What Is Alton Towers?
Alton Towers is a British holiday resort and amusement park located within the historic country grounds of Alton, Staffordshire, around the ruins of the original Alton Tower stately home. It spans across 800 acres of land and houses two hotels, a water park and a theme park, as well as a monorail and cable car transportation network. It is engulfed by large masses of forestry which provides the beautiful backdrop for the resort and its features.
The Alton Towers theme park is famous for its rides and attractions, which includes eight thrill-seeking roller coasters and five water rides. As well as these the park offers a countless number of other attractions, walkthroughs, restaurants, games and fast food outlets. Its most popular rides over the years include Nemesis, Air, Oblivion, Rita, and its most recent addition The Smiler, which is the world’s first 14-looping roller coaster.
Alton Towers accommodates visitors of all ages, providing dedicated areas for children such as CBeebies Land, Cloud Cuckoo Land and Adventure Land.
As well as its theme park, Alton Towers Resort has managed to find considerable popularity with its family-oriented hotels containing themed and interactive rooms, and its Cariba Creek water park. There are currently plans to extend the Alton Towers Spa and possibly build a new resort entrance closer to the hotels. The resort’s new accommodation, the Enchanted Village, is expected to open in 2015.
History of Alton Towers
Alton Towers Resort originally started out as a site for flower shows and garden tours, until its parent company Merlin Entertainments built the theme park in 1980. The park draws its name from the tower ruins around which it is built, the estate being a former seat of the Earls of Shrewsbury. The towers were the original stately home of the Talbot family until 1924 and are now open to the public during most of the year.
Visitors can walk around areas of the Towers such as the chapel, the banqueting hall, Her Ladyship’s Gardens and the conservatories. They can also visit the walk-through based ride known as Hex – the Legend of the Towers, which takes its theme from Staffordshire’s true legend about the 15th Earle of Shrewsbury who was cursed by a beggar woman and forced to suffer death every time a branch fell from an oak tree. The finale to the ride is located away from the Towers themselves but made to look like a secret vault where an oak tree lies in chains.
Alton Towers provides disabled access to all of its rides; a fully equipped Medical Centre; designated cash points and smoking areas; baby change areas with a pushchair hiring service and baby supply stock, and free wi-fi all around the park. There is also cheap car parking available, including Express car parking for faster entry.
Alton Towers offers handy tips and advice on how to make the most out of your visit, as well as clear, coloured maps so guests can find their way around. Parents with children can ask Guest Services about the Parent Queue Share passes, which ensures they ride together, and Free ID wristbands for the kids to help prevent them from getting lost.
For those that can’t wait to get on their favourite rides, Fastrack tickets allow you to skip the queues on specified attractions and Single Rider queues (for those who don’t mind riding alone) will also help you get to the front of the line quicker.
Food and Drink
The theme park has a choice of dozens of different eateries and food outlets in every section of the park, both for sit-down meals and al-fresco dining. For families or big groups, All Day Dining passes allow you to eat wherever and whenever you like all day for a fixed fee, and there are also lots of Food and Drink vouchers on hand from the Alton Towers website to help you save money.
Perks & Extras
Riders can purchase photographs of themselves enjoying the most thrilling rides, which come in a special themed frame or printed on any of the merchandise available. They can also upgrade their visit with a Fastrack pass; an Annual pass or one of Alton Towers’ VIP experiences, which include dining, express car parking and queue-cutting.
