Vegan Alton Towers

Last weekend I went on a daytrip with Chris and his family to Alton Towers. His dad drove and we had an amazing time, although we were all shattered by the end of the day! I brought my own food- italiano and steak pasties from holland and barrett, hula hoops, bean pate and faux beef sandwiches, raisins and nakd bars, and the only food I ate in the park was chips, but I did notice a fair few vegan options, as listed here:

More important than food- the rides! I am becoming a coaster junkie and went on nearly everything, including Air (you can fly!), Nemesis, Rita (0-60 in 2.5 seconds), Thirteen (world's first vertical drop coaster) and some of the more family friendly stuff like Runaway mine train, hex and rapids (twice).

I'm off to Dublin on Tuesday, going to see ma coloc extraordinnaire from France, excited!!
