Both Flambos and Secret Garden open to any guest I believe, but you are required to book a table for evenings at the Secret Garden Restaurant in the Alton Towers Hotel. They are both fairly pricey. I think Flambos was something like £18 a plate, which is only justified by the fact that you have unlimited gorging. It is generally preferable to Secret Garden for its atmopshere and larger portions.

As above, your only real options are the hotel restaurants (either Flambos buffet or Secrret Garden Brazzerie) - My best advice would be to get in your car and stop off in Alton Village itself for a pub evening meal, theres plenty of options and much much cheaper than resort!

My question -

1. What are the exact flambos prices?
2. What times are the shows (on park) on?

Thanks guys, will have to look up local pubs, that sounds like probably the best idea.

This may not seem like Alton Towers related question but it is for me, when do the summer holidays start in England. With us in N.I. they start 30th June. Is it later on the mainland?

Unlikely that it will be busy as they are to my knowledge school days!

As for school trips, I don't think anyone other than AT would have that info!

MY question is, the Nemesis restraints: are the restraints with two belts new replacements or old harnesses?

I thought double seat belts were just used for the bigger seats.

^Yes double seat belts are used for the "big boy" seats on B&M's and can usually be found on one seat in the two middle rows on B&M inverts. Basically the seats are larger and therefore can accommodate larger guests and they have two seat belts so they can take more weight in the event of the main restraint failing (which is highly un likely).
