Alton Towers Deals and Thrill Hopper Tickets

Thrill Hopper tickets are valid from from 1 February to 30 November 2015, (excludes bank holiday weekends & special events), with a single ticket priced at £60.00 per person or a family ticket, (2 adults & 2 children) for £170.00.

  1. I’m stopping in the hotel on Saturday 6th June, can I use tickets from my tesco clubcard to make use of early ride time on Sunday?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Maxine, unfortunately you cannot pick up early ride time with tickets purchased with tesco club card vouchers:(

      • Hi Liz

        Thanks for the info.
        Has that changed this year because previous years it was just as long as you stayed in the hotel, a friend of mine used the Sun free tickets last year, thanks Maxine

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Maxine, Alton Towers state that early ride time is ‘only available for guests who have pre booked Theme Park tickets as a part of their accommodation package.’ Worth double checking with Alton Towers if in doubt.

  2. Can I use my 2for 1 on bank holiday Monday 25th may?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Mel, each 2 for 1 has slightly differing terms & conditions – which 2 for 1 do you have & which attraction are you looking to visit?

  3. I have two £24 off vouchers. Can I use them both at the same time when I get to Alton towers?

    • Hi Sam, are these the Procter & Gamble £24 off entry vouchers for Alton Towers that is valid until 1 June 2015? In the terms & conditions it states ‘Only one voucher can be used per person and per transaction.’ However, if need be just do 2 separate transactions.

  4. maxine Whiteway-roberts says:

    Hi, We are planning to come to Alton Towers in June and wondered whether you are still running the offer where you can upgrade your day ticket to an annual pass once in the park? We did this a couple of years ago and it was a great deal.
    Thanks very much.

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Maxine, I have contacted Alton Towers who have confirmed that this offer is still running at the park. You will need to retain your entrance tickets and take them with you to the resort box office once in the park. If you upgrade to an annual pass, they will deduct the entrance charges from your annual pass upgrade.

  5. Me and my partner have sun free tickets for Alton towers. Would we be able to use these for ourselves and pay for a child to get in with us?

    • Hi Rebecca, yes you can take additional visitors with you – it states in the terms & conditions that ‘This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discount. Any further additional visitors accompanying offer ticket holders must pay the full admission price at any admission kiosk at the park’

  6. pendergrast says:

    We have a family ticket for alton. Free from sun . Will buy another buy one get 1 free ticket for the other 2 children. ….. but …. Once in park. … can i buy the 10 pound return tomorrow ticket each ? Even for those who had the free ticket ? … if so will get a hotel…..

    • Hi, unfortunately I’m not sure of the details of the free family ticket offer that you have so you are best checking the terms & conditions of this offer. With the 2 free individual tickets to Alton Towers with The Sun promotion that recently ran, you can take advantage of the come back ticket offer as long as you retain your original tickets and purchase second day tickets before you leave the park..however, this could be a different promotion…

  7. Hi.
    I am using the Kellogg’s 2for1 vouchers to gain entry into the Alton Towers next week for 2 adults and 2 children. Can I still buy the “come back” discounted tickets before I leave the park on the first day? It says on the kelloggs terms and conditions that they cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer so I just wanted to clarify. Thanks

    • Hi Claire, you cannot combine the 2 for 1 voucher with any other offer to gain entry to Alton Towers on the first day, (eg tickets purchased online etc). However, once you are in the park, keep hold of your entrance tickets and you can purchase come back tickets for another day BEFORE you leave the park on the initial day.

  8. Is it two late to collect codes from sun for alton towers as I and my two kids would like to go in July thank you

    • Unfortunately Glenda, this Alton Towers free tickets promotion has almost finished so unless you have already acquired tokens/codes it is too late to start collecting now:(

  9. What about a child ( 6 years old), could I use a free ticket from the Sun for him or is it only for adults?

    • Hi Anna, you have to be 18 years and over to apply for these free tickets for Alton Towers but my understanding is that you are free to take a guest of any age:)

  10. Hi, I am going on sat 8th nov with my wife, 8 year old and 1 year old children. We have a £24 off voucher from daz which I was wondering if it would work on that date thanks!

    • Hi Peter, within the terms & conditions of this Procter & Gamble promotion it states that the ‘Voucher is valid until 01.06.15 at the Alton Towers Resort excluding Theme Park closed dates (10.11.14-13.02.15 and 23.02.15-20.03.15). Dates subject to change–check opening dates & times before your visit at’ I can’t see anything about exclusion dates over the firework events but this is quite unusual as most other vouchers do exclude the 8 & 9 November, (Walkers half price, Kelloggs Grown Ups Go Free, The Sun 2 for 1 voucher). Perhaps best checking this one with Alton Towers just to be sure.

  11. Hello, I was wondering if you know if National Rail’s 2FOR1 Alton Tower tickets are valid during the Scarefest period. T&Cs say it excludes secondary ticketed events/hotel events/concerts at all Attractions but i am not sure if that includes Scarefest! Thanks :)

    • Hi Kate, the only way to be certain is to order, (for free) a 2 for 1 voucher for Alton Towers and then print it off as the full terms & conditions are then printed on the actual voucher.

  12. Hi I am planning on going to fright night at Alton Towers on the 29th of October 2014 is there any 2 for 1 vouchers that are valid for this date?

    • Hi Paul, Kelloggs Grown Ups Go Free Vouchers & Walkers Half Price vouchers are valid during the Scarefest period at Alton Towers. Alternatively, you can also pick up a 2 for 1 voucher in The Sun, (running each day until 17 October), that is also valid during Alton Towers Scarefest.

  13. Hi, I purchased 3 return tickets in may for £15 each and im going in October for scarefest when Im there can I also buy the cheap next day return tickets?

    • Hi Peter, I like your thinking! This query came up with someone else a couple of months ago and I have to say, I’m not sure….not very helpful I know:( As you know, the comeback ticket offer is only available from within the park when you present your original admission tickets at the Box Office…if your ticket is simply a standard ticket, when who is to know but I’m not sure if there are any restriction on a further come back ticket. If you could feedback if it works, be great to pass this on to others.

  14. tracy jurkojc says:

    Hi,are there any date restrictions on the adults go free vouchers.

    • Hi Tracy, you can use the Kelloggs Grown Ups Go Free voucher at Alton Towers all this season excluding 8-9 November 2014:)

  15. Fiona Flinders says:

    i have a £24 off voucher for Alton Towers, I am wanting to take my 2 year old t Cbeebies land but obviously he will be free – can i only redeem the voucher with 1 paying adult/child?

    • Hi Fiona, it depends which voucher you have…is it a Procter & Gamble half price voucher that offers £24 off entry? This offers one half price adult entry so there are no accompanying rules with this offer, (eg requiring a second person to pay full pull price entry as needed for a 2 for 1 voucher). As your 2 year old is free, this is ideal promotion that offers you half price entry to Alton Towers & your child free entry:)

  16. I have a free adult entry voucher when accompanied by a full paying child. In addition I have a forty pound voucher from nectar. If I am taking two children, can I pay full price for one child to activate the free adult voucher … And use the nectar voucher to pay for the other child?

    • Hi Steven, I like your thinking although within the full terms & conditions, (I’m assuming the Kelloggs Grown Ups Go Free voucher?) it does state that ‘ The voucher is not valid for use in conjunction with any other offer or concession.’ However you could take the nectar voucher, (& perhaps have a half price voucher say from a promotional single packet of Walkers Crisps) to see if the ticket staff will allow a second transaction with a further concession?

  17. I have vouchers from fairy soap powder which says £24 off entry to alton towers how much will it make my entrance fee

    • Hi Susan, this fairy soap powder promotion offers one half price adult entry, (an adult is classed as 12 years and over), so £24 to pay at the gate at Alton Towers.

  18. Hi, I have a 2 for 1 voucher which says it is not valid for 9th & 10th of November, along with the other usual restrictions of special events etc. We are planning on going to the fireworks display on the 8th November, do you think we will be able to use the voucher?

    • Tracey…not an easy one to answer. Generally 2 for 1 vouchers exclude special events such as firework nights, concerts etc. Whilst your 2 for 1 voucher doesn’t specifically exclude the 8 November, it could be excluded under the ‘special events’ terms & conditions. Perhaps best to secure firm clarification from Alton Towers directly with this query to avoid disappointment.

  19. Hi I have 2 for 1 tickets for alton towers and was wondering can these be used for the fireworks display on the 9th November 13

    • Natasha, there are so many different 2 for 1 vouchers available for Alton Towers that you would need to check the small print on the voucher to check for exclusion dates. In generally terms, many 2 for 1 vouchers for Alton Towers are not valid for firework dates:(

  20. Hi, i have got a free adult entry voucher for alton tower, so in order to use the voucher does my friend need to buy full adult ticket on the same day or we can pre purchase the ticket.

    • Hi Messer, unfortunately you cannot use a 2 for 1 voucher with tickets already purchased online. A 2 for 1 voucher for Alton Towers can only be used when accompanied by a person, (often an adult), that has purchased a full price ticket on the day of their visit at the ticket booth. This is because 2 for 1 vouchers stipulate that they cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or concession & online tickets include a discount already.

  21. daniel bate says:

    how many vouchers do you have to get for alton towers

    • Daniel, Each voucher offers the 1 person free entry, (the lower paid person) when accompanied by a full paying adult. These vouchers usually work on a one voucher per person per transaction basis. So you will need to split into two’s at the Alton Towers ticket kiosk and ensure you have enough vouchers for the size of your party.

  22. Hi I have some vouchers to send in but can’t find the address pls could you send me it thanks

    • B Harlond, I think you are referring to the free tickets to Alton Towers with The Sun newspaper? The address is SUN/ALTON TOWERS OFFER, PO BOX 5,

  23. i have recently purchased mcvities cakebars which have a 2 for 1 offer on the pack it does state scarefest below the offer does this mean i will be able to use the 2 for 1 offer during the scarefest period
    many thanks

    • Joely, the promotional packs of McVities car bars, state that the 2 for 1 Alton Towers vouchers are valid from 1 Sept 2012 – 30 April 2013 excluding 2-4 November 2012, park closures & concerts…so fine for Alton Towers Scarefest.

  24. Can I use 2 for 1 O2 priority moments code during scarefest? It just says it’s valid til 31st October.

    • Emily, the terms & conditions for the 2 for 1 Alton Towers voucher for O2 priority moments stipulates that you can “Use the offer between 23/05/12 – 31/10/12, excludes any special events/hotel events/concerts’. Special events in Merlin 2 for 1 vouchers usually relates to corporate events & concerts etc rather than Scarefest.

  25. I have 2 for 1 vouches and was wondering if they are valid for scarefest. I have checked the terms and conditions on the website and it doesn’t say anything about not using the 2 for 1 on scarefest dates

    • Katie, each 2 for 1 voucher for Alton Towers should have a ‘valid to’ date on the terms & conditions plus any exclusion dates that apply. If your 2 for 1 voucher is valid during the Scarefest period, (don’t worry about ‘special events’ exclusions as this relates to concerts, corporate dates etc), this should be fine.

  26. My daughter is planning to go to Scarefest at Alton towers with friends, I have a ticket which I got with Tesco points, can I use a tesco alton towers voucher for scarefest?

    • Kerry, the terms & conditions of the Tesco clubcard vouchers for Alton Towers state ‘Reward Tokens are valid for six months from the date the Token was issued (inclusive). See Rewards Token for validity dates’so worth checking on the reward token for any exclusion dates.’ I know in previous years, the rewards vouchers have been valid for scarefest but worth double checking on the token to be sure.

  27. Hi I’ve got a clubcard reward voucher for Alton towers can I use this with a 241 voucher

    • Hi Theresa, I like your thinking but unfortunately you cannot use the two promotions together…a 2 for 1 voucher for Alton Towers cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or promotion.

  28. Sorry was meant to say I’m going to Alton towers and vouchers are from tescos.

  29. I have got 2 for 1 vouchers from telcos, I am planning to go on 4th June which is bank holiday Monday. Are the vouchers still valid for that date as its a bank holiday? Thanks

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Nicola, Tesco have issued a number of 2 for 1 vouchers for Merlin attractions/Alton Towers so best to read the small print on the back of the voucher that stipulates any exclusion dates at Alton Towers. Generally speaking, 2 for 1’s for Alton Towers tend to exclude special events/concerts, fireworks, (November) & part of scarefest, (October) but fine for bank holidays….best to just check the fine print though to avoid any disappointment.

  30. hi i was just wondering if i can use 241 when i book online i dont really know what deal to do im staying one night and want the next day for 9 pound but dont no what deals best… there are four of us thank you

  31. Hi – Can I pick up a come back ticket at Alton Towers if I use a 2 for 1 voucher for the first day?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Alik, yes you can indeed use a 2 for 1 voucher to gain entry to Alton Towers and then make use of the come back ticket for a subsequent day at the park. The only condition is that come back tickets must be bought from inside Alton Towers on the day of the initial visit. The are two different come back tickets…one for the next day, (priced at £9 per person) or one for later inthe season, (priced at £15 per person).

  32. Hi there – where is the best place to pick up a 2 for 1 voucher for Alton Towers?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Tom, if you can get to a Tesco store, then check out the 200 tesco branded items that all have a 2 for 1 voucher for Alton Towers within….easy to spot which items as the 2 for 1 voucher will be advertised on the front of each branded item. Alternatively, pick up a promotional Fox’s Rocky Bar that are running a 2 for 1 voucher for Alton Towers.

  33. Dot Byrne says:

    How can I pick up a deal at Alton Tower plus Early Ride Time?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      There are currently three ways to pick up Early Ride Time at Alton Towers; stay at the hotel, book tickets online or use an Annual Pass, (Theme Park, Merlin or Merlin Premium Annual Pass). The cheapest option would be to book tickets online with Alton Towers & they are currently running a deal that offers a 40% discount if you book 7 days or more in advance. If you are planning to visit other Merlin Attractions during the year, you may wish to consider investing in a Merlin Pass that offers Early ride Time too…always worth checking out Merlin Pass deals if you are looking to go down this route.

  34. Plenty of great deals for Alton Towers & interested in the Thrill Hopper. How does this deal work?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      A Thrill Hopper ticket is a combined discounted ticket that offers you entry to all four visitor attractions in Staffordshire, (Alton Towers, Drayton Manor, Water World & Snow Dome) & can be used throughout the year, (some restrictions on use). The price of the Thrill Hopper ticket is all you pay for the season and offers great value for money.

  35. Hi, can some one please let me know- Me and my boyfriend are going to alton towers in a couple of weeks and we have a 2 for 1 voucher, if we buy two fast track tickets can we use these with a 2 for 1 entry?

    • To make use of the 2 for 1 voucher, you will need to purchase entrance tickets on the day and present your 2 for 1…you cannot purchase tickets online with a 2 for 1. You can purchase fastrack tickets at Alton Towers on the day, (providing they haven’t sold out but shouldn’t be a problem at Alton Towers) but you will not get any discounts or 2 for 1’s on fastrack tickets unfortunately.

  36. Hi,
    Calling all ‘Sun’ free ‘Alton Towers’ ticket holders?
    Can anyone swap the 2 adult free tix, dated 12/6/12 pls?
    Stupid me,my son has exam that day!

    • Not a good idea trying to swap free Alton Towers tickets as this does goes against the terms & conditions of the offer and thus invalidates the ticket.

  37. if you use a 2 4 1 voucher can you still get in for £9 the next day?

  38. I need to know the address to send off my Alton towers tokens to please can someone help x

    • Hi Charnie, the address is Sun/Alton Towers offer, PO Box 5, Colchester, CO2 8GE. Applications must be received by 22 March 2012.

  39. Where can i get some 2 for 1 tickets?

    • 2 for 1 vouchers for the 2012 season tend to start coming out around March time. The Kellogg’s 2 for 1 vouchers remain valid until June 2012 if you have managed to pick those up at all. Another option is the half price Merlin Pass sale that is currently running.

  40. I’v got buy one get one free tickets from the sun can i use these for scare fest??

  41. Hi are the promotions still going on eg kellogs, vanish etc? I went and had a look yesterday but couldn’t find any in tesco express?
    Need the 2 for 1 voucher for this week! If you could get back to me I will be so so grateful

    • Perhaps worth shopping around as it is only on promotional packets. I know someone who picked up a Fox’s biscuits 2 for 1 voucher last week so worth keeping an eye out for that too.

  42. We bought come back tickets when in Alton Towers but can’t see a date on them when they run out.
    Can’t find it on website.
    Does anyone know when these are valid till – I hope Oct 30th but not sure!!

    • There are two different come back tickets that run through the season; the first offers a return trip for the following day for £10.20 an adult & £6 a child or the second allows you to come back later in the season for £15 an adult & £10.80 a child. It will depend which ticket you have purchased as to whether you can use this come back deal. There should also be a date on the come back ticket indicating when this ticket is valid until.

  43. christopher leake says:

    hi there how do i get 2 for 1 tickets at alton towers.thank you,chris

    • Plenty of options for 2 for 1 vouchers for Alton Towers; why not try promotional packs of Kelloggs cereal or Vanish products that have vouchers for many of the Merlin attractions around the UK.

  44. Hi am going to Alton Towers mid October – does anyone know if these deals above (Kelloggs, Fanta, KP) are still on packets? Does anyone know of any other promotions?

  45. thanks this is great…love it !

  46. Heyy, i’m going to alton towers next week, does anyone know where I can get a 2 for 1 voucher from?
    thanks :)

  47. ugust to Alton for 3 adults and 15 year old what is the best deal please

    thank you claire

    • An ‘adult’ at Alton Towers is deemed anyone over the age of 12, so you’ll need to purchase 4 adult tickets. Your best bet would be 2 for 1 vouchers that are available on promotional packets of Kellogg’s cerials or Fanta or half price vouchers that are available on promotional packets of KP nuts & crisps. You will need to purchase 2 full price tickets from the ticket booths on the day and receive 2 free entries. If does state on the vouchers only 1 voucher per person per transaction…so you may need to split into two’s at the booths.

  48. hi Liz

    Can ou tell me the best deal to Alton Towers for Thursady 31 August

  49. anahita mohajerani says:

    hi,2 adult and little girl 7 wants to go to altown tower by 7 0f august or 14th ,any idea where can i get 2 for 1 ticket .thanks

    • I think your best bet will be a 2 for 1 voucher for Alton Towers and paying for a full price child’s ticket at the ticket booths on the day. With a 2 for 1 voucher, you must purchase a full priced adult ticket from the ticket booths on the day or your visit; this will allow the second adult free entry to the park. Unfortunately, you cannot puchase an online childrens ticket & take advantage of the online discount available – so if you use a 2 for 1 voucher, you will need to purchase a full price child’s ticket on the day too.

      Your other option is to redeem Tesco vouchers for a Tesco rewards token for your child, (£13 in tesco vouchers), but I don’t think you will have time for this if you are planning to go in the next couple of weeks.

  50. Great tip if you have any younger children when you visit Alton Towers. You can all queue up then any riders go on the ride, when they exit they can ask for a parent swap ticket and the other parent/carer who had to wait with the younger child can go on without queing, the same as fast track. Someone with you can also go back on. Got our 2 for 1’s at the Co-op.

    • Thanks for the tip about parent swap tickets for Alton Towers; this is a great way to beat the queues for those with younger children.

  51. Hi Liz, four adults wanting to go to Alton Towers this Friday ( 17th ) any ideas where I can get 2 for 1 offers ? Many thanks

    • Hi, pick up a promotional packet of Kelloggs cereal, KP crisps or nuts, Vanish product or can of Fanta that all come with a 2 for 1 voucher for Alton Towers. If you can visit Monday to Thursday during June, Alton Towers online can offer a good reduced price ticket that includes early ride time as well – unfortunately, this is not available on a Friday. Hope this helps.

  52. I got my 2-4-1 from burger king, got a full adult meal and received 2 2-4-1 tickets… Did the same last year but the odeon cinema were promoting those. :)

    • A great way to pick up a deal for Alton Towers. You got in just in time as the Burger King deals finished on 31 May. However there are plenty of other 2 for 1 vouchers for Alton Towers floating around!

  53. Any other 2 for 1 vouchers i can get for theme park?

    • There are plenty of 2 for 1 vouchers for Alton Towers available, so whatever you do make sure you don’t pay full price for a day at Alton Towers. We also list 2 for 1 vouchers for Thorpe Park, Legoland, Chessington World of Adventure, Drayton Manor and other top visitor attractions as the deals come in.

  54. but can u go to thomas land

    • Thomas Land is at Drayton Manor, also based in Staffordshire. If you were looking to combine Alton Towers & Drayton Manor, you may wish to consider the Thrill Hopper ticket that offers discounted entrance to both attractions

    if i buy a ticket online for alton towers can i use my 2for1 voucher from cokezone for me and my friend when we get to the gate at the resort.?

    • As with most of these 2 for 1 vouchers for Alton Towers, vouchers only entitle the holder to one FREE ENTRY per voucher and per full paying adult.

      As online tickets for Alton Towers are discounted, this would not be valid with your cokezone 2 for 1 voucher. You will need to take the voucher to the ticket booth on the day of your visit and purchase a full price ticket.

  58. Hi, Im going to Alton Towers with a group of 14 people end of May. What would you suggest would be the best deal/ cheapest deal? Thanks.

    • Alton Towers do run group offers depending upon the type of group you are. More details available at
      However you may find it more cost effective to collect the 2 for 1 vouchers and split into twos at the ticket kiosks, (usually these 2 for 1 vouchers only allow 1 voucher per transaction).

      Hope this helps

    • Generally an ‘adult’ at Merlin attractions is deemed as someone over the age of 12 years. Worth checking the small print on your 2 for 1 voucher or contacting the Merlin attraction you wish to visit before you go to avoid any difficulty.

  64. Hi, does anyone know of any places to get 2-4-1 vouchers for Alton towers at the moment. Thinking of going on the 5th of April and can’t seem to find any. Please help?

    are WHSMITHS currently sell the 2-1 offers???

    • I have no official date for when these 2 for 1 vouchers for Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Chessington etc will no longer be distributed from WH Smiths. They were still issuing them last week, so if you are out it’s worth just popping in to see if they are currently still available.
      Alternatively, pick up a promotional pack of Kellogg’s Cornflakes, Rice Krispies or Frosties that carry a 2 for 1 voucher on the side of the packet.

  66. Liz,
    We’re thinking of going to Alton Towers in the next few days. When is it open?

    These 2 for 1 offers are great – thanks!
