Is Alton Towers open on Saturday ?

Hi

I was wondering if Alton Towers will be opening on Saturday as a lot of
the UK will come to a standstill because of the funeral of Diana Princess
of Wales.  Anyone know ?

I rang them this morning (0990 204060) and they said the
park would open at 9:30 as usual, but the rides wouldn't
open until 1pm "out of respect". Personally I think this
is very silly and there will be some annoyed punters come
Saturday morning.

Not sure about Alton Towers, but Blackpool Pleasure Beach will NOT be
opening at 10am as usual this Saturday.  Instead they will open at 1am as a
mark of respect for the late Princess Diana.

I also believe that Thorpe Park and Legoland Windsor will be opening
limited hours.
