    Hi, I am interested to buy the cereals with 2 for 1 offer for Alton Towers please for my neices 13th birthday surprise but cannot see any in Sainsburys where I normally shop, if you could specify which cereal boxes they may be on and maybe the shops too, many thanks.

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Joy, it is worth shopping around at different supermarkets that carry branded goods as these vouchers are readily available. This promotion is running on promotional items of Kellogg’s cereal brands; Crunchy Nut,
      Crunchy Nut Variants, Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies, Coco Pops, Frosties & Krave. Also worth looking out for select Kellogg’s snack bars that also carry the 2 for 1 voucher on promotional packs of Nutrigrain Elevenses Bakes, Nutrigrain Fruit Bars, Squares, Winders, Cereal Milk Bars including Coco Pops, Frosties & Rice Krispies. Good luck in your search, Liz

  2. joanne wood says:

    hi can you use 2 for 1 offers on a 2 day ticket ?
    Thank you

    • Hi Joanne, unfortunately you cannot use a 2 for 1 voucher against 2 days entry tickets. All vouchers can only be used against 1 day full price tickets and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers or discounted ticket promotions, Liz

  3. Rita Swarbrick says:

    Hello

    Just wondered if you have any 2 for tickets at the moment and are there any restrictions.
    Many thanks

    • Hi Rita, our Alton Towers Scarefest Guide provides details of eligible 2 for 1 vouchers. It is recommended that any 2 for 1 voucher used is redeemed, online, in advance, to guarantee entry to the theme park as Scarefest is often one of the most busiest times of the season, Liz

  4. Forgot to get my parking voucher before I left the park. What do I do?

    • Hi Liz, there is usually staff on the exit barriers at Alton Towers so you’ll be explain what has happened and hopefully they will be able to resolve your situation, Liz

  5. Hi josh wondering if anyone knows we’re I can find at 2 for 1 voucher at the minute
    And how many 2 for 1 can you use

    • Hi Danielle, you can only use one 2 for 1 voucher per person and per transaction. There are plenty of 2 for 1 options available for Alton Towers but promotional tickets are limited each day so worth redeeming in advance to ensure entry on the day, Liz

  6. sandra pheby says:

    Hi we have booked using a 2 for 1 voucher, if someone in the party comes down with covid can you change the date?

    • Hi Sandra, unfortunately 2 for 1 vouchers for Alton Towers are non-transferable. You could contact Alton Towers directly to see if there is any flexibility but I suspect they will stand behind their terms and conditions for these vouchers, Liz

  7. Can I use carex vouchers to get discount then pay the balance with tesco vouchers?

    • Hi Ruth, nice idea but unfortunately if you are using any 2 for 1 voucher you cannot use it in conjunction with any other deal, discount or promotion including Tesco clubcard vouchers, Liz

  8. Hi,

    I have some half price ticket codes from carex, one of our party is disabled bur I can’t see any option for a disabled person and their carer. How would we go about booking them in, would they still be able to get a half price ticket and still get a free carer pass?

    Hope that makes sense.

    Many thanks

    • Hi Becca, Alton Towers provide the following information;
      Guests who have the relevant documentation are entitled to one free carer ticket, (see Alton Towers for further information). The guest with the disability and any further members of their party will pay full price. Please show the relevant paperwork as well as suitable photo ID of the named recipient at the ticket kiosk when you buy or collect your ticket/s. Please note: Entry Tickets for all guests, including Season/Merin Pass holders, under 3s and Carers for guests with additional needs, must be booked in advance via the Alton Towers website. The carer’s ticket can be obtained upon arrival from the Ticket Office when providing proof of disability.

      • Does that mean people with disabilities have to pay full price so that their carer can enter to assist them. Only able bodied/non disabled can get a discounted ticket with carex, Kellogs , cadburys, seabrooks etc?

        • 2 for 1 vouchers are valid for all to use and offers the voucher holder free entry when accompanied by a full paying adult, (subject to t&c’s). You may wish to clarify with Alton Towers directly what this means in terms of carer tickets as Topdogdays is independent of all visitor attractions and promotions, Liz

  9. Rebecca kiley says:

    How do u use a 241 to book tickets online please?

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Rebecca, to redeem your 2 for 1 voucher online you can either use the designated link provided, (this depends upon the voucher you are using) or go straight to the Alton Towers website, click on day ticket and then you will see a promotional code tab. Enter your unique code here and follow the instructions provided, hope this helps Liz

  10. Anne Gardiner says:

    I have 2-4-1 entry voucher on my Yazoo milkshake bottle valid from 01-09-2020 until 31-12-2022 code is V*****. Unfortunately it isn’t letting me book online. Could you be of assistance please.
    Many thanks

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Anne, sorry to hear you are having trouble redeeming your Yazoo 2 for 1 voucher for Alton Towers. You might be interested in the guidance provided by Alton Towers regarding specific codes that might be helpful to you over at Alton Towers, hope that helps, Liz.

  11. Claire Ramsay says:

    Hi, what happens if you book a short break with tickets included in price??? Where and how do you redeem the tickets???? And if you wanted to book a second day with the carex soap 2 for 1 offer, how would you do that??

    • Hi Claire, if you are booking a short break with theme park tickets directly with Alton Towers then they will manage your park entry. There are a number of packages available so you can select the option that best suits your party. In previous years, Alton Towers ran an attractive come back ticket option that offered substantial discounts on a second day at the park but I’m unsure if this is running this year, best to check with the park directly. You could indeed use a 2 for 1 for your second day – it is recommended that you redeem your voucher and pre-book tickets in advance to guarantee entry once you’ve booked your break.

    I have completed registration two free tickets Alton Towers sun newspaper offer. i am unable to enter pefered dates 6-6-18 or 7-6-18. and make payment to complete. help please asap. Charlie

    • Hi Charlie, I’m assuming you are applying via sun saver codes for your 2 free tickets in the Sun as this is the only option available for those that wish to select a specific date to visit the park? If you are experiencing difficulties with the process you are probably best contacting the Sun directly by emailing tickets@thesun.co.uk with your query, (we at Topdogdays simply let you know about the Alton Towers deals running but are not involved in the running of this promotion). Good luck, Liz

  13. Sabbie Kaur says:

    Hi

    I have a 2 for 1 voucher, i’m staying at Alton towers for 2 days can i use the other on the 2nd day??

    • Hi Sabbie, unfortunately you have to use a single 2 for 1 voucher at Alton Towers on the same day and cannot spread it out over 2 days. Have a good trip, Liz

  14. Hello, I have a 2 for 1 voucher for the Screamfest 2017 on Tuesday 31st October.
    Do you have to purchase the full price ticket to use this voucher or can this be used for the 3 maze entry ticket also?
    Thank you

    • Hi Jessica, I’m not sure which 2 for 1 voucher you have for Alton Towers Scarefest but generally all 2 for 1 vouchers require you to be accompanied by a full price paying person purchasing the on-the-gate price ticket. Once you have paid for entry to Alton Towers, there are additional charges in place for the horror mazes. Unfortunately your 2 for 1 voucher will not be valid for the maze charges.

  15. How can I buy 2 for 1 tickets to Alton Towers for 12 people for this Saturday 12th August please. Looking forward to hearing back from you in the near future. Many thanks Pam

    • Hi Pam, you will need to purchase promotional items that offer a 2 for 1 voucher for Alton Towers. Try the Kellogg’s 2 for 1 vouchers that are valid at Alton Towers at the date of your visit, (excluding 21-31 August 2017). Ensure you purchase enough vouchers to cover your full party – you will need 6 separate 2 for 1 vouchers for a party of 12 people and be mindful you may need to split into 2’s at the ticket kiosks. Have fun:)

  16. Anne-Marie says:

    I’m looking for 2 for 1 vouchers for Alton Towers that I can use in 2017, where should I look?’

    • Top Dog Days
      lizwalsh says:

      Hi Anne-Marie, there are a number of 2 for 1 vouchers available for Alton Towers that are valid during 2017. Look out for promotional packets of Kellogg’s cereals & breakfast bars that offer 2 for 1 vouchers for a range of Merlin Attractions including Alton Towers. There is a new half price offer available on promotional Carex handwash items that is valid at Alton Towers this year &, if you are planning to travel by train, there is a printable 2 for 1 voucher running through Days Out Guide. Remember 2 for 1 vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with discounted online tickets and must be redeemed against full price on-the-gate price tickets only so worth double checking the actual savings being made with a 2 for 1. Have fun, Liz

  17. John Ashton says:

    Can I pick up early ride time at Alton Towers with a 2 for 1 voucher?

    • Hi John, unfortunately early ride time at Alton Towers is not available to guests using 2 for 1 vouchers to gain entry to the park:(. Early ride time is a valuable resource as it offers you early access to the park up to 1 hour before the park opens to the public. With selected rides & attractions open each day at the park, this is a great way to get ahead of the queues so worth considering other options that do come with Early Ride Time that includes tickets purchased online at Alton Towers & Merlin Passes.

  18. Will you be printing another booking form as I couldn’t get the paper last Thursday

    • Hi Sheena, is this the newspaper application form for the free tickets offer to Alton Towers? You can currently download the form online over at The Sun Superdays if that helps?

  19. Hi, Are the Cadbury 2 for 1 vouchers valid for the firework display on 5th November at Alton Towers?

    • Hi Samantha, yes Cadbury 2 for 1 vouchers are valid at Alton Towers for the firework events subject to capacity limitations at the park, (Alton Towers are advising guests to arrive early to ensure entry into the park). Enjoy your day, Liz

  20. Hi can I use 2 for 1 Cadbury offer at alton towers on 27.10.2016 please?

    • Hi Ryan, yes the Cadbury 2 for 1 vouchers are valid at Alton Tower’s during Scarefest. As all 2 for 1 vouchers are subject to capacity limitations at the park, on busy days it is best to get there early to ensure entry.

  21. Can you use blue peter to get into thorpe park frightnight 2016

    • Hi Sop, is it Thorpe Park Fright Nights or Scarefest at Alton Towers your query was directed towards, I wasn’t sure? The terms & conditions state that Blue Peter Badges cannot be used to gain entry at Thorpe Park from 21-31 October 2016 but there are no such tipulations in place at Alton Towers. Worth noting Blue Peter badge holders must be accompanied by a ticket-bearing adult and subject to capacity at the park on the day of your visit, (you must present a valid badge and badge winner’s card).

  22. Hi
    Can I use the Kellogg’s Adult goes free offer at the Alton Towers water park only?
    Thanks

    • Hi Barbara, unfortunately you cannot use the Kellogg’s voucher at Alton Towers Waterpark as they are only valid at the theme park.

  23. Denise walker says:

    how do I book a hotel stay only, as we already have annual passes?

    • Hi Denise, there are special discounted rates available for Passholders opting to stay overnight at the Alton Towers Resort. There used to be a Passholders area on the website for those looking to stay over but I’ve also had trouble locating this. It might be easier to contact Alton Towers by phone to make your booking.

  24. 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.

  25. 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?

  26. 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.

  27. 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.
    Maxine

    • 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.

  28. 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’

  29. 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…

  30. 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.

  31. 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:(

  32. 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:)

  33. 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!

  34. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. 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.

  37. 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:)

  38. 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?
    Thanks.

    • 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:)

  39. 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?

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

  42. 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:(

  43. 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.

    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.

  45. 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,
      COLCHESTER, CO2 8GE.

  46. 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

    • 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.

  47. 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.

  48. 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.

  49. 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.

  50. 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.

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

  52. 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

      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.

  53. Steph, you can’t use a 241 online but must present the 241 voucher at the ticket the booth on the day of your visit. The 2 for 1 gives you the best value for money, (just double check all the exclusion dates & terms/conditions before you set off) and you can still pick up come back tickets for the next day, (remember to purchase your come back tickets before you leave the park on the first day). Alternatively you can currently purchase tickets with a 40% discount if you pre-book 7 or more days in advance. Whilst this will save you less money, you can take advantage of Early Ride Time. You can find out more details of the relative merits of 2 for 1 Vs 40% off at;

  54. 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).

  55. 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.

  56. 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.

  57. 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.

  58. 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.

  59. 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.

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

  61. 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.

  62. 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.

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

  64. 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.

  65. 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!!
    Thanks

    • 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.

  66. 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.

  67. 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?
    Thanks

  68. thanks this is great…love it !

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

  70. 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.

  71. hi Liz

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

  72. 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.

  73. 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.

  74. 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.

  75. 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!

  76. 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.

  77. 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

  78. for example : frosted wheats, rasin wheat

    • As far as I am aware, the 2 for 1 vouchers for Alton Towers are available on Kelloggs Frosties, Rice Krispies & Cornflakes

  79. on the side od a kellogs box
    theres a 1 for 2 ticket voucher

  80. cory macleod says:

    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.

  81. 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 http://www.merlingroups.co.uk/default.aspx
      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

    hmmmm dunno

  84. Can anyone help with this one – looking for vouchers for Gulliver’s World?

  85. Amirah Akram says:

    oh pleeeeeaaaaaaaaase i really want a voucher send me 1 can you print a voucher out????

    • Thanks for getting in touch about 2 for 1 vouchers for Alton Towers. There are plenty of ways to secure a 2 for 1 voucher – try the link to Alton Towers online that offers a 2 for 1 voucher that includes Early Ride Time. Alternatively moneysupermarket offer a free child voucher that you can also download online until 15 May 2011.

  86. hi does any 1 no if the 241 vouchers include kids to or just adults

    • 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.

  87. 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?

    • Try buying a box of Kellogg’s Frosties, Cornflakes or Rice Krispies as promotional packs are carrying a 2 for 1 voucher for Alton Towers.

  88. connor mceachran says:

    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.

  89. 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!

    Brendan

    • There are plenty of 2 for 1 vouchers for Alton Towers available at the moment, so a good time to go! Alton Towers opens on Saturday 26 March 2011 for the main season. As the opening times change depending upon the day you visit, it’s worth checking on the Alton Towers website for specific opening times. Enjoy your day at Alton Towers!
