Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

The Oblivion pin looks really good. 
By the by, how much are pins generally?

Re: On-Ride Breakdown Experiences

Well at Alton Towers I can't remember a ride ever actually breaking down while I've been on it. Most is just say a 5 minute stop at the end or in the station before the announcement of 'Do not take phones, cameras, or loose objects' on the ride is played and operations return. Did have to wait for a...

Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

For flat rides, would one of the Zamperla Disk'O style flat rides be something that could be installed? They seem quite popular and the ones I've ridden have been suited to families.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Can I ask, this seems like the right place, does anyone know any artists who have done work of the structure of the Wickerman? I did an art project based on the wicker man concept and for my related work I need to do an artist study based on an artist who's drawn similar things so I can show what I'...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I went to the park a few weeks ago, and my father who I went with was so appalled at the staggered opening times and the fact The Smiler was closed all day that he wrote a letter of complaint to the park. In a response email they sent us 2 free tickets to the park, and 2 solo fasttrack passes to all...

I was actually referring to times of the day, apologies for not being specific I'm at the park as we speak and would like to ride it while I'm here Ah, no worries :) It may get a little quieter as the day goes on, as the majority of people will head straight to it. You could always do the rest of t...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Is there any sort of time when Wicker Man is likely to be quietest?
It's currently on 120 mins queue at the moment and was wondering if its likely to get less

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

When I was at Scarefest, I went on the skyride. There was a woman who looked at SW8s construction site and then turned to her child and said "Oh look, that must be the new scare maze!"
Afterwards the child complained how scary and high up the next section of the skyride looked

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Has anyone figured out what the text says above the "be chosen" button? Following the fire theme and the name that alton towers have had trademarked with the logo i think i may have cracked the cipher.... On The Welcoming website? As far as I'm aware it says Feed The Flames and someone fi...

Re: Scarefest

Have you booked your mazes yet? If so, what time? Because that would affect the time I'd recommend you to arrive.  I believe I booked The Welcoming for 18:15 For The Welcoming I'd recommend you just turned up at your time slot, as queues don't really form to get your ticket scanned, so it won't aff...
