I pre-booked this back in August before all the craziness started with the plan of having another trip to my second home.
When we went to level 3 I was really anxious about going, after all it said avoid unnecessary travel; however I’d paid for my add-ons and was set to lose money, so I thought with the right amount of caution, and a good social distancing and masking regime it would be satisfactory.
Alton Towers is really beautiful in the Autumn, and it certainly is one of my favourite times of year.
Sadly Nemesis is closed for long term repairs and Th13teen didn’t open at all, and we did have a temporary closure on Galactica at one point; but I managed Smiler twice, Rita twice, Galactica twice, Wicker Man twice, Oblivion & Spinball once each, Enterprise, and The Blade once each.
It wasn’t massively busy, and rain at about noon certainly cleared the lightweights out.
