Re: Runaway Mine Train Staff

The woman in the cabin over the tannoy shouting 'Chou-Choo' was quite amusing in just the way she was saying it. LMAO I can't believe this is still going. We went a few weeks ago and there was some woman doing it early on in the morning, but none of the other staff were. I remember thinking oh my g...

Re: Runaway Mine Train Staff

Sigh, well my apoligies for the specific reference to staff members. It had relevance as she was the one saying it. Regardless, i went with friends recently, which theme park enthusiasts they arent, but even they could see funny side of this ridiculous catchphrase announced by hardly over vealous st...

Re: Six Flags Files for Chapter 11

Shame, and odd considering how UK parks are having an even better season than normal! I think its because of different cultures because as a lot of americans go on vacation in the US anyway, not many of the UK do and are staying in the UK now more than ever. So the US parks had the national populati...

Re: Runaway Mine Train Staff

I actually found them all really annoying! Had a brief conversation with one of the operators, female, red hair? im sure she was from Cheadle or Leek was that backwards saying "choo choo" in perhaps the worlds most patronising voice. Found the whole experience a bit cringeworthy and tacky ...

Re: Paying for parking?

You show me where Alton Towers plant thousands of trees, advertise the staff bus service, and directly put the money back into the park and ill show you a liar. I remember back in 2006 hearing a senior member of management stating that they get £2m a year or there abouts for doing sweet f.a. And the...

Re: Barbed Wire!

As has been said, traps are not allowed but clearly marked barbed wire isnt.

The barbed wire at Alton im pretty sure isnt clearly marked, and its not hard to find an easy route over or under anyway away from such deterrents :)

Re: Barclays Premier League: 2008/09 Season

Next Year :) Shall see you all next year! Saw the last game at Arsenal today and i do wonder if James Beattie takes everything seriously enough, i dont think hes a 110% involved like the other players. The Arsenal fans barely sung for the entire game where was less than 3000 stokies in a 60,000+ sea...

Re: Alton Towers bans high heels on kids

PR Stunt! :( I thought we had gotten rid of Barnes and his antics?! Seems like it wasnt him after all and the PR team are going wild again. Make a quality product and sell that not some made up story. Regardless the B&Ms have arrows in the back of the seats which show where people over 1.4m sit ...

Re: Security at Alton

Theres loads of places to go into the Towers including a public footpath which Alton have tried to block off with trees. The security at towers is pretty good considering, they have the numberplate reader when you enter the park through security. Theres also over i imagine 50 cameras watching the pa...
