Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

Went on it Sunday towards the end of the day (3.45ish) and queued for an hour to get on it. 2 trains were running but it did stop for about 15-20minutes as we were queuing but they never announce it was closed, so we just stuck it out in the queue and luckily it started operating again!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Weather don't look too bad for Wednesday, 30% chance of light rain which might put people off going. Just make sure you are dressed for the weather and remember the weather is a forecast and not a promise.  Fast track might work better on the school trip days as oppose to the weekend and holidays, ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

The kids will still be at school on the 15th July, however you will have hit the prime School trip season which will be busier than the summer holidays.  I personally would avoid. If you are talking about the 15th August, then it will be busy but will be better than the prime school trip season. Pe...

Re: Wicker Man Area Speculation and Discussion

i don't think any area will be re-themed, we've seen with the park recently that not many of their new rides fit in the surrounding areas (AIR,Thirteen) The smiler being the odd one out that does fit in but even still a different actual theme to the rest of the x-sector

Re: SW8 Area Speculation and Discussion

AT have been weird with the themes of some new rides

The Smiler is the only one that really took on the theme of the rest of that area 

SW8 in no way fits with Katagna canyon or mutiny bay

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

me personally, it's exactly like air/galactica in FV,doesn't fit in at all with the rest of FV and is just it's own theme

Can't see SW8 being part of GW,KC or MB
