Can't see it being too busy, people are still at school etc...but be wary of people fitting in school trips towards the end of gcse's might be a bit too early just yet, but some schools do arrange to do it inbetween gcse's, I did when I was at school...can't see many queues being over the 20 min mar...

Might be cheaper staying in the alton towers hotel? Scour ebay for some 50% off vouchers, some people flog em for around a quid or two, then this will give you 50% off the total price of a hotel stay... We managed to get a hotel stay at splash landings for £68 for a 4 person room! Which divided by 4...

This is a saviour in the hot weather, at £1.50 a pop for a 500ml bottle your better off opting for one of these, the containers with 2 halves, 1 half for coke and the other for diet coke or another drink of your choosing is an excellent idea...my girlfriend is diabetic and only drinks diet coke or d...

Had a waffle and 1 scoop for £3.25, I could have afforded 2 scoops but didn't want too much ice cream, very nice and one of the nicest desserts I have ever had, however the service is terrible, 2 windows with 1 person serving, why not just open the one window...however a good place to serve some goo...

I was also here today, it was roasting and my head feels like hell at the moment, red and sore from the sunburn...queues were quite big, more than I was expecting...only annoyance was queuing for log flume and it breaking after queuing for about 20 minutes, also didn't get to ride corkscrew as that ...

I Know I've already got a post on this page, But It's better to have this seperate. As we all seem to recognise, the current ban is unenforceble. It would be a much better idea for the time being to scrap this ban for now, And Enforce bans on queueline smoking, This is not only manageble, but would...

I think it was chris who said he wanted spinball removed...or should be removed...don't you think that this is one of the major attractions of the park, and might annoy a majority of people?

In terms of customer service, Alton have always been worlds apart from any other U.K theme park i've found... Whenever I go to Drayton Manor or Thorpe it really makes me appreciate just how good staff at Alton really are (With the possible exception of the Burger King staff this year..) And to be h...

If you think about it, I don't think its an excessive amount of money, especially if you only go once or twice a year... Reason being, people pay that much to get into a football match that lasts 2 hours max, or spend that drinking in a pub/club all day/night....granted that Alton squeeze cash out o...
