Alton Towers DigiPass; More Top Tips

6. Merlin Passholders may prefer to opt for the DigiPass that covers all 4 theme parks throughout the season. If you tend to make ride photography purchases throughout the year & plan to visit more than one park, this could be the pass for you.

8. Unfortunately Alton Towers no longer offers Photo Passes at the park.

9. Passholders can pick up a 20% discount off standard price photos but cannot pick up any further discount off the 2 for £15 offer.

    The digital photos
    how do you receive these ?
    are they on a memory stick
    or sent to your phone
    or is it a code for the customer to go onto site and down load on to phone to be able to print photos off


    • With the digipass at Alton Towers, you will receive a wristband on the day of visit to the park. Simply present this wristband to the staff at the ride photo booth and they will add this to your digital download collection. You can then access your images online that you can then store, save and/or print off as many as you wish. Hope this helps, Liz
