Re: The Fried Chicken Co.

Visited here today and found the food a lot better than I expected. Ordered a Chicken burger meal which was delicious, experienced friendly staff and all round tidiness in the area. However, there wasn't a large range of options to choose from and as far as I'm aware you could only order a standard ...

Re: Crocky Trail, 7th May

Such a shame I hadn't seen this topic before hand, this place is arms length from my house! I hope by "change of injury" you mean, injury inevitable! I came out of the place with 2 deep cuts last summer which have left me with some lovely scars :P The place is so fun though, and I wouldn't...

Re: Gypsy Weekend

Thirdly, I did see the entire series of "My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings" and I wouldn't call it a "documentary", as you have. The title clearly marks it out as a piece of entertainment, and I wouldn't be surprised if the producers had purposefully edited it to only include the most s...

Re: What makes Alton tick?

The sheer sense of escapism you feel there, maybe not so much now but when I was younger. I hadn't really properly enjoyed a themepark until 2005/2006 and just before my visit I joined TTF! I think, its the fact that when you are at Alton Towers, everything sums up what you could suggest isn't reali...

Re: Gypsy Weekend

Well my day was interesting! I did see a lot of them, mostly after 1/2pm but they weren't aggressive towards us or didn't even acknowledge us tbh, which is good! They obviously didn't understand the concept of queing however.. as some tried to run past the staff at the fast track entrances and were ...

It is potentially my only 2011 visit yes :( However, I can't postpone due to it being the only day this holiday I can attend before my exams finish. I surely can't take my phone and money onto a ride though, unless I find some clothes with zip pockets! Though, thankyou for the advice - considering I...

Gypsy Weekend

After being told that this is occurring on Sunday, the day I'm visiting AT, apparently travellers tend to congregate in Alton Towers, cause havoc, fight, steal etc.
So I'm slightly (extremely) worried! Has anyone had experience of this said event at AT?

First Thorpe Park trip!

My boyfriend and I are travelling from Wallasey to Thorpe Park on the 2nd of October, the furthest I've been alone so it should be interesting! We plan to get the quarter to 7 train from Liverpool Lime Street to Staines, with 2 changes I believe. We will be staying at Staines Travelodge on the Satur...

Not so much a report, but a thankyou to all the staff there yesterday! Made my boyfriends and myself's visit possibly the best yet :) At one of its busy days, the staff worked extremely hard to keep everything under control. It was that busy our coach was parked in some sort of make-shift parking ar...

Re: TH13TEEN "Closure" Friday 13th

If the whole idea of these publicity stunts, is to attract attention from non-enthusiasts, I can't see how it is working. I have not personally found out about any of them, apart from when reading them on this forum. I also imagine they would want Th13teen open on Friday the 13th more than any other...

Re: Too scared to go on thrill rides?

I've taken 3 people so far, on their first roller coaster at Alton Towers all being Oblivion. All of them involved me dragging them by their wrists, one of them even took 3 of us :') I think just reassurance, and ask them the question "what exactly are you scared of?" If they start chicken...
