We’re here to help you hop into Easter half-term the right way with our top tips on making the most of your next visit.  


1. Eggstra Special Preparation – Plan ahead using the official Alton Towers Resort app! 

Did you know you can pre-plan your day on our official Alton Towers Resort app using the ‘My Plan’ feature? Simply add in the members of your group plus the areas you’re interested in, and the app will suggests rides and attractions based on your party’s preferences!

3. She’s back… 

Speaking of, the UK’s most iconic rollercoaster, Nemesis Reborn, is officially back with a vengeance in the newly revamped Forbidden Valley! Get ready to experience a fearsome creator, fury heightened with intense inversions and dominating drops in both the day and night as Alton After Dark is back for one more day on Saturday 30th March. Make sure to factor in plenty of time to ride as Nemesis’ fan-favourite status remains strong.

4. Spring sunshine or April showers – Be prepared for all kinds of weather! 

With Spring now in full swing, the weather can become unpredictable at times. Save your feet from a soggy stomp around the park and be prepared for all weather conditions! We recommend packing a raincoat and sunglasses…just to be on the safe side. If the rain does catch you out, don’t worry! Our Resort ponchos are available from select shops across the park.
