just thought that if the business lost quite a bit of money then they could maybe recoup it by opening a week or two later in the year to please pass holders, to help business and even the staff at the park with those on zero contracts losing out for e...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I just wanted to ask a few random questions about the ramifications of this accident. 1. Out of interest lets just assume that those injured will have treatment paid for and probably a hefty payout to compensate for injuries (settled out of court) who actually covers this? Alton Towers/Merlin or the...

How does the RNR work with fast track? For example all day fast track.

As someone who isn't quite up to speed with the knowledge you guys clearly have could anyone put a rough picture or something as to how big and how this coaster may turn out?

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

The park seemed busy last week (kids went back to school last Thursday up in that neck of the woods). Although I am in two minds about the staggered start times it does give everyone the chance to ride everything before lunchtime (well, the super six). In theory you can easily do Nemesis & Air b...

Re: New for 2015 - I'm a Celebrity! Maze

Thought it was awful when we went. Fast track queue took forever (20 plus minutes) and it all seemed a bit disjointed inside as in no one knew what they were doing because nothing was explained properly. Things were missing, staff didn't really seem that into it (some did, others didn't) and it kind...
