No I don't believe The Sun free tickets are eligible for ERT but you can access the entire park before 10am, just not ride the ERT rides (use it to queue for The Smiler opening perhaps?)

If you wanted to ride say Nemesis during ERT you will have to present your ticket/MAP I don't think there's a restriction for queuing for the queue for the smiler to open

They do, certainly at Splash Landings - there's a left luggage room just to the left of the reception desk. Not sure about AT Hotel.

So I'm a bit confused, can anyone get in the park at 9 but if you bought the tickets at the gate you can't get on the rides, or do the ticket gates not open until 10?

Is it the same woman's voice on Sub-Terra and the episode of Doctor Who called The Impossible Planet (the voice that says "open door #" and "close door #")?

Anyone can access the park from 9. Anyone can queue up for The Smiler from 9. Only hotel guests, MAP holders and online pre-books can go on the ERT rides.

Also, I was wondering how long it takes to walk from the ca park to the park/ how long the monorail queue is at around 9:15? Want to get into the park quickly! Also how long are the ticket queues?

You want to be getting the first monorail services from 8.30 to be honest.

Haha ill be getting the 8:30 one then! And I'm going in July, will be in park 10th and 11th, does anyone know roughly what they think queues will be like and what they will be like for the smiler? I don't know when England has there summer holidays and stuff, I'm up in Scotland! I'm hoping its like when I went in 2011, even though it was August the longest queues were for Thirteen and spinball which was 30 minutes! Next was about 15 for oblivion and nemesis the rest were less than 10 minute queues :D

If you buy Fastrack Scream or/and Sliver then you can only use them once! I hope this has helped you! :)
