Its a far better solution than having to close an attraction all day! Theme Parks around the world stagger opening times, admittingly they could have been a little smarter about what rides to open, but still!
If its not one thing its the other! Gee. Its a fine solution! Just go on a different ride in the morning! Why let a ride be completely empty for an hour or so!? Just don't open it, untill the park actually starts to get busy, at around 11-12!
So calm down! Its not WW3...Yet! Although the way Alton are having to cut and save, there may well be, and if its not the 'national socialist TT' it will certainly be the liberal facebookers! LOL!
If Alton had been a little sensible, they should have shut maybe x-sector or Dark forest completely, rather than all over the place because they could have at least staggered the park, like Port Aventura, and other such parks!
However, many parks shut there rides either first thing, last thing or at lunch time, depending on what and where the park is! Its not a total disaster! Gee! Keep calm and carry on!
Just saying it like it is! There are far worse things the park could have done, and just think, in about a week or so, they will recoil this system and it will no longer exist!

I was in the park on Friday and i'm pretty sure all stock was removed from the shop and it was closed off?
I could be wrong

Sorry to be blunt, but the way I see it, Alton have fairly trialed lots of cost cutting techniques and this is probably the best one they could have done, but the only thing I would have changed would have been, instead not open forbidden valley untill 11, instead, simply because it is the furthest from the main entrance!

However you all suggest ideas, but they are all different. So how can they possibly please you all!?
