Anyone think Thirteen is one of the worst rides in the park?

Re: SW9

Do you think that whatever plans they had for SW9 will be pushed back due to the Coronavirus or will they still go ahead as planned (which ever year they decided)?

Re: The Future of RITA..

What's interesting is that if it were an Intamin Blitz.. it wouldn't necessarily be the same model as 'Taron' for example.. as that is the older model of the coaster I believe. (Check that). Not that there is anything wrong with Intamin's new model.. It would be interesting to see Towers invest in ...

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
