Re: Quick Questions 2010

This might be a really silly question...and for this I apologise, But do you have to pay for single rider que? Also how quick are you likely to get on the ride? Oh and do all rides have single rider ques or is it just the bigger rides?

Re: Favourite Version of 'In the Hall of the Mountain King'?

Hey, anyone miss the old Towers Street theme? I used to love that song and I always hum it. It was such a great piece of music and it really went well with mood of the Towers.

Re: Favourite Version of 'In the Hall of the Mountain King'?

Never mind. Does an administrator need to close my thread? The thread finder thingy couldn't find anything similar and I had a quick search before hand but if you say so.

Re: Favourite Version of 'In the Hall of the Mountain King'?

I had never heard it before, either...so i think it might just be someone doing some random mixing...but it reminded me of the oblivion music when all that promo was about!

Re: Weight/size restrictions

Oh! that simple!? I thought it was a health and safety thing...why is there a height restriction on spinball? I did post on another size/weight restrictions here about how i struggled to get the restraint down on nemesis inferno and had to be moved onto the bigger seat, though i had no problems on a...

I even posted the same question on the alton towers facebook page and no one replied :( Thank you though, i shall t...

Re: Quick Questions 2010

Does Sonic and his buddies walk round all the time, or was it just for a special occasion type thing? My little man LOVES Sonic, be wicked if he could get a pic with him! :)
