“Unique” sleeping experience... it isn’t like you can get the same experience elsewhere for under half the price...

Re: Safari Lodges Development

I like the look of these, but I don’t like them as much as the Stargazing Pods. And Chessington doesn’t need more accommodation!

Re: Alton Towers Resort Future - General Discussion & Wishes

I agree with you Nickolai. I personally think the magic never went away, but if they could re add the SRQs and add at least 2 new flat rides, that would be good.

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

They look very nice, better than what I was expecting! Sure, there isn’t Europea-Park full-on theming, but at least they have character and they feel slightly magical.

That’s good, because someone could smuggle in real-life gun pellets in a toy gun, and that wouldn’t be the best!

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

The Smiler didn’t offer individual fast tracks when it first opened, so I’m thinking that will be the case for WM, too.

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

I really like the idea of a takeout breakfast. It saves time, reduces queues, and it sounds better then the cancelled burger vans. Also bed linen AND a round of golf? £88-£123 is quite a good deal for this accomo, given it's on the Towers site. What did you expect? Travelodge prices? This is Merlin ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

I agree there Justin. They look tacky, cheap, and not worth buying. I found a London Eye one at the London Eye shop, and it looks equally bad. Keep in mind this is all my opinion.

Re: ‘Stargazing Pods’ Accommodation Discussion

Maybe they named them Stargazing Pods
because 'Queuing for Everything Pods' doesn't roll off the tongue as easily.
Also Swarm Chris, those simulated view telescopes could be added, knowing Merlin. They love gimmicks as much as they love accommodation, sanctuaries and not adding flat rides.

Re: ‘Stargazing Pods’ Accommodation Discussion

But did they really need more accommodation tho?
I know it’s the budget end of the market these ‘pods’ are aimed for, but Splash Landings exists for that purpose.

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I rode Wicker Man for the first time on the 18th May. I queued for 45 minutes but it was well worth the wait. The queue line, as everybody else said, is very well themed, although it is a shame about the vandals. The pre show, I found a bit too loud and scary, but I have sensitive ears. However, it ...

Re: ‘Stargazing Pods’ Accommodation Discussion

I wouldn't be surprised if Towers abandoned this "Stargazing Pods" project and either put in more lodges or not put in any new accommodation at all.

It isn't like they need more accomo at the park.
Also 10th post for me yay

Re: Scariest moments at Alton Towers

My scariest experience at Alton Towers was in 2013.
I was petrified, and I mean PETRIFIED, by the Smiler’s theming. 
I was mostly afraid of the logo, and that marmalised lady on the marketing. I was only 8. 
Now I am a Smiler and MOJ fan.
