eXclusive Ride Time gives you the chance to get on Nemesis & Air
before the park opens to everyone else...sounds good? read on to find
out how to use it...
|what is XRT?
XRT, or eXclusive Ride Time allows
you to ride Nemesis & Air for half an hour before the park opens
to other guests. XRT ticket holders will be let into the park just
before 9am, at this time they will be able to start riding Nemesis
& Air with relatively short queues before non-XRT guests are
let into the park at 9.30am.
Typically during XRT you'll find
Nemesis has no, or near-to no queue and you'll be able to get on
virtually straight away. Air, being the newer attraction, tends
to attract a slightly larger queue.
|how do i get XRT?
If you hold an annual
pass or are staying at either the Alton Towers Hotel or Splash
Landings Hotel then you are automatically entitled to XRT. Simply
enter through the turnstiles with your annual pass or if you're
stopping in the hotels, via the hotel's dedicated park entrance.
If you're not stopping in the hotels
and don't have an annual pass then don't worry, you can still get
XRT and at no extra cost. All you need to do is pre-book your tickets
(ensuring you get full price ones which include XRT, not discounted
ones with entry from 9.30am). You'll find information on how to
pre-book tickets elsewhere in the need2know section of towers almanac.
