Today Intamin have announced 4 new ride concepts. Hot Racer Firstly we have the Hot Racer, which is Intamin's take on the RMC single rail coaster. These compact dueling coasters look to be a good investment for parks with limited space, with one of the advertised layouts been dubbed as "The wor...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

Alton pin badges tend to retail for £4.50 per badge so £3 is good. 

If you're wanting more pin badges either buy them directly from the online shop, or just search "Alton Towers Pin Badge" on eBay.

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

Well that’s why individual theme park passes exist! It’s extremely fair what they are doing by adding on months. And if you don’t want to visit a SeaLife or Tussauds during the winter then that’s your own problem, not Merlin’s.

That's just because it's Thorpe Park, it never has an atmosphere and closed rides  :lol :lol

Re: The World of David Walliams - New for 2020

I think the inflatable arch is just to get people excited for the area, a bit of advertisement. If you look behind the archway you can see the actual entrance archway which is made up of books piled up on top of each other.

Re: Abandoned

Went to the abandoned toilet once. It was very abandoned and smashed up. As an abandoned toilet block should be.

Part of me thinks that the Nemesis extension queue never gets used because the queue is never long enough to warrant opening it... Just a wild guess.

Re: Ideas & Suggestions

I'd love to see some ride behind the scenes tours at Alton. The Gruffalo BTS and DBGT BTS are my 2 favourite exclusives that I have had with TTSP and I'd love to see them happen at Towers. As for ERT, my personal favourite is Oblivion so would love to see that next year. Not had Th13teen or Spinball...
