Here you can discuss all aspects about the meet, including travel arrangements, and evening plans. Please see this topic
if you plan to attend.
Only a few days to go until the meet, it's still not too late, we really hope you join us.
Here are a few more details for you:Arrival:
Its opening day and we want to make sure you are one of the first to experience ‘The Smiler
', for those of you who have access to ERT we will be meeting at:
- 8:30 - 8:45am under the Corkscrews in the entrance plaza.
We will enter the park as soon as the gates are open, so if you are late or can’t make that time you will need to call or message a team member to find out exactly where we are, and catch up with the group. Please see the contact information below.
For later arrivals, and those without access to ERT, there will then be an additional meeting time of:
- 11.00 - 11:15am, outside ‘The Fried Chicken Co.’ (in X-Sector).
As above, if you miss the time slot, then call or message a contact to find out exactly where we are.The Plan:
Firstly we will head over to X-Sector for some ride take-overs, starting with ‘The Smiler’!
Everyone will then have the opportunity to split into smaller groups for lunch, and have some free time to ride whatever you fancy. If you don’t want to split from the main group you certainly don’t have to. Don’t worry about feeling isolated absolutely no-one will be left out, or forgotten about!
We will then re-group at 3.45 – 4:00pm in Forbidden Valley by ‘[email protected]’
. Everyone can grab a drink or snack from here while we wait for others so it doesn’t matter if you’re early. We will then do some ride takeovers around the Forbidden Valley area until the end of the day, ride close is currently 5:30pm.
After the park closes we are planning to have a few drinks and an evening meal in ether in the Alton Towers Hotel, or a local pub. If you are interested, just let us know on the day. Everyone is welcome to join in, but please be aware, there will be a decidedly more "adult" humor and alcoholic theme to the evening, and so may not be suitable for younger members.Points of Contact:Chris-TTAdzBen-TT

See you all soon
