Re: Staff Uniform

My worry is, could you imagine trying to give off a professional attitude when dealing with an issue as a member of staff when dressed up as one of Michael Schumachers pit crew when working on Rita for example?

Re: Could The Towers Ever Become The Hotel Itself ?

If it means anything Trentham awakes has an old manor and they were at one point on about doing it all up back to it's former state to be a 5 star hotel.

This new coaster is going to be something amazing i think, sort of on the same terms as Vliegende Hollander (effects wise) but obviously more horrifying and gory. If we get the people we have working on it too be able to do as they wish, it should be damn good! (i hope anyways!) Even though my inter...

Just incase it hasn't been said, the Ropers are now not taking merlin to court, as Alton Towers has such a strong defence case.

Tips for spinball: If you gain ERT at 9, USE IT! It's quiet possibly the shortest wait you'll have for the ride during the day. Do not ride between 10A.M & 1P.M as this is the most busiest time of all. At some point between 1:30 and 3 the queue drops down quiet a bit before picking up again towa...
