Re: Waterpark: General Discussion 2012

R.I.P Quenchers It would appear that Quenchers will be leaving the Waterpark and is being replaced by: The Original Sandwich Company. It is not a simple rebrand either, from what I understood from the kind gentleman who explained it to me, it is quite an extensive refurbishment.  The main Water...

Re: AT Waterpark Improvements

A few more improvements have happened in old Cariba. Flooring on Lagoona bay, a new anti slip dark blue section has been laid down and looks superb, in addition to this they have added new covers for the little fountains that run across this area. Over on Rush and Rampage, the take offs have receive...

Re: Alton Towers Waterpark - Refurb 2012

I don't think routine maintanence and cleaning warrants a price hike, especially as they've added nothing since 2003. Also in place is a new queue system for the master blaster. What does this mean, could you go into detail? What on earth is a "new queue system"?  :? The idea is to m...

Re: Alton Towers Waterpark - Refurb 2012

Hey guys, just to let you know: The lockers are the same as they have always been but have had new locks fitted. With these locks (as is explained on many many signs around the place so people will understand the new system) you insert your first pound coin, then second, shut the door turn your key ...

Re: AT Waterpark Improvements

Rather than starting a new topic, as this is still waiting internal consent before being submitted to the planning office. Plans for 4 slides coming from a central tower have been sent to Merlin by the Waterpark to be added in an extended area outside. This isn't the first time that this has been at...

Re: Black Hole tent

The form was a PNA 96, Teror of the Towers had one on the right as you entered the conservatory. It has the name of the attraction on it and what it will feature and for how long. Hope this helps!

Re: Duel ride photo mystery

I believe that Picsolve have a way to turn off the system that adds the scores to the photos. I can't quite remember the reason for this (I think the computer messes up sync or something) probably better asking one of the others but it is something I was discussing with a chap who was on Air photos ...

Re: We couldn't quite explain it - we'd always just gone there?

Hey Verfum, Glad to see someone else who loves to have a good ol' look at what's in the gardens. Nice find with the bottle! I can half confirm that that is Cuckoo Arbor, I say half confirm as when I stumbled across it a few years back I enquired on here as to what it was, and thanks to some of the m...

Re: Henry orignal sketches ?

Hi fFangeo,

Your best bet is to use something like http://photobucket.com/ to get the pictures online, from there copy the link with image tags on it and paste it onto here. :D

This sounds like a really interesting collection, can't wait to see it!

Re: Fastrack, Website, ERT & Brochures 2011

I love the design of the site, best they've had in a long time...if not ever! However, whilst browsing the themed rooms page, I found some quite bad spelling mistakes! I would have thought that the site would have had important areas like that proof read, its not very professional. Apparently the sp...

Re: Shrek attraction for 2011?

I see no confirmation of Shrek, though? Although, I am expecting the theme to be Shrek now, anyway. It would just be nice to see the whole thing confirmed. Out of interest... Why is the photo so poor? Where is the source from? Sadly I don't have confirmation as such about the theme ( a friend of mi...
