Re: Downtime 2015

i went today, i was told it hadn't been open all day, i was hanging around in the afternoon and nothing, staff kept coming and going and answering the phone near the entrance .

No trains were going round, no one on the track, nothing.

Re: Oblivion: The Black Hole - Gardaland - Opening 2015

So same price as 13 and £3 million less than the smiler, makes you wonder if something funny was going on with the prices for those two towers coasters.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Shocking move from Towers, 2 main rides opening late, its not on, just makes oblivion and the smiler busier, pathetic. I may just sell my pass voucher this year.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Makes you wonder how many folk do this, no wonder you cant find anywhere to sit in the hotels at night.

But then again, if they are spending money in the bars, why would Alton Towers mind.

Re: The Smiler over closed season 13/14

it looks like the overspill will be used every day, people who queue up before they open the main smiler entrance at 10 , early riders, get put in it, to keep the walkway nice and tidy
