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?

If anyone knows please tell me! Thank you!
Right now no-one knows.

The Resort have said that they’ll review things “in the New Year” but I think it’s much more likely that they’ll wait until they know what the season will look like and what restrictions they’ll be under.

It’s possible they’ll release something a bit later in the year that will cover the remainder of the season.

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?

Really it's down to cost. The on-site hotels are great, but expensive. It's very convenient being able to stay next to the park, and the various themed rooms and facilities add that little bit of magic to the stay.

If your budget allows, I would stay on-site.

For me it just adds so much more to the trip than doing a single day or staying off-site. It’s a feeling that I can’t really put my finger on, but there’s something about staying at the Resort that really enhances your experience.

While the standard rooms in ATH and Splash are decent enough, given the choice I would always opt for either a themed room or a lodge in the Enchanted Village, which is arguably the most magical of all the accommodation options.
