Sorry, but Duel was better when it was just a normal Haunted House. Give me Tomb Blaster anyday.

That makes the two of us ;)Duel is a fun ride, it's got that bit of cheese that I love but I much prefered when it was just a haunted house. What I liked about it was that it was just what you would expect a traditional haunted house to have but now it's just another shoot em rides.Don't get me wrong I love Duel but Tomb Blaster wins for me, it's a more epic experience.

It's one of my favourite rides at Alton Towers too.Duel is definately better than Tomb Blaster, for a start, I think it's longer and much more entertaining. Infact, once, I rode Duel and didn't play the game - I just sat there and went round admiring the whole ride, purely because I find it that entertaining!Answer me this though: what is better out of Duel or Phantom Fantasia that used to be at Thorpe Park? Phantom Fantasia was excellent but Duel kicks ass I think.

Duel is great because you could almost say there are 2 rides to it! One is the laser ride where you don't notice all of the monsters then you can go on again and not shoot- A scarier and more fun option in my opinion :)

On Duel, Is every shot worth 100 points like Tomb Blaster?If so, I was happy beating the train with 25,900.90,300. You must have VERY strong hands Mark! (Read Correctly ;))I will actually dread now if you are ever on the same train as me! :)Lets Duel! :)

From experience, Duel has a LOT more targets and there's also yellow ones which are worth more. ( 200 or 500 or something along those lines.)Also the ride isn't longer in terms of time but I think it is in terms of track, therefore you go through more targets at a faster pace. You do always seem to score a LOT more points on Duel, even saying that 90000+ is an amazing score :)

Who got 1,200. :P Also, yellow targets are worth 1,000 points on Duel, green lights are worth 100. Not sure about Tomb Blaster. :P

(My friends gun was broken, hence the 1200 :P*)*And my unbeatable score :P

I did awfully the first time I rode Duel, the shooting makes my hands sore :) Its still a really fun ride though, the music is really catchy and its a really atmospheric ride, actually one of my favourites at Alton Towers.

I rarely get to visit Alton Towers and out of all the times I visited, I only ever went on Duel once about 6 years ago.I went on it a few weeks a go and it seriously kicks ass!!!The whole theme of the ride is amazing! I can't believe I am saying this, but I think it beats Tomb Blaster for me!I even went on it again and didn't shoot to admire the themes which is something I never do. I have never jumped on a shooting ride neither :PFor an amazing ride - I am very shocked of its short queues too.

I was pleasantly surprised by Duel earlier this week. It's obviously had quite a bit of attention as of late; I would say that every effect that's supposed to be there, is working.I noticed burst pipes smoking, audio working throughout the ride, smells pumping out where they should be and most of all the Skeleton Corridor working as it should be. As much as I'm bitter about Duel replacing the Haunted House, it's still a good ride.

Ah Duel: Live :P I don't care how many of the effects have been fixed at the moment, that ride becomes phenomenal at Halloween when those LED's and guns are switched off. :P
