About Alton Towers

Alton Towers Resort is home to the popular theme park that opened in 1980, located in the county of Staffordshire, UK. As well as a theme and amusement park, the resort also has its own water park and two hotels.

It also contains a wide range of water-based rides such as its Congo River Rapids and The Flume; children’s rides such as Marauder’s Mayhem and Get Set Go TreeTop Adventure, and walkthrough attractions like Hex – The Legend of the Towers and Haunted Hollow.

The Alton Towers waterpark was opened in 2003 and goes by the name of Cariba Creek. It is part indoor, part outdoor park themed as a tropical lagoon. It has a variety of slides, pools and interactive features like water cannons and geysers for both children and adults.

It is decorated in a traditional English style, with several interactive themed rooms, some based on familiar TV or storybook characters. The Alton Towers Splash Landings hotel was opened in 2003 and joins on to the Cariba Creek waterpark, with a decor style in-keeping with the theme of the waterpark.

The Alton Towers theme park was purchased by the Tussauds Group in 1990 – the second largest leisure group in the world after Disney. Tussauds was later acquired by investment group Dubai International Capital in 2005, before then being bought by Merlin Entertainments in March 2007. Alton Towers continues to be part of Merlin Entertainments today as part of a 35-year lease to the firm from its current owner Nick Leslau.
