What is Alton Towers?

Alton Towers Resort is one of the UK’s most popular theme parks, with 40 rides and activities spanning from record-breaking rollercoasters to an indoor and outdoor waterpark.

Established on April 4, 1980, the Staffordshire-based theme park’s initial rides included the UK’s first-ever double loop roller coaster – the Corkscrew, a Pirate Ship, Cine 2000 and a Wildlife Museum.

It is the largest theme park in the UK, covering 550 acres.

A new £12.5 million indoor rollercoaster codenamed ‘Project Horizon’ is set to be built, but very little is known about the project so far.

When does Alton Towers open in 2024?

Alton Towers was closed for the winter season but reopened on March 16, 2024.

Once the theme park season ends, Alton Towers will once again close on November 7, 2024, but this does not mean you’ll have to wait until the new year to visit again.

Alton Tower’s Christmas Day Out experiences (available on select days only) are the perfect way to escape dark and dreary winter days.

And for those wanting to immerse themselves in the magic of Christmas overnight, the park also runs Santa Sleepovers.
