    Alton Towers

    What's the plan then? Who's going, and is anyone buying tickets in advance? If I remember correctly I think Louise mentioned something about using tesco clubcard points to pay for the tickets...

    Unfortunately I don't think we'd be able to use that site.. Escouts isn't an official group/organisation!

    Tickets on the alton towers website are £29, but if you add the fasttrack (lets you jump to the front of the queues on 3 major rides like we did last time) then it's £37.

    I love taking my kids to Alton Towers, but there's no way I'd want to take 28 Cubs there.

    I have a free entry voucher from Tesco's that gives free entry provided someone is buying an adult ticket, but it cannot be used for pre-bookings.

    I probably won't be going to Alton Towers, so someone else is welcome to it.
