Santa Claus will be back at Alton Towers Resort during the Christmas season of 2018, bringing with him plenty of festive fun. Guests can 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, Alice in Wonderland.

The 2018 season once again sees a format where the type of Santa experience guests receive is dependent on which of the Resort’s hotels they stay in.

Santa’s Woodland Grotto

For guests staying in the Alton Towers Hotel and the CBeebies Land Hotel

“Meet the Elves in the heart of CBeebies Land and follow them down Mistletoe Lane to Santa’s cosy Woodland Grotto. Santa has taken a break from his Christmas preparations and can’t wait to spend some quality time with you and your family. Capture the moment with a perfect family photo of you and Santa Claus. “

Santa’s Festive Breakfast

For guests staying in the Alton Towers Hotel or a Luxury Treehouse

“Mrs Claus is busy preparing a glorious breakfast feast for you to enjoy! Along the way you will meet Sir Algenon and his friends, Eric the Yeti and Darwin the Dodo, as they share stories of their intrepid explorations to the North Pole. The Elves have some festive songs to share, and there’s an extra special visit from Father Christmas himself!”

Santa’s Tipi Party

For guests staying in Splash Landings Hotel

“The fairies and elves are hosting a party in their festive-themed Tipi! Take part in a fun-filled family activity before being led to the beautifully decorated Christmas Tipi. There’s singing, dancing and of course their guests of honour – Santa and Mrs. Claus. Plus, enjoy a tasty festive drink – mulled wine for the adults and hot chocolate for children.”
