2008 tariff is published

Park News
Wednesday, 23rd January 2008 By Dan Ketteringham

The 2008 entry prices have appeared on Alton Towers' official website.

The cost of a standard adult ticket on non-event days will be £34, a £2 increase on last year (compared to a £2.50 rise in 2007). Child tickets have also gone up by £2 to £24 (compared to a £3 increase last year).

Seniors and disabled guests will now pay £17 as opposed to £16, while both family tickets have risen by £1 to £90 and £100 respectively.

The 2008 "event" tariff, introduced last year, has yet to be revealed, though it can be expected to be around £1 or £2 more per ticket than the non-event rate.

The internet prices of all these tickets remain significantly cheaper than the gate prices.

The cost per person for group bookings (10 or more guests) has remained the same, although it seems the 5 to 9 guest rate has been scrapped.

Meanwhile, Merlin launched their new Annual Pass on Monday, which now incorporates several Merlin brands including Legoland Windsor, Sea Life and The Dungeons. The price has gone up, as you'd expect - but not at a disproportionate rate. The pass will cost £110, which is still very good value for money.

To see the 2008 tariff in full, take a look at our Ticket Price Guide.
