Hi all, long time lurker but thought I could do with some friendly advice.
Basically My girlfriend and I both brought a Merlin annual pass during the January sale. Unfortunately we've now split up. I've yet to use my annual pass and she was the only person who was/would be willing to come to these attractions with me so now I have to go alone.
I'm considering going to Alton Towers this Sunday as I really want to try out the Sanctuary but I think I'm going to feel rather uncomfortable throughout the day. I know there are single rider queues I can use and I could use the "my friend is too scared to come with me..." whilst in the Sanctuary. Overall though, has anybody visited or regularly visits alone? What is the experience like and how can I make it an enjoyable day. I am quite a shy person. I may make this a regular thing when The Smiler opens as I only live a hour away.
We also planned a weekend in London to see Green Day soon and intended to use our passes to do all the attractions down there. I'll be doing that alone too but I think i'll be more comfortable looking around Madame Tussauds, the Eye and the Dungeons alone. Maybe she'll come around by then.
