I dont think you can get 'cheap' tickets. We go once a year but always have some 2 for 1 vouchers or similar offer to make it cheaper. I didnt go this year so sent all my vouchers to a couple of Mnetters, sorry
It would be a 2 day tickets I would need. I have priced them online and it seems cheaper to buy them from alton towers online as many of the 2 for 1 offers are only for one day which works out more expensive. Am I making sense?
blimey - just spotted the mumsnet discount link here (scroll down) - better than 2 for 1!
