    Thirteen vs Wicker Man; Battle of Alton Towers’ 1.2m Secret Weapons

    Hi guys. When talking about the Alton Towers Secret Weapons, the first to come to mind for many enthusiasts are the extreme behemoths with 1.4m height restrictions, like Nemesis, Oblivion and The Smiler. But an often forgotten group of Alton Towers’ Secret Weapons are the “family thrill” Secret...

    Alton Towers 16th April 2021

    Hi guys. After a theme park hiatus of many months due to the various lockdowns and restrictions, my parents and I were finally able to get back to a theme park today! And it was only natural that we would go to the UK theme park that we always start with; our favourite UK park, Alton Towers! We...

    Alton Towers Recreation

    With the parks being closed during Lockdown 3 I decided to finally get round to making a recreation in Planet Coaster. In the days when RCT3 was king, I used to do almost nothing but real life parks, but for some reason or another I find them more difficult to do in planet coaster, whether it's...

    Alton Towers 3rd September 2020

    Hi guys. We returned to Alton Towers today, 2 months after our last visit in July. I was hoping to get back on the rides that we didn’t get on last time, so I was looking forward to it. Prior to visiting, I had a feeling that Wicker Man might be shut, and this sadly turned out to be the case...

    Do you find The Smiler at Alton Towers rough?

    Hi guys. Yesterday, I visited Alton Towers and took a ride on The Smiler. I was batched in the front row and sat in an inner seat, which is always widely considered the smoothest seat you can get on the ride, however I must admit that I personally found it very rough. Most of the elements seemed...

    Alton Towers 12th July 2020

    Hi guys. Today was an exciting day; it was the day of my first post-lockdown theme park visit! The lucky park was Alton Towers; it just had to be! The very first theme park I visited and my comfortable favourite within the UK seemed like a pretty good place to welcome me back to theme parks...

    Rank the Alton Towers coasters

    Hi guys. I'm in a ranking kind of mood tonight, and a park particularly near and dear to me is Alton Towers. I'm honestly staggered that we don't already have an Alton Towers coaster ranking thread given that CF is a UK forum and many members have been to Alton Towers (in fact, I even could have...

    SW9 at Alton Towers

    I'm sure I created a topic on this when I first joined the site and it got locked, but since Wicker Man (SW8) is officially open, it can't possibly be too soon to start speculating as to what SW9 will be, and where it will go. Personally, I could see anything from a multi-launch coaster...

    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...

    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 (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...
