Buy the £20 digital photo and you can then download every single photo from your day - we got loads
Go on the rapids first as there's no queue because people leave it until last in case they get soaked
They do a photo offer when you first come in. Think it’s better value to buy like 4 than a one off and they just give you tear off coupons that are hassle free.
Set across 900 acres of land (there’s a pub quiz fact for you) with several hotels and restaurants, Alton Towers Resort is way more than a theme park. In fact, many visitors turn their trip into a mini-break. More time to experience everything sounds pretty good to us.
CBeebies land is guaranteed fun for little ones, with over 14 rides, attractions and live shows to enjoy. Meet some of your favourite CBeebies friends including the Teletubbies, Peter Rabbit ™ and Postman Pat. Get ready for even more fun this year as CBeebies Land welcomes welcomes Hey Duggee’s Big Adventure Badge, Andy’s Adventures Dinosaur Dig and JoJo & Gran Gran At Home.
For the big kids (that includes adults), the park’s world-class rollercoasters will get your heart pounding, like Wicker Man – the UK’s latest wooden coaster experience – or Nemesis, which has G-forces greater than a space shuttle. There’s Oblivion with its iconic vertical drop, The Smiler (and all 14 of its loops) and Rita which goes from 0-100 real quick. No, really - 100kph in just 2.5 seconds.
The Alton Towers Waterpark has something for everyone too. Dodge the canons then hit the slides, water coasters and flumes. If you’re lucky with the weather, head outside to float beneath the sun –pure bliss. Just a heads up – you’ll need to get tickets at the official website.
Make sure to leave time for a trip to the Alton Towers Dungeon where you’ll journey through Staffordshire’s darkest history, and Sharkbait Reef by SEA LIFE, which is home to rays, sharks and other underwater residents.
There’s so much to do, you’ll definitely need a full day at least – or book one of the resort’s short breaks If you fancy staying the night.
There are a range of passes available and booking 24 hours or more in advance saves you a fair few quid. Under 3s go free.
The main park is open from March to November, plus seasonal days out in November and December and half term fun in February. No surprises here – school holidays and weekends are the busiest.
The attractions open at 10am each day, but closing times vary depending on the season so it’s best to check on the app.
Stay fed and watered in the park’s restaurants or pack a picnic, there are plenty of benches dotted around.
