hi,
i went to alton towers 2 days in a raw last week. their best attraction called the oblivion was not running the first day. when called the help line, i was told that it would definitely run the next day. but it didnt.

:roll: Beat me to it lol

They all have similar clauses anyway as there's always one ride or something broken down or closed for maintenance etc so they'll constantly be giving out refunds

thanks guys thats what i thought.

by the way, i thought the attractions would be much better than that. the rides are really short.

all my life i had dreamt of going on a real roller coaster...

do i really have to go to the US to experience the "fast/crazy/upside down" things?

Big one at Blackpool and the Grand National are probably the closest thing to a proper roller coaster in this country

We don't tend to build the US style coasters in this country do we?

Not strictly a Roller Coaster, but Stealth at Thorpe Park is great - particularly if you liked Oblivion at Alton Towers. Thorpe has about the best white knuckle rides in UK nowadays but, otherwise, it's a dump. Far too many 17/18 year old chavs there. :x

hey the Big One looks great!
so why all the good theme parks in the UK are up in north anyway?
and why the train tickets in this country cost SOOOOO MUCH money? last year i wanted a return ticket for stoke-on-trent(only 1h30m from london) they quoted me £235! its just crazy
