    To be fair, they've never really marketed the Stargazing Pods as themed accommodation. One of the selling points of them is "minimalistic theming" after all!

    No, edited in for humorous purposes. Although I wouldn't put it past Merlin to actually include it.

    Varney is lying his arse off. Self promoting, corporate lies.

    Yup. It's reached the point where you don't need photoshop to make Merlin look bad.

    Good! It's about time more people woke up and smelt the crap coffee Merlin have been pouring rather than lapping it up and accepting it as the norm.

    Perhaps the guys should post some negative comments to the website email address that would cause a bit of upset as they would have to reply with some answer that a person would have to write as it couldn't be automated.

    On another note does anyone know of data collected to say which rides get the most riders each year at the park to produce like a top 10 rides of alton towers, thorpe park, blackpool pleasure beach.

    Considering I got a generic "please can we call you" response when I emailed Nick I doubt it

    I don't think inundating Nick Varney with emails would be a great idea, it would only annoy Merlin into dismissing the case further and I believe Varney doesnt personally reply to 'his' email adress.

    In most cases he doesn't but generally nreplys from his office states he is aware, if your say someone praising Merlin as a company he has occasionally personally responded.

    No that's not Barry Island Pleasure Park, that's the Ripsaw site at Alton Towers, the UK's leading theme park.

    Not sure if this is the correct place to ask but do you guys know when the buses start running to towers? Seeing no timetables yet and I'm wondering if its a normal thing for buses to begin running right as the open season begins or not.
