Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

I'm too frustrated with the reduce open dates.  I can't see them having longer open days.  I would have thought that the gate numbers will be up due to SW8.  However there is more scarefest dates available.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

The service road running underneath the SW8 was briefly open on Saturday night.  According to the staff manning it, Jess and I was the very first guest to go through it.  I spoke to the same staff the following day and they said how lucky we were as they haven't been thought there themselfs. Enjoy t...

Re: Alton Towers - General Discussion

The last week in October (first few days in November) 2018 is half term week, kids are off school, hence why no closures Edit:  That's strange, I google the term dates at the start of this month and the internet was saying that the half term week was going to be 28th Oct to the 4th of Nov. looks...

Re: Scarefest

We've not purchased them yet. We were advised at time of booking that scarefest was included in the park tickets, like Thorpe park. We've arrived today to find we have to buy tickets! Hotel staff have said to go to ticket office when we go in park in the morning and they'll be able to sort us out. ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Most Rides will be open until 9 on the Friday (except certain rides like the sky ride, rapids etc.. which will close at dusk or sooner).  I was there last year on the Friday before half term and it was busier than expected, but then the travelling community did also turn up, which might not be the c...

Last year I did Colchester zoo Fright night on several days and the Halloween day itself was the quiet est of all their Fight nights, again the kid...
