It is a nightmare to manoeuvre around, but the 2015 Alton Towers theme park opening times have been released and would you believe it? There's some improvement on 2014! There are considerably less 5pm closes next season. The only weekend dates which are 5pm next season are the opening weekend (which is usual, as it's normally quiet) of Saturday 21st/Sunday 22nd March. ALL other Saturdays with exception to one are 6pm and all other Sunday's are at least 5.30pm, with the vast majority through May/June/July/August/September being 6pm. I know we all want Alton Towers to open even later, but I think this is a positive step from 2014! Hurrah!
