Had got the passes by 10:00am so we headed down Towers Street which looked great with all the bunting and huge birthday cake as did the entrance area.
Arrived at Dark Forest 10:10am and joined Thirteen Queue thought the queue was huge as it backed up to the games units luckily discovered the entrance hadn't opened yet as the ride was still being tested. The entrance opened at 10:30am and we boarded at 11:10am.
Mates were impressed with Thirteen after brought a pic.
The affects were working in the station and making guests jump lol smile.gif .
We were going to ride Rita next but the queue looked big so we decided we would return later.

Boarded RMT at 1:50pm after 5min queue! Great atmosphere as always here with choo choo and singing happy birthday to various guests on most trains. Well done RMT Team again smile.gif . Grabbed a pic and headed to Duel and boarded 2:10pm can't tell you the scores as I didn't get this pic but I didn't do too bad this time.
Headed up to FV and joined Nemesis queue at 2:20pm it was great being able to go up top of the valley not been this way for a while! Boarded Nemesis 2:40pm after zooming around the valley mates rode Ripsaw which was walk on and got drenched!
After we headed over to Air and boarded 3:25pm after a 25min queue had a laugh at the pics and left FV at 3:40pm and went on Duel again at 3:50pm.

We entered Flume queue at 4:10pm and boarded at 4:25pm it was a great ride and we got drenched forchanly sun was now shining! Wandered back to Dark Forest past Battle Galleons. Joined Rita Queue and boarded 5:00pm after speeding around DF we headed back over to Towers Street at 5:10pm and Grabbed some sweet buckets from Towers Trading and left the park at 5:30pm and wandered back to the car park and went home at 5:50pm.

Overall:
Really brillant day smile.gif got alot of rides in and queues weren't to bad and have got new annual pass.
Roll on next visit.

Intresting observations:
Cabling from birthday concert still on grass near Towers Street is this being left for Pink Concert?
Alton Towers please add more LEDs to some parts of Duel or are they broken?
Some ride photos have 30 years logo on them. smile.gif
