Re: Park Music and Videos

Has anyone got a longer version of the Mutiny Bay music than the one on here?

That music is epic!

Re: The story of Thirteen (Unofficial)

The Nemesis story is on the wall in the Fish and Chips shop in Forbidden Valley! I was with a friend, who isn't into theme parks, and he asked "Doesn't Nemesis have a story behind it?". I think people are vaguley aware, it just needs to be explained again somewhere more blatent than a fish...

Re: Rail/Bus Transport to Alton Towers: Timetables 2010

The AT 14/15 stop at Hanley Bus Station too, right?

It's about 10/15 minutes difference to the Train Station times, isn't it?

Just looking for confirmation, thanks.

Re: Were you ever scared of the Haunted House ?

I think you're right, the dolls house music was played near the dolls house (obviously) when you went past, but the main Entrance Hall piece played throughout the inside queue and apparently up until Trommel's Tunnel. I can't say I remember this too vividly, but here's a quote from [url=http://www.h...

Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion [NO SPOILERS]

Bah! I saw it on the news and ruined it by accident, I wasn't expecting them to show it so openly!

In fairness, I won't be going for a few months realistically so as long as I don't hear anything too detailed, it's not the end of the world!

Re: Th13teen - Ride discussion [NO SPOILERS]

Knowing my luck, I'll resist the urge to look at spoilers and then have it ruined by someone in the queue, just before I ride! :lol: :x

Re: The Future of The Flume

Most of these type of water rides seem to follow the "you've been sent out to work on the loggery but oh no! something's gone wrong involving a monkey and gunpower and now theres a big drop!" variety. That really made me laugh! It's so true! :lol: As for The Flume, I wouldn't like to see ...

Re: Ug Land/Rita 2010 Part 2

The first scarefest with the Dark Forest will something special! 8)

That theming looks good from what I can see, after all, they are just shops. It looks like it'll fit the area nicely, anything is better than Fish and Chips in FV. :roll:

Re: Ug Land/Rita 2010 Part 2

Did we ever see any pictures of the rest of what was Ug Land, the row of shops basically? I think it's good that they have gone to the effort of trying to have some continuity by have the overgrown Rita. Other parks don't seem to care about abandoning past themes altogether, look at Duelling Dragons...

Re: Free Alton Towers Remix Album!

Nice work! Mutiny Bay is epic, I'd love that to be longer!

What is the second interlude meant to be, though?

Re: New to the forum? Introduce yourself here!

Greetings! I think it goes without saying that I love Alton Towers, I can remember being really interested since I was a young child, I'm 19 now. I've been a fair few times, but not as many as I'd like. I live in Birmingham, so I'm not too far away from The Towers, but not as close as I'd like to be...
