Santa Claus returned to Alton Towers Resort during the Christmas season of 2017, bringing with him plenty of festive fun. Guests could book themselves a stay at one of the resort’s hotels with a choice of three Santa experiences, as well as enjoy the fun-packed pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk.

The 2017 season saw a slight change in format of the Resort’s festive offerings, with guests’ type of Santa experience dependent on which of the Resort’s hotels they chose to stay in.

Classic Santa Stay

For guests staying in Explorer and Moon Voyage rooms at Alton Towers Hotel, and the CBeebies Land Hotel

“Meet Santa in the heart of CBeebies Land with Santa’s elves and follow them through Mistletoe Lane to Santa’s Woodland grotto. Inside you will get to spend some quality time with the Big Man himself and have a photo with a perfect photo of Santa and the family.”

Explorer’s Santa Escape

For guests staying in Arctic Explorer rooms or themed rooms (excluding Moon Voyage) in Alton Towers Hotel

“Enjoy a morning feast prepared by Mrs Claus herself, there will be stories of Sir Algenon’s adventures to the North Pole and songs from Santa’s elves; culminating with an extra special visit from Father Christmas.”

Enchanted Santa Break

For guests staying in a Woodland Lodge in the Enchanted Village

“Visit Santa in a magical teepee, on arrival children will be greeted with a hot chocolate, and grown-ups with mulled wine. Sing carols with Mrs Claus, make Christmas decorations with the elves and enjoy story-time with Santa in this fabulous group adventure.”
