Re: What does AT need?

Merlin need to buy some paint, lots and lots of paint. Good shout! My own conversational market research would suggest nearly everyone agrees that Alton Towers is looking a bit old and shabby now days. Anyway, What does AT need? A huge record breaking woody! The surrounding landscapes, especially a...

Re: Restraint Preference

Lapbars! They add so much more thrill.

The worst restraints are the ones on Submission and Ripsaw. The horrible restraints factor a huge percentage as to why I avoid these rides.

Re: Which rides do you have a love/hate relationship with?

Rita - Theres not much love, just hate! But I do quite like standing around the area while the coaster swooshes by above. Also I love the noise of the launch, the brake fins popping up and down and that noise of the magnetic brakes is to die for <3.

Re: Merlin Standard Annual Pass: Free Parking to end in 2011

Coaster enthusiasts are doing what they do best and forgetting that these parks do not exist to satisfy their hobby - they are a business and exist to make money and as much of it as possible. True to a point, but in order to make money you have to satisfy your customers and I don't know if you've ...

Re: Alton towers hotel should it be cheaper?

I voted 'too expensive'. The reason is, because, well, they are! They are quite swanky though :shock:! But not half as swanky or quirky as something like a village hotel, which is slightly cheaper. Ahh man, give me a village Hotel any day of the week over ATH or Splash. I tend to think Towerseseses ...

It'd be a waste to let it rot and die! Travelling or not, I'm glad it's still alive anyway and I'm sure with the...

Re: Alton Towers Or Thorpe Park?

Looking at this from a Joe Blogs point of view I tend to agree that Alton Towers is better. Its bigger, still has the classic Alton Towers magic and charm and tbh it's where the nations favourite coaster, Nemstacles, lives! BUUUT :shock: look at it from my point of view and I much prefer Thorpe Park...
