Re: Quick Questions

Thanks for that Lee, instructions are spot on, they will be getting on at Prestatyn so can get that Holyhead train etc.. Many thanks Dave I don't know where you are in N. Wales, so I'm going to presume you are on the HolyHead line. - Get the train from a mainline N.Wales station (Holyhead, Bangor, L...

Re: Quick Questions

Hi All, not sure if this is the best place to ask this or not so please move if it should be else where. Basically been asked by a friend what the best way to get to Alton Towers is via public transport, they are travelling from North Wales, I'm guessing it's a train to a station near the Towers the...

Re: 2013 Scarefest

Totally agree, TOT is a fantastic scare maze, having been to halloween horror nights and busch gardens horror nights I still think TOT is the best maze I've been to, not having to do the conga with everyone else in the park is pretty much a good bonus :) It's been a rumour knocking about since the e...

Re: SPOILERS - 2012: Nemesis Sub-Terra...

That description sounds like it's building up to be what I was expecting from the ride, I think it's going to be a good addition to the park, one of those guilty pleasures of a ride that some people will find riding as a 1 off is enough, but others will always enjoy the re-ride and the fun of it, al...

Re: The Smiler - Speculation

Hi Guys, Just had a thought, didn't someone win a competition to be on the team that planned SW7 ? or something along those lines, I'm just thinking if this truly is what was intended to be SW7 then do we know who won the competition? or have they not been announced to a) keep it secret or b) this i...

Re: Early Ride Time

Hi Guys, I have posted this in quick questions but hoping you know the answer, is the £15 price on those days a special offer on the Website only? or is it that price on the gate too? If not do you know the gate price?
Cheers

Re: Scarefest: 16-31 October 2010

If you look on the mini-site at the Characters bio, it says Skelvin will be found in the Haunted House, so I guess that's possible confirmation for Duel: Live? The event looks spectacular this year but its a shame to see no duel or hex live this year, alton shows it does not need thorpe parks 5 maze...

Re: Halloween Horror Nights 19: Ripped from the Silver Screen

My girlfriend and I were over in Orlando for this event in 09, I must say the atmosphere around the part is (as Bill & Ted would say) Excellent! However I didn't find the houses half as scary as Alton Towers effort from this past year. Now I don't know if this was because I had it in my mind 'th...

Yeah was thinking of getting in advance, not sure about if buying the flexi tickets etc are cheaper here than getting from the places there, I seem to remember last time I went that the bloke said you're best off waiting and buying from a local agent, that was 5 years ago though so it's probably cha...
