The Alton Towers Resort is renowned for ground-breaking, world-first rollercoasters and is home to a fantastical combination of rides, attractions & shows for thrill-seekers. It is near the village of Alton, in the parishes of Denstone and Farley.
You can join us on this event whether you are with us for the Denstone Weekend or you can just come along to join in the fun on the day. For those staying at Denstone College we are less than 5 miles away from Alton Towers so a “must do” event for the Sunday we thought. So the only thing you have to decide is how best to spend your time and which ride you’re going to try…
There are 10 thrill seeking rides to whet your appetite including:
Nemesis - still regarded as one of the best rollercoasters in the world; Wicker Man - the world’s most immersive rollercoaster experience to date; Galactica - Blast through an advanced space travel portal to another dimension; Oblivion - this ride beckons you to face your fears, and as you’re held, overhanging the edge of the world’s first vertical drop rollercoaster; Rita - powers you straight to 100kph in just 2.5 seconds, putting your body through 4.5G; TH13TEEN – the world’s first freefall drop rollercoaster; The Smiler - This is the world’s first 14 loop rollercoaster; The Blade - In a few swings of The Blade, you'll be zero gravity, near vertical; Enterprise - Only the circular force of Enterprise keeps you in place, as the monstrous steel wheel drags you upwards until you are hanging upside down, and round and round; Sub-Terra - A psychologically and physically thrilling experience.
Other attractions include: Sharkbait Reef by SEA LIFE, The Gardens, The Towers and Skyride. In addition to this there is also the Spa, Water Park and Extraordinary Golf, all of which are additional costs on the day and probably require booking in advance as availability is often at a premium.
The park is open from 10am to 6pm however please feel free to leave at a time to suit yourselves.
Please note: This is a ticketed event and we can only refund if we manage to sell your place on.
