I visited yesterday for the last time this season with 11 other friends and it was fantastic, we all had a blast. Come 6pm it was bloody cold but it didn't dampen our spirits, after a couple of tea's from FV McDonald's we were ready to go. We rode nemesis and air in the dark before trekking down hau...

Haven't visited the park this season simply due to lack of motivation, but this spurred me on to visit. I was on park on sunday and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The haunted hollow with the 4 actors was brilliant and TOTT was fantastic also. The park had a buzzing atmosphere and was deserted later on in ...

People saying 'something needs to be done' annoy me as ALOT is being done! How do you think they stopped the car bomb going off in London, they didn't just stumble across it then decide to put the country on critical! There are SO many top secret investigations, arrests, intelligence gathering happe...

In the construction industry plans are ALWAYS withdrawn and resubmitted, often numerous times before both the concil and application party come to an agreement!

A bridge over the launch is a massive H&S risk and wouldn't be allowed, but I like the rest of your idea!

The nice chap I spoke to outside the shop today was confident that it would open this weekend. Lots of cameras everywhere, it's going to be an exciting and billiant investment for the park.

Well, I'd be surprised if anything happens in that tent for a few seasons, nevermind next season!!! There are so many possibilities, I presume the management team are looking at all the possibles. They will certainly keep the tent as this will save planning permission and hasle from locals. There is...

Cheers for the big update Phil.

I am unsure about this new games unit. I do think if it is well themed it will be brilliant and shouldn't block much of the theming on RMT. I agree with the comment above however about it narrowing an already cramped area. We shall see.

Everyone is entitled to their beliefs, but this is nothing more the pseudo-science posing as fact. I've spent hundreds of hours in Hex, at all times of day and night, including all night shifts during the construction of the attraction, and have never heard so much as a peep. It is simply a cold da...

I think a doctors note would be sufficent along with a contact number. Certainly worth ringing customer services before your arrival though. I would also let your school know your intentions, as AT may contact the lead name on the booking which will be one of your teachers. Obivously AT have to foll...

A very interesting read as it's always nice to hear opinions of the general public. WE all know that if you go on a firework night you can expect to have a low ride count but the general public don't. I'm sure if the author went on any day other than the fireworks nights, he/she would have a brillia...

Well, it's safe to say that there will be no 'major' attractions in 2008 as tby this time in the season we usually know what we are getting. Well, not always know, but are aware that something is coming. So what will we see in 2008? My bet is another off-season of improving things and nice small add...

Name a manufacture of Flat Rides that doesn't have problems! Huss aren't brilliant, look at Ripsaw, Mondial seem to have good ish rides, but they have loads of downtime, ie: Samurai. Fabbri could be the best manufacture out there but their rides don't seem to fit Alton. Chance Morgan, well, i need ...
