Alton Towers – Post Code ST40 4DB
Alton Towers is the second most popular theme park in the UK, after only Blackpool. Its location in almost the center of England — near the village of Alton in Staffordshire — makes it convenient for travel from practically everywhere. From London, Alton Towers is 161 miles northwest, or about a three hour drive (if the traffic coperates). From Birmingham or Manchester, it’s only half that distance.
What’s At Alton Towers
Alton Towers has it all. It has a theme park, a water park, two hotels and a spa. Visitors who stay in the Alton Towers official hotels receive special privileges – they have access to early ride times, before the crowds start to arrive.
The Theme Park
What’s a theme park without rides? Alton Towers has some of the most fun and exciting rides in the UK, like the new Th13teen, a roller coaster with a horror theme. The Blade is a gigantic pendulum which allows riders to experience zero gravity as it swings back and forth, higher and higher. Experience G-forces greater than those from a rocket launch on the Nemesis thrill ride, where you are literally hanging over rivers and rock. For younger children, there are such light-hearted rides as the Congo River Rapids and the Runaway Mine Train, the Flume and Sonic Spinball (featuring Sonic the Hedgehog). The very youngest kids have their own rides – slow-moving “introductory” roller coasters and carousels.
In addition to rides there are plenty of attractions for those who prefer to keep their feet on solid ground, such as Old McDonald’s Farmyard which features a petting zoo, two nine-hole miniature gold courses, and Shark-Bait reef, an aquarium with a pirate theme.
The Water Park
There are several fun water slides, for example the Master Blaster, which is a long slide which twists and turns around the whole water park, and Flash Floods, an outdoor section of the waterpark.
There’s plenty of fun to be had in the Alton Towers Hotel, which has lots of eye-catching features to amuse the youngsters, and comfortable lodgings and fine foods for the oldsters. Splash Landings Hotel is built around a Caribbean theme, and hosts the Water Park.
Splash Landings Hotel has the Water Park, the Alton Towers Hotel has the luxury Spa. Massages, body treatments, and relaxation rooms abound, for a few hours of tranquility.
If at all possible, visit Alton Towers on the weekdays… thus you avoid some of the crowds that come on the weekends. The hotels, spa and waterpark are open year round. The theme park itself is closed during the winter months, from early November to late March. Check Alton Towers site for exact details.
The theme park and resort is sandwiched between the M6 (with Birmingham to the south and Manchester to the North along it) and the M1 (with Coventry to the south and Sheffield to the north.) Or set your SatNav device to the post code ST10 4DB, and ask for “fastest route.”
