Re: Scarefest, travellers meet date and other questions.

I also have a few other questions regarding some of the rides there. (1) I know that Oblivion and Air seem to brake down quite alot, and one of my biggest fears is being stuck on  a broken ride. Do you know how often Air and Oblivion break down, and will it be best to go on just after a break ...

Re: If you had to which ride would you have removed

I voted The Flume, I don't want it to leave the park, but I want a major pirate re-theme with good theming either way I hate the duck themed flume at the moment.

Re: 2013 Season - General Discussion

Anyone know if they have cleaned the rides yet or at least upped the security?

what is you best AT duck moments (cutest/funnyest thing you have seen them do)

As you can probably tell from the (needlessly long) title, I want to know your hi-lights with the Alton Towers ducks. My best moment has got to be when I was on riverbank eye spy, most times when I go on it, I either see ducks swimming around with the model ducks and at least one duck floating down ...

Re: doom+sons1988 Duel Review

WARNING this review WILL contain major spoilers! Duel is one of my all time favourite rides at the park and rightly so. This has got to be one of the best rides of its kind in the UK and with that said now on to the review. Gloomy Wood. Gloomy Wood is almost always near empty which adds to the apnes...

Re: Roper update

Here are my views on the whole thing. The way I see it the Ropers are just milking it to get money and attention. I think it is in their best interest to not take it to high court, either way they will lose. If they lose the case, they will probably go bankrupt almost instantly, on the other hand, i...

Re: Scarefest 2012: General Discussion

By looking at the pic of the sanctury, I can say that the doctor in the pic will prob be a main actor in the maze which hints towards some story driven elements like in past versions of ToTT.
