    I bought one it was used about 20 time before I used it on a very windy day at Cosford air show. one of the stays detached, which was understandable. still usable after a trip into my workshop.

    Tbh, even a decent umbrella wouldn't survive Cosford air show on some years. It's a great day to go to towers because it's always really quiet every year :D

    Sort of related to this, with the big 6 resin, is nemesis actually on it. It looks like galactica is on twice.

    Also, found this . Shows most of the new merchandise.

    Noticed that this year towers have started doing merchandise bundles. Looks like they are MAP holders only, and change throughout the year (correct me if I'm wrong here)

    Some of its alright. Was given one of them as a present today. Has some nice stuff in it. Oblivion bag, the 2016 ATR mug (noticeably missing the smiler), 3d smiler notebook, nemesis rock, ATR keyring, galactica bear, and an ATR pen set. Can take images of what was included if anyone wants to see but im sure most people have seen it already. Apparently it didn't cost too much (was a gift so wouldn't know).

    I made an amazing discovery on Friday. They now have the Choo Choo shirts in adult sizes in the RMT shop.

    These would be a lot nicer if it wasn't for the tacky looking blue and red strings holding them to the key ring. It makes them look like something you would win from a 2p machine. :)

    Personally I'm a big fan of the pens they do, I use them at school all the time. On my most recent visit I purchased a Galactica Pen (Just one of the standard style ones) I can get about 10 pens for £1 anywhere else so I do expect them to be good quality but sadly after 3 days of use the logo rubbed of and ink ran out. Debating wether to tweet them or not! Haha!

    maybe you should- pens shouldn't run out that fast, however cheap/expensive they are!

    A quick pic in a tweet wouldn't hurt, they need to learn not to cut corners on the newer stuff as most of it is of lower quality recently.

    Alton Towers sent me two replacement pens, one tweet and a few emails later! Got to say the customer service was great! Haha!

    that doesn't explain why they were planning to sack loads of staff, though.
