Personally, i can't be bothered with those free hosting sites anymore cus it just takes too long to upload and stuff. I can still send it but i'd rather send it directly through a p2p program such as soulseek (slsk.org). If anyone's interested just drop me a pm and we'll sort something out.


I've still got the video and it's possibly the best Nemesis video available. I'll happily upload or send it to any of the team if they wish to view it and consider it's suitability for TT.

:D

On the way into the towers we saw a sign hidden stating that due to low light conditions the towers will close at 4pm. Well this sign had a rather old AT logo at the top. :)

Theres also a disused queueline at the back of Ugland, behind Soak-A-Saurus. You have to get on that path that starts at the back of Ug Swingers and leads to the little shop and queueline board outside the front of the towers.
If you climb through the bushes you will actualy see the wooden queueline, some of its fallen to bits but part of it remains with over grown shrubs where the tarmac would of once been. I dont know which ride it was for, either Enterprise or something like that when it was in Ugland :? :? :?

I'll try to think of some more places, i like topics like this :D

Ive scanned in two from my sisters visit. This first one is from the entrance plaza which is still rather magical and i do really like thos flag poles. I really liked the "crookedness" of it all, like the wonky guttering and things, could really improve that though. This second picture, I mean the little sign in the corner. Very magical I thought, thats the kindof thing i like to see.

http://links.pictures.aol.com/pic?id=07 ... Ig=&size=t

I don;t know how well these photos will turn out, I used AOL, if anyone can tell me a better service and how to use it, please to pm. Unless they're fine, in which case, great!

Edit: the second one on imageshack http://img254.imageshack.us/img254/3470 ... rk28ew.jpg now I've just got to find the first. Tell me how it turns out. :wink:

'Welcome to the Magical World of Alton Towers.' is the standard script for answering the phone at the AT call centre. I've heard it on no less than 5 occassions now.

Doesn't It look uber fresh in that picture? I really think the logo of nemesis with the purple back ground is really very magical. It longs to be acompanied with ITHOMK. But I had a bright idea that still proves alton to be that little bit more magical. I compared Spinballs themeing in my head to the ideas of whirlwhid and dragons fury and imediatly it seemed darker and more purple, but still not really good enough. The same happened with Rita and stealth.
