    hey Orn - I go on ANYTHING! I am a real ride King! However, the only thing that really makes me puke is that damn pirate boat - it gets me every time. Rita looks neat!

    http://www.alton-towers.co.uk/themepark/ride_rita.asp

    As far as days go, because of the journey it makes sense for me to stay over whichever days are chosen, so I am happy to either travel Fri or Sat and stay overnight.

    Whoever got paid to come up with that name is one lucky person, assuming they got paid.

    the first IS teh friday. Sunday is 3rd.

    two thing:

    How much would it be for the weekend? and? I may stay at that travel lodge or go home that day (unlikely)

    travel lodge would be alright for me, but getting there from 12 miels away is a bit of a situation

    not to try to pressure anyone, but if people intend to stay overnight at the 'economy' Travelodge, then they better book fairly swiftly, with this kind of weather and time of year that hotel will likely fill quickly.

    Can we confirm which night everyone is staying over please all....Friday or Sat?

    I would like to book asap as I know if you dont book in advance you will end up sleeping on the rides (not a bad idea of course, but.....)
