Alton Towers Freebies

Fri Sep 19, 2014 3:22 pm

Has anyone ever been given any freebies from Alton Towers? Perhaps biscuits at the exit, free fast passes for ride breakdowns etc. Post yours below.

I've had 4 free fastracks for The Smiler from Alton Towers Twitter for my fiance's birthday. And also 4 free waterpark tickets to use between Nov 2014 and Feb 2015 from reviewing the Towers on TripAdvisor. :D

I do remember years ago being evac'd from Charlie and getting a RMT fastrack.

Think I've only ever received free fast track during Scarefest staying at the ATH to make up for lack of ERT. I also remember there being an absolute tonne of free chocolate one year at Easter when they had the chocolate volcano which pleased my sweet tooth greatly :D

Had free cereal when the smiler opened. Had some kellogs squares and also had Fanta.

Not had any free fastracks unless you count the ones the hotel give you during scarefest as no ERT.

I got a free fastrack when Nemmy broke for 5 minutes and I was stuck. Staff didn't expect a 12 year old to go asking for compensation because they were stuck! :lol

Yup, I seem to remember getting a Rocky Road Squares bar back in July last year. Don't think I liked it much.

I got 20 fasttracks for the Smiler being broke during one visit last year. I also got a few boxes of Krave for the smiler launch too and 2 free entry tickets for some comp I entered on twitter! Nothing so far this year though.
