If you book a package from Alton Towers themselves with Theme Park Tickets included you'll get unlimited theme park access during your stay (eg both days for a one night stay), breakfast included as well as Early Ride Time in the Theme Park too.

Oh, and also 'evening entertainment' :roll: at the hotels...

Only if you book a theme park ticket package. The best thing to do is go to the booking site and you'll see exactly what you get for what price in the What's included!!

Breakfast is usually included unless you've booked a room only deal. There is an Entrance called the woodland walk at the back of the Alton Towers Hotel which opens at 08:30. It's a fair walk through the woods to the Valley, not ideal for people who find it difficult to walk or with pushchairs etc.

Try looking on ebay for 50% off vouchers for the hotel, some people only charge a couple of quid for em and it saves you a packet on the hotel costs

One good code that works online is 'wool'. Like all hotel vouchers, don't work on Sat nights or school hols.

how come it works when you put it wool?? would you not have to produce some sort of voucher when you get there? do you know is you can get the tickets with this as well or is it just the room?

Well the ERT rides are at the main entrance end of the park, kind of defeating the object of having the walk open I suppose. They're also no doubt wanting to showcase their new attraction for this season to as many people as possible I would imagine.
