Feb Half Term - Moshi Monsters

February Half Term

Dancing with the Stars

7th-9th March

Know your foxtrot from your funky chicken? This was the perfect chance to stay over at the resort and dance with the stars.



The carnival made way for a new scare zone based around twisted fairytales and guests could spend the night in the Towers themselves for the first time.



7th-9th November

The resort ended the season with an explosive Fireworks spectacular which saw a battle between dreams and nightmares.



Winter returned to the resort, with the usual packages as Father Christmas took residence once more bringing with him some festive cheer.
