Please post all QUICK QUESTIONS in this topic. :D

The reason we do this is because we often get a lot of topics clogging up the board which can be easily answered in a single post. :)

For your reference:

Quick Questions - 2006 Season

Alton Towers' Official Site - for queries about contacting Alton Towers, Hotels availability, ticket prices, height restrictions, Hotel booking quotes etc etc.

TowersTimes - for more in-depth information on the park, rides, events, history, and for a plethora of media. Please check the site if it possibly could answer your question.

How Busy? - Please use this topic if you desire the crystal ball gazing talents of the TTF members RE how busy the park will be on a given day. ;)

Any topics deemed as 'quick questions' will be merged into this topic, thank you please!! :D

EDIT: This topic will be heavily moderated, so please keep all discussion and spam out of it, as it shall be removed, faaaanks.



Kaycee and the TTF Team.

Is there only one way across FV when the SkyRide isn't operating? I only ask because as you might know, I'm visually impaired (not blind, but it stops me driving) and that walk, well, the way me and my mates did it last season, is very bumpy and I find it a bit hard to keep my balance.

And also, I know this is a quick question topic, but the question of where to eat has prompted me to give a tip. It might cost more, but me and my mates found out that it's far better to eat smaller things all through the day than one big meal. And for doing this, the take away kiosks are great. (Mmmmm, waffles....)
The Lonely end of the Rink- a great song, and it\'s usually the case when I go ice skating because I just can\'t keep up!

The safest was would be to go back through Gloomy Wood, Katanga Canyon and Merrie England or once the Haunted Hollow is open, I'd take that.

I wouldn't advise going through the Gardens.

(First post, woo)
Just a quick question. I'm heading to AT on the 2nd of April and booked my tickets online, I have the reference to pick them up on the day.
I'm just wondering if you can still purchase the bounceback tickets for a second day (my friends and me are staying down there on the 2nd and are planning on going on the 3rd also). Last year I'm sure they were like £10, but I'm just curious if anyone else has got one this season?
Nick

When your in the park, go back to the entrance turnstiles , and to the right hand side is a window, you can buy the Bounceback tickets here as long as you keep hold of your day ticket

Buy from the ticket kiosks or Guest Services. The Day Designer stands around the may be selling them too I guess

I have a question, is a person of my age (14) allowed to buy a Tussauds annual pass? or do you have to be over 16?

A question about the Skyride. Can you get on at Towers Street, stay on at Forbidden Valley and then get off at is it UG Land or Cred Street? Or must you get off at Forbidden Valley.
Thankyou
