Re: Alton Towers - Offers, Vouchers and Discounts

We are visiting on Sat 18th / Sunday 19th - my wife and I are both merlin annual passholders. We are taking 3 children with us (2 x aged 10 and 1 x aged 8). We are trying to work out the best way to purchase 2 day tickets for the kids. If we book in advance it is about £28 each for a two day ticket....

Re: Drinks

Shockingly, it's still £5 for a day, or £16 MAP for a year. How do they know if you had one from the day before? Or is it barcoded? They write a date on the capsule :)..... That way you can't just keep taking the same one bak as I did all last year :D well until they changed the capsules :/ Bugger,...

Planning a Trip 19-21st May

Hi All,

We have a trip planned, arriving on Sunday 19th and hoping for some nice weather we are going to take a picnic. I know you use to be able to hire a locker in Guest Services rather then having to carry it around all day, does anybody know if this is still the case and an idea of price?

Luke

Re: What is the real difference between Alton Towers Hotel ad Splash Landings

We stayed (me and the wife - no kids) in Splash Landings last year. And spent most of our evening time over in the Towers Hotel. Splash landings is nice for the kids whereas to me the Hotel was more refined and grown up. Our room had bunk beds - not sure if the hotel has the same. Yeah I agree. We ...

Re: 2013 Offers, Deals, Vouchers and Discounts

I have just tried the 50% off hotel voucher code that was in the Sun today SUN13 - it does seem to work on particular dates. It seems like usual they have allocated a certain number of rooms per night to be used with the promotion. It only seems to work online if you select 1 or 2 nights; i'm sure l...

Re: What ride's freak you out?

I love Rollercoasters and dark rides but I hate the feeling of being suspended upside down - I backed out of Ripsaw when my friends went on it and there is no way I was going on Submission! It is my personal goal this season to conquer my fears and ride Ripsaw & Submission I'd agree with you he...

Re: 2013 Season - What will You Ride First?

No right or wrong here just personal preference. I will hammer Nemmy at half term, oh how Iv'e missed her. Only ever been on Nemmy twice. bo...

Re: If You could bring back one past ride?

It would definitely have to be Toyland Tours!! So many great memories as a kid, it would have been fantastic to take my own children one day.

Sun promotion for 3 nights?

Hi There, I think the sun offer is only for a 2 night stay, so you best option would be the latter, and then ask if you can stay in the same room. :)
