Re: 2015-2019: Possible Developments?

For flat rides, would one of the Zamperla Disk'O style flat rides be something that could be installed? They seem quite popular and the ones I've ridden have been suited to families.

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Can I ask, this seems like the right place, does anyone know any artists who have done work of the structure of the Wickerman? I did an art project based on the wicker man concept and for my related work I need to do an artist study based on an artist who's drawn similar things so I can show what I'...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

I went to the park a few weeks ago, and my father who I went with was so appalled at the staggered opening times and the fact The Smiler was closed all day that he wrote a letter of complaint to the park. In a response email they sent us 2 free tickets to the park, and 2 solo fasttrack passes to all...

I was actually referring to times of the day, apologies for not being specific I'm at the park as we speak and would like to ride it while I'm here Ah, no worries :) It may get a little quieter as the day goes on, as the majority of people will head straight to it. You could always do the rest of t...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Is there any sort of time when Wicker Man is likely to be quietest?

Re: Funny Things You've Overheard at Parks

When I was at Scarefest, I went on the skyride. There was a woman who looked at SW8s construction site and then turned to her child and said "Oh look, that must be the new scare maze!"
Afterwards the child complained how scary and high up the next section of the skyride looked

Re: SW8 Speculation and General Discussion

Has anyone figured out what the text says above the "be chosen" button? Following the fire theme and the name that alton towers have had trademarked with the logo i think i may have cracked the cipher.... On The Welcoming website? As far as I'm aware it says Feed The Flames and someone fi...

Re: Scarefest

Have you booked your mazes yet? If so, what time? Because that would affect the time I'd recommend you to arrive.  I believe I booked The Welcoming for 18:15 For The Welcoming I'd recommend you just turned up at your time slot, as queues don't really form to get your ticket scanned, so it won't aff...

Just to be awkward, but I see people keep saying the Mutiny Bay has too many attractions, what are they? To me there just is Battle Galleons, Sharkbait Reef and the old teacups.

There is that ship that spins around while moving on a track. can't remember its name though

Re: Scarefest

Ah alright, thanks!
Its my first time going round any of the mazes as its my first time going with someone who would do it with me
Also apologies if I ask too many questions here
Also is it true that you get into the Scare zone just by buying a ticket
