ERT is a bit poor at the moment isn't it?

When I went last season it was spinball, oblivion and the beastie, was pretty good to get oblivion in early, i suppose spinball and RMT will do 8)

I think something in its place similar to infusion at blackpool would be a nice move, but then the whole area may need a retheme ANOTHER SLC to be added to the world!?!? Why not something custom?

^ thats just harsh, like kaycee says it costs a lot to run it and after it just recovering from the fire, i can see why they wont want to put it on, especially when theres hardly any need to. and if theres an accident after it just recovering thats even more costs to cope with, so you should just c...

would it be best to get fast track tickets this sat? and wheres best to get them? The way you should judge it is how busy it is at the gates when you get there, if you don't visit very often its worth getting anyway just to enhance the experience....you can get them to the left of the entrance just...

I know that the skyride has only just opened due to the problems towards the end of last season, but I don't think it should be closed at all, even in off peak season, for the amount of cash the place generates, wages and cost shouldn't come into it really, can't imagine the skyride isn't the most e...

I might cause a bit of an argument here and I haven't really kept up to date with all this to be honest I can't see there being a problem in smoking in any area other than queue areas, food areas and ride areas...if you are smoking on a path between rides, then there is no harm done in my opinion, y...

Surely they would get some sort of compensation for being stranded for that long, if they were that is?

I'm always craving for a trip to Alton Towers and being so far away means I can only visit once or twice a season, really wish I was closer then it would be worthwhile buying an annual pass
