    Avoid the 31st! Super busy - busier than the height of summer on many occasions. As above, I'm pretty sure its the first time in many years I've been in Nemesis' extended queline.

    As in the 22nd, sorry for not making that clear. So around £26 each for foos oughta be enough?

    Thanks for the reply!
    1. Yeah, we're going on the 24th, just checked today:rolleyes::D.
    2. By "walk on", I assume you mean relatively short queues/ques/cues :confused:, I'm a new member so not really familiar with the lingo.
    3. I suppose you're right there, but is there a usb format that they offer?
    4. Thought so, cheers.
    5. I'll bear that in mind, thanks.
    6. We'll be sure to try it then, haha.
    7. Can you just describe what a pop badge is, and how the whole swapping process goes?
    8. We were just thinking about wearing a skeleton desgin top, if I mention putting face paint on we'll be waking up at 6 haha

    Pop badges are plastic badges that push together and can be put on something like a lanyard (the lanyard goes between the 2 halves of the pop badge)

    Walk on means that there is no queue (for example, on nemesis last week I walked all the way into the loading bays without queueing. I'm not sure about USB's, but if you buy a physical photo of any kind, you get a free digital download through picsolve. This is one of the special scarefest pop badges my brother collected:

    How do you get your first pop badges? I wouldn't mind a few but don't have any to start with!

    As always, I've made time to visit Towers during Scarefest and I was pretty impressed, I thought the scare zones were alright, they're more daft than scary in all honesty, but I think the same as ToTT in truth.

    I've posted elsewhere that I think ToTT needs to be put out of its misery, it's the same old story and maze every season, it's too predictable now. I like the idea of it, but it needs to be changed for next year, new story, new props, more scares and better interaction from the actors than "boo".

    I didn't bother with Sub Species, although I enjoyed it last year, the person I was with didn't fancy doing it so we did ToTT and the Altonville mine maze. I thought the latter was good, the only issue I had with it was the ending was far too weak, but I am not going to give anything away so I'll just leave that there and finish with a link to a video I did in one of the scare zones;

    Hi all, been a long time member on here but don't post too much nowadays thanks to work taking up most of my spare time. Some of you might remember me from years back. Anyway, me and a couple of friends are going to Towers on Saturday (first visit all season!) and we're going all in and dressing up. Was wondering how many people tend to dress up nowadays?

    I shall be there with 19 others tomorrow on our yearly work outing to Scarefest. Really looking forward to it as there's a noobie here this year which I love, it's great taking people around the park and them experiencing rides and mazes for the first time. :D

    Anyone on park today would agree that there was a mass amount of chavs (turning into Thorpe park :D) roaming around, lots of police and security. Also what was all the little white (polystyrene??) bits all around the paths surrounding the towers.

    No doubt that select bunch of..... people.... destroyed some of the large prizes you get from the pay to play attractions - it is not uncommon to see the tiny beads all over the ground at Towers.

    Yes, today was the wholly unexpected, albeit dreaded, traveller day. As normal, a few were quite aggressive towards other guests and staff, however most just kept themselves to themselves. Big groups crowding in the usual areas (Towers archway, etc.), however not as many as have been seen before. It will be interesting to see whether they turn up again this weekend.

    Indeed, I thought it was snowing!!
