Alton Towers is a theme park located in Staffordshire in the Northern region of England. It is a park that caters to all with a water park, 18-hole golf course, resort, spa, 50+rides and lodging.
On our recent visit to the theme park, it was courtesy of peperami who sent us some tickets to #TerrifyAFriend. I consider myself to be a novice thrill seeker but roller coasters are on another level. In this article, we aim to share some unsurprising things about Alton Towers.
Things-to-do @ Alton Towers
The first time I ever visited Alton Towers was over 10 years ago, I remember it like it was yesterday. I went with my now ex and he is a thrill seeker so it means riding the scariest roller coasters. All I remember from that visit is screaming my lungs out and winning a
Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I went with my sister to the theme park. We both decided riding roller coasters weren’t something we were too keen on. But to our surprise, we found other things that kept us entertained for hours. Here are some of the things you can do at Alton Towers
- Alton Towers Spa – now this is something I could definitely get used to. I never knew that there was a spa at the theme park, all I could recall was screaming. Thankfully if you’re not into roller coasters, this is something that you can definitely tuck in.
- The Gardens – now this was an incredible surprise. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and after enjoying a picnic, we went for a walk. It was then that we stumbled upon the most gorgeous gardens ever and couldn’t stop admiring.
- Roller coaster restaurant – unfortunately during our visit it was packed. We decided to skip it for our next visit to the theme park but if you’ve ever been you know its gorgeous. It is definitely a unique dining experience set on a roller coaster track.
- Extraordinary Golf – what’s lovely about it is that all ages are welcome to play. We are such bad golf players but that doesn’t mean we couldn’t give it a try. It is definitely worth the money, it is so much fun to play with friends and family.
There are many other things to do at the theme park like ride roller coasts, visit CBeebies for kids, a waterpark and more. If you want to do it all, its best to book a stay at
the resort’s lodging.
We had such a lovely time at Alton Towers, if you’re not into rides, you can picnic. We spent some time in the cable car which had an aerial view of the theme park. There is so much fun to be hard, it is not just for kids, adults can have fun too.
