Alton Towers are open for NUS Extra card holders only on the 7th of November, for £15 a ticket(should in theory be substantially less queues!).
This is an over the phone offer where you order with a code - there is no explicit mention that you have to present the card at any time, but obviously up to you if you want to risk that....

One of Alton Towers' best-loved rides 'Oblivion' is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2008. The death-defying plunge has been the number one choice for adrenaline junkies for the past decade and looks set to excite many more visitors this year!
There is also the must-try 'Rita - Queen of Speed', 'Air' to bring windswept exhilaration and 'Nemesis' - the turbulent, twisting frenzy that is still voted one of the UK's top roller coasters and leaves everyone wanting more just minutes later.
Britain to Bid Farewell to the Nation's Most Iconic Rollercoaster
After 28 fantastic years of operation, the time has come to bid farewell to the iconic Corkscrew! Since opening in 1980, the ride has carried a whopping 43.5 million riders and has travelled over 820,000 miles to date - the equivalent distance of travelling to the moon and back nearly four times! The Corkscrew will run for the last time on Sunday 9th November, but to give you a chance to say goodbye, the ride has also been added to the ride line-up on the 7th November. Book now to avoid disappointment!
Other fantastical rides that will be available include Spinball Whizzer, Submission, Enterprise, Marauders Mayhem, Heave Ho, Runaway Mine Train, Duel, Nemesis, Air and Blade.
If you get frustrated with all that time spent queueing while you could be enjoying the rides, make sure you take full advantage of this exclusive opportunity. As the park is open exclusively to NUS Extra cardholders, there will be less people meaning shorter queues with plenty of time to ride all the best rollercoasters to your heart's content!
