Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Regarding the new proposed ride opening times, it'll be interesting to see how the new shortened running hours will affect the ride. Any ideas?  :-k -Maybe more time spent on maintenance will help to keep things running smoothly (not that it's that unreliable as it is) -Maybe it will get less 'worn ...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

I hope we can assume Wicker Man does stick to the ERT opening time on opening day, rather than waiting 'til 10:00 when there's a bigger crowd to see it be opened. It's probably safe to say there will be enough enthusiasts there to fill the area though, and the ride seems to be on schedule so far, so...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Staff and Recruitment

As it happens, the 'Careers at Alton Towers Resort' Facebook page has just posted a timetable for their staff bus service. The post itself mentions some specific pricing as well :)

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Staff and Recruitment

Not sure what the route is these days, but from memory they do a ten-trip ticket at a good price, and also it costs £4.50 for a single from Towers to Stoke. Can't remember any other rates/return prices, sorry!

Re: Winter Wonderland - Hyde Park London

Having visited the other day, I observed that Wilde Maus XXL had a VR upgrade option for an extra £2, which apparently lowered the main price(I may be wrong). 

Did anyone try this at all? Curious to see what VR would be like on a travelling ride like this.

Re: Fireworks

This show was very enjoyable for me because it had a simple theme, but was put together in a very artful, well-designed and emotionally affective manner. I admit my eyes started rolling when I heard the song 'Firework' start to play (''not this song again!!''), but then when the Towers twist kicked ...

Re: ScareMazing 2017 - Reviews & Feedback

Thank you so much for all who organised this! It was my favourite event yet.  I particularly enjoyed the fact that there were plenty of non-ride exclusives in the first half, so we could all keep our energy for night rides and not be whizzing from place to place too much throughout the day, making i...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Looks like something with a Nemesis-esque feel. Dark, natural and culty.

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

The good thing is that you know someone very keen will pay these high prices, rather than dropping it like that loom band dress on ebay that had a bid of £100000(or something) but didn't go for anywhere near that much in the end :lol also it's always worth investing a bit more in the things you want...

It looks amazing! There have always been good reviews flying around for it, but having never been there or even really looked into it myself, I had no idea how beautiful and immersive it is until now  :O

Re: Scarefest

Impressive of them to fly it up so quickly. Probably difficult to have 2 ongoing major constructions in the same kind of area and keep our eyes away from it all. Maybe they could use the maze to actively distract from the SW8 construction site somehow :lol

Re: SW8 Speculation and Discussion

But whatever the theming structure turns out to be, it'll certainly have a good near miss moment :) Not to mention the first time the train interacts with the theming structure you'll be traveling at some speed. Coming from the lift hill you enter the sound tunnel which goes on for quite a while, t...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

It's definitely exciting to keep an eye on the less geometrical, more interesting shapes of the metal structure. They give us little glimpses of character among all the dirt and straight lines which make up most of the rest of the site at the moment :D

Cookehs will most likely be provided but there'll be a limited number available (unless I invest in a giant sack and beard and throw them out like Father Christmas) :santa:


Please do


But make sure you save a special, giant one for John at the end

Re: The TTSP Referendum

I voted, but spoiled my vote. Not because I'm lazy and never bothered to research the politics etc, but because after finally finding the raw facts and ignoring propaganda and opinionated posts on FB, I realised that there were actually equally important and supportable points on both sides.
