Makes sense. Single people would be the target market.
First two hour queue of the day at 8.50 am!!!
Don't panic, the local barbers queue looked very funny indeed.
Empty shop two doors along had a big sign, queue one hour from here.
Is it busy on park today for anyone who's there?
Not a good start today unfortunately, due to the weather conditions most of the coasters are closed. Out of Towers control though obviously. Hopefully the weather will improve soon!
It's a good job they have some flat rides to soak up the queues really!
Currently, everything in the thrill section barring Enterprise, Nemesis and Wicker Man is open, with queues ranging from 25 to 60 minutes!
Social media still want a refund though, shout out to the people who think it's feasible to put a giant tarpaulin over the big coasters so they don't get ice on the tracks.
The screens are back in Big Bob!
It would appear that the stage on Towers Street is due to house some sort of Sir Algenon-related show, as some of his friends are greeting guests on Towers Street now:
I think Darwin the Dodo and Eric the Yeti are Sir Algenon-related, anyway; do correct me if I’m wrong on that...
Alton Towers have just published a new blog and the downloadable version of this year's park map if anyone wants a closer look.
The blog mentions some further accessibility changes, especially in Gloomy Wood, which now has an accessible toilet and new ramps for Duel. Also the Garden Centre in the conservatories is remaining open for now.
If that is the version on the web its a bit weird, as states you are at Blade.
I really feel sorry for Alton Towers currently, they've clearly put a lot of effort into this year and then we get freak weather leading to late openings of many of the big rides and some not very happy people on social media.
Thankfully, the weather gremlins appear to be easing now, as aside from things that were supposed to be closed anyway (indoor attractions), the only rides currently closed are Mixtape and Nemesis!
Sorry for double posting, but we now have video footage of Roller Disco in operation courtesy of TowersStreet:
Not of fan of this one and the music its playing, I personally think the others look better.
In many ways we are all truly 'at Blade'... in our hearts.
But yes, that is the one they've got on the website, let's think of it as a glimpse behind the curtain. lol
I imagine this is because anyone with a Smiler duvet probably won't be sharing a bed with anyone
Does anyone know if there's staff spinning you on Roller Disco or if they're just letting it spin itself - if the latter is the case I might actually give them a go
From the video that TowersStreet put up on social media, there are no staff spinning you.
Now you've said that, maybe I will.
Although it also depends how fast the platform spins a well.
Watching the video again I've just noiced that they forgot to cover up the big "Waltzer" sign on the op cabin
