Alton Towers Photos *VERY PICTURE HEAVY*

Sat Feb 14, 2015 8:20 pm

After looking through the search I found there was no actual topic for just general Alton Towers photos. (If there is an existing one though, could someone on the team merge this into that topic as I can't find it).

This thread is just for any Alton Towers photos you have taken when at the park and want to share with the community.

My first set of 21 photos were taken on the 14th of February in the February Half Term Event.

The Octonauts coaster is finished and awaiting theming.

Image

An empty X Sector, a rare sight recently!

Image

The Twirling toadstool without the seats.

Image

Rita, with the cars in pieces for maintenance. Notice the front of the train in the centre of the photo.

Image

Again, notice the trains with the seats covered.

Thanks, I've been doing some amateur photography and the Towers seemed like the place to try doing some photos.

Great photos Jack! Just out of curiosity, what camera are you using?

I guess it must be pretty good if you can get Nemmy in motion without a blur :lol

Yes, I have no affiliation with Theme Park Nerds. To be honest, I reckon we just chose similar pictures to upload :D

Wow, I only just remember AT looking like that, it makes me feel like im ten years old again, when towers seemed so much more magical that it does today.

I miss how X Sector looked back then, I love the Smiler, I really do, however I feel that it completely ruined X Sector.

A few extra photos I got at Smilefest which are more general shots of Rita.

And finally, a picture of a duck in Dark Forest. Quack!

Next visit I will take more photos as I didn't on my visit yesterday. Expect more X-Sector photos than in previous posts.

I know this post has a lot of images, and I'm sorry for adding to the already bad loading times of this topic :)

At SmileFest a decided to take a ton of photos, I got around to editing a few of the better ones (for better or for worse :P) and these are the ones I am most pleased with :) (I'm still learning, so a lot of these aren't nearly as good as they could be :))
