Trip Planner:   Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Staffordshire  /  Alton  /  Alton Towers
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.

  • Rides were fab, waiting times to be expected but also some queues were very quick. Most staff were super helpful, happy and a credit to Alton Towers. Better then any other similar places. Only issue is YOU NEED TONS MORE DISABLED CAR PARK SPACES! don't under estimate how many disabled people come! Thank you.
  • Amazing experience! Great for children and grown ups as well! Cbeebies Land has a variety of rides and shows that are enough to keep the little ones busy all day. With rides like Wicker Man, Rita and 13, there's more than enough to keep grown ups happy too! There's plenty of places to eat and grounds that picnics can be enjoyed in as well. All the staff are fantastic, so friendly and personable. Be prepared to queue, but it's worth it!
  • Great theme park. Rides cater to all ages and really is big. Sky ride is nice. Gets u places easily and lovely gardens. Don't bother with the games all seems rigged. Good place to take kids especially with CBeebies land. Should improve the ride access system. The passes just disintegrates in our hands as printed on low quality paper and replacements take ages.
  • It doesn't matter how old you are, this place is still good fun to go to. It gives me a chance to show the kids that dad is completely old. The rides are good fun. Even when it is busy, there is still plenty of space to walk around. The food is exactly what you expect. It annoys me paying for parking when there is no other way of getting there. The tickets are enough to pay. It also means that it can take ages to get out when leaving when all you want to do is get home.
  • Amazing, Had never been before and went just after they had launched "The Wicker Man". We went on a good day and got to ride All of the top rides apart from the crazy mine train. My partner had taken me for my birthday and just to add more of a treat she took me to the roller coaster restaurant. Was just awesome. Food was lovely, idea is incredible. Could not find fault. As a chef myself it is an amazing idea and executed perfectly. All in all the whole day was fantastic.
