noticed FV is always empty in the morning and nemesis is on ERT so was gonna do that a few times, then thirteen then I'm at rita for 10 before its busy, then maybe back to air before it gets busy then the rest of the park! That way ill get a lot of good stuff done quick and won't need fast pass :)

I went a month or so ago and its £9.75 for an adult and £6.95 for under 12's if im not mistaken.

Not been burger co but its around 7quid usually for a burger meal but personally i thought kfc,burgerking were better just looking at the menu.

Sorry if this is the wrong topic to post this:

Does anybody know if the X52 Bus from Nottingham (Broadmarsh) is currently still running service to Alton Towers?

If so, does anyone happen to know departure and arrival times, as well as prices for a same-day return ticket? Me and a friend are planning to go this Thursday so we wanted to know travel details beforehand.

Thanks :)

Does anyone know what time the car park opens to guests, and what time the first monorail is from the car park to the entrance?

Using ERT what worked for me was, straight to box office, buy smiler fastracks, then head over to forbidden valley via the path that goes through duel. Get a few rides in on nemesis, queue for air for when it opens at 10am, jump on ripsaw and the blade, get on sub terra, head over to DF, get on 13 and queue for rita for about 20 minutes and then youve got that lot done. Then i headed towards X sector rode the smiler a few times using fastracks then i would of got on oblivion afterwards if it was open. Then you can just spend the rest of the day doing everything else as youve done the main rides in the morning :D

When we went mid june there were small queues of no more than 5-10 mins even if it was most of the way down the 2 flights of stairs before the chute!

Have you emailed AT themselves to tell them you used to use the service? They said they stopped it due to "lack of interest" but whenever I went on it it was busy! Apparently they might put it on for summer holidays but not looking likely at the moment....

Never seen it below 90 minutes on ridetimes.co.uk, I believe it is often between 2-3 hours.

I believe fast-track tickets are £7 each for The Smiler

That's the normal queue I'm sure they mean single rider*

I believe it doesn't go much past half an hour!

The shortest I've queued in the Smiler SRQ is 40 minutes, on two occasions on the Monday just gone.
