If Alton Towers don't enforce, to their full power, their own no smoking rule, then smokers, including myself, can get away with it. They need to make it clear upon entering the park where the designated smoking areas are, provide ash trays, and not the bins they use. Just because I am a smoker, does not mean I should have to put up with smelling rubbish. They could also do some announcement in queue lines, letting people know the rule.
Occasionally if people are seen to be smoking in the queue (especially on a busy day) The ride operator comes on the speaker and states people cannot smoke along with saying the no camera's on ride thing. At oblivion once he did it every 5-10 mins. they should have something like that on a 20 minute cycle so to not annoy people but still let people be reminded to not do it. c
