Mine came this morning and we're also in the 570's. I only rushed to buy as I thought someone on here said there was only 45 left, guess they missed the 0 out.
That was me, and I was definitely told on the phone that there were 45 left - no question of a missing zero!
Mine is numbered 530, so either I was fibbed to, or she "missed the zero out" when she read it on the screen. I'm not disappointed as I would have bought it anyway, but I apologise for passing on the misinformation! Will I at least get a commission on the ones I flogged?
I can assure you, however, that you won't regret it!
My first experience of the pass was at Thorpe Park today. Like "pob", the named person wasn't there to greet me, but someone else appeared soon enough. I also got the 'Ultimate Fastrack' bands (labelled as such too) - although unlike other reports, I was explicitly told (more than once) that the 'Detonator' fastrack was unlimited. I didn't actually go on Detonator (it's not my favourite ride, and rebranding it as something to do with Angry Birds when it has a 1.3m height restriction is absurd, but I digress), so don't know how that would have played out!
I asked about the pre-booking, and I honestly couldn't see too many advantages. You're allowed to park in The Shark car park without prebooking (and I can hardly see it becoming full), and you're equally entitled too all the other privileges too. I gather the only thing prebooking gets you is a 10-minute time waster in the Business Reception centre. That said, the Unlimited Fastrack wristbands are meant to be picked up from the Fastrack line, which can have a hefty line... so it could end up being worth it for that. Maybe it's different/more worthwhile at Alton Towers?
I have really very few complaints. Ultimately, as we knew from the start, "Ultimate Fastpass", the preferred parking and free quencher refills, are the only tangible/promised benefits in the UK, and I received all those with no problem whatsoever. There were several times when the staff went above and beyond - the pass was commented on by someone in the Swarm shop, and I would say the Fastrack ride greeters were just a little more friendly than usual (although that's so nebulous!). I know people have commented on the lack of the VIP wristbands, but I don't think it matters that much - the lanyard makes it plenty obvious!
To those disappointed they didn't receive Front Row treatment, I think this may be partly due to how the TP queues are laid out. Front Row queueing isn't really controlled by the ride hosts on any of the rides, and often the front row is actually blocked off. Interested by comments of people going in via the Exit... it's not clear to me if that's a published perk or not! I went through the edit on X, but I think that's just how all fastracks work on that ride these days.
I saw another person wearing a VIP lanyward in the THE SWARM queue in the afternoon - we passed each other a knowing glance! LOL. Overall though, I had a fantastic day. The only disappointment was that Stealth was closed... and a fiasco at the car park barrier (they need to do something with these scanners as it seems others were also having problems).
My next experience will be at Chessington, probably. I was given a bit of 'attitude' when I went to ride Vampire on my own last time ("you can't have a row on your own... you'll have to ask that lady over there if they mind sitting next to you..." awkward!) So if it eliminates that little unpleasantness, it'll be worth it on its own. I think with a VIP pass the least I deserve is my own row, if they don't want to organise seating me next to someone.
