Alton Towers Amusement Park
Alton Towers Resort, often shortened to Alton Towers, is a theme park resort located in Staffordshire, England, near the village of Alton. The resort, which is operated by Merlin Entertainments Group, incorporates a water park and hotel complex. The location debuted in 1860 featuring flower shows and garden tours, but was later transformed into a theme park in 1980.[Now, it is the largest amusement park in the UK by area at 370 hectacres and the second most visited after Legoland Windsor.
The park operates six major roller coasters – Nemesis, Oblivion, Rita, Thirteen, The Smiler, and Galactica – as well as other attractions. The first hotel accommodation opened in 1996 as the Alton Towers Hotel. The Alton Towers Waterpark and a Caribbean-themed Splash Landings Hotel were added in 2003. The Enchanted Village opened in 2015, and a new hotel based on the CBeebies brand is scheduled to open in July 2017. The complex also includes conference facilities, crazy golf and a high ropes course.
While the theme park closes for several months of the year, many of its hotels and amenities are open year-round. Special events are hosted throughout the year, including concert nights, a Scarefest event for Halloween, and a season-ending fireworks display.
