Re: TT Spring Spectacular 2019 - Reviews & Feedback

Definitely one of the funniest events I've attended. Amazing to see everyone after the closed season and some new faces too! Everyone seemed to have enjoyed themselves which is great to see. Smiler ERT was surprisingly smooth! Really good kickstart to the day, some great ride takeovers soon followed...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

I was never a fan of pin badges, I never felt the buzz for them really but now I do collect some. I don't collect every single one but do collect the ones which are of rides I enjoy or some which are different. This Power Of The Towers pin isn't exactly my thing and don't particularly like it too mu...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - Rise Of The Demon

At this point, anything is better than last year (which proved rightly so at the TTSP event last year). I have a lot of love for this ride, I hope the ride receives the work it needs to just make it stable. It's a great ride when it works, but when it doesn't and you've waited ages in the queue for ...

From the photos, it just looks a bit empty? I do hope there is more added inside those Tipis to make them a bit more filling but honestly they look very empty at this point.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Could someone take note of what time the front gates open for ERT tomorrow? Just want to know what sort of time to get there on Sunday. Thanks :) In the past when I've visited, the gates have opened around 9:15/20 via one section of the gates. That section is reserved for those who qualify for ERT ...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

That's school trip season so don't expect it to be empty I'm currently torn between looking at the videos and staying spoiler free on the off chance I actually do it. It certainly isn't something I'm desperate to do. Does anyone know if they've managed to fully cover up the Charlie stuff yet? I dou...

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

Having had a closer look, has anyone noticed that Saw:Alive isn't on the map at all? Last year's map still had the attraction on the map even though it wasn't used until Fright Nights. Even Living Nightmare is on the online app and states it will return in 2019. Could this suggest that Saw:Alive wil...

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Even though it is sad news the VR is being removed, this is honestly for the best in terms of operations. I love the theming and hope that it is kept along with the soundtrack.

I'll very much enjoy getting back on the ride now that the VR won't be a problem.

Re: The Swarm

I doubt brave it backwards would return due to the health and safety side of it. I imagine this is just a stock image that Thorpe had that was best suited for the image.

I would love to see it return in the future but I think its highly unlikely.

Ticket booked, can't wait for this one! Dungeon presentation/Q&A should be fun as well as the takeover after park close!

Can't wait for this first event of the year!

Get out.

Saw: 2nd dispatched train front row in the middle is (in my opinion) the best way to experience the full ride.

I agree with Chris, a stary/night sky indicating late night riding? I guess we shall see since nothing about the Summer Lates were mentioned on the events poster.
