I have just booked a break at Alton Towers for a few weeks time. One night at the Alton Towers Hotel and two days in the park.
I will need to go straight to the hotel, park up and go to reception to collect my tickets which is fine but after looking at the park map, I am trying to figure out if I would then have to walk all the way back to the main entrance or could I get on the monorail, which appears to be next to the hotel, which goes directly into the park?
Also, I am a bit confused about the benefits of staying in the hotel. You get entrance to the park one hour early (but apparently not all rides are open?) and free parking at the hotels. Does this apply for both days, check in and check out days - would I get early entrance and free parking both days?
Sorry for all the questions but I cannot find answers to these and the girl I spoke to at AT was useless and told me to refer to the website!?
