Actually, there is quite a lot to do at Warwick, especially if you visit in peak summer season when they have the jousting on. Even without the jousting, you still have all of the Castle to explore (Great Hall and State Rooms; Royal Weekend Party; Kingmaker; Time Tower; Towers and Ramparts; The Mound; the Mill and Engine House, and The Princess Tower), plus from February half term onward a full schedule of shows including The Birds of Prey Show, The Bowman, and The Mighty Trebuchet. Then they also have the Haunted Castle as their Halloween event which adds 3-4 scare attractions to do on top of everything else. Therefore it is very unfair to say that the Warwick Castle Dungeons only work as there is nothing to do as that simply is not the case, it's just that Warwick is a very different type of attraction to Alton Towers - speaking from experience you still need to pick your slot for The Warwick Castle Dungeon carefully so as not to miss other things you want to do, or indeed take an hour out of your day that could make the difference between seeing and doing all the areas of the Castle and Shows or not, just as you will need to make the same consideration with The Alton Towers Dungeon.

I can just imagine a family walking past the Hex entrance and little Timmy wanting to go on it only for his parents to say “Oh Timmy, we can’t go on that, you have to pay for that ride”.
And same goes for people who have booked tickets, they’ll wonder up to Hex thinking it’s the Dungeons only to be disappointed when it’s not.
I think this can largely be avoided if there is a sign nearby Hex saying “Alton Towers Dungeon this way” pointing away from Hex.
