Re: Best and Worst Queue Lines At Alton

As above oblivion has a bad queue line, most of the time it's empty so the long walk is annoying and I find it always stinks.

Re: Ride you have queued up for the longest is?

The longest queue at alton towers was 3 hours for nemesis during scarefest and just short of 5 hours at Thorpe park for Saw as it kept breaking down, would of left the queue but as it was our first time at Thorpe park and we had travelled for 3 hours to get there we didn't want to leave without goin...

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

First time on today since it changed and I wont bother again. The whole ride from start to finish was a disappointment. I spent the whole ride trying to hold the headset in place, picture was flickering all over the place. I will go on again but I won't use the VR. My boyfriend thought it was ok but...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I'v just got tickets for 3rd May, so hopefully the queue times will be almost as they are now. If they are then it will be nice to go on a few times. Iv only ever been on it once and couldn't fully appreciate it as I was feeling sick from Enterprise :lol I can't say I am that interested in Galactica...

Re: On-Ride Breakdown Experiences

Thirteen_ first time on it and it stopped inside. Lights came on and a member of staff came out to let us know what was happening. We were only stuck for a minute or 2 but we were disappointed as being the first time on it and having it lit up ruined it for us. We were given the choice to stay seate...

Re: New Theme Park attraction(s) for 2016?

It would be great to see a new ride. This year although it was good to be able to get on all the rides over and over again it started to get a bit samey! Rita seems to be getting rougher and rougher as the years go on, I much prefer stealth. Apart from Air, Nemesis and Spinball I found that I got bo...

I dislike people like this... you need to read it! I'm kinda happy she won't be returning, the park can do without individuals like her creating unnecessary drama where it isn't needed. http://oi67.tinypic.com/33z9o35.jpg" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; http://oi67.tinypic.com/30k9bm...

Re: Where abouts do you like to sit on rides?

Nemesis: Front row always near the right. For some reason I seem to bang my head any further back than the 3rd row and it seems worse if I sit in nearer the left. Air: any seat, for some reason I just seem to get the giggles on this ride Oblivion: Front row in the middle Smiler: anywhere but the fro...

Re: At what age can you not handle thrill rides anymore?

I'm 30 and the rides seems to be taking their toll me on me lately. Did enterprise, spinball and the smiler all within 30 minutes last year, enterprise made me feel sick, spinball started the headache and by the time I come off the smiler I could no longer tolerate that non stop hahaha music blaring...

Ah yes the wasps! Sitting on oblivion for 10 minutes whilst they wait to see if anyone else comes to fill the train up and having 2 of the bloomin things buzzing round my face wasn't the most enjoyable part of the day :lol Must say Thorpe Park didn't seem to have a huge problem with them this year, ...

Re: 2015 Scarefest

After reading all your reviews on the mazes I really like the sound of them but I screamed all the way through saw the maze a few years ago with my eyes closed most of the time! I'm such a wimp I doubt I would last a few seconds without freaking out. I will just use my son being 11 as a good excuse ...

Only asking as we are considering taking our son after school on Friday but we won't know for sure until the day so I don't want to rock up and find out we can't and end up paying full price for the sake of a few hours.

I think oblivion should go. It never seems to have any queues and I can't say I find it very thrilling.

I was on colossus yesterday and wish I had gone on wearing a crash helmet. I hit my head to many times to count, so bad it left me with a pounding headache and dizzy all afternoon. It happened last time I went on but this time I could of cried with pain!
