There’s always something new to enjoy at Alton Towers Resort and 2017 is no exception. This year’s new additions are primarily targeted at younger guests, with two new attractions in CBeebies Land, where guests will be able to join the Go Jetters on an exciting mission and visit The Furchester Hotel to help welcome their special visitor, alongside the opening of the CBeebies Land Hotel in July.

Go Jetters Vroomster Zoom Ride

Get ready to launch from the Jetpad and embark upon a Go Jetters global adventure with Kyan, Xuli, Lars and Foz in a Vroomster that’s complete with its very own controls which enable guests to move up and down as they fly around the world in their search for Grandmaster Glitch and his Grimbots.


The Furchester Hotel Live

Guests can make their way through the Hotel’s revolving doors and join Phoebe, Funella, Furgus, Elmo and Cookie Monster as they prepare for the exciting arrival of Chick Swagger, which may involve singing and dancing along to Chick Swagger’s famous rock-a-doodle-do hit, Tail Feather Shake.


CBeebies Land Hotel

In 2017, the first ever CBeebies Land Hotel is set to open at Alton Towers Resort, where guests will be able to step inside a colourful world bursting with music, stories and adventure.
