See Alton Towers From Behind The Scenes

Ever wanted to see what goes on behind the scenes at Alton Towers?

Well, here is your chance! Following on from ATA's poll about the idea, the park have decided to go ahead with the tours.
Here is the press release:

Alton Towers are delighted to announce details of their long awaited Behind the Scenes tour package! The first tour will take place on Saturday 11th March, beginning at 10am prompt. Whilst we are keen to maintain a surprise element to the tour, guests can expect to climb the Air lift hill, see exactly how Hex achieves its unique effects, enter the Nemesis computer room and walk through a number of scenes within Duel - The Haunted House Strikes Back!

At a cost of £30, the tour will last approximately four hours, and will conclude with lunch provided in the Park Boardroom. If you are interested, please send an email to [email:1dx17v7g][email protected][/email:1dx17v7g] before Wednesday 8th February. Just 20 places are available, so names will be drawn at random. Please note, only one ticket is available per entry. Those selected will be emailed full booking details.

The intention is to offer a similar package during open season, so if you are unsuccessful in gaining a place on this occasion, there will be an alternative offer available in the future.

NB
Guests must be at least 16 years old to attend this tour.
This is a physically demanding tour - all participants must be physically fit and be adequately attired.


Good luck to everybody who enters!

Sounds cool, shame im not 16 till 14 days later :( other wise i would of entered. Glad to hear their going to do them in the open season though. Always fancied doing something a little different at the park, get to see it from a different view. Like walking the rapids, climbing the lift hills, entering the Oblivion hole and things like that. :)

hmm it seems a little unfair to only give you one ticket if you win, talk about billy no-mates! Ive still entered though, why not I say, why not. The Duel walk around sounds very good.

I dout they would want identity, But i suppose the 16 age limit is becuase you would be doing the same thing as a host would.

I suppose we would have to make our own arrangments to get their, I suppose I could catch a train to stoke and bus it, though I'm at alton on 12th April to, though behind the scenes is fantastic.

If someone gets picked from TTF they must do a review on it?

- a review should be made compulsary, and include loads of photos of things we don't usually get to see.
