Hey, I've noticed that the park is only open from 10.00 until 17.30 throughout most of the september period. Why does it shut so much earlier? This is when I am going.x

Half 5 is the kinda default closing time at the Theme Park. It's been that for most of this year. If a busy day it is usually increased to 6pm.

Puppen, the ride closing time is determined by the expected 'busyness' of the park and can change even during the day (I was there in easter where ride closure time was advertised as 5.30, but stretched to 6.00 on the electronic queue boards due to park being packed!)

Summer sees the later openings, whereas the quiter september midweek periods dont demand longer hours due to less people on park!

Hope that helps :)

Okay, so I'm going on thursday but my friend is scared of oblivion, she says that she doesn't think she's gonna go on it. She will go on nemesis and air because they look "peaceful" aparently (don't know how she worked that out :S ) Anyway, my question is, how can I [s:j9nxkpe2]drag her[/s:j9nxkpe2] persuade her to go on it?

Thanks, Chris

One hour after ride close. It will be posted on a board in the monorail station. You'll see it as you get off the inbound Monorail :)

If it's 5:30 ride close, then last monorail will be 6:30.

Say that she will regret it if she does not go on and that she will feel really proud of herself afterwards. Also, at the end of the day, it is only a drop. :)

Anyone else got any other ideas? :) :) :)

Thanks :P Told her that, she says it depends what she feels like on the day :P

Right my next question:P

On the AT website, it says Fast track scream is for Air, Nemesis and Oblivion. But if you go on the seperate ride pages, all the thrill rides say:

"Beat the queues with Fastrack!

* Fastrack Scream
* Fastrack Ultimate
* Fastrack Platinum"

Is that just an advert type thing or can you use it for them aswell?

Thanks, Chris


EDIT: Neverminds :P It says it on everypage :P Just my mind getting toooooo excited :D

While I've just wasted a post, I'll add another question..

Are you allowed to video while on rides/rollercoasters?

Thanks :D

No there are signs up to warn you not to. If you are seen with your mobile or camera out the oppo's will stop the ride and one of them will come up the lift hill to tell you off. They seem pretty strict about it too I have seen it happen quite a few times.

Hi,

Wondering if anyone can help me. We are staying near Trentham Gardens and was wondering does anyone know roughly how long will it take to get to Alton Towers from here?
