Thinking of attending my first event since April 2016! It's been too long!

Just one question, I think I know the answer but it's worth a shot....

Is there any way at all that season pass holders can take advantage of the bring a friend for £15 offer when attending the event. These tickets need to be collected at the park so whilst the ticket offices have been opening at about 9am this season, there is always a chance that they might not.

Many thanks and looks like a great lineup :)

As we won’t be entering the park via the main entrance, you would miss the morning welcome, check-in and possibly the Nemesis ERT session.

You would be more than welcome to join us upon your arrival in the park :)

Look forward to seeing you all again!

Usually at our events there is a real mix of ages so I'm sure you won't feel out of place. This event has a real sense of community about it so I'm sure that you will make new friends throughout the day and enjoy the social side of the event in the late afternoon.

I'm 18 now, however I've been going since I was 14. Although a lot of people are a bit older, you'll be more than welcome and you will have a great time just having a laugh with everyone :)

Sorry for a double post, I think it'd be a great idea if everyone attending the event wore Hawaiian shirts to the event, would make for quite the site :lol

I’m thinking of coming on my own, does anyone else do this? I don’t really know anyone so I’m a bit nervous. (Also this would be my first time attending an event like this)

I went on my own to the one last month at Thorpe and was in a similar situation. I enjoyed myself enough to be coming up to Alton for this one :).

People are very friendly, and you'll find most age groups covered. You'll no doubt make friends, especially during the craziness of the ERTs, or when we clog up queue systems, or inadvertently break rides!
