Re: Alton Towers Hotel

At the current rate card prices the AT hotel has to be possibly one of the most overpriced hotels in the UK if not Europe especially in the current climate.  I wanted to stay recently and the asking price was £350 for a single evening!!! We are talking about a 4 star hotel here and one that by...

Re: Nemesis: Sub-Terra Discussion (May Contain Spoilers)

it really doesn't deserve the amount of stick you guys have been giving it. Everyone just hyped it up massively. No. We didn't. This attitude really irritates me. The ride has never been hyped. We've known along that it would be 4 extremis towers and some special effects. In the rides first two wee...

Re: Favourite Version of 'In the Hall of the Mountain King'?

A version that I was always fond of was an older remix that we had on record. It’s a bit slower to get going but builds up really well to the end. I've just managed to find it on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRjSceZMooU The scream 0:11 seconds in was really hard to hear on the original re...

Can't they add something like what's in the wall in towers trading, or the giant map in guest services, that would look brilliant.


That's what has been done, there's now a park map on the wall of the Resort Hotels Monorail station  :)

Re: 2012 Map & Marketing

The Alton Towers Youtube account has just uploaded a new Short Breaks video . Whilst the advert itself doesn't interest me, I enjoy that they've added Enterprise and Submission upper right towards the end. No idea if it was intentional considering they were planned to be SBNO earlier this season. I...

Re: Alton Towers 2012 in Review

A few minor changes that I spotted yesterday. - In the monorail car park station there is now a big park map on the wall (near the car park ticket machines) with a list of all the food outlets on park. - The video on Hex is better than a few weeks ago as its now the proper colour however its full o...

Re: Nemesis- Rough?

I'm not saying Nemesis is rough, many times I have been on it, it's been smooth, a few times it has seemed a lot rougher and you can feel this from coming off the lift hill, but it's like there's something on of the wheels because it rattles from the start, and by the end of the ride it shakes a lot...

Re: Alton Towers Waterpark - Refurb 2012

Unsure on how long this has been in place, but the Water Park ticket price is now £16.50 for a 1/2 day session, and you save 10% online. The "on the gate" price has gone up 10% so the "saving" online actually just means you'll pay what it was before. Merlin Annual Pass holders p...

It's supposed to be a military installation, the staff are acting like that. You're not supposed to take it seriously. When I was there the other day, as well as the 'scary' operatives shouting at people to move forward etc. there were also some funny ones i.e joking shouting at some woman in a pon...

A document of my visit on Tuesday on the wonderful market Towers Street. We entered the park through the turn styles we're immediately greeted by a staff member shouting (yes, shouting at the top of their voice):  "GET YOUR QUENCHERS HERE, UNLIMITED DRINKS ALL DAY FOR ONLY FIVE POUNDS&quo...

Re: Queue Displays

When I visited a fortnight ago, Nemesis never showed a time and I don't remember Air doing so either. In regards to the app - I found it worked 9 times out of 10 but wasn't always in sync with the electronic boards. The electronic boards only update every 30 mins, the app updates every 10 I think?
