Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

It's a real shame that Thirteen has had to close because of this and I hope that we will see it back in action for the future. In the meantime, I'm going to be watching the news, AT app and this website until it opens. Hopefully, by next April/May, it'll be up and running since my little sister (who...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

That's brilliant! Hopefully then I'll be able to start planning for our trip in 2021.

That's interesting and if anyone else knows the value I'll put them up on Ebay soon.

Re: Last ride you have been on

Last ride at Alton Towers: Galactica
Last ride at Chessington World of Adventures: Vampire
Last ride at Blackpool Pleasure Beach: Valhalla or Icon ( I can't remember to be honest)
Last ride at Oakwood: Megafobia

Save the best for last (in my opinion).

Just wanted to know if they're rare or any good. Would they be worth more than £10? I'm thinking of selling mine and that's around the price...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I can understand if they went for that much considering their collectibility and rarity. Can’t afford that at the moment though since I’m still saving for next years AT trip!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I'm so jealous of the people who got one of the Oblivion jackets! I need to see more! Looks like we'll be getting some more on Monday though. Did anyone see how much they sold for? It's so nice that they're selling them for charity especially in these difficult times.

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

I don't know about you, but I prefer the original logos as pin badges such as the Smiler face. They just feel a whole lot more recognisable and really stand out. To be honest, when I saw this year's Smiler pin badge I was a little underwhelmed since The Smiler didn't instantly come to the forefront ...

Re: The World of David Walliams - *Delayed until 2021*

It's quite terrible that they've had to postpone the opening but I kinda saw it coming since they obviously want the full popularity that this area and ride can bring. It'll probably draw people back in after the current crisis. Anyways, yet again Alton Towers has made my little sister even more exc...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

Thanks for the advice! Pretty happy with this purchase and I’m going to wait until some interesting pins come up for sale on eBay. Not so keen on many of the online shops pin badges though (sorry if you guys disagree) so I might wait until everything gets back to normal to get some (possibly next ye...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Thanks for the advice! We’re just looking at next year at the moment but really, we won’t get back to AT until everything’s pretty much back to normal. I believe that I’m going to be staying in the Smiler suite so I’m pretty sure I’m getting fastrack anyways. Thanks for the single rider queue tip th...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

https://thumbs.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/m4xCLjjcgpSjXNsa2yrQvFA.jpg Hi guys, I was just wondering whether this badge was worth the £3.00 I paid for it. I believe that this is the original Galactica Pin Badge from 2016 and I think it was limited edition. I might be wrong, but I'm new here and I have ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Hi guys, I'm no expert at rollercoasters, but I do love them! I'm going to Alton Towers next year and I'm wondering if Fastrack is worth it for the Smiler? I'm new to this forum and I just want to know what the average queue times are like in April-May time and if it's worth it to pay to skip the qu...

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

I just randomly decided to join this forum since I need somewhere to talk about rollercoasters. The people I live with are tired of me constantly going on about rollercoasters and theme parks. I'm also the only person in my family and friend group that actually likes riding rollercoasters. I've been...
