Re: Quick Questions 2012

/\ Depends on if there is a new ride or not. I would of thought the year Th13teen opened there were more people there than say this year that Nemesis: Sub Terra will open - just simply on the fact that Th13teen was a major investment and received a lot of publicity whereas Sub Terra is only a medium...

Re: Quick Questions 2012

/\ Both the MAP and Alton Towers Annual Pass are covered in the Half Term Event. I would of thought the quietest day of the week will maybe be the Wednesday or Thursday - Personally myself, I am going on the Thursday.

Re: PortAventura 2012: "Shambhala" B&M Mega Coaster

B&M Hyper's have always had a chain return below the track so I would of though its just easier to leave it how it is. Also the new use of chain return within the track spine on Leviathan is probably to do with the extended amount of chain as it is so to cut down on the weight of it. More chain ...

Re: Quick Questions 2012

Next time I am going will be 16th February I think so I will go in and ask - I am guessing the Box office bit will be open during February half term? Can't see why not.

Re: Quick Questions 2012

My Premium Alton pass that I got last March says "PREMIUM ALTON PASS" (although part of PASS is covered by my photo) across the top of it, with no mention of Merlin. I now have a premium merlin pass and the main difference in the two passes is that the Merlin one has a box for you to sign...

There are very good point...

Thorpe Park Trip Planning (Sunday-Monday) - Need Help!

I have planned my first trip to Thorpe Park from Crewe on Sunday 16th till Monday 17th. Now seeing as the car journey is 170 miles and takes 3+ hours to get there we have decided to stop over at the Mecure Thames Lodge Hotel and have booked through Thorpe's own Breaks page. We have decided to go ear...

Re: 2012: New Attractions

Heres my take on it: http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c259/shaney108/AT2012Ride.png The red lines showing the path for guests. Notice how the two different lifts don't cross even in the ride area - they will mix after the exit lift sequence and exit out of the building to the shop. Although the two...

Re: PortAventura 2012: B&M Coaster

/ Thanks for posting an update. Looks like a lot of land clearing taking place - Can't wait till we see some plans or an actual confirmation on what is actually going to be placed here. Planning a trip to Port Aventura in 2012 (last was 2009) with the missus - can't wait. Keep us updated Jivo! :)

Re: PortAventura 2012: B&M Coaster

What do people think about Leviathan (306ft first B&M Giga) that is being built at Canada's Wonderland for 2012? Could Port Aventura be seeing a B&M Giga coaster too? There was talks of it being quiet big, but then they got knocked back and it was purposed to just be a little bigger than Sil...

Some track has been delivered to Hershey Park and it shows the track is infact yellow.

Does anyone know if you can get a discounted price for the VIP parking bay right next to the entrance of the theme park, if you have an annual pass?

Thanks.


As far as I know there is no discount at all for anything - Alton Towers Annual Pass or Merlin Annual Pass.
