Re: Food/Drink At The Towers

Did anyone try the all day food thing they did last year? It all seemed a bit too complicated to me  :? Was it value for money? I notice that they're doing food vouchers this year, although they've not released the prices yet. Not sure whether they will be worth it for MAP holders. Be interest...

Re: Food/Drink At The Towers

Woodcutters is delicious, tried it with my good food voucher last season. The BBQ (I think) chicken burger I had was amazing, fries were excellent... Would defiantly recommend.

Re: Local Accommodation

I would defiantly recommend the chained oak. It's a beautiful place to stay, the owners are really nice and being able to walk down to the chained oak itself from your room is awesome.

And you got mine. I do apologize for the rudeness though, had just finished a late 12hr shift, and wasn't in the best of moods. Don't take it personally.

Yes, the number of carers was changed this year to avoid having to split up families who may wish to ride together.


It was also changed so that in case of a malfunction the the ride, multiple carers can assist with the departure of the disabled person in question.

Re: Annual passes

I'm sorry, you get unlimited access to 30+ attractions, half price entry to international attractions, discounts all over the place, ERT at AT & 20% off the hotel, free parking & much more... but it isn't enough? You want more for your MAXIMUM of £192, less if you renew, or buy online, or do...

Re: Having a bad day

I went back in April, Oblivion was down most of my 2 days, and I didn't get to ride it, *Edit* Also it rained pretty much non-stop both days as well, should I complain about it? And try and get free tickets or some other compensation? No... I wasn't the only one in the park it affected, take it as i...

Re: Unfair Pricing for Disabled People

My sister is in a wheelchair, but she isn't wheelchair bound, she likes to get out and walk as well. Whenever we go to Alton Towers, she is able to get on all the rides. Most of the time we go as a family, I remember last time we went as a family it was 2011, there were reduced price tickets availab...

Re: What is so good about Nemesis???

Nemesis isn't the be all and end all of roller coasters, Swarm came the closest this year. I won't even get started on our friends in the US of A because most of that's on another level. Enlighten me on your point on American rollercoasters in comparison to Nemesis.  :) See now you've backed m...

Re: Annual pass quencher / Day quencher - Have I been mugged?

It is all about supply and demand, I'm pointing out that I have the demand for items and they can not supply it. If I was the manager of a park and guests were not able to buy items and I was loosing money in sales and if staff were not checking for drinks, then that would be one are to sort out to...

Meh, if this is what counts as news nowadays we must be in dark times indeed. I will say that Abbey Crouch isn't very attractive at all... You could park a bus between the gap in her teeth.

Re: 2 for 1 National Rail offer?

Hey there, I've researched this before and agree it isn't the clearest offer of all time. What you do is print off the 2 4 1 voucher, and present it with your train tickets for the same day that you are visiting. The tickets don't have to be from a specific place, or arrive at a specific place, any ...

Re: 40% off park tickets...

This has been up for what I believe to be the entire season so far, back in March I booked online for 40% off + ERT... I agree that it is excellent value for money.
