I've won nothing because well, most the prizes are rubbish! Plus I'd rather ride more rides! :D

Never won anything at any of the parks, let alone Towers.

Any ideas what the best ones to win a prize on are?

Yeah there's this amazing arcade machine where you insert 70p to play, and you press these buttons and win a Kitkat or a Yorkie bar or something, I'm well good at it! Won every time! ;)

No, I have not won any prizes, I just ride the rides all day. 8) Some prizes sound quite cool though. :)

Best way to win a huge prize is to have a party of LOTS of you and go to one of the role the ball up the ramp and make your donkey/dino/sheep/random object move from the left of teh stall to the right. If you fill the whole stand with people doing it you win one of the huge prizes. Since your group is all the players ONE of your group HAS to win.

I personally never win though as I am crud at those kind of things. I did once win a car in a bet with a mate, whilst waiting for Air but he never paid up, the git citing 'it wasn't a real bet'

I even loose on the machines that Tom is on about

I've 'won' an amount of cuddly toys thanks to the generous nature of those on ttf who seem to have a natural talent for the grabber machines.

I also 'won' a pirate spongebob in FV, Nick likes to think he won it for me, but it was all down to Tom really. :wink:

Oh and who can forget my amazing Huuuuuge Zippy who I became proud owner of on Corkscrew closing, a teddy who has been on Corkscrew twice, and even has his own certificate. :D He may not of entirely been 'won' though.. *cough*

Yes it seems like I myself don't win these things, I get lucky haha. But I can confirm that on my first ever visit in 2006, I won a brightly coloured Lizard..oh yeahhh.

We win all the time off the grabbing machines, there is a secret "knack" to it passed down from generation to generation :)

Ooo Ooo I won a purple dinosaur with green spots from the ...dinosaur... racing game. (Excuse my slack memory).

It was one of the proudest moments of my life, I beat them all, THEM ALL! And I never win anything! I named my dinosaur Lucky, and sported him round the park for the rest of my day. Good times indeed.
