Re: Ride Downtime

Since the major coasters seemed to be breaking down on preplanned timeslots almost, I began to suspect it was cost cutting too...I mean it IS Merlin...

Since the big 6 were being shutdown on shifts (assuming that was the case) I have to wonder if it was to minimize STRONG challenge winners?

They have started building wooden framework for something, most probably the station.
Sadly I couldn't get any pictures :(

THE PIRATE SHOW IS BACK...The animatronic parrot (outside the curry place in Mutiny Bay) was advertising it, like flat out saying it runs 3 times a day...because Merlin have no standards!

Back in the late 2000's I would have been raving at the thought of a Doctor Who themed anything but now, now its my #1 worst case scenario (bar Emoji Movie theme) the other day...

Re: Drayton Manor

Its very much putting PR above customer experience but that's just my opinion, I just think it needs to be discussed is all.

Re: Drayton Manor

With all due respect, what about people staying in the hotel? they will get a refund sure but they won't be refunded the travel cost and other stuff like that and there's no reason the park is forced to close!

While I respect what has happened, I think they are mishandling it somewhat.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I have been to burger kitchen and ate a lukewarm, dry burger (I went there 3-4 times last year and enjoyed every time) my mom went to the hotdog place on Tower Street which had a queue of like 5-6 people, after half an hour she fi...

Re: Alton Towers: What Ever Happened to...?

What happened to the NEW FOR 2010 spider crabs, they were making a big fuss over, I think they only lasted 1 year... also what ever happened to the Coffin Photo op in Haunted Hollow?

Could "The Wicker Man" not just be a fake name (like "Surrender" for Thirteen)?

Re: Towers Loving Care

Not sure whether this has been confirmed elsewhere, but according to Alton Towers' Twitter, Nemesis: Sub-Terra is closed for TLC. Presumably, this confirms that we will see the return of N:ST in some form or another in the future. http://image.prntscr.com/image/ff6ff435626f46928ea2488341ac7708.png ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

The AT app won't update for me, even if I delete it and reinstall it (I have tried google play store and from the AT website itself) it still downloads the 2016 version!
How can I get this years version?
I'm using a Vodafone Smart Ultra 7 (Android)
