Re: gift prices

Alton Snowglobe= £12
Large/well themed mugs= £8
Smaller logo mugs= £4
Set of 4 small mugs in monorail box= £12
Trophies around £4 or so pound, but they are tacky and plastic, so I'd steer clear of them.

Re: help strangers

Is it possible to visite both parks in one day ? Nope, but you could visit, Thorpe and Chessington, or Legoland How far are they one from another ? Very far, a couple of hundred miles. Thorpe is in the south of England, Alton is in north England. Is it better to buy tickets on-line or on the spot ? ...

Re: Alton Towers Or Thorpe Park?

I actually reckon that those with Thorpe closest to their hearts, would probably still say Alton is a superior attraction. As I said earlier, I'm happy to admit that Alton is a much better park & experiece, yet Thorpe will always have that special place in my heart, and if one of the two had to...

Re: Alton Towers Or Thorpe Park?

This is a bit of a biased survey however, try posting this on TPM or the Thorpe facebook page and I'm sure the response will be different. :lol: 'Alton towrz iz well boringgg, liak none of the rides go upside town' etc.. 8) Sorry I had to pick up on this, but I must say that I am a completely obses...

Re: Sun free tickets

:uk: My sister recieved 2 free tickets from the sun but is unable to go due to work commitments would it be ok for her to give the tickets to me and my partner so that we could go instead? As long as you aren't paying for the free ticket, Alton cannot do anything, as it wouldn't be ticket touting. ...

Re: Th13teen Evening: 19th June 2010

Just wondering it seem's people who were not even booked on the original weekend are being aloud to go if this is the case it seems a little unfair. Does anyone know how many people approx are going. You can't go if you weren't originally going. You need the original booking reference, so only orig...

Re: THORPE PARK 2010

"As someone quipped to me rather amusingly after they saw that photo, "Intamin Acceleracist".

Why?

Why is it, that being patriotic is so often associated with racism, every other country does it, but when it comes to england, your branded racist for sporting an England flag.

Re: Alton Towers Or Thorpe Park?

Although, a HUGE factor in my decsion is the On-Park Security. If a park's security wears Stab-vests, then that puts me off a bit... It's a sign of the times, if security wearing stab vests puts you off, think about he amount of knives around you when walking through London. :) Can't blame Thorpe f...

Yeah I just though that :?

If you caught it at 10 as soon as it opens though, you'll still probably be at Thirteen before the non ERT'ers

Re: 9th June: Strategy?

Surely you should tackle Spinball & Oblivion first, as they're closer to the entrance, then head to Nemmy, and skyride it over to Th13teen?
