Alton Towers/Camping Trip Review 2006


Recommended Posts

Well i just got home today from spending 4 Days, 3 Nights Camping and 2 Days at Alton Towers. 11 People including myself went on this trip and it will be a trip i will never forget.

 

First Day - It was raining but i was surprised that all the rides were open and nothing was closed. Pretty much all the rides you could literally walk on cause there were no queues.

 

Second Day - The weather had improved from the day before but this meant the park was much busier and the queues were longer today. This day we relaxed more because we pretty much got everything the day before.

 

Overall it was good two days at Alton Towers and I would do it again.

Funny, I always thought Rita was long for an Intamin rocket coaster. Hopefully everyone has as much fun on the Magic Mountain camping trip as you had on this one.

"Ripsaw" looks like it's been cut itself, needs a re-paint quickly.

 

I do like Alton Towers but it needs a woodie coaster, something like "Falken" or a small version of "Balder" which does not go above the tree line will do fine.

 

Any news on what the old Black Hole tent is going to be used for.
