Towers Christmas packages

Hi all, Does anyone know if you can use a Merlin pass to get a discount on the Special Christmas packages put together by Alton Towers? Like the Santa sleepovers at the hotel etc? It does say that the standard Merlin pass discount cannot be used in conjunction with other special offers, but was not ...

Pokémon Go at Alton Towers

Hi, Does anyone play Pokémon Go and go to Alton Towers? The turnover of the gyms is quite high, and there's a huge amount of Pokéstops.  I am wondering the etiquette on raids there, as I'm a season pass holder and wonder if I can partake in a raid or two whilst i'm there.  What I mean by etiquette i...

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

It is a real shame about the red rivers.. really wish they'd find a way to bring it back, but I'm not really hopeful it'll happen sadly. :( Didn't notice that the station had plants and moss over it though??

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

only one car was running on Tuesday. 30 minute queue in the morning.

The Wicker Man effect is starting to happen with the queue times for The Smiler. They are reducing in length (still long)  but I certainly feel that I don't wait as long as I used to. A little bit of knowledge and planning also comes into play when navigating the park, but I wouldn't buy a fastrack...

Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

first time on the Wicker Man this week and what a ride! Loved it.  It felt so fast. Queue time was 40 mins and after i'd finished it dropped to 20. One thing I'd say is that although I'm not too fond of the theming (Fed up of horror) they have really paid attention to it and followed through with it.
