Anyone know how busy Alton would be on the 8/9 of September? That's the first weekend everyone's back at school.

I did reply briefly in the Shoutbox, but I would recommend checking out ridetimes.co.uk on the weekend following the Easter holidays. This may give you a rough guide of what to expect. Obviously, it will be hard to say for sure, but being September, I'd expect queues of 45-60 minutes for the top attractions. Weekends will be busy throughout the year, then again, some may be holding off for Scarefest :)

Hope this helps :)

What are we thinking for next week in the week? Relatively quiet?

I’d imagine so.

From watching RideTimes since the Easter holidays finished, Wicker Man has peaked at around 60 minutes early in the day but then goes down from anywhere from walk-on to 45 minutes. Galactica has occasionally generated a queue due to VR faff but most things have been 10 minutes or less.

I hope it’s like that next week as I’m there Monday & Tuesday. Remember the park is closed on Wednesday :)

Cheers Dan! I think we've narrowed it down to Tuesday and I'm already excited - first trip in a couple of years!

Hello Im going to Blackpool Pleasure Beach on Monday 4th June and I notice that the park is only open for six hours. Is this enough time to get around the park? I'm aware that Icon will have just opened two weeks before.
