If you were unable to get the pram through the turnstyle, reception (via the intercom) would send a hotel porter down to you to unlock the big gate :D

Re: Ghost Caught On Photo

Re: AT Waterpark Improvements

the ones on the left hand side pump out air. The rest only pump out water now and it hasn't been fixed. That is how they are supposed to be - the side nearest to bottom flash flood entrance are jet blowers and the other side are air blowers. However the ones around the middle island are switched of...

Re: AT Waterpark Improvements

Sorry that did seem a bit sharp! All of the cannons work as designed and all of the handles have been replaced and they have all worked for quite a few weeks now. As far as I know there are just 1 or 2 things with issues out of the 70 features on there, I just felt the comment was a little unfair wh...

Re: Wearing tops/vests at Cariba Creek

T shirts and tops are ok in the pools, BUT are NOT allowed down any of the slides. You will be asked to take it off at the top.
Hope this is helpful

Re: Geek friendly Towers facts

Did you know? None of the water features in the Alton Towers Gardens are powered by any kind of pump. They are all powered by gravity using the Valley to gain the power required! Did you know? There are a total of 18 large filters behind the scenes of the waterpark and the plant room itself is almos...

Re: 2009: Explorers Buffet Restaurant @ Katanga Canyon

The explorers buffet is amazing. The decor, the food and the atmosphere is fantastic.

It is far superior than pizza hut buffets as the food is much nicer and there is a wider selection.

Plus you get your drink included!.

Pizza, pasta, salad and drink for £6.95

What great value! :D
