This I'm not too sure about, but I would think that it is just Finns that is open after park close :)


You're right Jack.

Fins Bar & Grill is the only food option that is open after park close.

If Finns does not take your fancy then Staines has a wide range of restaurants to choose from.

Harvester, TGI Fridays (very good), Pizza Hut and Wetherspoons are just a few to choose from. They also have a 24 hour McDonald at Two Rivers retail park, if you don't wish to eat at a restaurant.

It should be noted that the past three times this restaurant has given myself and the people I have went with below average food - it seems to have went downhill a bit recently.

Thank you, will definitely have a look there. Just one question that I can't seem to find the answer to is about the digipass. It says you get two wristbands, are you able to swap these between your group to accommodate for who's sat with who and how should we go about going on water rides with the digipass wristband and hotel wristband?
If you hear people singing random songs on a rollercoaster, it's probably me and my best friend #SmileAlways

Apparently a security camera is broken and the ride cannot open until it is fixed. Although this is just something I overheard someone saying a member of staff had told them. So whether that is the actual reason or not is unconfirmed.

Merlin Annual Pass have said on Facebook that a one off Summer Nights event will be taking place.

However To celebrate the opening of Derren Brown’s Ghost Train, we will bring back Summer Nights for one night only in 2016 for Annual Passholders only!

This could be true. They have critical cameras which must be in action at all times when operating.

If the park opens at 9.30 when do the rides open? I know you can get in AT at 9 but even the early ride time rides like Spinball don't seem run until 9.30, is there any point getting to Thorpe at 9.30 tomorrow?

If it isn't for early access then the attractions should run from this time. :)

Thorpe often don't open the rides when the park opens. Moat should open on time, but don't be shocked if you get to the ride of your choice and they are still in engineering time. Same with Chessington as well.

Alton towers is frustrating for the same reason, even the skyride wasn't open by 11am most days we were there, that really should open dead on normal park opening at 10am at the latest, part of the magic of the park especially for new guests is going on the monorail then straight on the skyride to get a great overview of the park, park opening should be ride opening, as standard! Not doors open prompt but rides ready when we feel like it after that.

Probably because you would get to forbidden Valley etc too quickly for the parks liking, because the rides there are not open yet either!
