RMT on ERT is one of first thoughts when I hear/think of the towers

Re: Tayto Park

As an irish person I can also weigh in on this, though the media focused on it most people I know and some papers have all stated that its a case of someone riding the coaster with an existing health condition, going off tangent RTE (Raidió Teilifís Éireann) actually showcased and were very positive...

Re: Fun Facts and Social Media

I'd actually completely forgotten about that, I'm not sure what it was called but something like Knights Challenge sounds familiar? If I remember rightly you had to pay about £4 to go in. We have a photo of where it once stood in our archives: http://www.towerstimes.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/12...

Re: Towers Loving Care

Looks like the facades of towers street are done with a good before and after set of pictures, still hoping for some more painting on nemesis but a good job here

Re: Towers Loving Care

New pictures of the shutters installed, makes you think about how long some areas went with being updated or given maintenance

Re: What did you ride on your first visit?

I remember being to small for nemesis or oblivion but riding RMT, Hex, Air, duel, Toyland tours and my favorite roller coaster at the time corkscrew.
Unfortunately I never did get a chance to ride the black hole though for some reason.

Re: SW8

This may be a bit off topic however I'm excited to see the themeing used for this coaster as there's definitely been an increase in effort when it comes to themeing in merlin parks and theme parks in general the past few years

Re: Towers Loving Care

Seeing nemises getting an interior paint makes me think they're also going to show an update of the other side of the station being finished after last year.

Re: Alton Towers: What Ever Happened to...?

Back before the park was owned by merlin there was a different halloween event unfortunately as I was very young I cant remember the name of it however I remember attending sometime between 2003-2005 and there being a show infront of the towers across the lake infront of a screen playing a hex style...
