Park News
Monday, 27th March 2006 By Dan Ketteringham

The Alton Towers website has been updated with details on how you can apply for future tours.

The park previously held a trial tour on March 11th, which confirmed that the format could be successful. Any future tours are certain to cost more than the initial £30, at least the ones held during open season anyway, as park entrance is included.

Here are the full details released by the park:
