I can understand not having any ride theming due to the cost involved - but why not use music which is free to use (Midnight Syndicate) and tell staff if they wish to dress up then they sort out their own costumes?

You'll want to go as soon as possible. As a general rule it will get more and more busy towards halloween / end of half term. I'd advise going the first weekend.

Re: Park Music and Videos

Thats not the Black Hole lift soundtrack, it's from a tv advert for DLP Space Mountain. It's never been played at Alton Towers.

Black Hole lift theme is similar but completely different (and more professional). I'll try and get hold of it but I'm not sure if I'll be able to.

I would assume the Trick or Treat doors will be the exactly the same/similar type of thing which has been at Chessington Halloween for years. I would say look on themeuk.net for details but the site seems to be closed. Basically it's 3 doors which children open, and behind is an actor where the chil...

Re: Park Music and Videos

Just wondering if people here have the Black Hole theme, as I have it and can probably upload if people wish?

I was also at Thorpe on Sunday (was near some TTF people when the park opened, my mate seemed to know the person who worked on Nemesis, I've no idea who that is, sorry :P) and agree with the comments. It amazes me how Thorpe falls to pieces during busy periods like this yet places like PortAventura ...

To be honest, I'm pretty sure the heigh barrier is ficitious. I'd say there is no set height limit, more that each application is judged on its own merits. For example this would be why Stealth is painted in unobtrusive white and has a minimalistic support strucutre. I'm sure they could go a lot hig...

This is such a non-story, and of course its a PR stunt... What I'd like to know is how BBC Radio Sheffield found out about this in the first place! And why do we care what Janice Broadhurst, 54, of Alvaston, has to say on this pressing matter?

The name of the project is Penzance; I think you would be jumping to conclusions to think its pirate themed (unless someone is hiding something). IMO the name of the project name doesn’t give much away. Well it does, because the article in The Source says "I'm sure you can guess the theme!&quo...

Do you know the name of the composer?

Has anyone managed to find/be told the name of the royalty free library that track comes from? Then we would probably be able to find an unrecorded preview online.

I had someone on my game yesterday calling me a racist because I wouldn't give them a prize, even though they didn't win.
In my opinion people who accuse staff of being racist for stupid things like that should be ejected from the park due to harassment.

That might be an official estimate date, but think how many of those have been given out since it was originally delayed back in April. :P

How come stopping rides to retrieve cameras is commonplace at Alton yet I've never seen this happen at Thorpe, and infact I remember ops giving permission for guests to take cameras (with straps) onto Colossus/Inferno. Personally I dont think they should take such a hard stance on the policy - the c...
