The Basics

Once a stately home owned by the earls of Shrewsbury, Alton Towers has been open to the public since the 1950s. In the 1980s, the pleasure gardens and lake were given an update with the addition of several rides, including the Corkscrew roller coaster, the Pirate Ship, and the Log Flume ride. Many new rides have been added over the years, from the Nemesis, which dangles riders’ feet in the air, to Thirteen, a super-charged ghost train.

The site also includes an indoor water park, a relaxation spa, and several themed hotels, plus individual wooden “Star-Gazing” sleeping pods. Visitors can spend just one day at the theme park or opt for a weekend package that includes access to all the attractions.

Really enjoyed the day, the smiler ride was the best. The place was quiet due to it being a school day, but that helped get around all the rides in the day

You can get a single ride fast track once inside..I would recommend it for the Smiler! For the rest of the rides the waiting time was decent (20min) on a Saturday

Alton Towers Resort 1 Day Admission Ticket
It was a rainy day and we arrived at the Alton Towers early in the morning and didn't had to queue at all so we could go straight in. At the attractions the longest queue time was 10 minutes. We only had to wait for like 45 minutes at one attraction as there was a technical issue, otherwise everything went very smooth. It was my first time at the Alton Towers and the rides were fun, will definitely go there again.
