Alton Towers, Alton
(3.6/5 based on 9,500+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Alton attractions like Alton Towers can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • We were at the park from 10.30am until 9pm and only managed to get on 3 rides! We queued for over 2 hours for Thirteen and gave up in the end as it had problems and they were trying to fix it for the ...  more »

  • This not a place to go a relax with your family, it is compact to say the least and can seem claustrophobic. From the start we struggled to find a focal point for our party to meet up because of the l...  more »

  • My childhood memories are now being relived through my children. If you have never been do go and make some great memories. Best time is when it's quieter before peak season. That way you can go on all the rides and no ques. Teacher training days are the best days when you make an instant decision to go. Ghost train is my particular fav. Kids went on it 7 times.
  • Amazing park, all rides operational at least once during the day, which was really nice. Staff all so friendly and helpful. The rides are great, although the lack of a log flume was a little disappointing. They also need much better control over the wasp and hornet (yes, I saw hornets) in the park. There's too few wasp catchers, and even the restaurants are having issues with wasps.
  • Had a great time here.. lodges were really nice. Was a little worried about walking distance as on crutches, but plenty of support was received from their team. The security and ambulance staff were amazing!
  • Very enjoyable day out. Expect things to be expensive and you won't be disappointed. All you can eat pizza buffet was surprisingly good though and good value. Gets busy so head there early.
  • Fabulous theme park, the greatest and the best I have ever seen so far. Whether you are adult, child or old this place has the potential to attract all different ages. Great scenes,lots of plays ,games and attractions for all. As a 28 year old, I got on most of the plays except for 2, galactic and can't remember the other one still proud of myself. I loved the fact that you could get a cheap ticket like 100 pound for 2 persons and play all bloody games for 2 days. That is so cheap, I tell you that place worth is more than this. Loved the experience and will bring my kids and wife when I get married someday!!!
