Published: August 19, 2008 at 6:33 AMI am from England and go to Alton Towers frequenty. I must admit, I have no idea how bus' get to the park. I live in the south and to get to the park you must drive through small villages and tiny roads that go up and down hills. There is one bit where it is sooo small and steep, a mini would find it hard.
There were plans to build a new road, I dont know if thats still going ahead. Really feel sorry for the people on the bus.
