About Alton Towers

Beloved by family groups and thrillseekers alike, there are activities and events to suit all ages and tastes at Alton Towers. 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.
