just to avoid disappointment by anyone nemesis will not be open but air will be open as a replacement.
#2
Went on Saturday....usual teething problems with a couple of rides temporarily breaking down but all in all a good day. Nemesis does not look in too good shape at the moment!
#3

sorry, never really thought of that :oops:
#10
Have to laugh at the "come back free" bit....as they know you will never come back if you can aviod it :)

Escape 'to' (typo : 'from' surely) the Alton Towers Resort"

I'm voting it hot by the way if its your thing...but as a veteran of 'legoland' and 'disneyland' paris this year...i have lost the will to live as a result.

-There's Something in the Dung Heap adventure playground

There’s something in the Dung Heap…..
Alton Towers Resortis going ‘Dung-Ho’ with the opening of an adventure playground for younger children themed around the peculiarly British, and eternally fascinating, topic of ‘dung’.

‘There’s something in the Dung Heap’ features everything you’d expect from a ‘dung’ experience and more. Interactive play areas include a Spider ‘Springy Cobweb Climbing zone’, a ‘Creepy Crawly Basharound’, Toxic Bog ‘Toadstool Boingupons’ and a Mushroom maze! Kids can also join in the Bug Chorus in the Soil Albug Hall, zip along on a silken zip wire, spring across a bog and even become a conductor in the trash can symphony, while parents watch from the trunk of a beanstalk.

Haunted Hollow - Dare you take the short-cut through the haunted wood??
Fearless families visiting Alton Towers Resort will be able to brave a visit to the Haunted Hollow, IF they dare to take the short-cut to Forbidden Valley. Located in an area of Alton Towers Resorts ancient and wild woodland, the sinister trail will take visitors on an eerie adventure rooted in the history of the Park and its original inhabitants, whose ancestors are buried within its grounds.

Extraordinary Golf
The sport of golf takes on a new direction at Alton Towers Resort for 2008. Forget crazy golf, urban golf and even guerrilla golf, the next big thing is Extraordinary Golf, which offers the putter a miniature 18-hole golf course heavily customised and themed around the park’s signature rides and attractions. Players of all ages will be able to putt their way into Oblivion, through waterfalls, over Nemesis and around the roundabouts of the Peugeot 207 Driving School! Note: a separate entry charge applies.

Old MacDonald’s Farm
Join the very young at heart and play ‘Riverbank Eye-Spy’ on this pleasure cruise revamped to bring cuddly farm yard favourites vividly and spectacularly to life.

Unlimited Thrills
The Alton Towers Resort name is a byword for thrills! Speed freaks are outmatched on Rita - Queen of Speed; Air brings windswept exhilaration; Oblivion’s death defying plunge is the choice of adrenaline junkies and Nemesis’ turbulent, twisting frenzy leaves everyone wanting more minutes later!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: The Ride
Experience Charlie’s amazing journey into Willy Wonka’s fantabulous world. Accompany Charlie both on foot and by boat through a fantastical landscape in a journey that culminates with a jaw-dropping trip to the clouds in the multi-sensory Great Glass Elevator.

i havn't bought tickets for this offer yet but when ive purchased tickets from this site before they give you the option of having them posted or e-mailed to you then you can print them yourself. hope that helps.

Went myself yesterday with my wife and 2 friends and i must admit it was a little disappointing with only a couple of the big rides open.
On the plus side queues were very small and give the Hex ride a go which after a strange opening is an excellent experience.I cant work out how its done!
#19
Is this still the best and cheapest option if we are planning to go when the park re-opens properly but don't intend to go this week?

Thanks

I went on this deal last year and I found it a boring day as there was only a couple of rides open for the adults :x

good day out if you have got nippers though :)

my advice would be get the tickets and don't go... wait till the park opens fully and use the come back free tickets.. :thumbsup:

We thought this last Summer but risked it and had an absolutly amazong time my 4 year old son loved it! We didn'ty have enough time to show him all the big rides as we were too busy on all the rides he could go on - well worth it although it was a very sunny day - not sure bout February!

This is my main concern, the family ticket for 3 is only £28 if bought in advance from Alton Towers website so this is only a deal if you get the free day. Can anyone confirm how this works???

We booked via lastminute.com and the email confirmation indicated the 2nd day was included. Please see my post on the lastminute.com thread here:

I think what he's asking is, Is it possible to skip the 1st day on the ticket, i.e. not go this week, and just use the free day i.e. return before 30 June?
#30
I'm not sure how you would go about getting the free tickets if you don't go - I went on Saturday and we got given the come back free tickets when we collected our ones for that day (which btw say valid until 1/11/09!! So I wonder if it is just until the end of June....). i think the least you would have to do would be turn up on the day to collect your tickets even if you don't go in!

Alton towers often do good deals (even with the hotels) naround this time of year. Me and the wife used to go and took the wifes youngest sister. Queses didn't exist at all when we went. the park was only open about 4-6 hours but in that time we went on:-
Air - twice
Nemisis - Ten times (I convinced Sis in law that you got a medal if you did it ten times) :evil:
Oblivion - six times (at least)
Black hole - once

considering we went again last summer and went on around 6 rides in a full day I think its great value.

on nemisis me and my sis-in-law discovered that if we ran round quickly enough we could get back on the ride before it set off again, but the ride attendants said we had to get off and go round to go again :x

No, I'm going the first day, this Thursday, but I cant see any mention of how the free re-entry thing works - there's nothing on my ticket, so I dont know whether you get another admission ticket when you go in this time, or another voucher comes in the post, or what.
#33
We went last year, good for younger kids but loads of walking as the rides that are open are bloody miles apart!
#34
Looked on the Last Minute site but it only gave the option to buy child tickets on the 20th when we want to go? Only the 22nd shows adults as well as childs tickets? Strange?
#35
Good deal, but you couldn't pay me to visit Alton Towers during half term. The queues will be a nightmare!
OK if you have kids & this is the only time you can make it.

Also have to agree with a few of the other comments. Alton Towers is ok, but I strongly urge you to go to Disney Land Paris and Parc Asterix in France!!!
#36
know a few people who went on saturday and they said the ques were rather quiet, not sure if its diffrent in the week, but would have thought if it was to be busy it be on the weekend

Just got back, to be honest it was OK, not great though. We took our 4yr old so only went for the kids rides but the place was far from empty. We had to wait about 30-40 mins for every ride but the worst thing was that it was crammed full of chavvy scousers. Im not being "racist" here but EVERY screamer (on the straight bits of the runaway train for christ sake!!), shouter and foul mouther was a chuffin scouser. Why the hell 2 late teen chavs would want to go on the "eye-see farm boat" ride is beyond me but to sit there effing and blinding about how f*****g s**t it all was when they coud see my little lad sat right in front is beyond me!!

Other than that you must consider that Alton Towers has its own climate, weather said 11 degrees and sunny everywhere today, got there and it was FREEZING!!!!! Take a coat!! As for the added day, they just give you the complimentary tickets when you pick up your pre-booked ones, they do say 11/09 BUT she said that they had to be used by the end of June so Im not risking it.

MANY thanks to OP, you're a star!!
