Crowd notes

Tuesday and Friday are often the best days to go for shorter queues, while Saturday and Sunday tend to be the busiest. The most popular months are typically August, February and July, while December, March and May are normally quieter. To get the most out of your day we recommend arriving early and leaving late. Make sure to check the live queue times on our site throughout the day to stay ahead of the crowds.

Extremely disappointed got here at 10am waited till 12 for the rain to back off a further 2 hour que for wicker man which wasn't worth the wait while we were wet and a bit annoyed, as the customerservice told us it wasn't a rainy day event, then an hour and half for Rita to be told right at the end the coster had been shut. At 4pm we left 1 ride on our belt and sad faces the way back home unless we get a free return we will never come back.

Was 19/8/2021 an error?! max 100mins for spinball and... OBLIVION?! Also on the oblivion detailed stats it went from around 100mins to 30 in the space of 10mins. Sounds to me like Alton's reported times are wrong or inaccurate. Can someone confirm this? Also, another reason for me to believe the times are wrong is that I have been on a day with a higher crowd level and yet the times were not as bad as this. As stated before, please may someone confirm if this is true or not, as, I am going next Thursday. Thanks in advance.

Yeah times are relatively accurate thirteen got to two hours wait time. When they announced wait times in the queues like half of people left which helped reduce times.

Avoid on the 6 weeks holiday unless obviously with kids. I managed to get on 4 rides was there just after 11. And that's because of traffic to get into the park. The queue times are ridiculous. Honestly don't waste your money wait until September when kids are back at school. Book a days annual leave it will be worth it . Enjoyed the rides we managed to get on but queue times are ridiculous

Yes they do allow you to skip the queue, but not everyone can afford them.
