Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Does anyone know exactly where the bike racks are for cycling? The website just says "close to the entrance" but I can't see any on street view

Re: Duel - General Discussion

Are you allowed to film on Duel, been seeing a lot of people doing so and just wanted to make sure for my next visit.

Does anyone have Galactica's full soundtrack, or at least the in the hall of the mountain king part of the soundtrack.

Re: The chained oak

I’m heading to the towers next Thursday and need to go to see the chained oak for my media coursework. Does anybody know how to get to it and where to park etc? Going up the hill to the entrance to the park from the Alton village, you'll pass the chained oak b&b. Next to the B&B is a path w...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

That new boat does look quite good, however, if it were to be implemented, it probably wouldn't be until next season.

In other news, Towers finally announced the air date for that Channel 4 documentary in this tweet. It'll air at 9pm on the 23rd and is called "Inside Alton Towers".

Re: Alton Towers Waterpark

It seems like an accident has happened at the Waterpark in the last hour, according to tweets by Towers Expert and Ministry of Joy. Apparently ambulances, police, and fire engines are on site. Anyone know what's happened? I hope anyone involved is ok.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

They have added new stuff to the  online shop  like the numbered Wicker Man wood and the sculpture, the 2018 pins have been added, but not the newer ones that were just released. Also, the numbered Wicker Man wood seems like a cash grab, as they cost £50 instead of the normal £25 ones, the only diff...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

This talk with the Rapids must be something quite recent, when I went on a weekday the other week the staff were filling the boats at full capacity. It is interesting that they’re not filling boats up recently.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

The order I would go with is:
-Wicker Man
-Walk up to Smiler, Oblivion and Spinball
-Go to Hex, then TH13TEEN and Rita
-Then catch the skyride to Nemesis and Galactica, then walk down to Mutiny Bay, doing Duel, Rapids, and Runaway Minetrain on the way
-Then you might have time to do Wicker Man again

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Going to Towers next week, is filming allowed in Wicker Man's pre-show and station, say with a mobile phone?

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Does anyone know when the towers close? I've never been in them (apart from Hex) and I would love to walk around them before they close for Scarefest.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I would personally advice you don't use an expensive looking bag, because that might attract potential thieves.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I'll be going to Towers for the first time this year soon and I want to know if Wicker Man has a free flow station, or is there someone telling you where to sit? If so, is there a front row queue line?

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Alton Towers tweeted this out, confirming the official opening is this Saturday, and that there will be an opening ceremony. It also has a slight new teaser.

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

That's where the confusion is, it says near Mutiny Bay, not in it. It's just it's own area.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

ITV news are just saying "halt", doesn't mean it is definite, especially since Towers haven't actually confirmed anything. But as saw-x-smile says, no point in risking it, even if there is no snow, the ride can't operate in those temps.

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

The 2018 park map has been shown by TowersTLC, Wickerman looks fantastic. However, no indication as to what area Wicker Man is in, as it looks like they labelled the map by category, and not area. Therefore Wicker Man is labelled under thrills. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DYWbLljWkAATZ6Q.jpg
