Re: Alton Towers Hex Tree! PTR - 20/11/14

We travelled there last night (19/11/14) but was to dark by the time we was looking for it so we changed our minds and came back today. Nonsense! The first time I visited the tree was around midnight :P makes the whole experience, especially if it's the first time you've been there, much more creep...

Re: TT ScareMazing North 2014 - Reviews & Feedback

Super long post ahead - sorry, I rambled! Sorry for the lateness in posting, was at AT again Sunday after SMN, and have had a busy week with work/a wedding/preparing for holiday this coming week. This was my first TT event, and myself and my partner both had a fantastic time! Whilst we didn't have c...

Re: 2015 Rumours

I don't know if it's just me, but when the guys giving us a talk at AT yesterday morning were asked about plans for next year, it did seem that there was something they were not yet willing to talk about.

Re: TT ScareMazing North - 25th October 2014

Got my ticket! The contact numbers for the day will be on the itinerary which will be sent out soon. I can't see any contact details on the itinerary or the email that was sent, not sure if I'm just missing them somewhere or they've been missed off. Hopefully I shan't need them but just in case or f...

Re: TT ScareMazing North - 25th October 2014

Have tickets been emailed yet? The reservation email said usually about 2 weeks before the event but I haven't received anything yet (I check my spam folder daily too). Also is there an itinerary work tiles for the enemy?

I thought that would be the case from the wording. Shame, would have been interesting to see. I'm sure with everything else the day will be great though!

Re: TT ScareMazing North - 25th October 2014

I saw in the SMS thread there were behind the scenes tours of the mazes, is there similar for SMN? I can't see it mentioned on the event page but could be a part of Scarefest Revealed?

Re: Congo River Rapids

I love the rapids. I get stuck almost every time but that's part of the fun and why I enjoy it so much. Last time was just before the lift at the end, got stuck just bouncing off the rocks then another boat would come and push us back into the rocks. I think it was 11 boats that overtook us in the e...

Re: Alton Towers 1966 Video

There's still a few of those vertical drop slides around, they just seem to be a lot less common these days. Don't think it's a H&S thing as there's one in a children's play area at a wildlife park near me, quite a tall one too. Wanted to go on it myself but not having kids I thought I might loo...

Re: 2nd day tickets with hotel offer

This is already offered through the Short Breaks on the website, at least for other local hotels, but I assume for at the resort also. I've booked a weekend for Scarefest, 1 night in a Hilton near by plus 2 day tickets, £145 for 2 of us I think it was but process carry depending on time you go and w...

Re: Lightwater Valley: Ultimate decapitates Deer

Probably safe to assume the title is somewhat exaggerated. Further in the article it states the deer was "reportedly decapitated", with no source for said report, and no further mention of blood showering riders. That's not to say it didn't happen, but I'd be surprised if it happened as th...

Re: Your Very First Rollercoaster!

The Scenic Railway at Dreamland. I was so scared of roller coasters back then. I remember queueing with my parents and then leaving the queue because I didn't want to go on it. I overcame that fear eventually though, and shortly after that would have been the Looping Star (also at Dreamland). Man th...

Re: Alton Towers - Quick Questions

Good to hear, I guess...could be worse, is what I'm getting at :P Thinking back to my last visit, it wasn't just The Smiler out of operation that day, at one point in the day there was only one ride running in X Sector, Enterprise if I remember rightly. I'm sure it was only brief, bit disappointing ...

Re: Alton Towers - Quick Questions

How's the reliability of The Smiler these days? I was following the news quite closely around the time it was supposed to open, so read about the delays and teething problems. When I visited in June last year it seemed there were still some issues, meaning it was closed throughout most of the day (a...

Re: Ghosts- real, or not real?

I don't believe in ghosts or anything else supernatural/out of this world, but I am open to the possibilities, should any indisputable evidence present itself to me. I am fascinated by the topics, I love horror films based on those kind of things, and ghost stories (or other kinds of supernatural th...

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

Didn't find this thread when I joined last night, so I posted in the Scaremazing North thread. I guess I'll just quote the post from there to save me writing out a new introduction, as it's getting late, and it already explains how I ended up here. Guess I ought to post in here, at least to introduc...

Re: ScareMazing North - 25th October 2014

Thanks a lot Adz! One question I forgot to ask - do we need to purchase the separate Scaremaze ticket through AT's site to be able to participate in the Extreme mazes? If not, then fantastic value for Scaremazing, with everything included for only a few quid more!
