Alton Towers Quick Questions 2006/7

Mon Mar 27, 2006 4:16 pm

Alton Towers quick questions 2006/7

Please use this topic If you have a quick Question about alton towers that does not require a large amount of discussion.
please try to keep Q&A's as simple as possible to enable the topic to be easy to read.

Please do not use this topic for Annual Pass info Or to ask how busy the park will be on perticular dates ( this will only clutter up the topic) you can ask these questions in the Dedicated topics :

Annual Pass info

How Busy?

I will start work at transfering some of the old Q&A's from last years topic and putting them here.

This topic will be heavily monitored so you may well notice your post counts dropping when items are cleaned up.

Thankyou :D

Hi Deb, you will get XRT on any hotel stay. you will get Priority ride passes on all non-discounted hotel rates that include pre-booked theme park tickets - dont know how far they stretch that rule.

Hope that helps

I've just booked my tickets online for Saturday and I don't have a printer. Did I need to print off the whole page or is it ok as long as I have the confirmation code?

I think that you'll be ok with the reference code lauzi. I lost my sheet, and called Alton earlier as I'm going tomorrow. They said I needed the code (which they gave me), mums credit card number and a letter from her saying I can use it, and ID for myself.

Does anyone know how long it takes AT to send out entry tickets? I ordered a £15 offer ticket on Tuesday 28th March and it hasnt arrived yet and I'm going on Wednesday! :(


PotentialsinnerIf they don't arrive in the morning then give them a ring, don't worry though, they may not have sent them out due to short time between booking and visiting the park. You may have to pick them up from the pre-booked kiosk at the park entrance.

Does anyone know if you can access the Runaway Mine Train from the Gloomy Wood area? It looks like you can on the map but last time I went it was fenced off. Thanks


Evey If you follow the path through Gloomy Wood you will go up a small hill and come out next to the Runaway Mine Train. behind the large gates in Gloomy Wood (Opposite Duel) is a path that runs between The Flume and FV, this only opens at very busy times like Fireworks nights and is used as an overflow path.

1. Do they have lockers for me to leave stuff in, Like they do at Blackpool? I don't remember seeing any there before, but i may have been in the wrong place.

2. Is the skyride running yet?

Lockers are available at Guest services for £2-3 i beleive, if you want to take stuff around with you, you can place stuff in lockers situated in Forbidden valley and X sector, these are temporary and will cost 50p.

The skyride when i last checked (monday) was still not running they might have it on the go by this weekend however for the start of half term.

Where abouts do you pay for Priority parking? Is it as you exit the priority car park or before you leave the park?

It's supposed to be as you go in to the Priority Car Park. There's a toll booth if you approach from the coach park.

You're issued a ticket which gets displayed on your windscreen, so obviously if you've not paid, they should notice.

No probs Dan.
(Should of put this up earlier)If people have any queries whilst in the park and can't use TTF to help with there choice of where to stay nearby or where to eat etc. Then you have this little fella available outside of guest services :D.

Another question from me,
Does anyone have any music sheets for any of the Alton Towers music,
e.g Duel, Towers Street, Katanga Canyon e.t.c

And is Skyride still working alright?

Tom.

Don't know if this is any help, you might be able to convert it to sheet music.

£4.99 each or you can buy a Photopass for £19.99 which entitles you to any 5 onride photos.

Hi, I have an annual pass, and I am not a hotel guest. But where do I go in the morning for early rider? Do I go down that walk, that opens up into FV, or do I just go to the entrance at 9:00am?
