Key To Winning HB Lesiure Games

Hey, So as ive had enough of on the odd occasion actually trying to win a cr*p toy and losing due to the classic tricks used for the HB leisure games, i thought this would be a good topic for staff, past staff and succesful punters to explain how to win some of the games and how the odds are stacked...

Re: Summer Events

Party in the park?

Alton Towers needs a major event for every season in my opinion.

Spring : Chocolate Towers - April
Summer : Party In The Park - June/July
Autumn : Scarefest -Sept/October
Winter : Festive Towers Dec/Jan

And build on them ever year

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Cinema?

I think a cinema would be perfect for Alton. A digital projector means the place could be run by 3 staff, someone selling tickets, someone manning a digital projector (meaning you can basically play DVDs, have live feeds for world cups, wimbeldon) and someone selling food etc. Id put it near the Con...

ALTON Towers and Madame Tussauds operator Merlin Entertainments said it hoped to benefit from families “staycationing” in favour of holidaying abroad as it posted a 20% leap in earnings. The group – the world’s second biggest attraction operator behind Walt Disney – saw visitor numbers rise 8% in 20...

TTF Exhibition Football Match

Hey, So after being invited to some odd group on facebook about football i thought, wouldnt it be fun to have a proper, jumpers for goal posts meet up at towers and have a kick a bout?

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

Thing is we know the theme of this ride is its buit on a crypt, unless this "Nightwatchmen" has something to do with it this seems unrelated. This piece of ground to me looks like at the bottom of Ug Land behind where Ug Swinger was. And so you know in the 2nd video the guy has a cap on, j...

Re: The Future of the Blackhole Tent

A random idea that came into my head yesterday for what to do with the tent. So there is a new entrance at the bottom smaller section of the tent with a small cattle pen queue outside the building. You enter the queue just too the right of the exit hole for Oblivion. The queueline entrance consists ...

Re: Duel: General Discussion

Or just rip the whole thing out and put a Premier Indoor LIM Launched coaster in there, add a new part too the building outside so you queue outside through GW. Theme it around an old church/sect/cult based at the towers, group of people who worshipped the Hex tree. Go in a mine car/esque thing to e...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon Six Part Three

To be fair the major parts of the ride construction wise is the station, and the trough for the helix, thats it. The rest is pretty standard construction, and access into the forest part. Apart from that theres nothing too major there! I imagine it will go up quicker than we expect. I personally bas...
