The only time to really experience Wicker man fire effects and that is in the dark  :)

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Is that dirt, or did they manage to pressure wash the writing off? Justin & I were talking to a member of staff the day before opening, and when we mentioned how faded the original bricks were looking, she did say that the plaza had been jet-washed over winter.... That is terrible, I have broug...

Arrived on park yesterday. Nice to see the bricks with our names on have weathered nicely    :( https://i.imgur.com/oAVBvYd.jpg Spotted a new (leek?) sign with regards to treating staff and other guest with respect https://i.imgur.com/e21NSco.jpg They were testing the rapids yesterday, but stil...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

I did the Dungeons yesterday. The photos of the outside do not do it any justice. The exterior certainly looks loads better in person. I loved the Black River ride, best part of the Dungeons and could have been a stand alone free attraction in itself without the rest of the dungeons. As for the res...

Re: Creative Ideas For new AT Attractions

How about a rollercoaster with an invisible track? Is it possible? Obviously the track has to be there, but the track could be made transparent or at least enough to fool someone coming out of a corkscrew or a loop? For all the safety you know is there before getting on the coaster, that split seco...

*Prays for Wicker man SRQ

I would love to see a SRQ on Wicker man, but I can only see it working if you bypass the pre-show as groups of people can abuse it.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I personally find the opening weekend can have teething problems.  I personally would always choose the Sunday over Saturday as this is usually the quieter of the two days.  Also you could check the weather forecast to help you decide

Re: X-Sector refurbishment?

 I know they cant have too much noise but surely a whisper of "Don't look down" is never gonna be heard outside of the park over the screams. The thing with sound, it not the the volume, it's more to do with the sound waves.  Sound can travel (especially if the wind takes it or if the atm...

Re: Alton Towers Hotel & Splash Landings

Not too sure what you are asking?

It's up to 40% off accommodation using a MAP or season pass when booking through the Merlin holiday club.  However not all accommodation are discounted at all. The discount can vary depends on the date and type of accommodation.

Re: Early Ride Time 2019 Predictions

Wicker Man and The Smiler pull in the biggest queues at the start of the day and remain busy, so to me, it makes sense to include these in the ERT (along with a smaller height restriction coaster for the younger ones) . 

I would also like to see ERT return to a full hour, but it won't happen.
