I kind of like the idea - people could do it from their phones. text the list of rides you wanna go on and a computer figures times out for each ride (times that at the least would allow you time to cross from the last ride to the next ride in a differnt area of the park) and it texts you back with these times.
But where that logicly seems to lead is to everyone doing it which would interupt the normal que a lot along with fast track unless they do away with it.
If a lot of people start doing it, it interrupts the normal que a lot. The only solution for that is to do away with the normal que, have everyone book an appointment for each ride so you would end up with a small crowd of people eating their sandwhiches about 15 mins before the ride (kind of like at the doctors) but this is gonna limit each guest/family to the average number or rides a guest/family can have on that given day - which would be a figure derived from how many people are in the park. That means you would probably then have to book to come to the park and you lose the benifits of being able to buy a ticket at the gate and also those sporadic benifits of normal queing. Everything would be averaged out.
If you book tickets you could then book rides on the ticket, or be given a standard package/list of rides, you wouldn't need to text.
If Alton Towers is lovely enough they can then they can LIMIT the number of the overall park guests to a low number, increasing the average number or rides per guests/groups/families.
So yeah, in summery you would have to book the whole day up with all your rides you wanna go on and how many times and that could give you a great amount of freedome to do lesser, none ride activities e.g. look at the gardens and go in the towers castle, eat your lunch,sun bathe - that could be cool. OR else, you allow just a few ride appointments, by text, where you pay for the privialidge of interrupting the normal que - essentially becoming very much like a fast track by appointment - but like I said that can only be done by a few people per train/ride cycle or else it really interupts the normal que.
I feel like I've given you all the answers here - they just seemed to come to me so I hope this helps with such a descision.
