Every year we go to AT and stay in the hotel for 3 nights, last few times we have stayed in Splash Landings but I prefer Alton Towers hotel. The children love Splash Landings and I have to admit we have a blast there as well. I do agree with others though that the food is very expensive but that wou...

Well i have to disagree, it is a family ride and the younger shorter kids love it, to them it feels like they are on a big coaster, i also like it, goes fast and spins, does the job for me. Ok so it dosent touch nemesis but hey not every ride can do that! i think the themeing is ok. Chessington's on...

If everyone who had a dream didnt go for it as it wasnt realistic then where would the world be?? Ok so OWNING a theme park may be out of the question but what about working your way up to the managment side? It would be a lot of hard work starting from the bottom and working your way up (i did the ...

it is a indoor rapid ride, and it tours around a fizzy drink facotry. LOL i wouldnt quite go as far as a rapid ride! It is like toyland tours at AT but with a pop factory theme. It is a classic but that is about as far as it goes, the kids like it and it is some where to go to get out of the rain! ...

Isnt that funny, i dont remember the TL being that close to the monorail! I always remembered it being further over like where Blade is! Is it really as fast as Rita when it launches? I always loved sitting up front as it felt like you would come off the end of the track!

I have seen it before but just watched it again (it's fab) is the man's voice at the begining of the ride supposed to sound like Murry Walker or is it just the way it comes out?!
