Hope someone can answer this one, I got a Season Pass with my Tesco vouchers this year, I could only get one, didn't have enough for two, but I can get the second on the next voucher run in May.  Question is, what discounts does one get for the second person attending the theme park when you have a Season Pass?  Is it worth me using my other vouchers for another pass?


Also, with the Merlin Annual Pass, you can also get 20% off pretty much anything you buy in Park! So it's definitely worth it with a second person. :)


Hi there, so you think I should get the second pass or keep the first.

Hi everyone. I'm new to this site. Not sure if i'm posting in the right place here. I have just purchased Alton Towers premium annual passes and I've got a couple of questions about them. I hear that you can buy an all year round quencher? Is this valid with an Alton Towers annual pass, or just with the Merlin one? How much are these to buy and do you have to preorder them or just buy them from a drinks kiosk? Thanks for your help!!!  :D


The all year drinks capsules are only available with a Merlin AP.  Last year AT had them in the Annual Pass Room.

Wondering if someone could help me here. What are these? I've never seen them before, not sure when this picture was taken either.

Am I right in thinking the 9:10 ATR bus from Uttoxeter station will wait for the train arriving at 9:05 from Derby (if it's late) before it sets off?

Probably impossible to answer, but does anyone know what the crowds are like at the weekends in April? We're going on the 21st and considering buying fast track if its going to be busy.

I'm going to Alton Towers on Sunday 1st April and staying over a night.

What do you reckon the queue times will be? And is it really worth the wait? :)

Probably not that bad on that particular date. I would imagine the weekends in the actual Easter holidays to be worst, so that would be the 31st March to the 1st April, the 7th-8th and the 14th-15th. The busiest will probably be the last weekend in Easter, always seems to be the case every year.

Merlin or day capsules?

Day capsules are black with a label, Merlin are clear with a blue plastic label that covers the whole thing.

Help!

Going up to the Towers tomorrow and for the first time in ages, need to get a bus. I know the 14 goes past where I live, what are the chances of getting on it at 7.45 tomorrow? I can live with standing up, but I need to be on that bus as I'm meeting mates at the entrance who are getting a different bus.
The Lonely end of the Rink- a great song, and it\'s usually the case when I go ice skating because I just can\'t keep up!

Was thinking of going tomorrow but I've just noticed that its the Uttoxeter Easter race meet today. Does that mean that it will be 'Traveller Day' tomorrow. Please post if you have any info either way. Thanks in advance.

Do they still do ORP mouse mats?? I didn't see them advertised when I went last week. My 6yr old Rita one is becoming rather faded!

I'm going tomorrow, but will any rides be closed because of the snow? I know its pretty much melted here, about 1hr away from AT, but if it is snowy, will any be shut?
