Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

Could it be an issue with the system that sprays the mist on the ride?

On a similar vein to that, I once heard someone call Wickerman 'a crappy little coaster that doesn't even go upside down'

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Staff and Recruitment

What are the requirements regarding previous experience when it comes to acting for jobs such as in the Dungeons? Do they require you to have say drama GCSE, or attend an amateur dramatics kinda thing or can you apply without that?

'I heard The Smiler's top speed is 85mph!'
and
'Why doesn't all the stuff fall off when you go upside down in Hex?'

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

With the free tickets from The Sun, can they be upgraded to a season pass or can that only be done with a purchased ticket? Also can premium season passes be bought on the day?

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...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

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...
