    how busy does alton towers really get?

    I'm planning on going next wednesday and need to decide whether or not to get the fast track tickets too. How long can you expect to queue at the more popular rides? Is it really that busy during the holidays?

    Thanks in advance!

    very busy.
    you can easily queue for 2 hours per ride.
    i think fast track is what you need although i have never used as we tend to go in school time.
    good luck!

    yes you need fast tracks. Oblivion, generally the queues are shorter on that for some reason? Probably 'cus everyone is scared s***less from it lol but like said above they can reach 2 hours which is ridiculous to get on a ride.

    Real busy , i would'nt bother , go somewhere like Thorpe Park , more like a 5-10 minute wait.

    wow I didnt realise it was THAT bad to queue.

    I have looked at Thorpe Park on the net - and it looks brilliant.

    My daughter went there on a school trip and only got to go on 2 rides.

    We went during the week a couple of weeks ago during school time.

    Popular rides had 80/90 minutes wait.

    Take a disabled friend and get straight onto rides by going to the exit.

    Thats the only reason im taken to theme parks lol

    We went 3 weeks ago on a week day, we did not get the fast track tickets and managed to get on 4 of the premium rides all day..

    Top tip, is to ride them "solo" it reduces queuing time if you dont mind sat by your self.

    fast track it is then! hate the fact its bloody gone up in price though.

    @retro how kind of you lol!!

    It is utterly ridiculous, a few months back I went with my family to thorpe park, got there at 10:30am left at 6pm, only got onto 4 rides. So in other words 2 minutes of thrill and 5 hours and 58 minutes of queueing.
