Re: Best Movie Soundstracks

The main Terminator soundtrack is great, as is the theme from the finale of the third film.

Looks like the Scarefest hearse is at the bottom of Towers Street today. Pretty excited now :D

Re: huge fear of heights, what rides are safe?

I'd personally avoid Air and Oblivion. Rita isn't too bad (the ride goes so fast, there won't be any sensation of height at all), and Sub Terra features a very small drop. Most of the rides are at ground level, so you shouldn't have too much of a problem. Rita is the exception, but we're talking a f...

Re: Best Flat Ride At Alton Towers

Ripsaw is the best! I can't describe why I love Ripsaw so much, but I just know that no trip to AT is complete without a ride on it.

Re: Worst Experiences at Towers?

My worst trip was in July last year. Little did I know that is was local Potters Week, so the park was absolutely heaving. It didn't help that it was also the hottest day of the year.

Managed three rides in five hours :|

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (**contains spoilers**)

I loved N S-T before the changes, but find the recent additions a little too much. I'm actually thankful when I make it through the maze to the end now  :shock:

Re: Nemesis - Has it been left to rot?

Nemesis is certainly different to the ride of past years. For one, roughness means I can't ride Nemesis as much as I'd like to. I've also noticed sections of track covered in algae or other green slime. Not exactly visually appealing!

Re: Drayton Manor 2012 Season

can anyone get us a pic of draytonmanor in the past years as there is not many Any particular year? I love these pictures: You really do get a sense of how bare and farigroundy Drayton used to be (have a good look at the other pictures in that set) http://www.flickr.com/photos/mallrat37/2499696782/...

Re: Drayton Manor 2012 Season

I don't get the hate for Shockwave. I go on it once a week and it's my second favourite coaster ever. The first drop and Zero G are sensational.

Queueline mystery?

There appears to be a miniature (what looks like) queueline to the left of the Duel entrance. Does anyone know what this is/was used for?

I noticed this for the first time yesterday.

Re: What is your favourite ride in the park? and why?

Nemesis is my favourite ride in the park (and favourite ride in the country for that matter). Everything about it is awesome: the soundtrack, the layout, the themeing. You can't fault it at all.
