I dont even think there are direct buses to AT, if you can drive do so since buses that do go there arrive at around 11, train station is quite away so again you will need a bus.
ohh most departures are from stoke on trent

2 for 1s on cereal packs... If you pay for one day on the gate you can buy the next days tickets at guest services for a tenner each (even with 2 for 1 tickets).
I’m not sure where you are located but You can do Manchester Piccadilly to stoke via train, stoke to Alton towers on the x32 bus from the station.

It’s easy enough and if you get the London train I think it’s straight through about 2 hours in total.

Think the fright nights/scare fest/ Howloween events are excluded from the 2 for 1 deals.

My daughter went yesterday and used the 2 for 1 ok.
Had to pay a extra £8 for the scary maze thing though.

Oh ok. Thought these were excluded. Good to hear!
How much roughly is a taxi from the train station ?
I was there yesterday. I used the vouchers on the Cussons (half price) bottles. They were also happy to accept the 2-4-1 from a pizza.
