Dates: Saturday & Sunday 6th/7th October 2018
Location: Alton Towers & Drayton Manor, UK
Time for the final event of our 30th anniversary celebrations and what a weekend it will be! I’m sure I don’t need to say why – but it does involve WOOOOOOD! Hence Loopathon has merged into WOODathon.
We will be starting the weekend at 09:00 on Saturday 6th October with a ONE HOUR exclusive ride session (ERS) on the UK’s newest woodie, WICKER MAN. It only took 20 years of campaigning but we finally got there. Following WICKER MAN is freetime and your chance to takeover rides like Nemesis, Smiler, Galactica, Sonic, Rita, Thi3teen, etc. Then at 12:30 we will all meet in the Corporate Hospitality Suite for an optional hot lunch (with licensed bar). Plus we will be joined my Management for a Q&A session. After lunch you are free to enjoy the park and be part of their Halloween Spooktacular, with four live shows. Plus if you dare, you can pre-book to experience their FOUR scare mazes: Project 42, The Welcoming, Sub Species and Altonville Mine Tours. Note: The mazes are an optional extra and are not part of WOODathon).
Then on Sunday 7th we will meet at 08:45 at Drayton Manor Park in Tamworth. The day will start with an ERS on the 200ft free falling Apocalypse. This is followed by a Maelstrom takeover and freetime so you can enjoy the many other delights in this fun family run park. An award winning buffet lunch in the PARK VIEW SUITE is included at 12:30 and the day ends with ERS’s on G-Force, Troublesome Trucks, and a bonus for our 30th - Shockwave. We then have our traditional Club season send off!
