Alton Towers Sprummer update – June 2019

Hello all, just thought I’d drop you a quick update as we head towards the summer holidays! I can’t work out if it’s still Spring or now full Summer, and neither can the weather, so I thought I’d involve both seasons in the subject line! Sort of a portmanteau, which is what you could use when visiting…..

Our Stargazing Pods opened at Easter and so far we’ve been blessed with pretty good weather making the actual ‘star gazing’ a much more pleasant experience! Our guest feedback has been tremendously positive so we think these additions will work well during the peak periods. They’ll be open from the May half term week right up until the end of August and then will go to weekends during September and the first half of October and full time again during Scarefest.

The brand new Alton Towers Dungeon is a hilariously hideous journey through Staffordshire’s darkest history that has proved to be a massive hit with our guests as they encounter the most frightfully peculiar characters from the past! Taking the stand to be sentenced by the dis-honorable Justice of the Peace, the Bishop of Stafford, before being condemned to a traitors’ boat ride down the Black River into the chambers of the Dungeon, and even surviving the bubbling bubonic plague with the clueless Doctor’s Assistant has produced feedback scores on a par with the Wicker Man! The team behind the attraction are thrilled to have disgusted so many people! If you haven’t visited yet, tickets can be pre-booked on line for just £5pp.

SPA: Leave You Glowing Package
Enjoy three hours access to our Aqua Relaxation Rooms, indulge in an Afternoon Tea for two and relax with a 25 minute Decleor Discovery Facial for just £57.50 each (based on two people).
Call the Spa directly to book on: 0871 702 7043.

Waterpark: Twilight Offer
Want to make a splash at the end of your day? For just £8 come to our wacky waterpark and enjoy the last two hours of opening! (No need to pre-book however it is subject to availability).

Fireworks dates and booking process
Just a reminder, Scarefest will run on the weekends of 5th, 6th, 12th and 13th October and then for a two week period from 19th October until 3rd November. Local resident passes are valid until 3rd November but they do exclude the last Saturday of Scarefest which is the 2nd.

Fireworks will run on Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th November and local resident passes will be valid on the Friday and the Sunday. To book your space (which is essential), email and let us know how many people will be coming, and how many vehicles you’ll be needing parking for. We will have a dedicated turnstile for you to use when you arrive so your passes can be manually scanned to confirm they haven’t been previously used and are still valid.

We’re all caught up with ticket applications now so if you’re still waiting we may not have received your original request; please re-send to and they will process it as quickly as possible. If you’d rather apply by mail, send a copy of your Council Tax bill to Alton Towers Admissions, Alton Towers, Alton ST10 4DB (enclosing an SAE).

That’s all for now. As ever if you have any questions, concerns or comments please let me know.

Here’s to a sunny summer for us all!
