Nearby Lodging
The co-joined Alton Towers Hotel and Splash Landing Hotel offer early entry and ERT on six attractions for one hour before the general public. Both hotels are well themed and provide free parking. There is also a CBeebies Land Hotel for young families or the options to stay at the Enchanted Village Treehouses or the Woodland Lodges for a different type of lodging experience
Virtual Queue Options
Information on the park's "Fastrack" system can be found at http://www.altontowers.com/plan-your-visit/fast-track/ There are multiple options. Depending on crowd size, single rider lines exist for Air, Nemesis, Rita: Queen of Speed, Spinball Whizzer, and Oblivion.
The park doesn't offer a lot in this area, but there is a children's musical show (Wonderful World of Cloud Cuckoo Land) and a lighthearted pirate-themed stunt show (The Pirate of Sharkbait Reef).
