Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Heading to Towers next Saturday from down South.  I've only recently been, so it's not hugely desperate we get on all the coasters, but would be nice to.  Wicker Man is my boy, so I am hoping for at the very least 2 rides on it.  What's the best plan of action for getting the big rides done on a wee...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Food and Beverage

Thanks Dan, that helps a lot. Pulled chicken sounds good too! The regular MAP group has really good up to date photo albums for CWOA and TP food, but sadly not an AT one.  I'll go check the Additional Needs one now :) Found it -You were right! Opposite Wickerman. Thanks Dan.  https://i.ibb.co/JFHrRH...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Food and Beverage

Morning all.  Off for my second trip to AT shortly. (First was only last month and I've caught the bug!) Anyway, I'm sure when I was there I saw a fast food place (in Mutiny Bay, perhaps?) that had some sort of Halloumi and veg wrap.  Does that ring a bell with anyone?  I'm also sure I've seen somew...

Reading the planning - Jumbos to be moved to the site of the original carousel. Much better!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Depends what you need to take with you. We have our 6 year old with us, so we need a bag for snacks etc for her, and I like to have water/merlin cup etc with me.  But I have zip up shorts/trouser pocket, so I keep my phone and cards/cash/car key on me on the rides. That way if the bag goes I'm not i...

Re: 30 before 30

You can't accept DBGT - but you could throw in Scorpion Express if you need to bump it up. 

if you got really desperate we often argue if Kobra is a coaster or not.....(I mean, it's not, but my daughter won't accept that, and I kind of see her point.....)

Re: Walt Disney World General Discussion

Saw that pricing on a Disney group yestreday.  Thing is - you can kind of excuse pricing that high (which it isn't) when you're on a huge ship that needs to be kept afloat and are visiting ports etc.  But to stay in one place in FL it's just pure greed.  I have no doubt it's going to require a lot o...

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

Morning everyone :)  Lifelong Theme Park geek, but new Merlin Pass holder, so having many more visits this season compared to others.  Have a 6 year old daughter so over summer so far we've had at least 1 visit per week to the southern parks (live in Surrey so all 3 are a short drive) and last week ...

Re: Cloud Cuckoo Land Replacement

The wall looks a little "Angry Birds" esque to me....

But I'm sure Merlin wouldn't do that again!
