Re: The Future of Hex

I absolutely love Hex. Beautifully themed throughout with that eerie atmosphere.  My issue with it is the drum itself slips and it (only slightly) ruins the illusion. This is me being super super critical and 99.9% of guests really will notice notice nor care about it but having ridden this when it ...

Re: [email protected] Member Photos with John Wardley

Much appreciate the photo. Is there any chance of a high resolution version without the watermark to use as I prefer to add the copyright in my own way just underneath the photo on my own site. It will then allow it to for in with my other photos. The copyright will be there so please don't worry ab...

Re: Welcome to the new forums!

Could the max dimensions and max filesize be increased for avatars. In this day and age the restrictions set currently do not make sense. Especially with higher speeds and multiple devices. A bit of back end processing can create multiple versions and a few media queries can help dramatically. Vecto...

Re: Welcome to the new forums!

Is there no chance of Tapatalk functionality being reintroduced? The main benefits to most people that Tapatalk has is that is allows Towers Towers to be easily accessible next to other forums (of any topic) and can easily hop and back and forth within the app. The main benefit to myself is Tapatalk...

Are you kidding me? These photos are amazing and are of very high quality considering they were taken from high up!


Apologies, In size I meant. As the size shown on the forum are rather small. It's ok though, I found the larger versions.

Re: CBeebies Land 2014 - General Discussion

The station is staying where it is. If you look at the pictures you can see you will still get to the ride oppersite Sonic, however a large fence is being constructed to make it feel part of Cbeebies Land I didn't say would the station be moved, I stated that I hoped the queue would be rerouted so ...

Re: CBeebies Land 2014 - General Discussion

I hope the queue for the rethemed Squirrel Nutty Ride gets rerouted so the entrance is from within CBeebies Land. It would make the area all fit together and not require people to have to sort of leave the area to go on a ride that is meant to be a part of it. This would then allow Spinball to stand...

Re: Park Music and Videos

Are any of the audio tracks from inside the Sanctuary available at all?

Such as the Marmalising room and the maze section at the end?

Re: Wallace & Gromit Ride for Blackpool?

It is definitely the Gold mine being converted. When I went for a WOW weekend a few weeks ago. The ride op I spoke to said it will be open for a few more months and then will be closed. As for the closed period last year. He said, the ride was not broken or anything, merely closed so work behind the...

Hello, Jsut got back like nightsin2dreams. Had a great day. Really enjoyed walking the duel track and was very interesting to hear how complex the blaster system is and how every LED sensor is networked back to a main computer. The board room was rather interesting but they wouldn't let any of use b...
