Re: Smoking at Alton Towers

Like I say. All staff are asked to enforce it. But most don't. Only in extreme circumstances, people would be asked to leave the resort. And I know of occasions where it has happened. This might be the case at the hotels, where people can be told where that certain smoking area is. But on the park,...

Re: Queue policy for disabled guests

Re: Queue policy for disabled guests

Here's one too shake up them books: Guests who are liable to experience violent tendancies may not ride most of the rides for health and safety reasons. (Which is anything from being stuck in/on a ride to evacuations from a ride that can put themselves and others in danger). Therefore how does a Rid...

Re: Rita Restraints

My idea is that Intamin are no where near the level of expertise that B&M are :tongue: so spend longer with seats down than the likes of the almighty Oblivion. Spinball whizzer is a certain type of Maurer Sohne ride that is affected by wet weather. And due to the health and safety implications s...

Fantastical Escapism to get you out of the worry of day life. This is a perfect thing for them to do that helps us too forget about what we do in our everday life :?. Ah well, no big deal me thinks.

The way that i figured it out was a 65 foot lift hill and that brings the upper conveyor level at around 90 foot above ground, (You need to take into account the different land levels all around the area.) When the shuttle reaches the drop conveyor it is around 95 foot above normal land level then t...

I'v heard that there trying too trace up a missing moustache for some German UNT. So far they say it was last seen in Paris? It can be difficult but they must do these things one at a time especially with tashes.
