One thing which struck me on the weekend was how the existing hotels cannot cope with the visitor numbers, and the hotels, for August, were not even full. Splash Landings for example, there was no empty seat in the bar in the evening, it was roasting hot from the amount of people up there, yet the mini disco then for the kids ended relatively early as did the singer. Alton Towers hotel wasnt overly busy but I think thats mainly due to the poor entertainment offering, with the two girls singing and messing about.... which seemed well scripted as they did the same the night before. Even wore exactly the same outfits, then closed the show at 10.30 with not even a goodbye. They just stopped singing and walked off the stage! The Spa - quick enquiry at the desk revealed it was full. Waterpark - absolutely rammed. 45 min queues for the slides. Could hardly move in the lazy river. Restaurants - Crooked spoon was rammed. Tried to get tables in the other restaurants for the night after but couldnt until late. So... add another hotel to this lot, and then when the park is back to normal..... it could be pretty chaotic!
