Re: what is you best AT duck moments (cutest/funnyest thing you have seen them do)

A duck's beak isn't quite big enough for a mini cheddar. They know its food and they want to eat it but their beaks can't break them into smaller pieces either. They will kinda hold them in their beaks and shake their heads around in the hope that it will break the mini cheddar into smaller pieces. ...

Re: Legalisation/Decriminalisation of Cannabis

Although cannabis is proven to be ''non addictive'', that doesn't mean people can't become addicted to it. One of the big problems I have with cannabis is that, when smoked regularly by certain types of people, they come to rely on it as a lifestyle, they become addicted to it not physically, but me...

Re: What ride's freak you out?

I like being scared, i get a bigger kick out of things. There are only a handfull of rides that I get nervous for though. Drop towers of any size, including thirteen and sub terra (and to some extent oblivion). The ultimate one though is apocalypse at Drayton Manor. I like the feeling that a ride mi...

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

I've not introduced myself properly, i signed up a while back and made a few posts but then went silent.

I've been talking more recently thought.

Re: Oblivion

I like the idea of having a few backwards cars...To be honest, the oblivion queue line is already split ready. They could have a queue for if you want to face forwards and a queue for backwards facing. Who knows, one queue might make the other queue shorter, or split the wait time in half. It wouldn...

Re: Alternate/New backstorys for rides at Alton Towers

My idea for the dark forest... Thirteen has taken over Ug Land and encompased all of the rides, attractions and buildings in tree roots, trapping them there for eternity. Before too long the dark forces and the wraiths will become more powerful and their plan is to trap the guests there too! If only...

Re: Litterbugs

there is a difference between tidying and cleaning.

No one is ever employed to tidy, and it should not be expected from staff anywhere.

Everyone should pick up litter and not leave it behind...then the cleaners can actually spend their time actually cleaning.

In regards to buy one get one free and can they be used at scarefest... Two for one tickets this year have been quite hard to find, Tesco had a long running campaign printing the vouchers on their own brand products, but that was earlier in the season. Fret not however as *some* tesco own brand prod...

Do you think there will be any differences to this for Scarefest?

Maybe having more actors inside the ride?

As you drop into the tunnel, you can't see where the tunnel ends as there is no light shining through.

Re: Alton Towers Scarefest App

Its a shame its not available on android, I too searched the app store and found nothing.

I'm hoping they do update the app to work on androids before i go to scarefest.

Re: 2nd park alongside alton towers, possible?

When you look at the scale of a multi park attraction, both parks need to be huge with a varied choice of rides in each park. When it comes to land, there is a hell of a lot of land around Alton towers...the problem is planning permission/conservation. If Alton Towers got permission to build another...

Re: Advice for a Pregnant Person in the Park

If the pregnancy is making you all broody...try going round to cloud cuckoo land and watching the driving school.

Its so cute watching children as young as 3 driving round their own little town.

Re: What's different during Fireworks weekend?

I can't remember exactly what time the fireworks started/finished, but it did all open up afterwards. I'm not completely sure if all the rides close down but i know for a fact that thirteen, rita and oblivion were all closed completely. Nemesis/forbidden valley is further round the back of the park ...

I'd like to see a ride similar to Th13teen but with the drop section used differently. Instead of the whole track dropping vertically, how about the track has a pivot point.

Re: What's different during Fireworks weekend?
