Well I went off to visit a friend I met on the Minerva last year down in Wales. After spending a few days at her house we went up to Alton Towers for 2 days.
It’s been ages since I was last at Alton Towers and it has changed a lot. It was brilliant and it wasn’t really that busy on the thursday, which was odd as it was a lovely sunny day and very hot.
By the time we got to the hotel and our park tickets it was around midday. We went straight to the park and worked out way around the rides; we managed to do pretty much every ride on the thursday, although we left Th13teen, Sonic Spinball and Rita until the friday.
As we stayed in the Alton Towers hotel we got into the park an hour before everyone else on the friday morning, so we used this time to go on Sonic Spinball and then went and joined the queue for Th13teen ahead of everyone else.
So over the two days we did every ride except Oblivion – I didn’t fancy that, but Air and Nemesis are brilliant.
Th13teen has a lot of hype built up about it and while it was fun it really wasn’t that scary!
Unfortunately the good weather didn’t last until the Friday, it started pouring around midday so we returned to one of the hotels to have lunch and then drove back to Wales.
