Re: Stealth

They were using a slightly adjusted soundtrack at the weekend, which seemed like parts of Fright Nights audio had been interlinked into the regular audio. On one launch the countdown had been replaced with the heartbeats, but went back to the regular countdown on other launches. One of the radio di...

Re: Rita - General Discussion

Rita is actually top 10 coaster for me, always enjoy the front row especially, if you ever get to the park for opening time i recommend going to rita first, itd usually when its quietest (thats if we dont have to deal with staggered openings of course!)

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Personally I would love them to revert it back to air. Keep the portal in some way, bring back the old music and I think itd be great! Doubt it would happen though :(

Make sure you aren't reading it wrong as you might have gotten mistaken with Charlie and Lola. I've just checked ridetimes and CATCF is not there.

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

Found this on Theme Parks UK’s website: Terror of the Towers  is not opening for  Scarefest  in 2018 – it’s receiving the love and care it needs to get back up to scratch and will return soon Does this mean that TOTT could return for next year?

Re: TT Summer Festival 2018 - Reviews and Feedback

Huge thanks to the team for organising this, probably the best day in a theme park I've ever had, being my first event I was pretty nervous having known no-one, but everyone there was so friendly and at no point did I feel uncomfortable. ERTs were fantastic, presentation was really interesting and t...

Re: Scarefest

The name "Project 42" reminds me of Experiment 10 at Thorpe Park. If it's anything similar to it then Towers may be on to a winner here!

Re: TowersTimes' Summer Festival - 4th August 2018 - Discussion

Looking to go to this, have any older teenagers attended in the past? (Im 16 and i feel like everyone will be a bit older than me) Usually at our events there is a real mix of ages so i'm sure you won't feel out of place. This event as a real sense of community about it so i'm sure that you will ma...

Re: Colossus

Colossus reopened today, had a ride on it and it didnt feel much different. However after coming off I saw a group of men trying to steal from the shop, whether the staff were intimidated or not, it's absolutely disgusting and Merlin aren't doing everything they can to keep staff and guests safe fro...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Reliability is god awful on WM now, i can understand that its a new coaster and there will be teething problems, but this is fairly basic technology compared to what there is now out there (flying coasters, 4d coasters etc.) I queued up in the fastrack line twice in the space of an hour, it broke do...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

In the car on the way back from a day at Towers; completely disappointed to be honest. Managed 5 rides in 6 hours, Wicker Man was down for probably 3 quarters of the day and the operations were awful. I was evacced from the station once then came back and they were sending trains with people on afte...

Re: Alton Towers 2019 Addition

A few flats are exactly what towers need at the moment - supporting rides that'll give people something today while all the coasters have massive queues, though i doubt they'd want to put them in because of marketing (i mean surely its pretty easy to promote a flat ride or two, but we all know merlin)
