I was the same as quite a few people on here - heard ITHOTMK, turned round and saw sofas, thought it was a sofa advert, got annoyed they'd stolen it and turned back away. :lol: But I did glance back just to make sure and caught it just as the little boy peeks his head over the grass. The main point...

Yup, did go with school. And luckily, they'd been doing the Germany trip for years before I even came to my school including a visit to Europa so it didn't need any convincing. Although I didn't think I would be able to go as last year for some reason the trip wasn't held so I thought they'd just s...

Had an absolutely fantastic time, I really rate the park. I expected the theming to be great, but it really did blow me away. Most of the rides are quality - especially Silver Star obviously. Will upload pictures tomorrow. :D

Shocking and sad news, best thing to think is that it could have been a lot worse. Glad the fire's out now and doesn't seem to have affected that much of the park which is good. Tis a shame about the skyride though and it couldn't have come at a worse time of the season really. :(

Was there today with a few friends. Knackered now so am not gonna go into too much detail but had an absolutely MINT day (and a very scary one too). Am proud of how well I contained myself actually lol. :D

Didn't see TTF-ers though. :(

Woo! Only just read this, fantastic news.

All of these pieces are music are just mint and they really have an effect on the atmosphere around the ride areas especially Nemesis' with Forbidden Valley.

So excited to hear it again! :D

Oooh - TRRR is back?! FAB. Will bring the mint atmosphere back again, the music sums up Rita for me. The new stuff was ok, but nothing in comparison.

Good news! :D

Definitely would love for it to be bought back. It just sums up Alton Towers for me and always will do, whether it is still there or not. It's been associated with the park for so long and to get rid of such a well known tune is quite silly IMO. The new music is good, but compared to ITHOTMK it rea...

Personally, I'd love to experience Oblivion backwards - think it sounds pretty immense. :D

It could be uncomfortable though, especially hanging over the drop, there would have to be LOTS of padding and stuff.

Haha Spike, I like the idea of calling one side Oblivious, very clever!

Thank God! Only a couple of months of the season left and they're only just opening it, a major disappointment. Alton needed to work harder to get it open closer to the start of season, rather than the end.

My first time on Nemesis I was relatively not scared. I'd JUST been on my first 'big' rollercoaster - Air and had loved it. People in my group who had been on Nemesis before said it was just a 'scarier version of Air' (ha). So although I had nerves, as you do before riding any rollercoaster for the...

Gawd Dan, Florida and New York in one holiday - how lucky are you?! If only I was 16 now, I'd be well up for this trip. Am dying to go sooner or later, but due to my Mum's hatred for rollercoasters and the fact that she has no desire to visit America, it's looking to be at least 4 years before I do...
