My family and I ventured to Alton Towers for a day. And while we had a good knee you can’t help but feel the park could do more.
It’s worth bearing in mind because of its sheer size if you’re getting there by car the car park is massive. We went on a Saturday so we had to wait ages to get in and then park quite far away as they tend to fill up the furthest away car parks first.
There in an option for a closer parking slot that could be worth the money. In saying that we paid six pounds to park and never had to show our ticket as proof so we could have four away story out paying.
When it’s busy prepare for queues. Some rides you can get fast passes for but there appears to be a limited amount available each day. We were lucky enough to have some so it helped.
There’s a steady mix of rides for all ages and plenty to keep you amused.
There’s an app you can download but it’s a bit tricky to get the hang of and it’s not as well sign posted as you’d like. I’m not sure if paper maps are provided but pit you can spent longer trying to find rides than you can queuing to get on them.
It’s not just rides, there’s also a selection of amusement arcades and fairground stalls where you’re tasked at completing a task to win a prize.
Good stalls are scattered about. The food isn’t as good as other theme parks we’ve been to and they’re quite poorly run. Again, you could spend a lot of time queuing. And when you do get served the tables you eat at could do with a clean.
Getting out is a bit of a mission as you need to try and remember exactly where you’re parked. There were other families also looking for their cars!
We would go back to Alton Towers. We’d be more prepared. Here’s hoping so would Alton Towers be more prepared.
