The sounds/smells of Alton Towers

Sun Jun 30, 2013 6:56 pm

So i have decided it would be interesting to make a topic on your favorite smells/sounds at alton towers, these can range from the smell of an old hamburger on the floor to the sounds of people screaming... you can only list two options for each category... I will go first to start off  :D
  • Smells: Nemesis Station, Woodcutters Grill
  • Sounds: Ripsaws Squeak, Nemesis's Roar

On the dark side the smell of urine now reminds me of being at Alton Towers :| I'm not sure how I feel about that lol. On the light side hot donuts and popcorn take me right there!

Some of the smells of Duel are deliberately produced but I think some aren't, although they are quite freakish smells! I think the incidental smells are latex and MDF wood.

Oh and the one is Hex (octagon smell) is one of my favourite smells they use. Another I just remembered is this coconut slice I was eating the other day. I've never had coconut at a themepark (I actually don't usually like it) but it seemed to taste magical - mysterious.

Smells - Doughnuts and Hex's musky smell
Sounds - The Smiler and Rita
I went to OBLIVION and back, faced my own NEMESIS and it's origin. I flew through the AIR, I played with SONIC but was cursed with a HEX from the number THIRTEEN. I was the QUEEN OF SPEED but most of all I was a SMILER
