Good Afternoon all of you wonderful people!   ;) I'm very excited to officially announce plans for our Alton Towers & Waterpark TPM Meet 2014!   :D The date of the event is the weekend of Saturday 28th - Sunday 29th June 2014 as voted by 85% of you so a strong win! As you can see it's the whole weekend! Which gives you a choice - come on the Saturday, come on the Sunday or stay the whole weekend! Please take note if you plan to stay with us overnight, it will be your responsibility to book your own rooms and unfortunately if your under 18 we cannot help you with this! If you were to stay the night - under no circumstances will TPM get involved and take responsibility with how you stay overnight, as for the overnight section of the trip will be an over 18's event.. We will however like to see you during the day at the park Also this meet Towers Nerds are more than welcome to join us for the event. This is a fantastic opportunity to socialise with our northern counterparts and to show that the enthusiast community spreads further than one forum.

 

The Outline of the day/s will be as follows: 

 

Meet by the frog jumping fountains at 09:00 am just inside the entrance if you wish to take advantage of the park's ERTWe will hover for 5 minutes whilst everyone gets together but then going off for ERT, if by any chance you happen to miss this meet point due to travel arrangements/ Cannot participate in ERT or just plain lateness you can either a) phone or text so we can arrange to meet you or   B) meet up at the second meeting point later in the day. This first part of the morning we will make the most of the quiet park and churn out those rides. Once the park starts to fill up a little we will get to the Nemesis Egg outside Sub-Terra in Forbidden Valley, so if for whatever reason you could not get there for opening you can meet us at 10:30 am if you had not arranged to meet beforehand via phone. Please bear in mind we will leave without you if you are late as it’s not fair on time keepers! As members have found out! We will then continue visiting the attractions and it will be arranged beforehand that we will try our best to get on all the attractions.. I know not everyone will want to do some of the rides at Alton Towers. If you decide to not come on please be polite and wait for everyone to come off and chat to other members whilst you are waiting. Or go off and do another attraction as long as you’ll be back after the group has finished riding the attraction. Please respect other people’s wishes who wish to ride certain things that you yourself may not be too keen with. During the day, around half 1, we will stop for a bite to eat where you can go and eat where you like and we will arrange where to meet after everyone has finished eating. (Who knows we might all want to eat the same thing anyway   :P ) After lunch we will group together for the Official Group Photo for the meet and continue going round the park and riding the attractions people want to do until the park closes.   ^_^

 

I will be handing out my phone number for everyone who is attending the meet that day, should there be any problems. We aim to stay together as a group for the day, going from one activity to the next, enjoying getting to know people you share very similar interests with, the idea is to just go with the flow and enjoy the day with some awesome people. There will be many photo’s in the day being taken and the possibility of a few video clips. Whilst we cannot force you to stay with the group, it is the general purpose of these meets! You will have my number (and some of the senior teams) if you become split so by all means use it. The meets are a fantastic laugh and everyone is invited, even if you have never posted before or been to any kind of meet at all. If it's your first meet, I understand it can be nerve breaking - but we were all there at one point so know how it feels, please don't let this stop you from attending - Once there you'll be part of the group in no time! Just look at the past trips this year!

 

I will soon be posting up a separate post on possible accommodation locations which you can use to help you decide where to sleep (If your staying for the night.) If however you know where your going already by all means book it up when we confirm the dates this time next week. I know for example I will be staying at a Travelodge in Newcastle half hour away as it has some good night life around there  ;)

 

Once again, everyone will have my phone number so please use it on the day   :D If anyone has any issues or concerns or even nervous about coming, feel free to post here, or PM myself and I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you feel like my response is taking too long another member of the team will be more than happy to help. We will all try and help you out as much as we can.

 

Please PM me or post here to say if you’re attending. If you are bringing a mate along with you, please also include who they are so they are not known as ‘Plus 1.’ The events with TPM have been fantastic this year and this one will be no different!

Currently able to do the 7th & 8th and 28th & 29th June.

Plan to try and stay at hotel too, should be a great trip hopefully.

Edit- Would be extremely grateful if someone could get me a lift there, will pay you petrol money and buy you a drink too (if anything can be arranged).

Hey, that's what I said in the Blackpool meet thread! Using my tactics, eh? :P

I should hopefully be a yes for this :D It will feel so good to escape, have a (lovely) change of scenery and be back at my favourite UK park :wub: And of course, be reunited with my Alpini bar selling, trolley dolly son! ^_^

Damn. I can't make any of those dates due to exams and the 28th/29th weekend being when I'm meeting a friend to then pick up our Annual Passes on the 30th. On the plus side that does mean I should be able to make the next meet after this one depending on where it is and when XD Ahhh well, I am sure I will be in attendance for one soon! I am determined to do this one day :) Sounds like a fun trip and I hope lots of people can make it!

Typical. Can't do any of those weekends due to exams and being home the 28th/29th (which would normally be a good thing, but I'm only literally home for a few days in the period of 16 weeks, so I can't do that).

Had the 21st/22nd been an option, I may have had a chance! :P

To add to this - 16+ can book with parents consent (bring a note signed by them explicitly mentioning this). However can understand why it's 18+!!

Oh, and if you wanna do waterpark book early. It's sell-out almost every weekend which doesn't have split times, and this isn't a split time weekend.
