    I’ll use the early ride time in 2014 if I can figure out a way to finance a trip to Alton Towers from Philadelphia, USA. As the owner of a roller coaster-based website, I had planned on visiting Alton Towers this spring but just discovered that my 40,000 avios on British Airways must be supplemented by carrier fees, taxes and surcharges in the amount of $692. Ouch! Anyway, it would be nice if The Smiler were included in this group.
