    You know your addicted to Alton towers When this happens:

    Your at school, in maths, and one person was on the school trip to towers the on Saturday, and says what rides they went on. When they get round to oblivion, they say this "we had just left the station, and the person sat on the ends' restraints came up." Accidentally, automatically, I started explaining oblivion safety protocols. Suddenly, I realized that everyone was staring at me with a blank expression, and that, instantly, everyone in there knew I was addicted to Alton towers. I was then subject to questions such as "how big is the park" "how many rides could I name (34)" "how many times does smiler turn". Then someone asked me where corkscrew was (they thought the site of the smiler) and I correct them. Then the person sat behind me said that corkscrew closed because someone died on it. This is VERY annoying, and I told them that no one has died at Alton towers. Then i was asked the train Capacity for all the rollercoasters. Now they all know that I am an enthusiast, and know a lot about "the world's saddest thing".

    Just spent the last few days avoiding everyone in that class, to avoid "the th13teen girl of the advert is the person who died on corkscrew" "Leah knows everything about Alton towers" "that's the most she's ever talked"

    So, got to put up with this next week... Lord of darkness impression???

    I've had my harness come up by 1 notch on Oblivion, Nemesis and Sonic a few times because they were so tight, so that person MAY of been telling the truth but unlikely.

    They said it happened when the ride stops for 3 seconds, and it emergency stoped there for 5 minutes until a ride ops walked up the stairs and pushed it back down so I did that unlikely

    No! Both related to @Leah's earlier post. Spent a good 10 minutes wondering whether those posts had somehow been moved from another topic though ;)
