- I never rode the Swan Boats.
- I never rode the Splash Karts.
- I was given the chance to go to Alton Towers in 1998, but turned it down when I was told I'd have to go on all the big rides.


That's it pretty much, not exactly SHOCKING either. :lol:

I also saw TTF on a Meet, when they were at the Tavern in Merrie England. Me and Lewis took turns to walk through the Tavern so we could see TTF-ers...:oops:

But we are not stalkers.

I can't believe how many people haven't ridden Hex, or haven't ridden for years... it really is shockingly the most underrated ride at Towers. :( It's a masterpiece in my humble opinion, it's brilliant.
