Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Alton have said John will be around "Throughout the weekend". However, on a post by Merlin Backstage they said that John would only be present on the Friday.

Re: TowersTimes’ Summer Festival Vol.2 - Reviews & Feedback

This event was the best one yet!! (I say this every time lol). The courtyard takeover in the evening was amazing and the highlight of the day, the dances were great fun! The maintenance talk was so interesting to me as that is what my dream job is so I'd love to see more talks from them in the futur...

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

I've heard it was a sensor issue on the restraints. (To be fair they have been having a bit of trouble with the restraints this season!) But then again there's so many rumours flying about no one really knows :lol

Re: SP Southern Screamer 2019 - Reviews & Feedback

This was an absolutely fantastic event and by far my favourite day at Thorpe I've ever had!!! The Ninferno ERT was insane and managed 18 rides which was amazing and the talk was fascinating too. However, like everyone else has said... DBGT behind the scenes blows the other exclusives out of the wate...

Re: Lightwater Valley

Not good, hope they make a full and speedy recovery.

I am slightly worried as to how this will affect the park. If they have to pay out compensation + downfall in visitor numbers they will lose out on a lot of money which I guess they don’t have much of in the first place! Not good!

Street Mission - 6.5/10 (I thought 6 was too low and 7 too high :lol ) Went on Street Mission today for the first time, and I was slightly underwhelmed. Don’t get me wrong, the theming is brilliant, and you do feel rather immersed and the animatronics are fab, but it was just a little ‘bland’. This...

The Star has published an article showing drone footage of the new park! It’s looking rather nice and more work has been done than i was expecting!

Re: Gulliver's Valley Resort - Sheffield

After a lovely bike ride around Rother Valley Country Park earlier today, I decided to take a turn down a small road which brought me out behind the perimeter fence at what I believe is the rear end of the park! Sign along the small road to notify delivery drivers this is not the entrance! :lol http...

Re: TT Spring Spectacular 2019 - Reviews & Feedback

Yesterday was absolutely fantastic! Although it always is so no surprise there! Smiler ERT to start the day was... Cold! Sore head and numb hands aside, Smiler is always a fun ERT to do (but only front row because every other row is torture)! The ride takeovers were as fun as ever, it is so much mor...

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

I have a suspicion that there may be an opening ceremony for the stargazing pods tonight.

There are some temporary lights and speakers set up in one corner and there is a team of people from Jubilee Fireworks present!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

To be fair, I think Spinball also has a permanent SRQ because I went on a Monday a couple of weeks back and it was empty (0-5 min queues maximum) so you'd expecting for the SRQ to be unavailable but the park confirmed on Twitter it was in use. However after queuing in the main queue (was only 0 mins...
