Re: Google Street View at Alton Towers

Its great that they've got it on! I was thinking a few weeks ago that they should include theme parks and now they have! However Alton's and Thorpe's are a bit confusing due to there being so many routes but it's still got to be good advertising :D

Re: Fastrack Prices 2010

Maybe people might but it for rita, however I don't see how they would manage to fit it in unless they got rid of single rider (which they better not) and also on th13teen, I don't think that option would be very popular because the back row is much better on it and I think people realise that as th...

Re: Fastrack Prices 2010

Well the individual ride prices as of the beginning of the holidays were Air- £4 Nemesis- £3 Oblivion- £3 Rita- £5 :shock: Not sure about the others? But Air and Rita's prices have gone up. Also, the pole position on stealth is a total waste of money, you still have to wait a good 5/10 minutes in th...

Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion [SPOILERS TOPIC]

ah thank god it seems to be open :) and I think if the website says it, it probably will be because when there was downtime there was a notice on the website.

Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion [SPOILERS TOPIC]

Wasn't too sure where to post this so I'll just put it here. I'm heading down to Alton on the 31st of March and was wondering what time to go to thirteen? and also which rides would be better to go on at the beginning etc. I'm going with friends who aren't as much enthusiasts. Help would be apprecia...

Re: New flats for Dark Forest?

I would hate them to install a robo-arms ride. :x I went on robo-arms in a park in France and the throughput was terrible. The queue wasn't particularly long, and there were at least eight arms, but the queue was longer than an hour. The ride wasn't even particularly thrilling in my opinion. Imagain...

Re: Which is your favourite thrill ride at Drayton Manor?

^^ If you include the bounty, you have to include blade. Anyway, I think Shockwave is the best followed closely my maelstrom then apocalypse a distant third as I have ridden it countless times. G Force is just awful. :shock:

Re: Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit

If they wanted to still have the MCBRs but still wanted speed they should've done what SAW does, on SAWs MCBR the drop still packs a fair bit of airtime and doesn't lose much speed :)

Re: The Magic List!

I would like some signs which give directions to park areas. I know it's not difficult but if you don't go there much it can be a bit confusing lol especially in the gardens.

Re: Complaint - Alton Towers = Rip Off

I rarely use single rider as it is so fustrating seemingly moving nowhere when the normal queue sometimes seems to be quicker. :)
