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.

As a family with a 3 year old there is much better places to go to than here. It was wet the day we were there and we had cbeebiea done within 2 hours in the morning. This is the big thrill ride place... more »

Came here the end of September, they had already started setting up for Halloween. Was lovely to see all the park decorated. Mostly spent the day in CBeebies land as that’s where my son enjoys the rid... more »
The monorail to and from the car park was not working at both ends of the day and a very long walk was needed. If they are going to charge car parking they should ensure a working solution is in place for getting to and from the car parks. I would have scored less but felt the rest of the day made up the score other than the 2 hour queues!
I had a really fun day out there for my birthday but I would recommend getting there early as the queues are super long. You will only get a few rides fitted into the day so go on your favourites first. You can advance some of the queues by buying fast passes but they are super expensive and can be up to £100 extra per person! The food is good and easy to get. My favourite ride was nemesis so I recommend it.
Simply one of the best theme parks in the UK. Exciting and frequently innovative roller coasters set in beautiful gardens and grounds. I am a season pass holder and it never disappoints. Recommend starting early in the day, going in school term time and away from bank holidays for best experience. Also recommended to buy tickets in advance of visit as ticket queues are frequently long during busy times.
I've been coming here every year since I was a kid and every year it never fails to disappoint. The price is good for what you get and the staff are lovely, the rides are absolutely fantastic and the whole atmosphere is a joy. My one tip would be to avoid the restaurants as they're fairly pricey - the fast food is the best option.
I've been once on a school trip and I've got to say i could have had a better time. i have a friend with the Merlin pass who frequently goes to the park and he told me he has never seen it busier than in the school trip season. but that wont take away from the 5 star review because its a great park with something for everyone and although when i went the que times where way over an hour for most of the big rides they're not always as long as most people think for a mainstream theme park.
