Re: Alton Towers Stargazing Pods - Opening April 12th 2019

Leek Signs have provided another interesting update, this time for the Stargazing Pods which are due to open on April 12th. Their latest images show the toilet block and Tipi. https://i.imgur.com/3070yCv.jpg https://i.imgur.com/IJFN9Ld.jpg https://i.imgur.com/6sifwyG.jpg https://i.imgur.com/jrAhayq...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I really like it. I think it is because it features more 'real' footage instead of CGI. I also like how they have mixed the sounds of the resort.

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

Alton Towers Resort has released their latest TV advert which features The Alton Towers Dungeon. I do wonder if they will add the flame torches as featured in the still below?

Re: Stealth

It is really nice when the ops take the time to interact. It makes it more memorable and adds to the overall experience. I wouldn't like it to be done on every ride, but Stealth having the fun vibe it does, works!

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - General Discussion

No doubt the sugar tax has been incorporated into the main cost of the cup, therefore sugar free drinkers are paying a premium. I could be wrong!

I'd have to agree!

I'm a big fan of Wicker Man, but I'd ride it whatever! Flames or no flames! :)

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

It was coming out of one last Sunday, but I'm unsure if this has been resolved. To be honest, there is no guarantee that the flames will be working on any day, therefore I'd stick to your planned trip (just check the park is open).

One of my niggles about the boat ride is...

Spoiler: show
The animatronic that wiggles above your head. Why is it in a boiler suit? It would have been nice to have seen it in period costume.

Re: The Alton Towers Park Map

The map isn't bad to be honest. It is a style that has been used for a few years now, but it is a design that links instantly to Towers. Any redesign would have to be carefully thought out, otherwise we will get something diabolical like Thorpe's new map! I did notice Burger Kitchen in CCL is now th...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

The Towers were open today, but it is even more restricted than before as we were unable to get right to the top. Still, it was very nice to get back in them!
