Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Apparently there was a loud bang half way around.  What it was that caused the bang, I don't know.  Some one describe it as if a mobile phone hit the carriage, but could they said they could be wrong.

Anyone seen anymore of the Scaresmospheres? I am there this Saturday and wondering if its worth it to look at the areas as it gets dark?

Personally, I would say no.  However I did bump into them a couple of times.  The Flash mob is OK though.

How awesome does it look in the dark? :love

Can’t wait to see it for myself next week.

It looks absolutely amazing in the dark, looks like real fire, and you can see the flames too when riding it in the dark, looks like you are going through real fire.

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Had a look on the Alton Towers crowd calender and decided to head up on Friday 5th October as a solo visit. With Scarefest happening on the 6th and 7th and no schools off, I'm hoping it will be really quiet. Any thoughts? Also wondering what people feeling are about going to the park solo? I've gon...

It looks over the Pleasure Beach if you get ...

Every single time I’ve ridden this year it’s been him operating 90% of the time, or a lady, presumably when he’s on his break / day off.  I meant build wise in height and stature, he is a lovely guy.  ...
