We will be facilitating our SEVENTH Alton Towers trip in 2020.  This event has become a firm favourite in the Alopecia UK calendar with increasing numbers of attendees each year (over 300 in 2019)! 

TICKETS ON SALE NOW

Please note - You can still purchase your own tickets from other sources (E.g Alton Towers directly). If doing so please remember to still register with us below so we can be aware of how many people will be attending.  



Rollercoasters and theme parks can typically be avoided by those with alopecia which is why we organise the annual trip to Alton Towers Theme Park.  The trip was born as an awareness event but has grown to be a very supportive event too.  A crucial part of the whole day is the fact that everyone who is part of the Alopecia UK trip wears the blue Alopecia UK t-shirts and/or hoodies on top of their clothing.  This creates a supportive and friendly atmosphere in the park and gives everyone a confidence boost, enabling those with alopecia to just relax and enjoy their day with family and friends.  

We do facilitate groups to go round the park together so they can meet others affected by alopecia as this is a huge part of the day.  However some people choose to go round the park in their own family/friendship groups, either for all or part of the day.  It is up to the individuals attending.  We just want everyone to enjoy their day and have fun! 

This ticket page is for those wishing to be a part of the Alopecia UK Trip to Alton Towers.  You can either buy tickets or if you already have tickets (e.g. if you are a Merlin pass holder) you can simply register so that you are included in the communications and have the opportunity to buy the discount rate t-shirts and hoodies.

Please note that while Alton Towers have confirmed they will be open on Saturday 18th April 2020, opening times are yet to be confirmed.  We anticipate that the park will open at 10am with our tickets allowing us early entry at 9:30am.  We expect ride queues to close at 5pm.

Before ordering your tickets:

As well as reading the terms and conditions, please note:

  • Each order must include someone who has alopecia as one of the attendees.

  • The need to BUY HOODIES/T-SHIRTS, LUNCH VOUCHERS & DIGIPASSES AT THE SAME TIME AS YOUR TICKETS if you want them at the discount rate. Wearing a blue Alopecia UK t-shirt and/or hoodie is an essential part of the day (see FAQ's). These will be posted out week commencing 6th April 2020 (subject to printers delivering on time).  Be aware that all hoodies and t-shirts sold for this event will be Sapphire Blue.  If you want any other colours please see our custom print shop and order at full price from there.

  • Theme park entry tickets will NOT be posted out.  You will need to collect them from Alopecia UK volunteers near the Alton Towers entrance on the morning on Saturday 18th April 2020 between 9am and 10:30am (Park opens at 10am although our tickets allow us early entry at 9:30am).

  • We have the option to pre-order a sandwich to save waiting in lunch queues.  You can order them in the same way as you would order merchandise (which is using the booking options below).  The lunch voucher can ONLY be used at lunchtime in the Hospitality Suite, which is the room we hire for the day. You will not be able to order a sandwich on the day but there will be a tuck shop with drinks and snacks. 

  • This year we also have the option to purchase discounted Digipasses. This is a wristband you wear in order to collect your ride photos. Take home a unique theme park souvenir from any of the following rides and attractions:

    Thrill Rides: Wicker Man, TH13TEEN, Galactica, Nemesis, Rita, Oblivion and The Smiler.

    Family Rides: Congo River Rapids, Duel, Runaway Mine Train and Spinball Whizzer. 

    CBeebies Land: Postman Pat Parcel Post, Octonauts Rollercoaster Adventure and CBeebies Land Photo Studio.

  • The age 3 - 17 years FREE tickets are ONLY FOR CHILDREN WITH ALOPECIA.  An adult ticket must be purchased at the same time as the free child with alopecia ticket.  Any other children WITHOUT ALOPECIA age 3-11 will need to have a £20 Child ticket. Any children WITHOUT ALOPECIA aged 12 and over will need a £25 Adult Ticket. 
  • If you have sourced your theme park tickets elsewhere and are using this form for Registration Only then when selecting this ticket type please select 'one' and let us know how many will be in your party when completing the questions.  It is helpful for us to know how many people are coming as part of the Alopecia UK event.  

  • Refund requests will be accepted up until the 19th March 2020 on either tickets or merchandise. No refunds will be given after 19th March.
  • Event Merchandise will only be on sale until Friday 13th March 2020.

  • Tickets sales will close Sunday 21st March 2020.

  • Please note only one discount ticket can be purchased per VIP Cardholder.
