    What theme park's entrance is your favourite?

    For me, the parks with the best entrances are: •Islands of Adventure ('The Adventure Begins/Lives On' 🥺 Also the music is great) •Alton Towers (I absolutely love the entrance music here and Towers Street always gets me excited) •PortAventura World (Mediterranìa is a brilliant and beautiful...

    Alton Towers and Thorpe Park Rumoured To Get Lego Themed Areas For 2020

    Now I may not have physical links or evidence (cause I am not on this closed FB group where it was spotted) but there was a rumour from a post on a closed Facebook group for Merlin Passholders, that Cloud Cuckoo Land and Angry Birds Land will be transformed into Lego themed areas for the 2020...

    What Do We Expect To Be Announced For 2019 Halloween Events?

    One thing that has been bugging me is what could be changed for theme park halloween events, such as Alton Towers Scarefest, Thorpe Park Fright Nights, Halloween Haunts, Halloween Horror Nights, Six Flags Fright Fest, etc. What would you see change? What do you want to see added or removed?

    Alton Towers Dungeon

    I think this merits its own topic now rather than a page or two in the WFT Merlin thread. These posters have appeared around the park: (Credit TTSP) I think we can safely say this will be in the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory building and utilise the boat ride. Whether they will also...

    Alton Towers (Scarefest | October 2018)

    Part 1 – Day 1 (Saturday 13th October) So, after five long and exhausting hours travelling by car to get to Alton Towers, we finally arrived at around 2:30pm, and upon entering the theme park, as was expected, we were greeted by a heightened security presence due to it being the dreaded...

    Alton Towers (September 2018)

    So, I was at Alton Towers yesterday, the 1st September. It was, to be honest, quite a spontaneous visit that we'd only planned the night before due to us having been given free tickets earlier in the year. The Towers We set off travelling at about 6:30am. There wasn't an awful lot of traffic...

    Alton Towers 2nd September 2018

    Hi guys. Sorry to bore you all with another of my trip reports, but my family and I set off for Alton Towers today. We used our tickets left over from our trip 2 weeks ago, and we arrived at around 10am. We were met by quite a busy car park, so we got out of our car and headed to the park. We...

    First coaster trip in England! Blackpool, Alton, Thorpe, Chessington 18'

    For whatever reasons, I never visited English amusement parks until this year, even though coasters across the Channel - especially Alton's - had my interest ever since I became an enthusiast back in 2005. But with the additions of both Icon and Wicker Man and the opportunity to join fellow...

    Should Oblivion at Alton Towers receive floorless trains?

    Most of the other B&M Dive Coasters in the world (except for G5 at Janfusun Fancyworld in Taiwan - a mirror image of Oblivion at Alton Towers) have floorless trains, and SheiKra at Busch Gardens received them in 2007. After 20 years of operation at Alton Towers, is it finally time for Oblivion...

    Rides that really disappointed you.

    As I was watching videos on the GP's take on Alton Towers' SW8 (which I didn't find much on), I wondered; Is this coaster actually going to be as cool and exciting as we think it will be? We know how Mystic Timbers turned out, great ride with a cool story but an absolutely crap shed that...

    If Nemesis never existed what would be the UK's #1 coaster?

    Before you start saying "it's not my number one UK coaster", good for you, I'm thrilled for you. That's not what this topic is about. Generally speaking, Nemesis is regarded as the top cred in the UK. It features heavily in many goons Top Tens, it wins polls and it was, urgh, here comes that...

    Dumb park restrictions

    So I was looking through some articles about Alton Towers and came across the park's sound restriction. I know sound restrictions aren't dumb, and I always knew the park had a height and sound restriction, but the reasoning for the sound restriction was straight up stupid. In 2002, a couple...

    Interesting track & scenery usage and combos.

    I read somewhere that the track on Nemesis is supposed to act as "tie-down rope" for the Nemesis beast. Which is what the station and many other parts of scenery are supposed to represent. I haven't seen that kind of combination before and it makes me think if there are other parks that do the...

    Nemesis vs. Nemesis Inferno

    Which ride do you like more? Nemesis (Alton Towers) or Nemesis (Thorpe Park)?

    What are your theories/thoughts on Alton Towers' SW8?

    There's been a lot of talk about the SW8 coaster Alton Towers is opening in their 2018 season. People have said it could be a GCI woodie, which seems unlikely because one of the blueprint photos showed what appeared to be a heartline/360 roll. I don't recall ever seeing a GCI coaster do an...
