I'll be going to England in April and plan to hit BPB and Alton. Does anyone know if Alton Towers or BPB would be open on Easter Sunday? Thanks

They'll both be open all weekend. And packed to the rafters. Have fun

I've been to both at Easter before and would NEVER go to Alton Towers again on a holiday, I got about 4 rides all day.
Blackpool, although busy, will not have as long lines, except Pepsi Max, Valhalla, and Space Invader (crap capacity). Plus the park will close about 10-11pm, whereas Alton will close at 6.30-7pm. After about 6pm at BPB, people start to leave, and the lines are short.

Seriously Alton Towers will be packed expect a three hour queue on air, and two hours for Nemesis and Oblivion.
The park seriously does have a lack of rides for the amount of people it attracts.
You should be fine at the Pleasure Beach though just make sure you do the Grand National and Wild Mouse, fantastic rides!

Thanks for the info guys. I'm sure I'll still have a great time.
