Alton Towers booking tipsHERE'S how to get your FREE pair of tickets to … Alton Towers booking tipsHERE'S how to get your FREE pair of tickets to the Alton Towers Theme Park, worth £76! Five steps to a successful applicationSTEP ONE: Collect SEVEN differently numbered tokens from the eleven that we'll be printing in The Sun. The first token was printed on Saturday February 27. Applications without the correct number of tokens will be void. STEP TWO: Complete all sections of the application form after reading the offer terms and conditions. You MUST choose 5 date bands from the 11 provided, in your order of preference, in the spaces provided on the ticket application form. Applications that do not have the 5 bands indicated in order of preference will be processed last. We will of course do our utmost to allocate tickets from your preferred band. PLEASE NOTE: YOUR TICKETS WILL BE VALID FOR ONE SPECIFIC DAY FROM YOUR CHOSEN BAND and are not transferrable. We regret that we cannot meet specific date requests from within selected bands. STEP THREE: You MUST Include a self addressed envelope at least 15cm x 8cm with a 1st class stamp attached . Applications that do not include an SAE will not be processed. STEP FOUR: You MUST write your 5 date band choices (in order of preference), on the bottom right hand corner of the envelope you send your application in (not your SAE). STEP FIVE: Send your completed ticket application form, with SEVEN differently numbered tokens attached, together with your SAE to the address on the form. Allow 28 days to receive your tickets - although tickets for band A will be despatched as priority. Last date for receiving applications is Wednesday March 17 and we cannot process applications received after that date. In the unlikely event that we are unable to allocate tickets for any of your five chosen preferences, we will contact you with an equivalent alternative.



Not sure why it says 'was printed' but vouchers are availiable as of 27th feb (this Saturday)

did this last year was great as kids under 4 i think it was were free so we all got to go , and suprisingly it wasnt busy at all even though it was a "free" day . Will be collecting again

Apparently the article was/is published on the 28th February so might have been released early by mistake.

Excellent. Thanks for the heads up.

Get these tickets every year, as we spend a week in Derbyshire anually, as it's very unlikely you will get tickets fot the day you require, I list and sell mine on Ebay and buy some for the correct date again on Ebay, worked perfectly for the last 2 years, although fingers crossed this year it won't rain !!

ditto. still only costs you about 2 - 3 pound more to do this.

thanks

you dont actually get to pick a specific day just a range and u get given a day

So could be week day or wkd

Is the paper a different price on different days?

Cheers OP - did this last year, great deal.

It is a good deal but I have been the last two years and it isn't so cheap when you come from down south and thne have to pay for car parking etc.

nice find, gone on this for the past 3 years, cracking deal !

When do the vouchers/tickets have to be used by?

I'd argue that The Sun is losing money on this deal, so buying it for this offer alone is OK.

anything that increases their circulation is to be avoided as far as im concerned.

Nice

great deal , i do it every year

I really don't want to be a kill joy but it appears to be a repeat publication as it's dated 28th February 2009. Seeing as we're in February 2010 we might just be a year too late. If the tokens are back this year then cracking job I just buy the Sun when I want the holidays or the freebies they give out!

its not repeated as they mention the new ride 13, and in the terms and conditions the closing date is 17th march 2010

# The closing date for applications is strictly 17 March 2010, we will not be able to honour applications received after this date.

That article at the end of the link is from 2009, so its in the past, not future. Look at the top of the page, it says "Published 28th Feb 2009". I am not doubting that there is a deal this year, but the link is from last years promotion.

Edit: Saying that, they talk about Sat 27th.. Last year the 27th was a Friday, so this is from this year.. Clearly they have just done a copy/paste and not corrected all of the dates.

Why has this been expired ... is it confirmed that its not a 2010 deal ?

Thanks

its this years deal ! all the dates match up

they talk about 13 ! in the advert ,lol, some people on here are nooobs

This is a great deal, as previous posters have said, sell yours on eBay and buy the date you want. (unless your lucky and can go the date they give u)

Think the weekend paper is more expensive.

I think I am correct when thinking: of those who applied before to this deal last year were sent a special token through the post.

So am l reading this right the first token is in saturdays sun ?

yes i got sent one, these were from last year
