Special Events

Each year Alton Towers Resort puts on a great variety of events both at the hotels and across the theme park, making your stay that little bit more special. From being lost and terrified in a scaremaze, to telling Santa Claus what you would like for Christmas, each event has plenty of Alton Towers magic!


February Half Term

Prior to the main season, the theme park opens its doors and holds this more family orientated event. However, there are also a selection of rides available for thrill-seeking guests.



During the Halloween season, the theme park offers a new kind of thrill with rides opening until late and the opportunity to be petrified in a horrifying scaremaze.



The theme park season ends with a bang, as Alton Towers Resort holds its fantastical 2-day firework event. Guests can enjoy rides in the dark, before being enchanted by a wondrous firework display.



Santa Claus will be back at Alton Towers Resort during the Christmas season, bringing with him plenty of festive fun.


New Year’s Eve

See in the new year in style at Alton Towers Resort with Sir Algenon and Ma Garritta each laying on a new year’s celebration, or you can don your smartest attire and head to the Gala Dinner.
