Dubbed ‘Britain’s most loved theme park’, Alton Towers is home to hundreds of amazing live shows, wonderful costume characters and terrific rides. Beloved by family groups and thrillseekers alike, there are activities and events to suit all ages and tastes. Younger visitors will enjoy the brand new Octonauts Rollercoaster Adventure, while Postman Pat’s sorting room offers kids the chance to help Pat sort his parcels.
Fearless folks head for the big thrill rides – Nemesis, Oblivion, The Blade, Enterprise and Rita to name just a few. Alton Towers Water Park also has a fine mix of quiet places to unwind, such as Lazy River, the Bubbly Wubbly Pool and Lagoona Bay, plus adrenaline-filled options such as the Master Blaster Water Coaster – a fast and fabulous water slide to whiz swimmers around the Water Park before splashing them into a pool. Meanwhile kids will adore splashing around in the Wacky Waterworks Tree House and the Tipping Bucket.
Alton Towers also organises some fun themed events at certain times of the year – think Spookfest to mark Halloween, and the spectacular Fireworks event that celebrates Guy Fawkes Night.
