At a push we may see some small choices on sale like at the end of last season, mugs, tops, hoods. Nothing too mainline and quirky until the actually ride open I think.

right
:D
1) what's the story behind the "Ministry of joys"  objective behind The Smiler? the story says they want to make people Smile?! but that's not evil, to be honest that's nice! so what the twisted part of it? the hidden darker side behind their objective? because at the moment it sound like a nice ride which will make you happy?

and

2) Have you got any pictures or links to pictures of oblivion before and after the paint and some of the X-SECTOR as a whole. again before and after the upgrades?

and finally haha :D

3) I know they have been there ever since it opened but I have always wondered why are there pipes and all the entrance to oblivion and the X-cite? what the point and how do they fit into the theme of Oblivion?

thanks in advance haha :D
I'm ready to Smile!

You can use them any day you want,I don't buy the s*n but I found out from a friend the offer is SUN13 to redeem the 50% off

EDIT,I'm guessing you mean the s*n offer?

Apart from the normal Sonic the Hedgehog items in Towers Trading, do the park sell any actual Sonic Spinball merchandise? I'm sure they did but I'm not sure now! Just looking to add to my many AT ride merchandise collections!

Submission was running when we were in X-Sector but Enterprise was having.. Issues. Not sure if it opened later on though.

Just wondering if anyone knows where te national express coaches to alton towers go...preferably around Liverpool/Manchester area as that's where I'll probably get on. Also anyone know how long they take to get to the park?

I would say get the train to derby then the bus from there to the towers, look on AT's website for details of the bus service I'm sure it's on there somewhere.

Hopefully going to AT later this year, for the first time, :D and was wondering how long the single rider waiting times can be, to see whether it would be a worthwhile way to get the most out of my trip.

SRQ times can be hit and miss depending on how long he main queue is and the SRQ. Sometimes I have found in the past queuing longer then the main queue.

Still SBNO during February Half Term of this year. You can see it whilst going up the lift hill on Sonic Spinball, though a hideous metal fence has been put up to try and hide it.

OMG really where is it?
