Home and what a day!!!!! Rita, Nemesis and Stuff in general reports later on from people who attened.

Now for an idea batted around by myself, Wayne and Dan.

we were discussing the possibiltiy of doing a joint ATA/TTF meet up this year at some point. When we dont know yet but at some point. Nothing has been decided as of yet to if it will happen, we would just like to know what people thought of this idea and to see if it would be worth it.

If people are up for the idea, it would be an INDIVIDUAL one to the ttf ones. This was muted as an idea as we would like to bring the two communities together. We thought it was time that it was time to bury the hatchet between both forums. Not to merge but to just have days where the two communities join together for just a day out. there are members of both forums who are members of this and ata. I myself are one of them. We feel that it may ease the tention between both forums as at the end of the day, no matter of the back biting and bitching, we are here for the same thing: Theme parks. So what if one forum may be better than another, what happened to COMMUNITY spirit? We already have identified the people who we would identify who maybe possible trouble makers and it is just one day.

Please can we have peoples thoughts on this.

Back to today.

Today was possibly, in my eyes, better than the first meet up. There seemed to be a greater sence of achivment during this closed season than ever before.

Will do my full report later on.

yes had a great say, great to meet everyone, sorry had to dash off quick at 4.45, sister, who I brought with me phoned and said she was ready to go home, her & her friend were going out, needed about 3 hrs to get ready probably. so appologies to anyone I didnt say goodbye too.

Very impressed with the park, nice & clean, hope it stays that way, nemesis waterfalls working, oblivion mist working, even if the on ride photo's wernt, and HEX has become fantastic again, with all the effects working.

Cant remeber having so many goes of nemesis on one visit, had 3 goes when I arrived, before I met up with everyone, and a few more after that.

No waterfalls working on rapids though :? and got a soaking on the log flume :)

ok, thats all for now, til latersss.

Well, that can be added to the list of bitchings for 2006 :D
Sounds as if AT are starting to come for us and go away from the money, rather than stop spinabll for half a day while they fix the camera, they kept on! I remember hearing last year how they stopped air for 20-30 minutes just to make sure the cameras were switvched on!
This new management are listening, no hotel priority queues on Spinball, touch up on Nemmy and Oblivion!
God Bless Them!

Lets hope the next meetup, whenever that is, they keep this up!
