2018 General Discussion

Recommended Posts

Surprised we don't have a thread for this yet...

 

To kick this thread off (since opening times are being talked about elsewhere), it has been revealed that, as expected, the Annual Pass Day this year will be on Sunday 18th March.  Yay.

 

Use this thread for any discussion of the 2018 season generally (shock horror!)...

Anyone got any ideas when they are going to release the annual pass day tickets?  They've been saying "very soon" on their website for 10 days now!!

They don't normally release them till later in February if memory serves me correctly.  I'm sure that when they do release them they'll give a warning a couple of days before.

Still haven't heard from Towers regarding preview dates and that's all I'm interested in for now.

Are Towers doing a preview day this year?  They don't normally do Annual Pass previews, only staff and John Lewis usually.

There'll also be no Fastrack sold on the AP day.

 

In other news, parking now costs £7 per car this season.

 But fastrack is in operation for Hotel & VIP guests.

Fastrack is there for hotel guests, but that's only till 11am as per normal.  And the VIP holders will have little impact Fastrack-wise. :)

 

Forever the optimist eh Josh?

Optimistic but realistic too.  ;)

 

The VIP holders are too busy in the marquee enjoying their free dinner buffet and what have you to really bother with the rides.  On these days there's usually quite a lot about, but you don't really notice them..

I was parked by staff the majorly of the time I visited last year. 

Hmm, weird, on my visits I don't recall there being any parking staff and as a result cars were much more spread out around the car park.

I love rocking up at lunch time, slithering my way at speed through the stoney bit dodging bad parking and rude boys, to get onto the sweet sweet tarmac.

Same! And therefore not get stuck in a 45 minute queue trying to get to the barriers

Also, for one-time-only, join us in the marquee throughout the day for eXpo:\2018 – a celebration of the iconic X coaster! This unique event is exclusive to Annual Passholders and is the perfect chance to bid farewell to the coaster in its current form, as well as getting a sneak peek of what’s to come in 2018. 

 

Check out guest speakers, including Lead Creative John Burton, take advantage of rare photo opportunities and bask in the nostalgia of this awesome attraction. PLUS don’t forget to grab your limited edition pop badge to mark the occasion, available on a first come first served basis!
