Literally the worst example of customer service I have ever encountered. They don’t care about their customers in the slightest and don’t want to listen to them. After years of coming here I’ll be damned if I ever return. Bought fast pass tickets for £60,...More

What a fun place for the family, this is how theme parks should be ran. Attention to detail great but I wish they would do away with parking charges as its not as if you can walk there.

We’ve been to Alton Towers a few times, tried out the new Wicker Man ride, it was pretty good. Nemesis ride was by far the most exhilarating ride we’ve been on in UK. Out of all the Merlin theme parks, Alton Towers is our favourite!

I’ve loved Alton Towers for many years. However it’s going downhill rapidly, and Merlin are running it into the ground. The atmosphere is awful, loads of stuff is shut, and it’s very dull for families. If you just want to ride coasters, it’s decent. But...More

We used clubcard vouchers to purchase tickets online, but when you book online you have to select a date and your ticket is only valid on that day.
