It's been a while since I've visited Alton Towers, probably around 7 years when I was still both child and care free. I do remember that the place held a certain magical charm that kept me coming back for more and I don't remember having a bad day there over the years, until now. Flash forward, and I went today with my wife and son (he's five) mainly because he's seen videos of the rides on YouTube and is quite adventurous so knowing there were a few he was tall enough to go on (as well as the obligatory trip into CBeebies land) off we went. Firstly, the car park charge of £6 is disgusting if I'm honest. It's already £109 for a family of three so I'm not sure I can think of a way to justify this. It was much less busy than I expected for a Bank Holiday weekend. We arrived at 10am to a car park that was probably 20% full, but we still didn't get into the park until 10.55. This was after queuing for half an hour for the monorail and another 25 minutes to get in through ticketing/security. First stop, CBeebies land. This was also the first in a line of disappointments. We headed to the Go Jetters ride which had a small queue but the sign advised a wait time of 40 minutes, which was a bit baffling, but we joined the queue anyway. It was clear immediately that the wait wasn't just about the queuing it was also the turnover on the rides from finishing and starting the next group. The term 'one speed' comes to mind. It was painful and could have been more efficient by getting people off and on a little faster. After 20 minutes waiting (during which there were only two operations of the ride) we were advised that the ride had broken and there was no estimated fix time. So we explained that to a restless 5 year old and off we go. This also happened twice to the Octonauts ride, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Twice! So we wasted 50mins in total queuing for a ride we never got to go on. We spoke to another family in the queue for Heave Ho, and they said other rides had experienced similar breakdowns. The Mr Bloom live show was excellent and really well done, but a word of caution about CBeebies Land. CBeebies is for 0-6 year olds, but the rides here are more suitable for the younger side of this. The rides are slow, not very engaging and if your kids are a bit wild like mine, they'll find it boring and it won't keep their attention. There's a lot of filler as well which is ok but feels kind of half hearted. Nina's Science Lab for example is just a room with a few fiddly objects in it and Justin's Pie-o-Matic was a strange experience too. No information as to what it was and what it was was just a room with foam balls and a few cannons with no particular aim other than to fire said balls across the room at each other and cause complete chaos for 5 minutes. I can't grasp whether CBeebies land works or not. The slow rides and slow turnover times mean the queuing is unnecessarily long, but the area is aimed at under 6's so that doesn't really work because under 6's don't do queuing. Also don't bother going into Hex if you value your ear drums because the music and sound effects are on a par with the volume of sticking your head in a wind turbine while having multiple foghorns blown in your face. Towards the end we vacated with several other families, all with fingers in their ears, through a disabled access exit. The runaway mine train was excellent, my son loved it. The same goes for Blade and the rides in Mutiny Bay where the queues were large towards the end of the day but the turnover was quick and efficient and the line moved quickly. On the way out, the monorail was not working, which caused large queues. The reason we were given was that it had got busy so they had to shut it off to put more carriages on. Of course it was busy, it was closing time!!! Why could this not have been done earlier! We ended up walking back to the car park which takes around 15 minutes. I felt like the park was becoming dated and it was disorganised. The ride operators didn't really seem to be able to co-ordinate the rides with the queues as well as they do at other parks I've been to in the UK and at abroad. It just makes it a frustrating day. With the amount of things which were breaking down so readily I would say the park has had its day, but there's investment going on with new rides, so go figure. I wouldn't come back too soon - but when my Son is older I suspect he'll want to give some of the bigger rides a go, so we'll see. There is a big armed police presence in the park, to be expected I suppose, and it was a pleasure to see their friendly nature with families and little ones. It made us feel secure and not threatened or at risk in any way. Collapse

Great day out. Good rides. The loading and unloading of rides is slow and amateurish, not a patch on the American parks. CBeebies land was full Of queues that didn't need to be there - it shouldn't take 3 minutes to load a 1 minute ride (go jetters). If you are prepared to wait and as long has you know you need a fast pass to get front row seats for anything, then it's great. Universal Florida is better value though, if you have the money Collapse

Did we enjoy ourselves, yes. Would we go again, yes but not in a hurry. We spent two days at the park over the May Bank Holiday staying one night at the Splash Landings hotel. Let's start with the hotel. Tired and need of a pick me up. Our room was for five people and whilst spacious was expensive and starting to look tatty. Simple things like one tiny bottle of body wash & one of conditioner appeared mean, as did the three little packets of biscuits for five guests. The room was basic and moderately equipped. Nearly £400 for one night, with breakfast and two days park entrance was excessive given the room quality. You're paying for the convenience but I'd think very carefully if I was you. The buffet dinner was not bad but at £21 for adults and £18 for children I would have expected an awful lot more. The park - On the whole, one of the better UK theme parks. Staff on the whole are friendly and helpful, everybody in the service industry is allowed one bad day once in a while. As per most UK attractions, food and drink inside the park is extortionate. Take a picnic or even a Tesco meal deal purchased on the way. Staff away from the over priced park offerings. Worth a visit, I'd say so. And now my complaint. Should a paying visitor point out to a member of staff another visitor urinating behind a fence please deal with it properly. We visited with three children and witnessed this filthy individual doing this in front of us. We pointed it out to a passing member of staff on the Sunday afternoon by the Runaway Train. I appreciate the park cannot be held responsible for it's guests but I would have expected this to have been dealt with better than a "slap on the wrist". Signs warn of ejection for queue jumping, why was this individual allowed to remain in the park running back to his party laughing. On the whole Alton Towers, a not bad visit let down by the actions of others. Something that could have been dealt with a whole lot better. Very disappointing. Collapse
