With February Half Terms’ brief part opening of the Theme Park over, and many enthusiast getting their Alton Towers fix after a turmoil of a closed season, the countdown now begins (with 24 days to go!) to the grand opening of the full theme park and rides on Saturday 26th March!

Traditionally TowersTimes is holding its second official meetup of the year on opening day, and so far it looks almost to be a record breaker – with 52 people signed up and hurridly counting down the days so far.

Our most successful meet to date was back in 2009 at Alton Towers Scarefest, with a record 58 members attending – but we’d love to smash that once again for the main opening weekend.

If you’ve never been along to a TowersTimes meetup and are thinking about joining us but are a little unsure – rest assured we have a plethora of different shapes and sizes of new people joining us – even more so at the next meet, so why not join in the discussion on our forums for the meetup and tag along, along with all the details and accomodation venue etc.

Despite the disappointing lack of a major new attraction this year, it’s set to be a fun, memorable and social time with everyone from TowersTimes onboard, and we can’t wait to get started with the 2011 main season!
