Re: 2009 Prices & Merlin Annual Pass Increase (1st Jan 2009)

Depending on the renewal price I'd seriously consider just going for an AT only pass. This is the first time in years I have seriously thought about not renewing the Merlin (Tussards) pass, I mean nearly 100% price rise in a few years?!?! Come on, most people are seriosuly pressed for money in the c...

Re:

Even if Air is intense or not, the other versions such as Tatsu and Superman I've heard are very, very intense and Air set the margin to create them. After sampling Superman - The Ultimate Flight, I've got to say I now appreciate Air so, sooo much more than I did before! Because it is quite simply ...

Re: Alton Towers: New Year 2008/9

Are there any firm plans for NYE yet? I'd love to meet up with you guys, especially for the night / drinking session! :twisted: I'm booked in to splash with the other half for NYE only.

Re: Relief Road / Bypass: Alton Towers say no

Agree with most of what has been said above - dont see why the park should pay 100% of the bill. Has a 50/50 been proposed and AT turned that down too?

Re: When you were 1.4m tall

I've never had a problem with height - I've barely grown since I was in year 8/9 :cry: which was before my first ever towers visit.

Re: Annual Pass Purchase discount issues

I think it depends on who serves you which is pretty bad. At scarefest I had no issues using my AP for discount on everything (golf, drink in the hotels, CC, food on park and Flambo's etc). The only time anyone ever wrote the number down on the back of the pass was in the bars. Best be able to use t...

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Totally agree with that, I'd have thought a discount somewhere in the 50% region would be more reasonable for AP holders - same for the golf.

Re: Alton Towers: New Year 2008/9

The other half and I are now booked for NYE at Splash Landings - got AP discount with no bother.

As I've never been to a meet before it would be cool to meet up with you lot at some point :)

Re: New Years Eve 2008-2009

Are many people from here going to AT on NYE? Considering going with the g/f and would be cool to meet a few people.

Also, based on previous years experience, is it worth the money? Certainly a bit pricey for one night.

Re: Duel: Live

I found both my turns on this very dissapointing and underwhelming. The first ride there were only two actors in the ride area and huge areas of total darkness where so much more could have been done. The second turn I think there was only the one actor in the ride area which was dissapointing. On t...

Re: Boiler House

Deffo my favourite maze of the event - probably as it was all very new. Loved the atmosphere that was created, the really loud bass certainly helped with this I think. The end of it going through the really confined spaces was pretty damn good too. Certainly seemed like there were plenty of actors i...
