Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

To be honest the lifts probably feel worse on Smiler as both of them are not working as intended. With most gerst's the train stops at the bottom of the lift and the chain speeds up to get the catch car in place before slowing down so it gently connects with the train and then speeding back up to t...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I do find sometimes near the back especially on the 2nd half that it feels like my seat shakes a bit. Although I am sure everything is 100% safe, it is indeed different to any other kind of roughness I have felt before.

It’s a little sad that they know these complaints are people telling the truth.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

The Smiler was my favourite ride, however it's upkeep, infrastructure change with the baggage hold and fastrack queues and SRQ etc has just made it less enjoyable. If the overall experience of the ride was improved, back to how it looked in 2013, then it would be on par with Wicker Man. I love the r...

Am I right in thinking this offer does not include 40% off? When checking without using the link to the deal the pricing structure remains the same.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

Given that it is an add on attraction, could take an hour out of your day, I think the majority of the general public will ignore it and go on free attractions. Personally I am not a fan, but I hope this is not an addition that will be a failure like Galactica.

Adding on to what Morgan says I have a feeling nothing will change - I feel as if they have given up so they will just leave it as it is.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

I understand this is an investment and will be a filler in CBeebies Land, however given that Dungeons could be an upcharge, I am not sure what to get excited for in 2019.

Re: Oblivion - General Discussion

It has an amazing but I don't appreciate waiting longer on the break run than in the queue. They need to utilize two station operation more on peak days.

Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

I agree this ride is great, however I have been on it much less this season given that the single rider queue has gone and the baggage hold is now a big faff.
