Yes basically. They mentioned something about them being the protectors.
I'm still sceptical though, I reckon it's probably just an enthusiast with a bit too much time on there hands.

Maybe it's a TTFer, and they're all laughing at us right now!

Sam? After the Maude de Neville episode I wouldn't be half suprised :lol:

Seriously though, I think that the profile "Wraith Spirit" is the most likely to be acccurate, as he seems to never break character and speak in a similar manner throughout, the responses seem crafted. The other Wraiths on there such as Wraith Forest and Dark Wraith are more fake however, posting casual messages with little character as wel as spewing crap over eachothers wall posts. Not to mention one of them actually tried to add me themself, having obviously been seen on the ain Alton wall.

I can't comment on whether any are properly official, but Wraith Spirit certainlyb seems the best thought out, as well as the ony one i'm friends with :D

That was also the first Wraith to appear although the fact that GothicAngel seems to be talking to them whenever he’s online I expect it’s a fan even if Alton asked them to do it. Would Alton really employ a 24 hour Facebooker?

Forest was created surprisingly soon after so I assumed it was the same person.

These Wraiths Facebook accounts are quite funny.

They could be real or not, I'm not too sure. Could just be an enthusiast having a laugh or as said even someone on TTF just laughing at everyone. Either way it's free publicity for Alton and it's not hurting anyone so it's a good thing for everyone really.

Also Congrats to El Patricko for getting through to Boot Camp!

Not sure if anyone else has noticed but if you look down the posts the Wraith Spirits first friend appears to be Shawn Sanbrooke :shock:

That isn't how Facebook works. The person who is at the top of the friends list is usually the one that was active on Facebook most recently. You'll find it changes everytime you look...usually.

1) It simply confirms that Alton Towers know about the Wraiths and doesn’t have to mean they are official.

2) MARIO! (Nice Firefox backdrop)

I completely missed that!

Someone in their marketing agency must be getting a bollocking for not thoroughly checking the copy before approving the send!

Am I the only one surprised this isn't Shawn Sanbrooke?

If anything it proves it I fake, staff would not be allowed to gy involved in this kind of thug surely? I would have thought only marketing staff would be involved, and actualy be the wraiths, not adding them as friends, and ceratiny not hotel staff.

Woooo hold it there...

I don't think its briliant to dedicate the next 10 pages to the shawn sanbrooke conspiracy theory that he did this page.
I know his record isn't the cleanist but he has no record of stuff like this.
I am not defending him particularly, i just think your been so typical to point the finger at him. But im not disagreeing either but when you think long term somethings never proove as bad.

Hey think back to early 2009 when them videos appeared on youtube of Dr henry rockwell and the night watchmen, this could be the same people but who knows.
After a couple of weeks they stopped uploading videos so i think they eventually found something else to do. So i doubt this will continue much lnger if its a ethusiast.
