Re: Alton Towers Resort - Food and Beverage

I'm really not sure what having ice cream at Pizza & Pasta really adds. The two machines seemed to require constant refilling and created quite long queues when I was there - which isn't ideal in a restaurant where so many people going backwards and forwards. The new ordering/paying system makes...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

My girlfriend and I are going on the 20th, however she's just fractured her wrist. Hopefully it will be a bit stronger in a couple of weeks but clearly it won't be 100% and it will be in a cast. Will she be OK in this year's mazes? I think she'll be OK, unless there is any need to crawl.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Staff training and technical upgrades were mentioned and Merlin's reaction to close rides and talk about procedural changes and training suggest human error was almost certainly the contributing factor. That sounds like Merlin's Senior Management pointing the finger at AT's Ride and Technical Staff...

Re: Alton Towers Live 2014: Speculation

Why on earth would they have exactly the same line up as a concert already taking place this year?!?! Because that is the company who did Alton Towers Live for them. It is basically a touring production, not specifically an Alton Towers event though some acts may change due to availability. Even th...

Re: Alton Towers Live 2014: Speculation

They might just be holding on for it all to be official or alternatively they may think the line up is too similar to last year's so possibly looking at something different. If it does happen the line up is likely to be Jessie J, Jason Derulo, Rizzle Kicks, The Saturdays, The Vamps, Katy B, Union J,...

Re: Alton Towers Live 2014: Speculation

Hopefully we should know soon - the line up for the last one was posted on here on 25th Feb last year.  Personally I would like something that doesn't just appeal to the teens but understand why AT go for that market.

Re: Going Alone?

I go alone alot and its great. One other question tho, would you go to the All you can eat pasta and pizza on your own? I really like the food there, but feel that place more than the rollercoasters is a social place to eat, so would feel awkward sitting eating on my own. Anyone done it? Been there...

Re: Going Alone?

I like going alone and also going as a group - both different experiences. Going alone I tend to just spend a couple of hours on the park - but make sure I cram a lot of rides in to that time. Hit the SRQs hard and have a good time. I often talk a little to the person who has drawn the short straw a...

Re: Will there be any more concerts at Alton Towers?

This is not just a issue for MAP holders as it affects all people who book tickets in advance. You do not need to follow Alton Towers to the extent you suggest to find out the change in offers and deals. Currently Alton Towers has 733,151 people who follow them on facebook. The 2-4-1 offers will hav...

Re: The Gardens?

Someone entering the theme park could have free access to the gardens through an entrance located in the park, and others just coming to see the gardens could pay a reasonable fee and enter through a separate entrance at least this idea would give the gardens the money and the love they deserve. :)...

Will there be any more concerts at Alton Towers?

I don’t think so. Well not many anyway. The reason is all down to this year’s policies. For many people the late offers and deals for both the Alton Towers Live and Black Eyed Peas concerts have left a sour taste in the mouth and I fear that Alton Towers have traded the long term sustainability of t...

Re: Ticket prices up again.

Why suddenly the outcry? I mentioned the discrepancies with the on the day prices depending on whether you use a 2-4-1 or whether you get the special on the day price on Alton's facebook page on Thursday and got dismissed for arguing over a few pence.

How many carers can you have to assist one disabled person? Minimum of 1, maximum of 3.[/quote] Are you sure? There was someone on the Merlin Annual Pass facebook page complaining that at Thorpe (and therefore I assume at Alton Towers as well) it has been reduced to one carer only. The disabled/acc...

Re: Thirteen CLOSED

Of course theme parks should introduce new rides, but look at it from the public's view. Most people could care less that Th13teen, Air and Oblivion were world firsts. The average person doesn't even know what a Psychoaster is - they just want rides to work, and expect it from a theme park with a g...
