With me its not so much what people say its just a group of people that I am unfortunate enough to be near in the lines and they are chavs. Horrible horrible group of people (And I am not painting them all with the same brush as I am sure some of them are good people) who have said so many stupid things that it is impossible for me to name a single out a comment made by one of them.

Yeah many a time I have heard weird noises like that coming from a chav. They seem to think making weird noises are hillarious but it just irratates the berjeezers out of most. Quite possibly that is what they are going for.

"Is this as bad as the Air one". :x

Every time I go on the Skyride I'm usually in a gondola with at least one person who spends the whole time complaining about how scared they are about the height. Either shut up or walk. You want to make the point to them that it's not that they hate the Skyride, it's that they hate the Skyride less than they hate walking.

When Alton Towers' Facebook page writes:

Trivia Thursday - Can you identify the Alton Towers Roller coaster which will be plunging 200 feet everyday from next Saturday?

Image


200ft? ARRRRGGGGGGGGG!!!!!! :x

Unless they've secretly extended the drop by 20ft over closed season... false advertising!!! :lol:


Edit: It'll probably be somewhere in their T&C's that they can do that and NOBODY CAN STOP THEM, MWAHAHAHAHAHAAAAaaaaaa........

When Nemesis Sub-Terra was known as Nemesis What Lies Beneath, my friend asked if it was under Nemesis. I just stared at him, and then I said no.

I'm guilty of this  :lol:.

Thing is, when your group of friends wants to use the skyride and you don't, it's just awkward to meet them 20 minutes later so I just put up, hold on really tightly to the handrail and just look at my camera or phone. Anything to take my mind of the height.

People who call Nemesis, Rameses.  :anger:
1. Expedition Everest 2. Hollywood Tower of Terror 3.Superman De Acero 4. Katun and Nemesis 6. OzIris 7. Blue Fire 8. Black Mamba 9. Manta 10. Oblivion

When someone in your form says that if you get any free vouchers that you have to pay for some rides including Oblivion. -_-

I could... but for your own good, I don't think you'd want to hear it.

The constant comparisons between Rita and Furius Baco  :evil:

Also second the deaths one.

'You know a toddler fell out of Enterprise last week and died.' No I didn't know that. Maybe that's because its completely nonsense.

At Thorpe on Monday, just got off the train on Inferno and collecting my bag and a guy said to his mates, "There's loads of Nemises' but this is by far the best!

I just can't!
Next Trip: Alton Towers 16/17 October!
