    Hi
    Just wondering if you can use one of the free entry tickets from the sun offer for a child admission?
    Thanks
    Helen

    • Hi Helen, as far as I am aware it only states 2 free tickets and doesn’t state whether these are adult or child tickets although the terms state that the applicant must be over 18 but I can’t see anything relating to the second ticket. An adult at Alton Towers is deemed 12 years & over.

  2. Please can you advise we have received x2 tickets for wednesday 8th October from your March offer can these be used as entry to cbeebies land? I have contacted alton towers who advised myself you decided the terms and conditions, having looked on your website I conntact see these!!!!!

    • Hi Claire, are these the 2 free tickets to Alton Towers with The Sun? Topdogdays is independent of The Sun & Alton Towers, (we just let you know where the best deals are), but I do know that Cbeebies Land is included within the Alton Towers Theme Park. So, if you have a ticket for Alton Towers, you can access Cbeebies Land:)

  3. Hi There,

    We collected all the tokens for Alton Towers and we have recieved a ticket back in the post! But im not sure if the ticket includes 2 entries??? It doesnt explain anywhere and Im reading back and its saying 2 free tickets!
    They have only sent 1 back to us! Is that correct? I have tried contacting The Sun about this but no one is getting back to us.

    Thanks Sarah

    • Hi Sarah, difficult to advise as I haven’t seen sight of these tickets. I do know that the free Sun offer was for 2 free tickets to Alton Towers and if it says that it is valid for 2 people on the back of the ticket, then it all sounds OK. If you are having no luck with The Sun, you could always contact Alton Towers directly, (we are independent of all visitor attractions), to double check.

  4. Carol Terry says:

    My tickets for 2014 haven’t arrived yet ??

    • Hi Carol, that doesn’t sound too hopeful:( We’ve heard about lots of problem with this offer this year but unfortunately we don’t have any influence over the running of this offer as we are independent of both Alton Towers & The Sun.

  5. End of Jul. still didn`t get the tickets :(

    • Hi Danna, can’t say it is looking too hopeful but unfortunately Topdogdays is not involved in the running of this offer, (we just let you know where the deals are), & we’ve been hearing plenty of similar tales about this ‘offer’ this year:(

  6. Sharon Brown brown says:

    Hi I sent the tokens of to the sun paper I I have not received my Alton tower tickets not happy my daughter is not happy to so can you please help.

    • Hi Sharon, I know you are not alone in awaiting tickets as we’ve had plenty of people contacting us with similar complaints both for the Alton Towers free ticket offer & other Merlin ticket offers. Topdogdays is independent from both Alton Towers & The Sun, (we just let you know where the deals are) & unfortunately we have no influence over the administration of this offer. I can see from the full terms & conditions of this offer that the promoter is; The Sun, 3 Thomas More Square, Thomas More Street, London, E98 1XY.

  7. I’ve still not received my tickets????

  8. michelle says:

    Now into June and still not received my tickets for Alton Towers, all the effort in posting everything precisely as they said, very disappointed, upset and angry, for such a big park they are very unreliable. Are there anyone who can take this to them with the complaints and their bad customer service !!

  9. Keith Richard Harrison says:

    I sent for my 2 free tickets with the sun offer, I had all the tokens ..etc ,filled the form in , got the s.a.e. 1st class stamps on both , did everything asked ,posted a week before deadline…. 31st May 2014 still waiting nothing arrived . Very disappointed , never had any problems recieving these tickets in previous years . would like an explanation please whats gone wrong . I know others have the same problem , why is this ? ?

    • Hi Keith, sorry to hear you are having difficulties receiving your free tickets to Alton Towers. Topdogdays is both independent of both Alton Towers & The Sun and is not involved in the running of this deal – we simply let our readers know where the deals are running. As you say, we have received a number of queries this year about this deal so you are not alone in awaiting tickets:(

  10. Kelly Chambers says:

    I sent off my application with 9 different numbered tokens and a stamped addressed envelope within plenty of time from the closing date as I purchased the paper everyday from when the offer started yet I have never heard anything back or received my tickets. This is now the second year this has happened and I am really upset this has happened again. I understand this could happen occasionally but for it to happen 2 years running is unacceptable . As I feel mislead thinking I would get free tickets to enjoy a day at Alton towers yet to this day am still waiting. Is there anything you can do or can you track my tickets as I am sure they should have been here by now.

      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Kelly, sorry to hear this. Unfortunately, Topdogdays is not involved in the running of this free ticket offer, (we just let you know when it’s running). I know you aren’t alone in waiting for tickets but fingers crossed for you:)

      • Kelly Chambers says:

        Thank you for your reply I hope you are right and I hear something soon as it’s been over 6 weeks now and as I mentioned last year I never received my tickets at all.

        • Top Dog Days
          lizwalsh says:

          Hi Kelly, very welcome. The problem with this ticket offer is there is no contact details if you need to query anything:( Anyway, good luck with it.
