After visting yesterday, expecting a quiet day, i was very much mistaken. It was in my eyes busy, busier than a summer day ive been on and far busier than my previous september trip just after the school went back.
What i fail to understand is why there were so many school parties and familys in the park, on a weekday, just two weeks into school. They have every right to attend the park, but frankly screaming girls and chavs i did not expect, nor queues in excess of an hour for the major rides.
So i ask, when the hell is quiet anymore?!
I agree 100% we went wed 15th and it was far too busy for that time of year. Groups of 10-15 year old kids running about!
We counted 16 coaches in the car park. Are 6 weeks holidays not enough for kids now? That they now need visits to theme parks after going back for 2 weeks.
I did expect it to be a bit busier due to a new ride and unis have not gone back. But it was still far far too busy.
Last two times I have been to Alton Towers now it has been a lot busier than expected. So 2 visits and disappointed twice. Not good. :|
