Another rule that they didn't enforce, despite 'decent' folk obviously obeying and not bringing them. I saw loads of masks, full face included and lots of weapons too. I must have seen 100 different 'Lucilles.' Along with plastic guns, swords, knives etc. 

Yep this got on my nerves a lot. Its a fair enough rule and it just be enforced properly to ensure fairness.

I saw at least three people in full clown outfits with masks on, really creeped me out. (Not because of the clowns, because I couldn't see their face!). Fair enough, the actors being allowed to wear masks and carry fake weapons as it's their job but if there's a member of the GP wearing a mask, that just kind of unnerves everyone. Also, side note, if you didn't know that they didn't have roaming actors at Alton (excluding Galactica people) you might mistake them for a member of staff. They should be asked to leave their masks at the gates if you ask me. 
This is a local signature for local people, there's nothing for you here.

The problem with the mask rule is that people will always try and find a way around it. If a member of staff asks you to remove it, you could remove it and then put it back on again in a few minutes. It really does leave people with an unnerving feeling having people with masks on who aren't actors. The park could take on a stricter discipline of ejecting people but I really think it would cause more harm than help.


Also I visited scarefest 7 times over the 2018 Season and I never once saw the Galatica actors and only saw the pirate actors once. It was very badly done and would hope to see a bigger cast of actors or even the return of scare zones.

Good afternoon everyone, please forgive me if this is not the correct forum page for this but I have one of the original Swans from the Swan ride. I believe it to be in good structural condition but it is in need of cosmetic help.  So the big question is where do I sell it?  Is there a website for items like this?  Does it even have any value? A friend and I were going to put an outboard motor on it and cross the English Chanel to raise money for the RNLI, however, with both of us having ill health this never happened. Will be sad to see it go but it's big and in the way, so go it must.
Thanks  Russ

The other option is Gumtree or Facebook Marketplace.

I highly doubt it. They're not mentioned on the terms and conditions so I'd say no I'm afraid.

There isn't a pre-season Annual Pass Preview event at Alton Towers.
