Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

Backwards didn't work for me. One staff member forgot to switch it around for me, while another one said they wouldn't do it at all as it's considered as a glitch. Quite disappointed! :(

Re: Rollercoaster Restaurant - 2016

I accidentally Rollercoaster Restaurant on Saturday. Was curious if I could a table without pre-booking, and surprisingly I got a table right away (which isn't that much of a surprise though, as I was there by myself). The staff was super friendly and helpful, and ordering via tablet was quite easy....

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

TP just posted some additional and unspoken rules for DBGT (I say unspoken rules as not all of them are featured on the actual warning sign outside the attraction):

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

I do apologise if that has been mention before ( I couldn't find it though): Someone over at Coasterforce said you can ask staff to have the VR set to backwards? So that your view is facing the other way around?
Can anyone confirm this? If this was true, wouldn't they somehow advertise it? :o

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I wonder if they'll still have an annual pass preview day, and if so, when? We still don't know the actual opening. But im wondering. Asked TP about that the other day, they didn't deny it (but didn't confirm it either). https://twitter.com/NeoXIII/status/725258307519320064" onclick="window.open(th...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Really disappointed about the delay, I got a group of friend fired up for DBGT. Will be there on the 6th anyway now, since we've booked a hotel closeby and were meant to go down to London anyway. Oh well!

Re: Rollercoaster Restaurant - 2016

I want to see a lid fall off on the loop and someone's chicken dinner ending up on their head. Then I will be impressed :lol If I remember correctly, the very first dishes in Europapark didn't quite make the loop and fell down...:D In other news, just booked a table for June, really looking forward...

Unfortunately I can't be there on the 7th, as I already promised to go to a birthday party on that date.
I'll be at TP on the 6th though, so if people are already hanging around on that day! :)

Also need to know how long the ERT will be, as I need to book a taxi back to Stoke station afterwards. Last bus from the resort will be at 18:39, and I don't want to miss out too early. :)

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

Went last Saturday to pick up my MAP for this Saturday and went on Galactica four times that day. I had a lovely time, the staff was super friendly and helpful and the entire atmosphere was amazing. It wasn't too busy and as Andy Mc just said, VR probably still need to catch up to the mainstream for...

Not sure if anyone has spotted it, but AT has removed the blur from all the screens again. Every bit that contains "get corrected" is still missing, but other than that everything else is back! :)

They went from "the world's first fully dedicated VR rollercoaster" to "the universe's first fully dedicated VR rollercoaster". AT is upping their game it seems! ;)

Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

How busy will it be on the 8th of April? Am I right that the local schools will be back by then? Yes, according to Staffordshire council the students are back in school starting on the 6th of April. :) http://www.staffordshire.gov.uk/education/schoolsandcolleges/termdates/home.aspx" onclick="window...

Did anyone had luck with the 12p promo they did just this morning?
I've been on the website since 9:30, but for some reason they opened up the form before 10AM and it wouldn't work at all! Quite disappointed about that! :(

Re: Alton Towers Opening Day Reviews

Spontaneously went yesterday to the park, and it was rather quiet on the Sunday. Didn't make it to the park until 12:30, but still managed to do all the coasters aside of Air/Galactica (for obvious reasons). The longest we had to wait was probably at The Smiler, and even that was "only" ar...
