Avoid the hustle and bustle of the Monorail and venture into the theme park through the surrounding forest via the Woodland Walk, with its entrance located at the bottom of the Alton Towers Hotel gardens.
The Woodland Walk is exclusively for Hotel guests and leads directly to Forbidden Valley. It takes approximately 10 minutes to walk along the path.
If you want to make the most out of your Early Ride Time then you can enter the Woodland Walk from about 8:45am until 1pm. The Woodland Walk is arguably the quickest way to and from the park if you are a hotel guest.
