Alton Towers 02/04/13
« on: April 02, 2013, 08:35:40 PM »
Well its been a while since we have visited Britain's Premier Park.. :tongue_smilie: It has changed quite a lot in the 3 or 4 years since we last visited..

We had purchased these Merlin Premium passes, very good value and lots of perks.. :thumbup1:

So we left Blackpool at 8.30am and reached Alton Towers at just got 10.00am 97 miles from start to finish..I love my Audi it grows wings from time to time.. :cool:



I realised that leaving my coat at home was such a bad move.As I was freezing my knackers off  :w00t:

The old retired legend of a ride The Corkscrew greeted us..




Such a pretty park..





Into The Dark Forest to ride Rita and Thirteen.. :thumbup:



Chris being cool at the point launch.. :sneaky2:



Louise and Charlotte having some sort of seizure..!!!!!  ;)





The Sanctuary..Well this absolutely freaked me out..!



Live actors get up close to you and in your face, seriously scary..
Its a Mental Asylum,you are led in a line holding the other person by the shoulders in front of you, its dark and at times confined..Actors pop up with make up and blood all over them, they scream into your face, you are then led into the bedrooms and kitchen etc, it does go on for quite a while,and you have nowhere to escape too..!







This actor briefs you about the do's and dont's





The New ride..The Smiler.. :thumbup1:













A big thank you to Alton Towers for allowing me to take these pictures of the new ride being constructed.. :thumbup1:




Through Gloomy Wood in Search of Nemesis.. :w00t: :w00t:















Yikes..!!!!  :w00t:





This was good, its random drop tower.. :tongue_smilie:




Oh we Found Nemesis.. :thumbup:












Still a good ride after 19 years.. :thumbup1:



We plan to return this Friday to complete all the rides..weather dependant.. :rolleyes:

Hope you enjoyed reading and sharing with you my pictures from Alton Towers.. :tongue:

Shows how out of touch i am with the theme park scene that i wasn't even aware AT were constructing
a new ride! (BPB take note :P)

Surely it's not been 3-4 years since you last visited the park, Peter?

As ever, thanks for the report & photos. Appreciated.
