Alton Towers is offering its guests and visitors a sneak peek at its new Fairytale Lodges, which are expected to be open for use in 2015.
From now, visitors will be able to find a prototype lodge situated in the theme park, to catch a glimpse of what they can expect from the lodges next year. Each one will be able to sleep up to five persons, offering a king-sized bed, a bunk bed and a trunkle bed, and will include an outdoor decking area.
The Fairytale Lodges are part of the park’s latest series of innovations, which involve the creation of more accommodation space in which guests can stay. The lodges will provide a pleasant alternative to the existing Alton Towers hotels, which offer a selection of character-themed and interactive rooms in which families can play and explore; plus evening meal and breakfast included.
Alton Towers’ Head of Consumer Marketing Katherine Duckworth said:
The new Fairytale Lodges are a significant development for Alton Towers Resort and we are delighted to be able to give a sneak preview of how they are going to look.”
The lodges will be built in a new area of the park called the Enchanted Village, which will offer guests a quieter option if they wish to reside away from the usual hustle and bustle of the park. As well as 120 Fairytale Lodges, which are each designed to look like something from a fairytale, five luxury treehouses will also be built.
The treehouses are designed to fit larger parties of up to eight people and consist of four separate bedrooms, each of which will contain a plasma TV. They will also provide self-catering facilities, a lounge area with 50 inch TV and games console, luxury furnishings, a private hot tub, and each will have its own unique decor and style.
The Enchanted Village will be another area where families and children can enjoy a magical experience, with tales of little fable folk that work in secret to keep the lodges neat and tidy when their residents are not there.
Children can also climb, play and slide on the structures around the village, and the Crooked Spoon restaurant will offer guests a warm place where they can enjoy a tasty meal and catch glimpses of the little folk on camera.
Available from April 2015, a night’s stay in the Enchanted Village will also entitle guests to free car parking and easy access to the theme park and rest of the resort.
