Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

That actually makes a lot of sense! I guess not all schools allow their students to just go off independently, thank you!

Re: Fantasy Island

It's not the best marketing ever. Thorpe Park and Cedar Point are on islands, this park is on an old car park!

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019?

The Alton Towers customer service team did not mention any of this on the phone. They just said 'sorry, there are no offers on for schools'.
