Whether you are a local resident, avid theme park go-er or just a little curious, Alton Towers will welcome everyone as they give the public a rare glimpse into the future of the resort this weekend.
Over the past year or so, the resort management team and Merlin Entertainments have been putting together a massive £multi-million longer term plan – the first time that they have been able to do so for many years.
There are set to be new rides and accommodation along with heritage and infrastructure, which will presumably all be kicked off with the Secret Weapon Six rollercoaster project for 2010. Ian Crabbe, director at the resort, had the following to say:
We very much hope that our local community will be pleased by our confidence in the future of the resort, and interested in our broad development strategy, particularly in the current economic environment.
However, this exhibition is open to everybody who has an interest in the resort, not just residents of Alton and Farley.
Our economic impact spreads throughout the Staffordshire Moorlands and the West Midlands and a stable future for us represents good news for the many businesses that also rely on us.
If you would like to go and see the blueprint for Alton Towers over the next decade, you can visit the Emperor Suite at the Alton Towers Hotel on Friday 26th June from 12:00noon to 9:00pm or on Saturday 27th June from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
We look forward to bringing you details as they come in!
