    It was truly very surreal walking around in the dark with noone around yesterday; towards the end of the evening we walked from Forbidden Valley to Mutiny Bay, only seeing another group by Katanga Canyon.

    Sorry [mention]AstroDan [/mention] , I think I deprived you of a back row ride on Nemesis.

    Started the day walking the Wicker Man queue alone, finished with a night ride with only a handful of people. Crazy.

    It looks as if the start time has been moved earlier next year, so I guess they could mean the rides open earlier, therefore park close will also be earlier. Guess it’s far too early for anything to be fully confirmed yet.

    You would be best contacting the Merlin Annual Pass team for that one. Hopefully they can send you out a replacement.

    Wish I'd stayed until the end on Sat reading these reports. Tbf I was bored of walking round the full queue lines.

    Nabbed a back row ride on Nemesis about 15 minutes after running the 10k which did very weird things to my body. Managed a few rides on the back row actually which is unheard of usually.

    Also I'd urge anyone considering going next year on a spectator ticket to at least book the 5K run. I was v nervous about my 10k due to my lack of training but it turned out there were plenty of others in the same boat who just wanted to challenge themselves.

    Anyone fancy a garden tour?
    8th, 9th, 15th & 16th December (Wednesday and Thursday when rides are shut) at noon or 2pm, meet at the Cbeebies Land portal, tours last 45 minutes!

    It’s free as well. Never thought I’d see the day when Merlin approve something that they don’t get any money for.

    Would be really cool actually. Nice idea by the park.

    They don't. This is 100% Alton Towers' own initiative. Nothing to do with M.
