Update: Alton Towers’ response to maintenance inquiries.
Some disappointing general maintenance issues at the Resort, considering we are heading into Summer.We spoke to Alton Towers regarding the Skyride, as well as the facade and sign issues in Cloud Cuckoo Land. Alton Towers Corporate Communications Manager Liz Greenwood said:
‘I can confirm that we have a planned maintenance schedule that runs throughout the year and this includes both technical and estates maintenance. It is therefore necessary from time to time to close rides or attractions to complete specific tasks, which was the case with the Skyride, and we will always try and communicate this in advance if we can. With regards general maintenance, this is also on-going and I am sure that the areas that you mention below will be addressed in due course’.
All in all though, Alton Towers is a great Park, and well worth a visit for its groundbreaking coasters and beauty. Have you been to Alton Towers recently? What did you think? Let us know in the comments. And don’t forget to check us out on Facebook and Twitter too!
