    Factor in there are other ticket types that will be included in the overall capacity such as 241 offers that can be booked online, people that had tickets for March-June that can rebook online for a new date and bring a friend £15 tickets for season pass holders.

    They’ve got to start low so they can adapt to the changes and modify them where necessary and then start increasing over time.

    I checked too late so missed opening day but the 6th has something like 700 day tickets, extremely low then it ramps up to a maximum of 4500 day/2000 pass.
    I checked out of curiosity and October is showing as 4500 day.

    No wonder the passholder pre book slots are running out quick

    I’m surprised it hasn’t been mentioned already, but Towers Trading reopened today! Here’s a video walkthrough from TPW showing some of the measures in place as well as some of the new for 2020 merchandise:

    How come pre book pass dates that were sold out keep becoming available again. That must mean they keep upping and upping the allocation, to which I want to know how they can do that when they haven't even opened the park yet to see how it will go

    Give me a date IL check, I don't think so however, my guess is more payment glitches being timed out or manually cancelled.

    It can't be people cancelling as most dates are available again now

    It's increased capacity on the pass holder prebook package
    It's now (for July)
    04-10: 1000
    11-12: 1450
    13-17: 1200
    18: 1800
    Then 2000 onwards.

    My guess is they haven't got around to increasing that package yet.

    I guess they are shifting the allocations around from day tickets to pass holder tickets to provide more availability to pass holders.

    That doesn't appear to be the case, day ticket capacity has also been increased.

    After checking the passholder prebook,day ticket, season pass bring a friend and student day ticket I have some rough overall numbers.

    04: 3600
    05: 3000
    06-10: 4000
    11: 5750
    (The student package is still configured for full 30k capacity for 13-17 so no useful info there)

    Now these numbers I need to double check.
    19-30: 11000
    31: 6500

    Edit: figured it out, it's a package not being offered for some dates that causes the drop at the end.

    Thats where the roughness comes into it, surely the hotels are reduced capacity as well

    Don’t know if it’s already been stated but Alton Towers teased a video of Blade testing on their Instagram story 20 minutes ago.

    Surprisingly it’s not fallen apart yet and looks to be reopening with the park
