If you walk down to the bottom of the garden in the Alton Towers hotel, you will be greeted by a pathway named ‘The Woodland Walk’. This is a path exclusively for Hotel guests and leads directly to Forbidden Valley. It takes approximately 10 minutes to walk along the path.
If you want to make the most out of your Early Rider Time then make your way down to the foyer in the Alton Towers Hotel at 8:45am, you will then be guided down the Woodland Walk. If you are a bit late you are free to enter the park via the walkway until 1pm. Woodland Walk is the quickest way to and from the park while staying in the hotel.
