Alton Towers reverses later ride openings

Alton Towers has reversed the previously-announced decision to open some of its rides an hour later in the morning.

Air and Thirteen were among a selection of rides which were to be opened at the later time of 11am each day.

Water rides The Flume and Congo River Rapids will remain on 11am openings, as was typical prior to the announcement last week.

The u-turn represents the latest reversal of a number of cost-saving measures which have received a negative reaction from guests.
