    When you get into the park on your schools annual trip to alton towers and everyone who knows me says "Andrew you know Alton towers how do you get to..." And I could tell them exactly without thinking about it. :oops:

    Follow up from this:
    So, this week was a week on from this, and I was in this class again. Someone said to me "ok, so I know you probably do, but Leah, have you heard that Alton towers is haunted?" Begin long and pointless discussion. "The person who died on corkscrew is the ghost that haunts Alton towers"
    "I wouldn't go there, it's not safe"
    "Is the smiler open yet?"
    "Have you ever been on air? My restraints came of once on the lift hill and I had to hold on the whole way round"

    By the end of the lesson...
    :banghead:

    Sounds like the whole 7 hour bus journey from our school. People telling me how someone broke their arm on oblivion because they hit the edge of the hole. And that you can't put your hinds up on Rita for the same reason. :rolleyes:

    I usually pick a normal park one up and then one for scarefest and the fireworks as well. Just to add to my collection :D

    I look at them when I'm in the queues. Just to see things like blade not being on there. Also to just look at at home, so I can imagine being there. Wow... I've just realised how addicted I am.

    I hate it when people lie about the rides going wrong. "I hit my leg of the floor when I was on nemesis" "13 stoped half was down the drop for an hour" "my restraints came of on oblivion"

    A message to people who say this...

    Sometimes I play the confused map game. It quite simple, see two or three people looking confused studying a map. Stand off to the side so they dont see you, Get the map out and wait for one to say their want to go.
    Then walk into their view as you turn your map around and around, before saying sod it screw it up and head off in the direction they need to go.
    100 point if they follow you. :D

    I'm sometimes a bit naughty if I overhear lost peoples conversations. Say they're looking for nemesis and we're near towers street I'll loudly say to the person I'm next to ooh let's do nemesis first and point to the x-sector :D

    I am a bit jealous of the people who have to use maps,
    the excitement of being some where new,
    the thrill of experiencing things for the first time,
    The Alton Towers Magic

    Now on park everything is just same same same, no more magic, just the thrill of the rides.:(

    What about when your in the blade queue and the people in front of you say their waiting for nemesis.

    You wonder weather or not to say anything.

    Really, your jealous of the people who pay £50, turn up late, try to get round the park with pushchair, go straight for spinball, pay £90 for fastracks...

    I could keep going for ages...


    But yes, I know what you mean. This is why I can't wait for sw8

    Also overherd someone today totalling about Alton towers. They were talking about "that ride that goes up about 300 meters slowly then drops down into that big hole."

    Yeah 300 metres - 280 then they're right. The big one's 65 metres and stealths 62. Oblivions a baby compared to them, but I still think the old ones are the best :)
