Attach Documentation

We will accept the following documentation as proof of eligibility:

1. Disability Living Allowance or Attendance Allowance award letter (dated within the last 2 years*) showing that you receive the higher rate mobility component.

2. Personal Independence Payment letter (dated within the last 2 years*) showing that you receive enhanced mobility component.

3. A current and valid Blue Badge.

If you believe you are unable to stand in a queue line for any other reason, we are happy to arrange a Ride Access Pass upon presentation of a letter from your GP or Consultant on header paper (dated within the last 2 years*) which clearly states that you are unable to queue and why (we do not need a letter of diagnosis).

This, or any of the documentation above, must be presented alongside valid photographic ID for the named recipient.

*The documentation must very clearly be dated within 2 years to be accepted.


Please note: If the Ride Pass application is for a child that does not have photo ID, please provide documentation stating their full name and date of birth.

Have a short break booked before 25th April? We can move your stay date with no extra cost!

Further to recent updates from the Government on the response to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the very difficult decision to close Alton Towers Resort as a precautionary measure.

For guests with short breaks arriving up to and including 25th April 2020, we have relaxed our usual terms and conditions so you can now reschedule your break to another date in the 2020 season with no additional cost*

Please visit the Manage My Booking site and complete the booking amendment form, including your booking reference and the preferred date you would like to rearrange your booking to. Our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

We look forward to welcoming you to Alton Towers Resort soon. Thank you for your patience.

*Subject to availability, please provide 3 alternative dates in order of preference, dates allocated on a first come first served basis. Please note – if you have booked a partner Hotel (a Hotel off site), most will honour the price you booked at, however there are a small number which cannot, we will let you know based on the dates you choose.
