Well after taking a year out,  its back  :D

I thought it was a shame to waste all the photos, featuring plenty of unseen photos from 2013 with more to come in 2014.

Re: Fireworks 2013

Loved the fireworks this year. Really great to see some kind of story back.

Great lighting too.

Anyone else notice the displays were slightly different too on Sunday to the Saturday night  ;)

Re: 2013 Scarefest

Well back from Scarefest with lungs full of fumes from those flaming lighting generators. The noise from the ones in Katanga Canyon were just unbelievable. 2013 and they are still using these  :roll: You could not even hear your self speak with the noise it was making. Some nice touches in plac...

Re: Anyone ever vomited on or after a ride?

I'm lucky I never get sick on rides  :) but I am not good if I see someone being sick. We were sat in that fresh chip place by Ripsaw only a month or so ago. Was tucking into my chips, sausage and beans when I heard gasps of omg. Looked up  and there was a guy sat nearly in the middle of R...

Re: 2013 Scarefest

Total madness if this is 7pm closure goes ahead  :x Are they trying their best to put people off going all together. If Scarefest closes at 7pm this year I will give it a miss and go elsewhere ! Many other Uk attractions are upping their game on Halloween and its about time Alton did the same. ...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

I was wondering do you think they could extend the queue within the pit during the closed season as there seems a lot of wasted space down there and it could put an end to these awful extended queues. Its also a shame they felt the need to go over the top with the high fencing around the ride. Other...

Re: Chessington's £5million upgrade

2013 was looking like it could have a real come back year with Chessington with its first major new attraction for years. Instead it must be one the worst they have ever had ! All this theming has been let to rot over the years as mentioned. I really can see Alton going this way in some areas especi...

Re: 2013 Scarefest

I say it every year and it never happens but really hope they go all out on the lighting this year. Think I would rather have great lighting than even theming. Would like to see some kind of mini show light Fright Lights again. Imagine something like this on the Towers wall by Hex, could be viewed f...

Re: Retheme, Repaint, Rebrand?

I think the worn out-ness of nemesis actually works well so it would be hard to add more theming and getting it to look the same! Yes the worn out theme works well on the rest of Nemesis track etc But not the monster, faded and paint peeling really lets it down. It looked so much better when it was...

Re: Retheme, Repaint, Rebrand?

Nemy monster is looking a sorry state and really would benefit from a repaint. Would they go as far as like Chessington and remove all the monster fibre glass style theming from the station and rebuild it from scratch or just touch it up. I would really like to see some new theming elements added to...

Just watched the video thanks for posting it. I know you can't judge something until you have experienced it for yourself but from viewing that video and the photos it really does look bland and as if its been done on a really tight budget. Ok I know its only march and perhaps when there some sun ou...

Re: Half Term Hotel Prices

I too enjoy the singers on the ship. They really are great and I always make sure I head over to the hotels especially during Scarefest to see them. I can still do all this and they head back to the Premier Inn down the rd. Yep I am one of the nutters that do visit a lot,although last year was less ...

Re: Half Term Hotel Prices

Having stayed in the hotels twice in the past both at very special offers rates I would never pay some of those prices. Give me a Premier Inn any day. Premier Inn have really raised their game lately and I always choose to stay there now. I agree the settting of the hotels at Alton are nice. Its nic...

2012 is my first year I too have only visted once and that was for the fireworks. Hopefully with the new coaster I will get there more this year. I have tended to visit southern attractions much more this year. Thorpe, Chessie etc. Really hope Alton puts more effort into it events in 2013. A must is...

A lot of interesting suggestions.. Longleat is near me so that would be nice.

Re: 2012 fireworks

Looks like they were expecting big crowds this year but never got them. It was busy but you only had to look at the extra car parks not used and how easy it was to get out after. Biggest mistake they made was not doing the late entry ticket and looks like many went elsewhere because of this. Yes the...
