Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

So it seems season pass pre-book tickets over Scarefest are only available for 'twilight' entry and not the full day? I assume this applies to both standard and premium passes? Makes the 'perk' of free entry Scarefest for premium only seem redundant if so...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

And sadly some people think the markings on the floor in the queue lines are just there for fun. Standing as close to those in front of them as they would without social distancing in place...

Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

From the latest TT article:

"TH13TEEN is remaining closed since social distancing requirements mean the minimum passenger weight to run cannot be reached"

Can anyone clarify what this means? Empty trains can still run can't they so why not the same with reduced pax numbers?

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

For anyone who went this weekend, what were the queue times like? Is it just the entry capacity that's been reduced or has ride capacity also been reduced?

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Having not been to AT in August for a long time, could anyone give me an idea as to what queue times will be like Tuesday? I'm guessing quieter than August weekends but then again, with school holidays is it just as busy weekdays too?

Just chicken and RCR have both been confirmed to have options which is a good improvement over last year when we had to eat in Eastern Express 3 times Great news! With the huge rise in veganism over the past few years I've be...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

In addition to premium season pass holders, I'm assuming MAP holders will also get free entry to the Dungeon? And does anyone have an idea as to how the pre-booking will work?

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

As a season pass holder, does the £10 upgrade for exclusion dates include Scarefest? It would be nice to only have to pay £10 entry + £20 for scare mazes rather than the £50 combi...  Yes, it’s possible for Season Passholders to book the £10 extra day tickets for Scarefest (and Fireworks) dates onl...
