Alton Towers has announced details of its February opening period in 2010, including a list of the attractions that will be operating.
The event precedes the official start of the 2010 season on March 20, and will take place from February 13-21 (to coincide with half-term for UK schools). Although the park's new Secret Weapon 6 rollercoaster is not expected to be operating, the majority of existing rides will be. Park hours will be shorter than usual - 10am to 4pm.
Annual Passes are valid for the event, with reduced entry fees being offered for day guests for previous February opening periods. Although Alton Towers has recently raised ticket prices for the second time in a year, Tescos shoppers can purchase tickets using Clubcard reward vouchers to save money.
The Rita: Queen of Speed rollercoaster, located close to the Secret Weapon 6 construction site, will not be operating. It is expected to be re-themed as part of a transformation of the Ug Land area to accommodate the new super-headliner.
