Re: Submission Replacement

I think with a significant amount of work that Ripsaw would fit nicely here. They could even use the innoculator needles around the water jets to make it seem like the needles are shooting chemicals at the riders

Re: SW8

I have just re read the sign up about the flume site. It states that the flume is going to be unplugged in order to make way from a new secret weapon coming from Switzerland. Also it says that they don't know how long it will take. Now if I remember correctly SW7 was actually going to be made by B&...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Exactly what I said to them. They said that it said in print on the ticket that they will not supply refunds. Had to leave. We're calling them up tomorrow. I don't know what we can do now. Probably just accept that we've been robbed £12

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Woah. What a day. What a daaaay!!! Well, at 9 we ran to the smiler to queue, but they told us to go away and queue in half hour. So we did. We queued for an hour, but the team said that it wouldn't open until lunch. So, we bought a fast track, £6 each. Not too bad. They were timed for 11:30, but the...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Okay so it's having technical difficulties. We ran straight there at 9 and got sent away. Went on nemesis and thirteen and can back half an hour ago. We've been let into the queue but have not been told when it will be open. May be a few hours yet so who knows! Somebody get us a drink were sat down ...

Re: Drinks

Tip: Theres a small restaurant/ shop near the entrance of alton towers. If you go there, there are refill stations that are unaccompanied by staff, so you can take old refill cups with you ;)

Re: Quick Questions

What are the privileges and pros if I chose to book a night at towers and not another hotel?
Does the hotel hold onto your luggage the day you check in AND the day you check out, so you can go to the park?
Can I get free perks such as fastpasses?
Thankyou :D

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

£10? Surely thats pushing it a bit. People (like myself) will travel for hours to get to the park. Its not very likely that ill be back again in the year, so a fast track would help my day.
£10 is too much. And only 40 an hour? Thy may aswell scrap the whole idea

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

So how much are they charging for these fasttracks?
Are they as available as the other fasttracks? Or are they only given to certain people?

Re: Quick Questions

Hey TT! We're staying at the splash landings hotel for 1 night, and going to the park for 2 days. Is it possible to still eat at The resteraunts on the end of the 2nd day even though we will have checked out already? Thanks

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Lets place our bets! £100 itll open in June I'll be there on the 13th June, so i really hope it is open by then. It does seem rediculous that it was originally planned to be open on March 16th, almost 2 and a half months have passed and we still don't know when it will actually open. Very bad plann...

Re: hotel 2day passes...

Depends, is the ticket an open dated ticket?
If it has the date on it then its highly unlikely that you could use them.
Maybe you should call towers and see what you can do (0871 222 3330 )
