Poll: How often do you visit Alton Towers per year?

Sat Dec 15, 2012 8:16 pm

Title says it all really.
My family and I visit at least once a year, sometimes twice a year. Since we drive from London we stay at the Holiday Inn express next to stoke football stadium then visit the next day so we have a full day to visit the whole park.

This year, it was 3 times. The year before, 8 times, so I'm pretty inconsistent. :P

My last visit to AT was the year before Charlie and the Chocolate factory opened. Nothing has been built since to warrant the 5 hr drive but I may go next year depending on how SW7 turns out.

I live very close to Alton Towers but I only go like 1-2 times a year but I couldn't choose that in the poll! The first visit is usually in April/May and then for the final visit I go for Scarefest! :D

Oooh, probably about 85+ for me, I try and pop every weekend and in multiple times during school holidays.

Well, that's the advantage of living in the village and being an owner of a MAP.

The figure was around the fifteen mark for last year, though that was the highest it has ever been and I doubt is a level which I will take into the 2013 season. It was, frankly, too often. I lost my love of the place towards the end of the campaign.

For me it was about 12 - 15 times...... always go start of season and always finish with the fireworks plus many more between..... would be more if i had a car instead of the usual train from wolves to stoke and then Alton Travel to the park  :D
