Re: Events Calendar 2021

Would the October 16th event be for Scaremazing by any chance? Would be good to know so I could at least provisionally put it on my calendar. Hope it's on this year. The intention is to host a Halloween event at the Resort in a similar fashion to ScareMazing, however it all depends on what level of...

Re: What's your honest opinion of Alton Towers?

For foreigners who haven't been to AT yet, or even people who have in the past, do you think Alton Towers lives up to its hype? Is Nemesis really worth it? Are there any other coasters that merit a visit? The lack of flat/dark rides bother you? In general, Alton Towers is still a good park but I th...

Re: Question about two day visits

Me and some friends are considering a two day trip to Alton Towers in the summer and we're wondering if it's better to stay at an on-site hotel or if we should get one near to the resort. Does anyone have any advice? And possibly any other tips for a multiple day visit? If your budget allows, I wou...

Hello there! Does anyone know anything about the 2021 season passes? I was promised one for my birthday but it dosn't seem like they’ll be on sale at all. Are they going to sell them when they re-open after the extended closing period because of COVID, or are they just not going to sell them at all...

Re: Alton Towers Rollercoaster Phobia

I know this is an old post. I'm terrified of rides and can only do the RMT and want to do Thirteen. Is the first drop as steep and big as it seems? It is fairly steep but it isn’t very big. There’s also a trim brake on the drop that takes some of the momentum out of it, so it’s nothing to be worrie...

I am thinking of going to the park tomorrow or Wednesday to do the Scarefest thing hopefully before the schools break up. With limited numbers what are the queue times like during Scarefest (this year), would there be any fast track passes available after 4pm? How much are they (heard about £10!). ...
