When did you go
The pods are just awful literally beds and that’s it and the breakfast I wouldn’t bother with 🤮
Just beware only open 10 till 4 midweek off peak,
I went last week, there is social distancing in queues but it's not enforced. Masks on rides are though. Queue times were much longer than usual as ride carriages aren't full due to distancing. Personally I wouldn't bother going unless it was off peak i.e. weekdays and not school holidays.
I really wouldn't bother with Alton Towers this year. Queuing times for the big rides are around 2 hours, poor covid measures in place. It's simply not worth the money or risk at the moment
