Alton Towers Resort brought the 2017 season to a close this weekend with their annual Ultimate Fireworks Spectacular. With the park at virtually full capacity across the weekend, the final weekend of the 2017 season promised to be one of the best of the year.

This year’s display was themed around ‘What Alton Towers Means to Guests’, and combined well choreographed lighting and lasers with an impressive range of fireworks – including some which created new and different effects to what has been seen in previous Alton Towers fireworks displays. The show was accompanied by an emotional soundtrack, which featured the voice of John Wardley, who helped make Alton Towers Resort what it is today. It also included the voices of the whole spectrum of guests, including some TowersTimes and SouthParks community members, from the very young through to older guests who visited the Resort when it first opened as a theme park.
