Re: Alton Towers Resort - Music and Videos

I don't suppose anyone has a video or audio clip of the announcement made around Nemesis warning people not to bring phones onto the ride? Thank you :)

Re: What did you ride on your first visit?

I can't remember what year but first ride was the Corkscrew all I remember it as very painful on my head! I loved the Ug Swinger's, miss the Flume and the Blade though :(

Hi all!
Did any of the skyride stations ever have a green and yellow roof (circa around late 80s)?

Hiya, I can't find anything on any site, the closest that looks that was the old Cloud Cuckoo Land station before it burnt down, it had green and yellow wooden decorations along the roof.

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

Could it be an issue with the system that sprays the mist on the ride?  I didn't think of that, I looked at my day photo's then my night photo's and yes there was no mist inside. Thank you :) Hiya, just asking a quick question it's probably very obvious, I was at Scarefest and was watching the Wick...

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

Hiya, just asking a quick question it's probably very obvious, I was at Scarefest and was watching the Wicker Man at night and noticed inside the head there is water sprayed out when a car has gone through just wondering if it is water and why? All I can think is heat from the cars on the track but ...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

I'd say it's a bit of a mixed bag. Sub Species and The Welcoming were running very well, 42 wasn't at it's best (although I'd say that was more to do with a painfully slow group), and unfortunately we had one of the worst runs of Mine Tours (we were in the very first group and it was clear that the...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

With that being the first day of Scarefest (which is 10:00-21:00), the park will be decently busy, but you'll still manage to see everything you want to see. With regards to mazes- the earlier slots are a good choice if you want to get them done quickly. I believe the longest we queued was about 10...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

I always got confused with the red river as I always assumed the water was self contained so never flowed back to a natural water but doing that could solve a lot of issues. Correct me if I'm wrong or talking rubbish! Lol I suspect they thought the same when they dyed the water red. Sadly, water ha...
