Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

I've booked to stay at AT this week with the park entry included (scarefest + free 2nd day etc). Will I have to book the Scarefest mazes as well separately or are they included in my package? I know there is mention of booking a time slot. Also will I have to book a table at the Rollercoaster resta...

Re: SP ScareMazing South 2016 - Reviews & Feedback

Well, what a weekend that was... It was fantastic seeing everyone again, always a good laugh with the regulars, but also meeting some newbies, who I look forward to seeing again when they join us for future events. Really impressed with the mazes overall, the BTS are always so insightful, and a nice...

Re: SeaWorld Orlando

Not keen on the idea of adding VR to Kraken, it's such a good, solid ride experience without it. It just seems like a cheaper way to offer something new because the other parks are getting investments. But I'll reserve full judgement until I've tried it- not been on Galactica yet! :)

I'd much rather see what RMC could do with Gwazi, but a giga would be a great addition also :)

Re: The London Dungeon

Visisted The Dungeons yesterday to try out the new Great Fire show, and also my first trip to Traitor's Gate on the boat ride :) The new show was a very impressive room, I liked all the effects they used and the attention to detail was high. As with most new shows the script could do with a bit of t...

Re: Scarefest Mazes for First timers

I agree with all of the above. Start with TotT as you will feel safer and secure being in a conga line, make sure you go in the middle so you have someone guiding you in front and behind you. If it all gets to much just close your eyes and hum, don't panic as that'll just make things worse. I've wor...

Re: Past rides: "Where are they now?" The Guide

After a bit of research, I think I have found the Mississippi Showboat! And yes it still lives on in even greater glory than it did at Alton Towers! The time that the boat left Alton Towers, another boat with a strikingly similar resemblance popped up at another theme park in the south of Spain. Ti...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

For the next two weeks the rehearsals will continue, and they aim to have the ride open at some point each day. Obviously this is subject to availability. How do you know what time they aim to have it open each day? I'm worried I'll miss it if it does open. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk There ...

Evening all :) So today myself and some of the team got to experience Derren Brown's Ghost Train twice. Our first ride we got inside the main building about to board, but had to be evacuated.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

It's all getting very exciting now, although several times over the last month it's looked as if opening is imminent and it didn't, got a good feeling this will be the one! I'll be waiting anxiously with my car keys over this weekend in hope that we will finally be able to experience it :)
