Re: Hex X

To be honest I always thought that Hex was one of the more underappreaciated rides in the park. Despite it's capacity of around 80, in recent years the most people I've seen on it is around 20 or so. Still, it's a great dark ride :)

Re: Were you ever scared of the Haunted House ?

. Plus when I was waiting outside I definitely remember a thumping and muffled voices coming from a speaker in the tombstone outside the house which played at intervals. It’s never been mentioned anywhere else. Not even from hauntedone. Anyone else remember it? Oh yeah, I remember that now as well....

Re: Celebrities at Alton Towers Resort

It kinda annoys me that they get the whole back row to themselves. Granted, I wouldn't particularly wanna ride Oblivion with them, but if I was in the queue and that happened I'd be pretty peeved off. Don't mean to annoy you.. but we got the whole car to just me and two freinds :P All of us had the...

Re: Celebrities at Alton Towers Resort

If that picture above is how it looks, and 5 'normal' folk were prevented from boarding because of the Almighty Katie Price and her entourage, I am frankly spitting mad at Alton Towers. Absolutely revolting, pandering to such pond life at the expense of equally paying customers. What does she/they ...

Re: What is next to go?

I can see Duel being removed (As Duel) within the near future, simply due to the fact that 2 of the most moaned about ride themes (Rita and Spinball) have been attended to, and Duel must have 1,000,000 different threads on here with people moaning over it. Do you mean that Duel will become somethin...

Re: ** Ripsaw **

I love Ripsaw. I've got a friend who normally suffers from really bad motion sickness, but he seems to be alright on this. So long as you're not drunk or haven't just ate, you should be fine.

Re: Fastrack Prices 2010

Just a quick question...with the annual pass, which gives you a 20% discount in the shops, can you also get a discount on fastrack?

Re: Were you ever scared of the Haunted House ?

The first time I went on it was in 96 I think (it was the year the hotel opened) and it terrified me beyond belief. The second time I went on it I was about 10 years old and I was still scared! But when I finally got the courage to ride it with my eyes open it turned into Duel, and everything seemed...

Re: Best themed park in the world

What Alton Towers lacks in theming, it more than makes up for in personality. the Disney and Universal theme parks look incredible due to their amazingly huge budgets, but their personality is mostly reflected based on their represented franchises. This is the key difference between parks like that,...

Re: Duel

Personally, I feel that they should either removed all the old HH theming and make the ride solely about fighting zombies, or strip out the guns, LEDs and zombies and give us a new HH. At the moment, the ride is confused, and just looks bad for it. I'd much prefer Duel became the latter, pretty muc...

Re: Oblivion Shuttle

Personally I like the new Oblivion entrance.

As for the 'Forbidden Truckers'...I kinda misread it and for a second thought it was full of win. But alas :(

Re: Hex - Part of the Dark Forest

I don't see why Hex would be a part of Dark Forest anyway, it might be a supernatural-themed ride but it's integral to the Towers, which are too important to be attached to any other area. It would seem wrong if the towers of Alton Towers were added to a themed area, they should remain stand-alone.

Re: Duel

I know some people might kill me for suggesting this but i'd like a SAW theme like at Thorpe. But still keeping the guns so you still shoot at things but make it more scary with blood spraying at you etc Considering Alton and Thorpe are owned by the same company i'm sure there wouldn't be any copyr...

When you said that I thought it meant that fastrack was included in the annual pass, was so dissappointed :(
