Re: Should alton get a Tower of Terror style Ride

Hi there and welcome, I don't think that thirteen will be leaving soon as it is altons brand new ride and it supposedly cost £15 million. And in altons eyes thirteen will have been a success attracting more people than ever last year and for the GP who only visit once every couple of years; I believ...

Alton towers appearance on Central News

Not sure if anyone saw this tonight but I thought that it was really good, showing the park in it's closed season state but then showing you the rides testing. Thirteen was filmed with the train coming head on into the crypt with the lights on, he then went well that was a timid ride but then showin...

Re: February Half Term & Pre-season 2011

We was in the silver "cages" when oblivion broke down, a fully loaded train stopped halfway up the lift hill for around 5 minutes then when that got restarted they sent around, as mentioned, a couple of empty cars and then one of them stopped on the precipice and it was closed for the rest...

Re: Disabled policy change?

Just a thought for people abusing the disabled entrances, how would it work if someone had just gone to Alton towers in a wheelchair acting as though they had a valid reason for being in a wheelchair would they still be classed as "disabled" meaning they can use the disabled entrance?

Re: ToTT To Become A Permanent Attraction?

Okay, I will go with the view of most people saying I dont think it will happen nor do I want it to. But not sure if anyone can back me up on this but at fireworks there was a metal barrier across the tott queue line entrance with s green sheet but if you looked through it I could make out a van bei...

They make millions of pounds a year profits and they still have to get a little bit greedy! Well i will not be renewing, it's despicable! :evi...

Re: [SPOILERS] Scarefest discussion

Well we went on 16th and in COS at the start we just walked through the first room and it seemed a waste not to do anything, but on 29th we went and the woman at the entrance told us to wait in the first room and then a dummy climbs out of its booth and starts dancing in front of the mirror, really ...

My personal favourite quote is 0:30 on queue line 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRWGTWh5J3A& always a good one to tease friends who haven't been to towers before. :P

Re: [SPOILERS] Scarefest discussion

TOTT was very atmospheric, very creepy, very jumpy! But I was a bit miffed about the video that played at the start, it wasn't as good as last year's entry. At least you got a video :herrrm: i didn't actually think there was a video this year, i thought you just walked through but by reading your p...

Well last year I went the day after scarefest and the decorations were gone, not a sign of scarefest left, not a piece of straw. But I imagine it takes them longer to put them up.

Re: Scarefest: 16-31 October 2010

i am actually quite worried that we are going to have two mazes in one tent :hrrmph: But if Alton are promising that the Boiler House is going to be bigger and better this year then i cant see both mazes being in there as the brand new attraction wouldn't be small, as it has to live up to the legacy...
