The fact that Alton Towers seem to think they can play this day-by-day is an absolute disgrace. Somebody in the management team needs to get a grip and man up. Set a realistic opening date - like Saturday 1st June - for example and then that gives them over a week to get things finished and tidied up. It also does a good job of giving people a bit of notice to change plans.
It's common decency, Alton Towers. You need to get some!
This is the third set of dates that we've set this year for our AT trip. I thought with a "May" opening picking the last week would be safer, despite it being half term.
24 hours notice is a real teeth kicker, I can't rearrange leave from work just like that, and the GF certainly can't. I'm going to be driving from the Lake District with a cloud of expectant disappointment hanging over me.
