    Three ways to get Early access from 9am-10am to selected rides and attractions:

    • Buy an Annual Pass - both Merlin Annual Pass holders and Alton Towers Annual Pass holders get Early Ride Time.
    • Book your Theme Park tickets online at www.altontowers.com - not only save money the further in advance you book, but also get this early access!
    • Book your Theme Park tickets as part of your Resort Hotel Stay.

    If you are entitled to Early Ride Time, simply enter the Theme Park in the usual entrance but head straight for one of the exclusive areas with your entry ticket, show your ticket to the team member and they'll let you through!
