Re: Laptop Advice

Thanks for the advice with those laptops.

I've used a Mac in the past for editing & really haven't been a fan of the OS used.

I've been looking into Sony Vaios. Does anyone have any Sony computers or laptops?



I'm looking at getting an E series? Good or not?

Re: The BBC (TV license)

I'd say the online services that the BBC offer are incredible.

Re: Radio 1

It was the request show, so they were taking requests from people on the park too. Went about between 4 and 7pm.

Re: How would you change the Alton Towers 'brand'?

Keep the pipes! I would use them to 'pump the magic' around the resort.


Alton Towers is a MAGICAL place. It just is! Regardless if it's 1990's - It sums up the Resort perfectly. Just bring it back.

Re: So, what job do you do?

I also promote my locatal commercial station Atlantic FM at events. And recently I have starte...

Re: New PR stunt: people swallowing insects on coasters.

Surely if you are getting fed up with seeing these 'PR Stunts', how about just ignore them? Get off TTF and do something else? Skim past them in the papers? If they are getting to you that much, maybe it's time you did something else? Right? I think they're great. Would love to see more of the knome...

Re: Alton Towers Comedy Evening - 10th September 2010

Guys - We want entertainment, this is entertainment.


What were you expecting? Alton Towers isn't the O2 or Wembley Stadium. Let's not slate this, this is clearly Alton Towers wanting to improve their entertainments & events.

Re: Runaway Mine Train: Rubbish Carts on show.

You used to be able to clearly see into the area behind duel, I remeber having a rant about it last year.

Took a walk along the route from the hotels to the entrance a few weeks back and there is a big wooden fence blocking all views!

That's taken from 'The Magic Factory' Documentary that the BBC filmed during the 1997 season. Been around for years.

Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion [SPOILERS TOPIC]

I don't recall a good roller coaster ever being good because of the track alone - It's an experience from the moment you enter the area in which it is in, to the second you leave. Judging an experience from a few moments of poor footage, is not a way to experience a ride. [-X (Naughting TTFers and ...

If we were to watch Oblivion without seeing anything of the pre-ride build up, you'd say, 'Was that it?' I'll reserve my judgement. & Themeing installments would have been delayed, the ride was only handed over Monday? I expect this ride is no way near complete. I can see it closing again for a ...
