That's interesting. I didn't know you could get VIP for the dungeons, but not only 5 star treatment, but you were actually involved with the tour? That is awesome!
It really did make us feel VIP, it was the effort they went to that made our day and the fact they've added extra bits just for VIP.
Well worth a visit!
Can 100% say the reported event at Alton Towers wasn't a VIP annual pass holder, there is no way they would allow us to do that. If you even dare ask for front row on Rita we got told our pass doesn't allow a choice of seating and if you want front row you have to join the normal queue, also like that for the other rides.
Does everyone just queue and wait at Alton Towers to get manually scanned in? After I park up I call the VIP number and someone comes over and walks us straight in and sorts the wristbands out. That's the only bit of VIP treatment annual pass holders get.
