We've been to Alton Towers many times before with our children, friends and family. Although, on this visit it was just me and my Wife. We are in our 50's but still loved the rides, queueing for the front on a couple. Yes, it is expensive just to turn up and pay on the day. We used our Tesco vouchers, so got in for free! It was the Easter holidays and the place was packed, however, we didn't have to queue too long for the main rides. We were at the park all day, and would agree with other reviewers that the food is poor and expensive! A decent cup of coffee is not on offer, just nescafe! That night we stayed at the Chained Oak B&B just near the park entrance which was great. See separate review.
