Each year Alton Towers Resort puts on a great variety of events both at the hotels and across the theme park, making your stay that little bit more special. From being lost and terrified in a scaremaze, to telling Santa Claus what you would like for Christmas, each event has plenty of Alton Towers magic!


February Half Term

The Pirates are taking over, with a variety of themed entertainment and the opportunity to experience the attractions of Mutiny Bay.


Festival of Thrills

Mardi Gras

The colourful sights and lively sounds of Mardi Gras arrive at the Resort, bringing a variety of entertainment and special food options.

During the Halloween season, the theme park offers a new kind of thrill with rides opening until late and the opportunity to be petrified in a horrifying scaremaze.



The theme park season ends with a bang, as the Resort holds its fantastical 3-day firework event, with a final opportunity to enjoy the rides in the dark.
