    Welcome to the forum @John C

    I visited American Adventure once, you are not missing much, I wasn't impressed with the rides, but the concept was good though.

    I was a young lad when I visited the American Adventure. Don't remember much of it.

    Thanks for the welcome guys. My memories of the American Adventure are a bit hazy because I only went a couple of times and my last visit was pushing 30 years ago :fearscream:. My most vivid memory was riding their boomerang coaster 'The Missile' which lives on at Pleasurewood Hills. A couple of years ago I took my one and only visit to Pleasurewood Hills just to ride that coaster again. It was very nostalgic!

    Hey everyone! Decided to make an account after lurking for a while!
    I just actually returned home today from introducing a friend to Alton Towers for their first time too. I'm looking forward to talking here and there on here when I can!

    Thanks @Alsty and @skyscraper! I will probably make a trip report of how it all went, but we all had a fantastic time overall and one of the best visits I've ever had there in my life.

    Hey everyone!

    So I'm not exactly new, I've been a TS member from the very beginning, but I've been away for a looong time, so I'm new to most of you!

    I took a break from theme parking after 5 years of working for Merlin and kind of falling out of love with them, and now, after settling into my dream job elsewhere, I feel ready to come back into the world of the enthusiast. I've always been a massive Towers fan from a very young age, and have easily visited a hundred times or more...but haven't been for a proper trip in perhaps 6 years! But now I'm ready to return

    It'll be great to get to know all you new faces, and if you're coming to the north meet up in Blackpool, I'll see you there!

    Cheers everyone, after not visiting a theme park for maybe 10 years(!) I'm visiting two in two months, which has led to my inner nerd coming back out to play - very excited to see how different Alton is to when I was a young teenager and to get back on Nemmy as well as trying Th13teen, Smiler and most of all WM.
