Can anyone tell me what time the sky ride opens? We’re planning on heading to the back of the park at opening but I was wondering if the sky ride opens at 9.30am when the park opens, or 10 am when the rides open?
Thanks

 I think that the sky ride opens at 11am

I have tickets to visit this coming Friday, but having checked the forecast it looks really windy, especially wind gusts. Does anyone know the maximum wind levels the rides can operate in?

It's gust up to around 30mph on certain rides, usually affects The Smiler and Oblivion

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Not only are we MAP pass holders, but we are also pass holders for a few of our local Zoo's.  Even though we are shielding, so going out for us is not an option, but when checking availability for when we do go out, it seems like all pass holders slots have been taken up.  You can understand the lim...

Re: Express parking for the fireworks?

The fireworks is usually a sell out with all the regular parking overflowing to capacity, hence why the adjacent fields are opened up for additional parking.  Also there is less parking in the express area during the fireworks event as additional space is also required for disabled parking.  There i...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Merchandise

I ordered online this season's badges and I'm well chuffed with them.  The only thing with purchasing discontinued pins on eBay is that they can go for very high prices, which is great if you are selling them, but not if you are the one purchasing them.

Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

I love Thirteen, especially when you have first time riders not knowing what happens in the crypt.  I soon choose Thirteen over a couple of other rollercoaster on the park

Re: The World of David Walliams - New for 2020

Those inflatable arches were there at the resort promoting The world of David Walliams  briefly towards the end of last season.  They were in-between Spinball and the Smiler, the same stretch of path where they used to have the Carnival of scream scare zone.
