England's largest theme park, Alton Towers rarely disappoints visitors of any age. If you want your adrenaline to flow, hop on the Smiler, the world's first 14-loop roller coaster. Let go of gravity and fly under footpaths and past trees and rocks on Air. Get wet on Congo River rapids and ride the runaway mine train. Let the special effects of the 4-D cinema dazzle you, and view over 300 species of fish, including sharks and rays, at Sharkbait Reef. Bring your bathing suit if you plan to visit the waterpark here. There are cartoon-themed attractions for little ones, and you can book a room at one of the on-site hotels if you wish to spend the night.

  • We have had a fantastic time at Scarefest. The mazes were absolutely brilliant especially the Altonville Mine Tours. We would certainly recommend visiting. 
  • Had a leadership conference here last year and the staff were great. Really helpful right from discussing requirements through to full support on the day. Conference Rooms were good quality, bright and spacious and the staff were very attentive. Lunch was delicious with a wide range of choices. We spent the afternoon in the park with was great fun. Would host another conference here in future.
  • Whats not to love! Britain's best theme park, the rides are the best for thrill seekers. Oblivion, Rita, Nemsis, Galactica all deserve a visit. Staff are friendly and make your day run smoothly and fun, some good investment in the park, the gardens are well maintained the monorails and cable cars are a great way to get around the park.
  • Love alton towers, been here many times. You can go for a day or a weekend. If you stay for the weekend you can stay at the alton towers owned hotels, they're great but a bit expensive. Staying at the hotels will gain you access to the park a little earlier. The rides are all fantastic, shame that some of them are shut for the 2016 season.
  • When the kids are at school you cant beat it. Max wait was 15 minutes for air (weird because its the worst one). 5 minutes for oblivion, nemesis and the smiler. My only complaint is the nemesis is too short, twice as long and it would be up with the best. Smiler is cool but will send you dizzy very quick so no food or alcohol lol
  • Due a major refurb, especially all the toilets, they're disgusting, and a disabled toilet has a logo of a person in a wheelchair dressed as the devil.. Slightly inappropriate? There was a crowd stood round it in shock. The burger I had was disgusting, mostly grisly fat, sure they user to have burger king which was at the least edible. It's feels stuck in a time loop, even the staff seem like they're living an enslaved nightmare. Only good thing is the few minutes spent on the rides, and the doughnuts of course. And the new ride, galactica, is seriously lame, worst introduction to vr ever, it was just a nonsensical mess, I had no idea what I was looking at. I would have preferred to see where I was really going.
