Alton Towers

Enjoy the laughs and frights of the blockbusting attractions and the terrific thrill rides at the UK's most famous Theme Park, Alton Towers.

Experience the rib-tickling fun of The Smiler (new for 2013), with its jaw-dropping 14 inversions and 30 metre drops.

Enter the Forbidden Valley and ride the legendary, inverted, roller coaster, the "Nemesis", the twisting, rolling "Ripsaw" and the swinging ship the "Blade".

Dare to brave the "Dark Forest" by walking through the "Haunted Hollow". Visit the "Haunted House" or enter the ruins of the "Towers" and visit the haunted chambers, home to Hex.

Travel on the "Runaway Mine Train" as it thunders through the rocky landscape of "Katanga Canyon" or splash through it on the "Congo River Rapids" or take a ride on "The Flume" for an extra soaking.

Visit Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in "Cloud Cuckoo Land", or play in the ball pools, slides and playgrounds of "Adventure Land". Take a journey on the "Sonic Spinball", the spinning roller coaster and the tree-tops "Squirrel Nutty Ride".

Marvel at the spectacular views from the Sky Ride. Enjoy a quiet stroll along the winding pathways of the valley or just relax and unwind in the Gardens where elegant conservatories are surrounded by a vast array of trees and flowers.

The Theme Park has something for families as well as for all thrill-seekers.
