Re: Annual pass quencher / Day quencher - Have I been mugged?

I've never paid £40 for post mix :-/
I would highly doubt Alton would be paying that.

Re: Ride Downtime Thread 2012

My ride tech knowledge isn't good but shouldn't they have some sort of protection to stop people getting hurt if this happens?

Re: Food Poisoning at Alton Towers 19th July 2012

After about 2 weeks of starting my new job I became ill with a horrible cold and bad stomach and every now and then I got ill. Now I carry hand sanitizer in my pocket. This shows how easy it is to become ill in these type of environments, people don't wash their hands, visit with illnesses and it ca...

Re: Auld Reekie Tours?

I *think* that is the tour we went on when I was up performing at the Fringe and if it is then we had a blast! It wasnt terrifying, it was interesting and yeah it had some scare element to it but nothing that will cause concern for you! Food wise, used to be a great little fish and chip shop on the ...

Re: London Dungeons possibly moving to county hall

They won't start the marketing yet, they've not even started moving.
It won't be open in County Hall until the beginning of 2013 so it's too early for a marketing campaign.
When they start working on the new site and people are looking and going 'hmm what's that?' then they'll do something.

Saw a condom in the net for Rush at Thorpe before, that was quite amusing. And a shoe and a smashed HTC at Swarm.

Re: Food Poisoning at Alton Towers 19th July 2012

As previously stated get confirmed by a doctor before putting in any complaint. A few years back a friend of mine complained about food poisoning from a park (not a Merlin one), the park very quickly responded saying they're very sorry and will be glad to compensate for it if a Doctor confirms it. W...

Re: Worst Experiences at Towers?

Some people don't have the luxury of ERT and can't get there before the ques start to build. When I went to Thorpe a couple of weeks ago I only managed a minimal ride count and I was there just after opening. If que lines are long and you don't have full day to use then it's quite easy to do very fe...

my thoughts exactly, yet do we know yet if it's 100 percent finished, do we know if more of the crushed effect could be added on later?


Personally I'd add a surround, like concrete so it looks like it's smashed a hole into the ground so hopefully they'll complete it with something like that.

Thorpe Park Mania just posted a photo of the new theming. Looks to be an ambulance that's been thrown and landed upright.

Re: Thorpe Park 2013: Possible Ride Discussion

Makes sense having one. Nemesis Inferno fast track kiosk is causing congestion and Dome, well Dome is never open when Im on park! Makes it easier if you don't want to join the normal que to get your fast track there rather than having to go across park and get one.

I'm going to go for Thunderlooper, I know it was knackered but in my opinion it still dominated the area even when Nemisis opened.
I believe it is some park in brazil now.
