Re: Euro 2012 Discussion + Sweepstakes

I surprisingly don't have much to say about yesterdays games, Denmark deserved their victory, they were solid at the back during the second half and worked like they wanted it. They did well keeping Holland out. I think Portugal can easily have a chance now over Holland so a draw with them could lea...

Re: Th13teen trimmed yet again?

I as well have noticed it's increased speed, but wouldn't removing more trims save money on electricity bills surely?

Was this added at the start of the season or just in the past week? (Which I assume is the latter).

Re: Euro 2012 Discussion + Sweepstakes

Holland taking a passing approach could eventually wear out the Danes. The Danes long ball tactics are working well and they are keeping Van Persie quiet, Holland's defines aee all over the place, but they've been a bit unlucky with their fair chances but I'm sure there manager will dig into them. I...

Re: Euro 2012 Discussion + Sweepstakes

Holland 4 - 1 Denmark After seeing Denmark at the World Cup and looking at the Qualifying stats. I don't think Denmark will be that open, especially with Schmeichel in goal! Shame Andersen's in goal for Denmark then isn't it? ;) Crap, I knew it. I could of sworn he was hinted or chosen to replace S...

Never bet harshly against a Schmeichel.

Re: You Know You're Addicted to Alton Towers (And TTF) When

When you had THE worst dream ever last  night. I'm going to AT tomorrow, so yeah, I'm really excited! But I dreamt that my ride count was 1- and the only one I'd been on was Charlie :'( I woke up nearly in tears :O Is this too far, or is it weird that I'd be rather chuffed with that, at least ...

Re: Euro 2012 Discussion + Sweepstakes

I expected Greece vs Poland at first to be a cagey game, infact I expected the whole tournament to be rather boring, but last night I was shocked with two top of the class games of football. Although Greece didn't look like a side that had topped their group over Croatia, they were typical Greece an...

When you are asked to choose to go to Drayton or LWV and you say LWV due to Drayton's cheeky poking at Alton with attractions and marketing.

Re: Euro 2012 Discussion + Sweepstakes

If only this were a P4P Sweepstake, I'll happily take these two on top of Greece. Very surprised with the fast flowing games that I won't see England following anytime soon. Will post my full review on the matches later today.

Re: Have we been spoiled by Florida and DLP???

After having a conversation with a friend of mine who reguaely visits Disneyland. I conclude that a better climate and a more populous area suits IP parks better as the atmostphere is easier to find and a sense that you are already part of the magic. If you went to a Six Flags you'd be wanting to be...

Re: Alton towers in...

For 7+8 the minus signs make me tempted to say iron age fort.

This should be in the Tavern for humour values. Speculating more than 10 years is ridiculous, that's why we only have a topic for that.

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

I'm going to be different and say Oblivion. It is more of a personal thing for me, as my first ride on Blivvy infamously involved my Dad's hat falling back onto another guests face. I loved the thrill and I can still remember the fear strike through me as I first descended into Oblivion. Aside from ...

He was the best of the rumoured appointments, he was punching above his weight with Birmingham due to lack of promised investment. I'm sure he'll add his own touch to Norwich and I'm sure he'll put up a good fight to stop a sinking ship. He will have a shaky first season I think as he tries to settl...

Re: Is the Recession Hitting Towers Hard?

You could say that the recent U-Turns at the Towers were cost cutting, but some say it was just for the SW7 fund. Which I believe at Merlin prices, is the more elaborate case. Alton's visitor figures are dropping, but due to lack of major investment last year, but I'm sure this year will be on the r...

If X-Sector had that Steampunk theme, I believe that this could of been themed around a mine instead of a train and it could of been a perfect idea. Not bad.
