Alton Towers has launched a new ticket type via its website, which includes a host of other elements besides simple entry to the theme park.
The "all inclusive" ticket covers parking costs, food and drink, Fastrack queue-jumping privileges and early entry to the park. It is available now from the Alton Towers website, priced at £85 when booked 7 days in advance, £91 when booked 2-6 days in advance, or £96.50 otherwise.
The full list of features of the all inclusive ticket is given below:
- Early Ride Time - guests can enter the park an hour before it opens the public, enabling them to enjoy a selection of attractions without lengthy queues.
- Fastrack Silver - guests can skip the main queue for roller coasters Air, Nemesis, Oblivion, Rita and Thirteen.
- All Day Dining - the ticket holder can take advantage of unlimited food and drink at a selection of restaurants in the park.
- Car parking - the ticket includes a standard car parking token.
At present, the ticket is only available at adult prices. The roller coasters covered by the Fastrack element are subject to height restrictions, so the benefits for children are more limited.
Currently, booking a standard theme park ticket 7 days in advance via the official website costs £34.65, and includes Early Ride Time. Fastrack Silver is priced at £21, while a standard car parking token costs £6. All Day Dining can be purchased for £29.50 for an adult. The individual elements of the tickets can therefore be purchased for a total of £91.15, so the saving when buying an all-inclusive ticket a week in advance is £6.15.
