Re: THI3TEEN after three seasons:

Th13teen's a really fun coaster for all the family with a free-fall drop sequence that STILL provides a sensation like no other after multiple rides. The backwards section in complete darkness also offers great thrills. The theming isn't quite as immersive as I'd hoped and I'd welcome improvements t...

Re: Hex's popularity?

I appreciate and enjoy the theming and atmosphere of Hex but I find the actual ride quite tedious

Re: 2013 Offers, Deals, Vouchers and Discounts

Is it too late to buy my first copy of The Sun today? Like how many vouchers do you need for the free tickets and how many days are left on the promotion?

Alton really need to get a Soundtrack released. Would definitely make Bus journeys much more exciting!

Re: Alton Towers Hotel & Splash Landings

I have a great deal of nostalgic joy whenever anybody mentions the hotels at Alton Towers. I've always thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. The accommodation, staff, entertainment, grounds, food & water park were like nothing else I'd ever experienced. I'd love to visit and stay again but I'm now a...

Re: Alton Towers 2013 Map

I have been going to Alton a few times a year since I was 10 years old and I can honestly say I have never even considered using Alton Towers' Map as a means of guidance. I've always followed whatever signage is available in the park or asked a member of staff for directions. The map to me is nothin...

Re: Which Theme Do You Prefer?

I've voted for Ug Land (Pre-Rita Era).

I find Dark Forest far too sparse to be immersive or convincing. I do prefer the concept of it to Ug Land but the reality of it isn't quite so successful

There are ALWAYS 2-For-1 vouchers available to some extent. I can't remember the last time I paid full admission!

Re: Best Ride Entrance

I find the entrance to Nemesis very average! I don't understand why it's so popular. The theming of Nemmy is fantastic but the entrance? Not so much

Re: What makes Alton Towers your favourite theme park?

It's the closest theme park to me geographically
The theming of the rides

Re: Coaster theming

I think the thing that proves that theming is important on a roller-coaster is the fact that my girlfriend happily rode ALL the roller-coaster's that BPB had to offer (Including Infusion which for me is like 'Nemesis-Lite' or 'Diet Nemesis')  but categorically refuses to go anywhere Nemesis. I ...

Re: Which Theme Was Your Favourite At The Park?

It was a close call between X-Sector and Forbidden Valley, but I had to go with X-Sector. I can still remember my reaction the first time I saw Oblivion beyond the entrance to the area :yikes: I always found the faux electric barbed wire around the area very intimidating I do miss the Black Hole and...

Re: Do you think Nemesis will always be the no1 coaster at the park?

I've voted for no. From what I've read about Secret Weapon 7 I think it'll outshine old Nemmy! (Excellent theming permitting 8))

Re: Thorpe Park 2012: The Swarm and General Discussion

Just thought I'd post a quick review of my visit to Thorpe Park yesterday. It was only my second ever visit to the park (much more of an Alton Towers regular but I've moved down South for University) Queue times averaged between 5-20 minutes depending on waiting for a front row seat or not, the park...
