Re: Ride Close Time

I was there yesterday too. I got dropped off however so getting in/out wasn't too bigger deal for me. However one thing that angered me during the day was the fact that the Info board near Katanga Canyon wasn't broken, but it just said "Welcome to Alton Towers" throughout the whole day, th...

Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion

I guess the confusion of the ride is that people think that the ride is uncomplete and that they are still working on it. Obviously as the scaffolding gets dirtier through the years it would look better, but I think if they ripped some of the sheeting it would help a lot and make it look more abando...

Re: HEX...

Went on the ride yesterday, everything seemed to work well and was an enjoyable ride, my friend was on for the first time and he enjoyed it. :) However we were in the waiting room before the screen room and some "chavs" came in and started being loud and noisy. One of them looked about 12 ...

Re: Duel: General Discussion

I went on Duel yesterday - and it really was looking terrible. I ended up in the haunted house for getting on for half an hour as the ride kept breaking down and many of the effects (including the camera) were not working. This really surprised me as when I usually go on, the ride is fine. The soun...

Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion

My friend went on it for the first time yesterday, I think he enjoyed it. He told me "I thought the first small drop was it but when the big one came I wasn't expecting it which made it good, also I had no idea you went backwards". So they were some good points that made the ride good for ...

Re: Most blatant queue jumping ever!

I had a funny experience yesterday. Two boys infront of us were in the Rita queue but there girlfriends were outside of the queue, so they decided to jump over the fence into the queue. But the they thought the queue was too long so they went and queued up for fastrack (without fastrack I assume) bu...

Re: Queueline entertainment

I think one good idea in the Nemesis queue (although I know that queue isn't as bad as others) is to put some strange alien thing in the distance that is close enough to catch the eye but it isn't clear what it is so people can try and figure out what it is, kind of like the big Alien rock on Nazi Z...

Re: Fastrack on sale at ride entrances

This is an annoying problem, it would be better if they used the Disney method, where you get one FREE fastrack but thats it. If you stand on the Nemesis bridge, only half of you go through then the other half are fastrack holders, this doesn't help the queue at all meaning more people buy fastrack ...

In some ways I wish I was older then so I could remember the change! :( I would have loved to have been old enough to remember when Nemesis was the only coaster in FV!

Re: The end of the season is just around the corner:

Highs: A good year I think for Alton Towers, nothing majorly bad has happened so far this year (touch wood) and although its not my personal favourite and it has had alot of criticism, I feel Th13rteen has overall been a success. Lows: Breaking my leg this spring, therefore only going to Alton Tower...

Re: If you could have any ride to yourself for 1 hour

For me it has to be Rita as the queue always seems to be long and on a normal day I would usually get only 1 or 2 rides in. So for that matter got to be Rita! :)

Re: John Wardley' Greatest Achievement

In his eyes I would've thought Air, as it took years to design and was technically challenging, however Nemesis has to be my favourite!
