Alton Towers Theme Park opens!

Alton Towers Resort have re-opened the theme park for their 11-day February event. Today, Friday 18th February, sees free entry for all guests at the park – so long as they ‘check in’ using a Facebook application on a mobile device. Free hotel stays are also up for grabs for the first 100 people to do so.
