Re: Pie + Mash

It's a shame the food outlets don't stay open longer after ride close.

Oblivion on-ride photo

Noticed today that as well as the photo taken on the drop, oblivion also flashes and takes photos just before hitting the brake run.

Went today and found submission fine. nothing amazing.

I know Gold Panning does have an extra price, no idea on how much or if there is a prize though. I think I still have an old Legoland Windsor medal around myself somewhere :lol:

Is it worth riding anyway?

^ Erh i think you have gone wrong somewhere. The 32A goes to the train station and how do I know this? because i use the 32 and 32a every other day for the last 2 years.


How much does an under 16 return cost on the 32/32a? What times does it leave?

Thanks to everyone for their help

A few questions about travelling to the park and trip dates

Hi. I used to post on here a fair amount but haven't really posted, or kept up to date with anything to do with the park, for a few years. I'll be going to Alton Towers this Friday, the 19th. It's my first time going via public transport. My current plan is to arrive at Uttoxeter train station just ...

I'd be dissapointed if Traumatizer was moved to BPB, its good but not exactly amazing and its not like its anything new, just a new place to put it!

is the electric towers thing forn halloween or fireworks night?

if its a decent sized maze with lots of cool stuff (sound, light, water, smoke effects etc) its should be very good. I would be dissapointed if its just a small maze with the odd pumpkin and vampire painted on the wall.

The wave surfer might be classified as a thrill ride, but I dont think anything at legoland (windsor at least) can be classed as a thrill ride.

dont get me wrong for its age group its a great park i used to love it when i was little but now its mainly boring
