    I was going to be happy over the Nemesis 25 pin but a Burger Kitchen one? Sign me right up

    I won't be happy until we see a Resort Box Office Complaints Queue pin.

    Personally, I think pins for the vending machines in queues would be pretty cool. And they could do retro badges for the ones that don't work anymore.

    Unsure if this is the correct thread for this but I found this Nemesis mug whilst I was out raiding charity shops for board games for the bank breaking total of 50p. Just wondering if anyone here has any idea what year it's from? Looks very 90s with the graphic design master class of align center>send to print.

    Is there a date on the bottom of the mug? The logo changed in 1999 so this will be between 1994 and 1998.

    That Alton Towers logo stopped being used in ‘93 so I wouldn’t be surprised if the mug was from ‘94 season when things were still being changed over to the new logo.

    No date on the bottom unfortunately. Thanks for the info, I didn't realise the logo change was that long ago!

    Hmmm, interesting. So it could potentially be from Nemesis' first year of Ops. That would be pretty cool as that was the first time I ever went to Towers on a school trip and all I could afford was a novelty oversized pencil :D

    It's a nice piece of memorabilia for sure, and 50p is a bargain!

    On the subject of old Nemesis merch, my brother bought a can of Nemesis fizzy drink during it's opening year and it sat unopened in his room for years and years after. I will find out if he's still got it!

    Mike J would probably be the better youtuber for that, given that he is also a coaster geek. Maybe they could join forces for the video?

    If anyone sees Galactica Umbrellas back on sale give us a shout. Didn’t see any at the weekend and had a unhappy child last year when there was a downpour and they all sold out very quickly.

    I haven’t seen the umbrellas this season. I did wonder why they’re still selling VR crap though

    I expect they will be selling some limited edition “slightly” used Samsung phones for sale too

    Pretty tempting! Had some unexpected news last week which means every extra quid will come in handy and that 6000% profit practically makes me Alan Sugar.

    They need to shift that stock. They should call them a special collectors edition and print '1 of 200' on the box to improve sales.

    A good thing about digging out the old shed is I've found some old Alton Towers tat lying around.

    Mostly old maps but found a nice pin badge :)
