On my ScareMazing review I wrote something like"These events are going to get bigger,better and more popular".
Was i right? Indeed I was [email protected]
has been the biggest and best TT event so far.
And I am so glad I was a part of it.
TT Team you are all amazing! A big massive Thank You and pat on the back comes from me and John to all of you.
The time and effort that each of you,must have put in to make this event the success it was is commendable.
Not only for all you do on the actual day,but the build up to it as well. From keeping us all guessing,with the countdown teasers,right up to the [email protected]
announcement. You are all a credit to the site.
Now for the actual day itself.
Started in the Splash Hotel conference room,with many greetings of friends old and now some more new ones too.
Early morning drinks were plenty,and bowls of sweets too. Coffee and a sugar rush before park opens,what more could you want..
Introductions were given by each member of the team,all of which gave us all an interesting fact about themselves. Everyone was also given a new coloured TT badge. The colour of the representing the team member you would ring in the event of issues or emergencies or just to meet up again later on. Good idea TT.
The Woodland Walk then gave everyone the opportunity to catch up with people met before or chat to some of the newbies and help them feel more comfortable.
The extra early ride time on Nemesis was brilliant. Opened early especially for TT,everyone took their chance to ride as many times as possible. I'm sure most had at least 4 rides.
The rest of the day on park was fantastic as usual,many TT ride take overs and lots of fun had by everyone.
Having endured the cold and the odd heavy shower,we made our way to the meeting point for the John Wardley Q and A session.
In the Towers Suite,there was a big screen showing forum members pictures of Nemesis,as the forum topic had requested. I noticed a couple of mine on there,so thanks TT.
There was also a free TT car sticker on everyone's chair to take home as a momentous of the day. There were also [email protected]
key rings available for £2 if you wanted one(see pic below)
John was introduced to the group,but before the Q and A he was presented with,a crystal decanter and goblet on behalf of the TT team. Nice touch TT,John seemed genuinely moved by your gift.
The Q and A commenced to a rapturous applause and was extremely informative and interesting. Thanks John.
The video will make very good viewing,for those who did not attend the meet and the fans who just want to relive the moment over again.
John giving his time at the end for photos and book signings was a very nice gesture on his behalf.
The Nemesis birthday cake looked amazing and tasted great too..
Socialising with both team and forum members in the Splash Bar at the end of the day was brilliant. I staggered back to the room at 02:45 I believe. Taking with me some fantastic memories of a brilliant day.
Me and John can't say THANK YOU enough to everyone we met,spent time with and made friends with. You are all great to be with.
Last but not least a massive Thanks goes to AltonTowers. We all love the place and without your cooperation none of the above would be possible
