The Smiler reopening next season is good for Alton Towers but would guests be still willing to pay roughly £26 each with a 2 for 1 ticket just to queue up all day for Rollercoasters?


£26 sounds like an alright deal to me. I've done it before, and I'll do it again.

She is also content that the same level of human error on other rides, such as nemesis, would not result in an accident, which is probably true, and she will still ride those! Would she only not ride The Smiler, or every other multi-train roller coaster. It makes sense why on Nemesis a collision of...

Re: Nemesis Explained YouTube Video

I love the CoasterBot videos, they're amazing. You should do videos on general coaster features, like manufacturers, types, trains, etc, in the style of your current videos, it would be great :D Thanks! I was definitely thinking of expanding into explaining manufacturers in the future. But train an...

Re: The John Lewis Christmas Advert 2015

You have to remember, it's an advert with the sole purpose to increase the amount of goods sold by John Lewis. There would have been a multitude of sessions where several ideas would have been gone over with focus groups to determine which idea is the best. Saying this, the advert is based around th...

So just come across this tweet on Twitter, they reply with the standard response as of late; stating that they're taking the 'necessary steps' first, however what they say next is quite interesting and hints that it may open tomorrow as he is asking whether it'll operate tomorrow and they don't say...

It's testing again today, with the trains dueling. However there seems to be more dummies being used compared to what we have seen recently.

I will be creating a storage device (e.g draw/cupboard/desk thing) for students who are currently at University. I need to collect research on the type of storage student...

Re: Colossus

Sounds about right Sum1Mad. You don't need 5 of the same inversion, a heartline roll, on the same ride. Its a cool experience but I would say a mix of inversions would have been much better.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

Looks like there is a lot of school trips at Towers at the moment as it is the second to last day of school. You might have better luck tomorrow as there shouldn't be as many school trips.
