For me I can handle some level of queueing but some of the queues do get a bit too much for me to cope with its not a blanket I need to use RAP all of the time thing.I never needed fastrack or VIP, even on the busiest day's, get in the park early and don't follow the crowds. Almost everyone heads for The Smiler first thing.
And don't get me started on RAP. These are there for ride access not to be used a as free fast track. On my last visit, I manage to get on the rear seats of Thirteen, then I was told to swap with a family using the front seats. Just because the family at the front were RAP and the rules are that they have to ride in the rear seats for evacuation purposes, and they decided to queue in the normal queue to get front row seats. Surly if you are RAP and can use the normal queue, then you don't need a RAP pass? This is not a dig at disable people or those with a hidden disabilities (bearing in mind my wife is disable). All I'm saying is, you can't justify obtaining a RAP because your disability stops you for using the normal queue line on one hand, but then on the other hand you go and use the normal queues when it suites you.
Back to the VIP pass, all that I can say, I'm a regular visitor to Alton and in all the years that I visited the Towers, I can't justify paying the hefty price tag for the VIP passes, I myself can't really remember the last time I queued for more than 30 mins in the last few years and on average I usually queue for no longer than 10 mins.
