Re: Disneyland Resort Paris

You'll find most of the important story stuff will be in either language with subtitles for the other. Same goes for most shows across the resort also. There is very little French only stuff. If anything we found more in English when we went earlier this year.

Re: Drayton Manor

Looks like the new name for Ben 10 is Accelerator. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170312/7b09d9105d8c3d410b0a9ed0d32c713f.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170312/815937a3c9dda82e285a796b5175124d.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170312/05eb284ff321b55792ca5ce7fb4dfdf8.jpg

Weather Warning For Monday 28/10/13

From what I hear, if the winds turn out to actually happen the park will be closed for the day. Due to H&S issues with the numerous trees around the park.

2014 Family Developments: General Discussion

So, now summer is over. Preparations have already begun on this transformation.

Berry Bish Bash is now closed for the re-theme/expansion. I imagine the rest of the farmyard to follow shortly.

Re: Thorpe Park 2013 General Discussion

An exciting/interesting FREE fast trackish trial is currently taking place at Thorpe Park. It's called Reserve 'n' Ride. And basically acts as a free virtual queue. You register using a Smartphone (or at the ride entrance) and once the timer counts down, you can ride. Check out the details at: http:...

Re: 2013 Scarefest

Noticed yesterday that the monorail audio still states rides close at 9.00 throughout scarefest. Maybe worth mentioning when trying to get refunds.

Re: 2013 Scarefest

This is the first time in about 5 years that my annual family Scarefest trip is not happening. (Used to get a group of around 25 of us to go) But due to the lack of effort put in by Towers/Merlin and the lack of changes and constant budget cuts year on year, we are giving it a miss. I'm sure we won'...

On concert day, the park had upwards of 33k on. So it can get busier!

Alton Towers Live: Saturday 6th July 2013

Parking is going to be an organised chaos tomorrow. Every inch of spare ground will be used with many plans in place to get people off the resort ASAP after the concert. Obviously there will be delays and queues but hopefully it should go fairly smoothly.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I'm planning to have a cheeky first ride on this beast tomorrow morning. Hopefully the queues will be short enough to get a few goes before I have to leave the park around 12ish.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Just remember the same official twitter feed mentioned earlier today how management haven't told them anything about why the ride is actually closed... Unless they were lying of course.
