Fright Nights finishes on 31st October and the season ends on 2nd November, does it? Nope! Saturday 5th November is 'services day' with the park open 10AM to 10PM with full ride and Fright Night maze line up, free parking, limited tickets so minimal queues and no fastrack, and tickets only £18.50! 

 

This is for emergency service (including NHS staff) and armed forces personnel only run through 'blue light card' and 'defence discount service', but they can take their families so if you know anyone in these professions it may be worth being friendly to them around about now!

All Towers had shut were The Smiler (it hadn't reopened after the incident at that point) and Air/Galactica (was still in transition and yet to open from its referb), along with the closed for 2016 selection that haven't opened since. I think Spinball had some issues on the day too. 

 

Everything is supposed to be open, but things can go down of course. Who knows if we'll see the return of DBGT by then?!

I thought those dates were the ultimate firework thing?

 

Think you're thinking of Towers, Thorpe don't do fireworks anymore.

...so, ask your Mum!

 

It's in the first post - it's run by 'blue light card' which she'll be eligible to join if she's care giving NHS staff.

I went to the Alton Towers one in March (or so) this year ... it was hugely disappointing. Very understaffed, majority of the food stalls closed. Although that could have been the "reopening" issues. 

 

Love to go but sadly my ambulance driving friend is working! :(

There will be an 8pm firework display for the John Lewis Partnership event on 4 November.

I meant a public fireworks display, and Ian meant the display at Alton Towers.

When's the John Lewis event at Thorpe?

 

I'm not sure if I am allowed to post the specific date due to social media rules in my contract, as you can appreciate I do not want to get the sack! 

 

If you scroll up, another member may have mentioned a date :good:
