    I would argue that those people deserve to loose their money...

    This sounds like Merlins' left hand and right hand both knowing what the Coronavirus is doing and what the Government response will be. Trouble is the left and right hands are not both attached in Poole.

    One things guaranteed, if it is announced that theme parks are reopening tomorrow then the forum's going to get an influx of new members and posts awaiting the new season

    Or the left hand is in Windsor and the right hand is in Chessington, left foot in Staines and right foot in Alton. The parks have a reasonable amount of autonomy and this does seem to be evidenced at the moment quite clearly.

    Even look at the queue time board and the fact Chessington have ordered LED screens twice as big as Alton has.

    Theme Parks have just been given government approval to reopen on 4th July.

    Waterparks must remain closed.

    Unable to accept payments for any given date, despite numerous payment options and dates. Oh dear.

    My dad was having the exact same problem when trying to book us a reservation; I wonder what the issue is?

    I would bet it's just the system swamped by people trying to book tickets...

    Just booked a ticket for the 4th, paid via Paypal and printed the ticket off. Went quite smoothly on desktop PC. Maybe they've sorted the issue now.

    They've taken my money for the Saturday but no email confirmation. Typical. :tearsofjoy:

    One thing that's not clear for me is if you are staying on Resort, do you still need to prebook a ticket or are they allowing hotel guests in their daily quotas?

    Although on my passholder prebook E-ticket it does say proceed to turnstiles and scan this barcode, but there is no barcode.

    Anyone else done a passholder ticket?

    I also had that last week for my Warwick & Chessington tickets but oddly the Towers ticket last week showed a barcode but these new ones don’t.

    It wasn’t an issue last week though they just check the date and then scanned passes instead.

    I booked Chessington tickets and they did not have a barcode. The Alton Towers tickets I just bought do have a barcode though.
    I should've checked the FAQs :oops: It now says that Annual Pass / Season TIcket holders who are staying on the resort hotels do not need to prebook.

    Its been that way for the fireworks pre-book for a while, they basically assume everyone in the hotels will enter the parks.

    Working now; we booked MAP reservations for 12th July!

    Interestingly, 4th and 5th had already been blacked out by the time I went on there; demand is high, it would seem!
