I am going to Alton Towers on Monday. Tell me about Alton Towers.
Definitely don't go with Kelis.
at the front. IT IS AWESOME.
Eh... Air made me feel like I was in the Human Centipede? People keep telling me I am crazy, but the position you get locked into is somewhat perverse.
I haven't been since Halloween 2007. Oblivion in the dark is fun.
After queueing for a fair while and arguing with some queue jumpers ('but our mate is there.... and we went to get a drink'), it was quite a big anti-climax.
Can't go wrong with Nemesis though, or Air.
if u do this with all ur mates u inevitably get on at the same time, but maybe not sitting next to each other...tho in my opinion that doesnt really matter.
this is if the single rider queue still exists...i havent been for three years
The only time I wouldn't recommend this is for the Sonic ride unless the main queue is absolutely ridiculous. We were getting on the ride within 5 minutes for most rides, and Nemesis you could get straight on. I went on the last bank holiday in May after a string of bank holidays. DID YOU KNOW: The park is often dead quiet (as it was for me) on bank holidays because everyone thinks it's going to be dead busy and gives it a miss. SECOND GUESS THOSE SECOND GUESSERS.
I took a day off school to go with my brother and his mates when I was about 13 around this exact time of the year.
I remember looking at one of the 'Average Queue Times' signs, and 2 minutes was the highest time. You walk up and get on. Your only wait is for the ride to come back.
The rides, in my opinion, are better than anything not only in the country but in the US. I like Air. Dunno if that makes me a girl.
it was good and the queues weren't too bad even for a weekend. The longest we queued up for anything was for the waterslide at the pool.
Best ride for me was Air; just because it feels so different to other roller coasters
Never mind your Disneyland bollocks, get on The Corkscrew (now gone I think). I was making some plans to go to it for bonfire night with a friend, MUM SAYS ITS SIMPLY MMMMMMMAGICAL
