Thursday: Alton towers

Took my daughter and boyfriend to Alton Towers for her 18th last week.  There was a power cut, so none of the rides were on and she couldn’t even buy food because all the tills had also needed power.  She tied to phone us to pick her up, but we had gone to the nearby Dales and had no reception, so she was trapped.  She says there was a near riot, and many people left early.  So when the power finally came on in the afternoon, she managed to go on most of the rides she wanted with minimal queues.  And she had already given in her details to claim a compensatory free entry in summer.  So it worked out to the good in the end.
