Booked it at 12 midday today here :mrgreen: Can't wait, have been hoping like mad there would be something like this, as I missed out on the behind the scenes tours from years ago. I just hope it's a success and that the tours might become an annual feature again, to do other parts of the park #-o sorry resort.

Definitely up for this!
With 4 people £75 per night for B&B, evening meal, swimming, golf and all the rest is pretty good value.

I have a room booked with Hark, Kryn & Astrodan

All sorted this end.

It's either going to be me and vik in a room.
If the other 1 unconfirmed person gets back to me tonight with 100% it will be 3 in my room.

If it's 4, it will be BrettS, Vik, Islandar

Only me and vik are confirmed at the moment.

So still one open space to make it a 4 room. If not, just me and vik as he is confirmed.

Why don't you wait it out? You have a week on your reservation - don't jump to conclusions something might crop up.

I was humming and harring over this after reading about it, I'm a sucker for exclucive merchandise and certificates etc. But then I saw the price, no thank you! I may not get the chance to go behind the scenes and as furie says looks great but no way am I paying £150!

I was desperate to go on this, but like you guys even for what it is, it's extortionate, I wish they wouldn't alienate there most loyal visitors by putting the price so high.

Almost £400 for a short weekend break...

If you go down to the Towers today, you\'d better ride Th13teen. :P

In all honesty. If your sharing with 2 or 4 people. It's not so bad.

Your looking either £198 / £164 per person per night.

As AstroDan has said here: [url=http://forum.towerstimes.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=492289#p492289" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;]viewtopic.php?p=492289#p492289[/url]

For 2nights and whats included, it's actually a GOOD price. I myself, like most people are paying around the £140 - £170 mark for both nights.

It really is quite a good deal when you sit and think about it!
