Also alton towers fill that bit of the car park up every day so they need it :? No they don't. I think you're thinking of the wrong car park. The one they're discussing is the one which was out of use for a lot of 2002/2003 when they were building Splash Landings.[/quote] No, no, no!, AT are not go...

Anyway part 2 as promised. I walked down towers street and it looked as if it had been placed in a time capsule for 10 years, it hadn't changed a bit except for signs saying Chocolate towers 10, coming soon! I walked down to notice the swans were back after loads of people on this forum had signed a...

Last time i went into X sector it was like stepping into a totally different part of the park. Blackhole was closed which felt very strange looking at how it is completely unchanged and all they have done is place a shutter over the entrance. now the whole area lacks atmosphere as you dont hear the ...

I arrived at the park gates with a very pleasing sight, there were several bulldozers lined up destroying the ropers former home. The road to the carpark was several lanes wider and now had carpark toll barriers like at disney and universal. I asked the attendant what was happening to the house of t...

I want to work at AT (or any other decent park) when i'm at uni in a few years time. do you get to choose which ride you work on cos i'd hate to continuously operate Bouncing Bugs, alone for days on end. The ride ops on the kiddy rides always look really bored and depressed and i can see why!

Rita would be cool as oblivion is a bit underated theese days if you ask me. Personally i'm not keen on the Roald Dahl idea cos we already have 2 suites themed after Beatrix potter books and we need a suite that is themed around one of the bigger rides to suit teens (like me) and young adults (18-35...

Probably 30 mins at the end of the day after the gate had been shut (everyone was just hopping over it). I only wait like 5 mins usually because i always ride it front row, early morning ERT, school time. I pick my towers visits really carefully so when i go the queues are hopefuly no more than 30 m...

Will rita end up top of the AT poll in 2006?

Something occured to me whilst I was on the Alton Towers website, Rita has always been at the top of the poll and i think this is because of it being the "new ride" do you think it still will in 3 years time providing no big attractions (Woodie springs to mind) are built. or do you think CATCF will ...

If the queues short on one of the big rides, when the ride op comes to check the OTSR's, have a screaming fit and tell everyone that the tracks broken and that theyre gonna die, just make sure no mental hospital doctors are around!

I think the only way for harnesses to pop up is for the hydraulic fluid to leak, thats probably not right either but its what happens on final destination 3. Though if that happened on a B&M th seatbelt would stop it going up completely. There again, the ride on FD3 is Vekoma so what the hell do yo ...
