Last year i went to Europa Park and the year before Thorpe so its been a few years. I thought the mazes were £10 last time! Anyway i have been told that you get a hotel fastpass instead of ERT. Has anyone had this and know what it includes? We only get to do a theme park once a year as a family reunion from around the country and we try and do as much as we can. We are doing Alton overnight and then Blackpool!
Please Note: There will be no Early Ride Time during Scarefest.
Instead, guests staying in the Alton Towers Hotel, Splash Landings Hotel or the Enchanted Village will get one fastrack ride on Nemesis, Oblivion, Runaway Mine Train OR Duel.
Or, guests staying in the CBeebies Land Hotel will get fastrack on 3 rides which can be used at any time during the day. The choice is from the following; 1 ride on either Justin's House Pie-O-Matic Factory or In The Night Garden Magical Boat Ride, 1 ride on either Postman Pat Parcel Post or Go Jetters Vroomster Zoom and 1 ride on The Numtums Number-Go-Round.

I bought Platinum Fastrack twice last season, once for Fireworks and the other for Scarefest. The queues the major coasters were no longer than 20 minutes (longer queues on The Smiler and Rita), but most of the attractions were walk on or a 5> minute wait. During Fireworks the fastrack queues were a bit longer, but Fastrack guarantees your wait to be at LEAST half the advertised wait time. I think it'd be worth the money so you can maximise your night rides on Wicker Man, TH13TEEN and The Smiler, but take into account I'd imagine the queues, in general, this Scarefest will most likely be much longer than previous years, due to Wicker Man's opening as well as a fairly popular season on park. But in my opinion, I'd say it's worth cashing out for especially if you're only there for one day. Hope you have a great day!
