Alton Towers

KidRated’s Alton Towers Top Tips:

  • Too young and small for roller coasters? Check out CBeebies Land or the Waterpark
  • Get the most out of your trip by staying in one of the resort hotels
  • Have a look at our top five theme parks here

Alton Towers is the place to visit for a fun filled day or even a weekend. With a number of hotels on-site, there is no reason to rush your visit, and this gives you a free second day theme park ticket plus the chance to access the theme park an hour earlier than other guests.


The number one theme park in the UK, there is something for all the family. Not only are there some exhilarating rides such as The Smiler or old favourite Nemesis, but there are plenty of attractions to keep the whole family entertained, such as an Ice Age 4D Experience and Sharkbait Reef. Parents can even relax in the spa after perhaps one too many roller coaster rides.


Become a Galactinaut on Galacticathe world’s first rollercoaster with fully dedicated virtual reality. Then head to The Rollercoaster Restaurant as it’s perfect for families who want a dining experience with a twist, or more precisely, a loop-the-loop. Watch your lunch defy gravity as your order rides down a rollercoaster to your table.


There are water rides, scary rides and a whole host of characters to meet along the way. You will never get bored at Alton Towers!


The park also hosts birthday parties at the Alton Towers Waterpark and Extraordinary Golf.
