Alton Towers Resort is to begin a ‘Timed Ticketing trial’ in CBeebies Land from this Monday (9th June).

Initially being offered as a free system on the In The Night Garden Magical Boat Ride, the new queue management system will offer guests the opportunity to book a timed slot for the attraction. To take advantage of this new virtual queuing system, guests will be required to collect a ticket from a ride host at the attraction entrance which will detail the time which they can return to experience the ride. This new system means guests are free to explore the rest of the resort whilst queuing virtually for what has proved to be one of the most popular attractions in CBeebies Land, regularly attracting queues of over one hour.

During the trial period, the timed tickets will be the only way to queue for the In The Night Garden Magical Boat Ride. With limited number of tickets per timeslot however, the resort aims to minimise the amount of time guests spend in the queue line, therefore allowing everyone more time to enjoy the rest of the resort. If successful, it is anticipated that this new system will be rolled out to other popular attractions throughout CBeebies Land.
