Well I think it's to do with American's keen eye for colour schemes.

Some good ideas. You have to remember though all of these would have to be vandal proof as any kind of screens could be scratched and seats ripped etc. However nice AT make it someone will try and wreck it. Hence why often things like the monorail are quite plain. How would you make these ideas vand...

Has to be Oblivion for me, like Kaycee said you can just lie back and relax. Air comes second for me. I always have air only on the first click. Being 6'4 most restraints are quite uncomfortable :cry: What are peoples heights? Do you find a ride uncomfortable because you're short or uncomfortable be...

As a money based company, you would expect them to try a bit harder in a way. Don't they make enough money already? Who the hell needs to ask so much just to do simple things like park your car and have a bite to eat. the profits they must make! Put a bit more money into the place for feck's sake. ...

We all have our frustrations, but I think it's important to focus on the positive sides of the park. Like the excellent selection of rides, the Stunning Grounds and Towers no other theme park in the world can even come close to this and the impeccable safety record of the park. I personally don't th...

Heard some funny recordings on the monorail today playing on the speakers. Telling people that the wearing of Corduoy was banned in the park for 'your own safety' anyone else here these funny announcements?

The BWrks is one of only three rides at Chessie worth going there for (the others being Vamp & Dagon's Fury). To do ANYTHING other than restore it would be blasphemy!

Black Buccaneer has to be added to this list along with Rattle Snake!

I am a bit of a stickler for spelling and grammar. Many signs dotted around the park have appalling spelling.

One for Nemesis says Dimentions instead of Dimensions. There are at least three other signs professionally designed and made, that have incorrect spelling.

Sloppy!!

EVERYONE knows that Bertie simply wasn't interested in Frisian - she was a right minger!.

It was Hildegarda that really tickled the old boy's fancy

I can't believe you actually did a search on Google Images for a minging cow and a horny cow!

Excellent photos. Thanks for posting them on here. Brought back some super memories. :D My biggest regret is that I have been to Alton Towers so many times in the past and didn't take any photos. :(

For me the Thunder Looper was the most thrilling ride I'd ever seen. The anticipation whilst in the queue line made the adrenaline rush through your veins, then you got into your seat and the lap bars seemed so inadequate for what you were about to experience. Then the launch just happened and blast...

On my last visit to Alton Towers last week, I went on the last ride of Hex of the day. I was completely alone, and I must say it is absolutely terrifying to be there all on your own. My friend wanted to get the last ride of Rita and I decided that I wanted to go on Hex. Watching the film on my own i...

The model is in this short video http://www.gapsring.co.uk/nemod.avi although it wasnt a working model!

It is a video but it requires divx player to show it.
