Re: Florida Help Please

Went with Travel city last year, no problems at all. We got our tickets from American attractions.com as it worked out cheaper.

Re: Ticket Prices To Rise for 2014

For the past few years I have only gone on The Sun's free ticket and as long as they're offering that I won't pay. Yes it means I only go once a year but I'm happy with that.

Re: People smoking outside of designated areas.

There was so much smoking in the queues yesterday, really not nice to stand behind smokers when you don't somke yourself. If they dont have CCTV in the queues, maybe they should.

Re: 2013 Scarefest

I do feel that scarefest hasn't been the same since they stopped using Duel with actors and the haunted Hallow. I remember in the late 90's there was a stage area built by the haunted house and they had entertainment on after it got dark. I agree about Duel, this was my first scarefest for 2 years ...

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

Yesterday whilst queuing for Thirteen I overheard a couple telling another couple that TOTT was free but all the other Scarefest event had to be paid for. Made me laugh as they were really confident with their information. They also told them they had been on them as well which confused me as to how...

Re: The Smiler

Such a fun coaster, I'm not a fan of going upside down but this didn't feel as bad as other rollercoasters. The cars look really good going round the track.

I really enjoyed it after expecting a head banger, which this isn't. Would have gone on again but the long queues all day put me off.

Re: CBeebies Land 2014 - General Discussion

My nephews going to be 4 soon, so looks like next year will be the perfect time to take him for his first Alton trip. My sister was going to wait a few more years, but with Cbeebies in a few more years he will have out grown it.

Im looking forward to see what shows they choose for this.

Re: Chessington 2013, Zufari discussion

It looks an ok ride, itll be a hit with kids which is what Chessingtons all about. Be good to see it after a year or two once the landscapes grown in a bit more.
