Fun day out 🙂

Heres a good one! Decided to take my 16 year old boy to Alton Towers for the day about 6 weeks ago… nice bit of son Dad time… took advantage of the fact that you can use the disabled card to book my son in as my carer for the day for free… well why shouldnt I hear you say. When I got to the gate to present my e tickets to the what looked like a 10 year old with the hand held scanner I was asked to prove that I was disabled! As a joke I said to the young person in question what would you like me to do? A limp or perhaps dribble for you? Hahaha …. was met with complete silence so I just showed him my paperwork instead. Next time im rocking up in a wheelchair to save everyone from my embarrasing sence of humour…. my son didnt talk to me for an hour!

@desn a wheelchair is ideal for the venue. It is so big. Plus you get to front of the queue

Brilliant. There has to be some advantage at least.

Hi @desn, you might want to bung a note on the feedback/complaint section to tell them that if you are required to prove that you have a disabling condition, they should make it clear on the ticket. I mean, how would a blind person be expected to prove their blindness? Should a prosthetic limb wearer be required to roll up their trouser leg to prove they’re not lying?

I’m in a troublesome mood today! 🙂
