    They have a 'limited edition' Nemesis 25 coin too. You'll see the coins in the queueline in the main gift shop on Towers Street. Same price as pin badges so not too bad really.

    Weather's looking bad for Friday and Saturday's event. Park might be less busy though.

    Edit: Saturday not looking too bad

    Had an email this afternoon to say standard season pass holders can now buy Dungeons tickets for £2.50. Must be popular.

    Pretty sure it's the same for Merlin Annual Passes, or the premium one at least. For Christ's sake just make it free!

    Think it’s been £2:50 for a while. They just never told anyone, only for those in the know. :rolleyes:

    When I went at the end of July, there was an offer on the app I spotted in the morning that said pass holders (not specific) could get in for £2.50 if they showed the app and paid at the Dungeon. By the afternoon when we wanted to do the Dungeon, the offer had gone off the app but they still honoured the price.

    Not a bad day on park today. Quite busy which was good to see and there was a good buzz around the place.

    Did the dungeons which was quite good but the boat ride is poor and has a lot more potential. The characters are very good though. I got picked out twice, by the judge and the torturer which my wife found most amusing.

    Not looking forward to the torrential rain tomorrow but we'll make the most of it. Just hope the rides are running.

    It’s nice to see them investing in little things like this. Hopefully they got footage of some of the other coasters too for future marketing etc.

    That Oblivion footage they still use from the 90s with riders clearly wearing their kappa tops and Adidas poppers desperately needs updating.

    I think it's fantastic, considering the tight space in and around Nemesis there are some pretty spectacular shots. All credit to the drone operator!

    Oblivon by drone would be good - having the drone looking backwards towards the craft as it climbs the hill then as it goes round the curve it moves around it to the back to follow it, then follows it into and through the tunnel.

    The amount of people queuing to meet JW today :eek:
    He must be sooo bored
    I guess he’s getting a nice fee from Towers
    And of corse Towers are ready with the payment terminals to sell merch that you can then get signed by him
    :sweatsmile:

    Saw them all queuing this morning, chuckled and had another ride on Nemesis which has been walk on all day. Fair play to towers, ops have been fantastic today despite the weather.
