Re: Ride pin badges

I'm there Friday and Saturday this week. So fingers crossed they get some more in.

Re: Ride pin badges

I sure hope so. This is the problem with social media. People giving misleading info.

Re: Ride pin badges

So a scarefest 2017 badge has been released and already sold out by 5pm this Saturday according to the public on Facebook. One person claimed they were told there would be no more stock until fireworks? What is the point in that and of it's true I'll be disappointed very much.

Re: Scarefest

I think it's great they try new ideas. For me personally this will be my 10th scarefest and our first year staying in the lodges. Would be nice to see more Halloween "Goings on" back at the hotels. The enchanted village could do a ghost stories around a fire kinda thing, bring more of a sp...

Re: Scarefest

Sorry if I've missed this, but is The Welcoming free of charge? Considering its part of the marketing for SW8, I'd make it free entry to get more people inside.... No, The Welcoming is not free of charge unfortunately.  It's currently £8 on the Alton Towers website. On another note... Does everyone...

Re: Parent & Toddler Ticket - Without A Toddler?

I am thinking of coming to Cbeebies Land with my 4 year old. Is it possible to buy a Parent and Toddler ticket and pay an extra £5 for a child between 3-5. I would then effectively have a ticket for an adult, under 3 year old and 3-5 year old but just wouldnt use the 'free' toddler ticket? Would wo...

Re: Scarefest

Just wondering if anyone else can help me on this. I've noticed when booking the scaremaze tickets. It stipulates you must complete all three mazes within two hours. In the past it has always been 45 minutes hasn't it? Just wondering whether this is a error or whether they've done this so people don...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Also, does anyone know whether you still get the email weeks before youre arrival from the hotel team? Always used to be a sue Robinson. Giving you details of y...

Re: Scarefest

Hey peeps, just wondering if anyone has heard along the grape vine what the hotel entertainment will be this scarefest? I can honestly say I didn't enjoy last years. I think they were a complete downgrade from previous years with the whole band. I wondered if Alton did get bad feedback from that as ...

Re: 2015 Scarefest

Does anyone know whether you can book scare maze tickets by calling them, it's just we have a group of 10 going but only 7 are doing all three mazes with 2 only doing ToTT and can't seem to book just one maze online? Also I've seen at the moment you can get a free ToTT ticket with bookings for 10 or...

Re: 2015 Scarefest

Do you think they'll give any more information on "Hooded" and "Touching" will entail? I'm curious as to whether you'll still be in a line and hooded, surely it's got to be all on one level, but we all know the towers is steps here there and everywhere. Just makes me feel nervous...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I was down on Monday and Tuesday and I noticed something in the towers shop, where the smiler merch used to be there's the air merch. Its all 50% off which has got me thinking, its 3 months till end of season, do you think they are selling g off the air merch to then fill it with the smiler merch w...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I can understand about the actual theme, but if you visit those pages you will be faced with images off the ride. In my opinion it just feels like a angry mob is already on its way to Alton with pitch forks. Don't get me wrong I love the internet, but makes me wonder how much calmer the public would...

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

Just out of curiousity, what benefit is it to remove all smiler pictures ect? If they remove all things related to the ride they are only giving the impression it's a dirty little secret when it's not. I feel terrible about what's happened and it really is tragic, I hope the injured make a speedy re...

Re: 2014 Scarefest

Hmmm I have to disagree, I understand they are trying to make it more family orientated, but it's not the "kids" begging to go to scarefest really is it? I'm sure they're more than happy to sit at the local park eating candy or whatever. It's the adults who are working hard "well most...

Re: 2014 Scarefest

Snow White and the flesh eating dwarfs? As for the scary tales, I just worry that it won't be as "hands on as such" mazes are, they are more of a walk through rather than interactive, last year we went through zombie scare zone and not one single actor approached our group they just went f...
