Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

A friend of mine is dressing up for Scarefest and he's dressing as a Phalanx Operator, I know Alton do not allow masks at all but he was wondering if they allow toy guns (I'm thinking they most likely don't but it doesn't hurt to ask)

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I'm thinking about booking a stay in The Smiler room for scarefest this year and looking on the website it says you get a 2 day fast track but it doesn't really explain much more then that so if anyone who has stayed in the room sees this post. Do the fastracks you get let you repeatedly ride The Sm...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

My friend is going to buy the premium annual pass and since he has a disability he told me that i can get a free carers pass. Has anyone on here had a carers pass in the past? and is the carers pass different to the actual pass?

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I'll still visit Alton Towers because it's my favorite park. The changes are pretty bad right now but i'm really hoping that NST and Hex will make a return for this season and if they do then i might just be able to get over the opening/closing times. I'm also hoping that TLC have done some major im...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

In my previous post i was thinking about getting the premium annual pass instead of standard seeing as you get a bit more with premium. This is my first pass and in the past i'd usually visit the park 4 or 5 times a year (Hoping to visit a bit more often then that) so i'm wondering if it's worth buy...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Let's hope that it is just maintenance that they are doing and not removing the blade. I rarely go on the blade but i'd still be sad to see it go because right now the park does feel pretty empty especially with Ripsaw gone aswell. I also hope that they add something better to Ripsaws area instead o...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

I'm thinking of buying a Merlin annual pass for the 2017 season is the premium any better then the standard? I can't see that much difference with them except for prices and certain date restrictions so i'm not sure if premium is worth it?

Re: End Of Season Review 2016

Despite some of the rides being closed and the removal of The Flume i think this season has been great, especially because The Smiler has reopened and we can all get corrected again. My favorite moments of this season were, visiting Alton to ride my most Favorite roller coaster and having a laugh wi...

Re: Fireworks

From what i have heard from the event i'm kind of glad i didn't visit as well. I do kind of feel sorry for the staff members that had to deal with the abuse they received on Facebook though.

Re: Scarefest

Scarefest was great yesterday! i enjoyed dressing up with my friend who was Th13teen although he did get recognized as a tree throughout the park... We didn't spot any travelers either so that was a big relief. I think the best part of the day was when one of The Smiler staff hugged me because of my...

Re: Scarefest

The travelling community are out in force tonight! Park wrecked with polysterene balls over the paths. EVERYWHERE. Heavy police turnout as well. I've read posts on twitter about fighting in the Galactica queue line as well and a few people have left the park unhappy. I hope that tomorrow the park h...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

When booking tickets for the scare mazes it says on the page "Your items will be available for collection at the attraction on the day of your visit." Does this mean you can't print them off at home?

Re: As an Alton Towers fanboy/fangirl, what comments hurt yo

I was at a wedding last weekend and got the chance to catch up with some relatives who i don't see very often. One of my relatives asked me if i still visit Alton Towers and of course i said yes, then came the unnecessary comment about The Smiler (probably because of the recent news about the ride s...
