Good Afternoon all of you wonderful people!    ;) I'm very excited to officially announce plans for our Alton Towers & Waterpark TPM Meet 2016!  :D The date of the event is the weekend of Saturday 25th - Sunday 26th June 2016 but as usual you decide the date! 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 the Tower Nerds/ Street community 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.


This event will also be introducing a new game for the meets called 'Knockout.' I believe it will be in the same league as Spooning & Empire which have proved extremely popular. (Yes I said it, I'm comparing it to that standard - shoot me :o ) There are also a number of activities we will be doing too over the weekend so vote of your intentions on what you wish to partake in :)


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 phone or text so we can arrange to meet you. 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!

Yay, to what the heck is still open. Maybe I'll just spend the whole day eating away in the new restaurant :P

Don't have a problem with either date so far, so should be able to make both atm.

Have no preference on the water park tbh, but voted the Saturday afternoon as I expect that'll be the best time to go. Wouldn't say no to Treetop quest tbh, considering I've never done it.

I should be free both weekends. I will try and find us somewhere interesting to go in the saturday evening again. My car will also be available for any of you coming up by train who want ferrying around from station to travellodge/travellodgeto towers etc.


Oh god, I've just remembered that place we went to at the 2014 meet, with the Inferno wings :lol:

The votes have been counted and the date for this meet will be held on the weekend of 25th-26th June 2016


I have also booked a couple of family rooms at the newcastle-under-lyme travelodge as per tradition for night life purposes (and party kebab shop) so if for those who want a bed, you have one :)

Based on other voting requirements on the afternoon of Saturday 25th June 2016 we will go to the waterpark followed by the Crazy Golf at the end of the day. 


For those interested in treetops we will do this too which could be before the waterpark or maybe done on the Sunday around lunch time :)


See you there :)
