Re: Alton Towers Hotel Refurbishment

They need to add Air-Con to the rooms! When I went last year, it was so hot in the room. It wasn't even a hot day outside (probably around 16-17 degrees).

That goes to Splash Landings as well.

Re: Quick Questions

Any ticket lets you in at 9, you just can't go on the ERT rides.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

They are not advertising it anywhere though saying that it is closed (except ridetimes.co.uk, but only a few know about that). Still on the AT homepage saying its here. It's bad of AT to do this. Loads of people are asking on Facebook and Twitter and no one will reply.

Re: Ride Downtime 2013

Ouch! Rita, Spinball and The Smiler are all done at the moment with shortest coaster q at 50min.

And that's why I don't go during school holidays

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Absolutely awful of AT not to put it on their website/social media that the ride is closed. Front page, bang, advertising the smiler.

Re: I'm getting worried about Air

I was at AT in may and it broke down as we were about to get on for the best part of 45 minutes. I am a little worried as I read in the paper the other day people were stranded on it for 14 minutes last week! For a type of ride that is still pretty new it's a shame to see it suffer They were on the...

Hi all :-) I haven't been to Alton Towers since I was 14, and although it is my favourite place to go, I do recall horrible waiting times almost ruining my days there.

Re: Quick Questions

It will be my third time going to the Resort. Previously we received complimentary Fastrack tickets for some rides with our Hotel booking(s). Is this still the case? If yes, can anyone tell us for which rides there will be fast track tickets? Thanks! Doubt it, I've never received fast track tickets...
