    2016: The Smiler Reopening

    In random Smiler related news today I witnessed a lost phone charger hanging from a net above the queue line. Deffo a first for me, who on earth takes takes a phone charger onto a ride to begin with . Was an amusing end to a great day, I reported the issue incase someone tried to pull it down...

    Maybe have to start calling sub species SSEG to avoid confusion :confused:

    Scarefest 2016

    Personally I would like to see a new storyline for TOTT, however most unlikely.

    Scarefest 2016

    Seen on Screamscape a post from TT Facebook where a source has said there will be a new maze for 2016 and TOTT will return. I would have thought both of last year's new mazes would return this year with a few enhancements. Sub Species definitely deserves another year. Hopefully we will find out...

    Galactica: General Discussion

    It's currently showing 70 minutes! All I can think is that it must be running at reduced capacity! The large amount of faff involved does affect the queues, but I havent seen it that bad for a few weeks. On my experience Ride Times is sometimes inaccurate, last time I went it showed Galactica at...

    Scarefest 2015

    The alien ending slightly let it down for me last year. Wasn't very impressed with the alien crab creature at the end. A staff member at the time told me it was an animatronic, but I still doubt it was!

    Scarefest 2015

    I'm pleased Sub Species won this award. I really enjoyed this maze. Got to do it 4 times in a row with VIP, just me and my friend was quite intense was on my own for most of it. My favourite time was in a group in front of the 3 doors, everyone was taken in but me. Then the lights went off and...

    2016: General Discussion

    I know the closed rides were announced in March, but I believe the closed dates were announced earlier - not sure it was as early as December though. Does anyone know why Galactica has been flooding? I dont recall this happening with the Air station.

    2016: The Smiler Reopening

    Towers told me direct when I asked them that Smiler would only have 4 trains, 1 of which is brand new. I assumed the new train was already on site.

    The Smiler Incident - What Happened

    After having viewed the images of the train, I can only echo what others have said as in I knew how bad and serious the accident was - but never expected the train to be as mangled up as it was. Looking at it I would have expected the injuries to be far greater than they were - there appears to...

    Galactica: General Discussion

    It must have been this blog post i was referring to. It makes out it took the resort at least 2 years to develop it. https://www.altontowers.com/useful-info/blog/final-preparations-for-galactica/

    Galactica: General Discussion

    I'm sure I read somewhere they have been working on it for around 3 years.

    2016: General Discussion

    I assumed the Towers were closed as nobody bothered to go in and remove the Scare Mazes after Scarefest last year.

    Galactica: General Discussion

    Very disappointed with Galactica's performance today. I rode 5 times and had technical issues each time, 3 times the Galactica logo screen appeared behind me (you could see the top of it of you looked down beyond your view), the Galactica assistant walked off and the ride ser off before I could...

    Galactica: General Discussion

    That's quite annoying. The app was awful on my phone and ended up having to factory reset (not just to get the Galactica game working I might add) and it worked fine after that, it was of the first things reinstalled. have you tried forcing the app to stop in App Manager? As the application...

    Galactica: General Discussion

    So far I've won 4 Entry Tickets and 4 Galactica Cardboard headsets! I think it's purely random so cant offer any tips. I didnt win anything for quite a while, then won 4 in quick sucession. Havent had anything for a while again now though.

    2016: Air - Re-theme to VR Coaster - Galactica

    Thanks for these Russell. I've tried it with my Galactica photo too and it doesn't appear to do anything with that either.

    2016: Air - Re-theme to VR Coaster - Galactica

    The AR scanner is now enabled in the Galactica app. Can't remember seeing anything to scan over the weekend though. Seems quite buggy still as the scanner won't load at all on my phone. lol only works on my tablet (which I don't fancy carrying round the resort with me)

    2016: The Smiler Reopening

    Havent seen in mnetioned here, but The Smiler will be in 4 train operation when it returns (1 brand new one). I doubt it will make a huge amount of difference to the capacity.
