Timings Expand 9:15 – 10am – Collect your packs from AUK Volunteers (wearing yellow high vis vests) and join a group if you wish. (NB: Arriving AFTER 10am will not have the same ‘buzz’ as arriving before 10am as the groups will have gone through). See here for more information on ticket collection: https://www.alopecia.org.uk/faqs/arrival-information-and-ticket-collection 10am - Organised groups go through to the park with their volunteer. See more about organised groups here: - https://www.alopecia.org.uk/faqs/groups 1:30pm – 2:25pm - Lunchtime meet up. Will take place in the Hospitality Suite which is next to Spinball Whizzer (and will be circled on your AUK map). See more about the lunchtime meet up here: https://www.alopecia.org.uk/faqs/lunchtime-meet-up 2:30pm - Big group photo near the Hospitality Suite. We'll all walk out together, please stand between the markers. We like to try and show how the group grows each year so it's great if people can get along for this! 2:45pm - We’ll send groups off round the park again. 4:55pm - Final Group Photo Opportunity. The park ride queues shut at 5pm. We aim to get the last rides of the day on Runaway Mine Train and fill the train with people wearing blue tops (at our last Alton Towers event we filled it six times over as there were so many of us!). 5pm – Ride queues close. UPDATE: 25/03/2022 - Alton Towers have now extended the park opening hours. The park ride queues will now close at 6 pm.
