Re: Quick Questions 2010

I found an FAQ on the alton towers website and the info you told me i belive isn't exact
"Annual pass FAQ" wrote:
You can renew up until 8 weeks after your pass has expired. However, if your pass expired more than 8 weeks ago, you will need to sign up as a new passholder and will not be entitled to the renewal discounts, sorry!

I understand the above as saying i can renew it between the date it expired which was yesterday and the 15th of april which will be exactly 8 weeks after my expiry date. Does anyone else read it the same way as i have or have i miss understood what it says.

Your day is currently closed for half term but not sure if it will return later in the year.


Anyway, heres my question.
Does anyone know a way of overcoming motion sickness on the rides. I used to be able to go on all the rides without feeling sick or anything like that, but for the past 10 or so weeks ive visited (half term and last september and october), many of the rides have made me feel totally awful, except maurauders mayhem, which is a bit of a weird one lol. I even was nearly sick on the runaway mine train, which is completely weird for me, although we did go round 15 times :lol: .
Anyway, if anyone knows a way which can help me to overcome this cos i really wanna keep enjoying the rides for many years to come, and even so, i refuse to let a little nausea put me off :D

Many thanks

I had a minor version of what you have, one thing is just try not to think about it AT AL. I'm not sure if that will help you though but it helped me. :D

I've had my new MAP for three days, and it has split in half while in my wallet really bizarrely :?
Will I be charged for a replacement? And if so, do you think it is worth making a complaint first as it has been in no way mistreated and it would be quite unfair for me to pay when I must have been given a weak pass. Never had this happen before!

I think you probrably will get charged to have it replaced, my friend did when his got lost, and its the same situation (with it being the owners fault - getting snapped or lost) and i highly doubt complaining will do anything, cos they wil just say to you, its not our fault it got snappped. But i suppose its worth a try :D

Thanks,
I'll probably try complaining as it really must have been a weak card, certainly never had it happen with previous annual passes. But I'll prepare to be charged and accept it if there is nothing they can do. How much do they charge for a replacement?

Yup definitely £10 :-( - I've got to do the same thing. One word of warning - you have to get it replaced at the original issuing attraction - caught me out at Towers last weekend when mine was issued at the London Eye!

Thanks to Ian for the sig!

Having a bbq in the toilets, hmmmm. :shock:

At a guess they arent allowed, but thats not for defo as ive never seen anything about this, and im guessing if you were caught with one and you werent allowed, i doubt they would really care an awful lot. Wouldnt even bother trying to hide it, as long as you dispose of it correctly and use it responsibly, i dont think theyd mind :D

Does anyone know any companies that do some arranged coach trips to Alton Towers from around the Birmingham area?

I know one, but they don't start until July

Thanks

I'm not sure, although I would definately say you wouldn't be allowed to use them in the toilets or monorail station. Perhaps the car park? Although if you do go into the garden's remove the cardboard packaging. Last year at Silverstone we didn't, and nearly burned the place down! :)

You've got more of a chance if your open about it and don't try to hide it. I'd use it in the Car Park if I were you.
