Wait, Muggleton is your real name and not a pen name? Then again, most people don't think my name is real either.

Really interesting, thanks Kelly! Have you been on the Smiler yet? I'm well overdue a trip to Alton Towers...

Hi Lauren! I have actually - I went in early July after the British Grand Prix (that was a speedy couple of days) It was....interesting. There is so much going on that its really hard to take it in. The queue was very very long so I didnt get a chance to go on it again (no early entry for it either). The line was a bit freaky with the 'ha ha ha' song trying to eat into your brain. I did enjoy it but its definitely one to do twice (or more) to really get all of the elements. Was a little bit rough too so make sure you brace your head properly.
Saw lots of queasy faces getting off while waiting to board :-)
