Re: How?

When the ride breaks down in the 1st set of block breaks the staff go up and attempt to ride it back down, and through the rest of the circuit, but it doesn't always have enough speed to make it through.

Re: Best Alton Towers Adverts: Over The Years!

Totally disagree with you on Air's advert, after all it was its huge advertising campaign that made Air so popular, and got me into Alton Towers, and advertising.

Re: Wearing tops/vests at Cariba Creek

When I last went I rang reception and asked, they said it's fine. I went down with a top on, and its all good in the pool, but when you go on master blaster etc. they ask you to take it off, but I just said i've already spoke to reception about it, and they let me on :D

Re: Thorpe Park- Dissappointing Visit 21/3

I'm sorry but people are now just moaning for the sake of it. You say lots of rides not working? Stealth and Slammer, fair enough, but would you really want to ride the Banana ride? Just because Colossus has seen better days it does in any way ruin your day. New rides break down a lot, not much any ...

We won free tickets from Sky back in 2002, I hated rides, but got dragged onto Air, and I've been obsessed ever since.

Re: 2009 Promotionals and Visuals

Is it me or does February 3rd, some 7 weeks 5 days before the Full Open Season begins, seem a little late for there to be a) no brochure, b) no opening times and c) no mini site(s) on the website? Disney, Europa-Park etc. had their stuff up several weeks ago. :? I'd say its because they want to pro...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6 Part Two

I don't think the new area will be a direct continuation on the Hex theme, I think it is more likely to be themed along the lines of 'the cursed forect surrounding the towers' a bit like harry potter lol. Where as you wonder through the woods you discover strange things like the womping willow, gian...
