This year some amazing new attractions join the Resort’s world class rides and attractions - dare you add a visit to the new Alton Towers Dungeon where you can laugh and scream as you journey through Staffordshire’s darkest history. And if that’s not scary enough, enjoy the UK’s latest wooden rollercoaster experience on Wicker Man, feel G-forces greater than a space shuttle on Nemesis, brave Oblivion’s iconic vertical drop, ride The Smiler’s 14 loops or satisfy your need for speed on Rita – hold on tight!
For those with little ones in tow, head over to CBeebies Land where the brand new ‘Peter RabbitTM Hippity Hop’ ride, featuring the mischievous bunny Peter Rabbit and his friends Benjamin and Lily, joins the much-loved characters and themed attractions for 2019. Families can also join Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po in a musical extravaganza, as they perform their new show, the ‘Teletubbies Big Band Live Show’!
Also new this year, enjoy the great outdoors with a stay in the new Stargazing Pods. The great value camping-style pods join the Resort’s four themed hotels, indoor waterpark, luxury spa and eighteen hole crazy-golf course – all situated just a stone’s throw away from the UK’s leading theme park!
