Alton Towers Resort have today launched a new Premium Season Pass, ahead of the 2019 theme park season which is due to commence on 23rd March.

Costing £70, the new Premium Season Pass will offer entry to the theme park plus one entry to The Alton Towers Dungeon per visit (subject to The Alton Towers Dungeon not being at capacity), and will be valid from the date of purchase through to 3rd November, including during the entirety of the summer holidays and Scarefest, however Fireworks will still carry an extra charge.


Also available, following its debut last year, is the Standard Season Pass. Costing £56, the Standard Season Pass is expected to be priced at the same rate as a standard, on the gate entry ticket, indicating that the 2019 season will see the adult gate price increase by £1. As in 2018, the Standard Season Pass carries a number of exclusion dates, including every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in August, 1st September, Scarefest, and Fireworks. It also doesn’t include entry to The Alton Towers Dungeon.

The introduction of the Premium Season Pass follows on from the introduction of the Standard Season Pass last year, which marked a move from the previously offered Alton Towers Annual Pass. With the Season Pass priced at the same rate as an on the gate day ticket, its introduction also saw the withdrawal of both the ‘Next Day Bounce Back’, and ‘Any Day Bounce Back’ tickets, to the dismay of many guests. Initial reaction to the premium Season Pass has been positive, with some pleased to see a much less restrictive season pass on offer.
