Re: Rich people hire disabled people to beat queues at disney!!!!

Morally wrong, there is no question about it. In my opinion the way in which disabled passes work should change in all parks. Disabled guests should get something similar to a Queue Bot where they virtually have to queue a simular amount of time as the standard queueline before going through the exi...

Re: The Smiler opening day fiasco

The lack of communication across the park was awful, I can understand Alton Towers never invisioned such last minute problems with the ride, however there should be protocol in place where every member of staff is relaying the same information. Not every guest is a fan and knows where to look for ac...

Re: Official - The Smiler Opening Meet Thursday 23rd May – Discussion

It would be great to eat at one of the hotels afterwards, alternatively we could arrange a meal at a local pub restaurant. Who is interested in a meal at about 7pm on the Thursday? Some of us are staying at a Cottage in Ashbourne which is about 4 miles away as it works out much cheaper, if anyone ne...

At last we have a confirmed opening date for the biggest attraction in over a decade to join the line up of world class rollercoasters at Alton Towers! We realise this is very short notice and a week day, so not all members will be able to make it. For this reason we are extending this meetup over a...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Great pictures as always, TT! Must ask though, has MI7 changed his photography equipment lately? These latest pictures aren't quite as good as the old ones!  :lol: MI7 is required to fly 500ft higher when over 1000 people are directly below. With extra passengers on-board these photos were tak...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

MI7 flew to Bristol to pick a couple of us up for a flyover The Smiler, we landed and spent the day on park then flew home. Some amazing ground and aerial photos coming tonight!

Big shout out to MI7, he’s a legend!

I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who turned up, it was great to talk to all the new people, and see some old faces along on the meet too.

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Just supports are going up this week. Next week is when more track is scheduled to be installed, so should be a interesting week if weather is on the construction workers side.  8) Please keep in mind we are asked by Alton Towers management to hide anything that deviates from the original plans...
