Security at Alton Towers Resort

Security Search Checkpoints in Operation

To prevent offensive weapons or dangerous articles from being brought into the Attraction, guests are admitted to the Attraction subject to the condition that, if requested to do so, they will allow themselves and/or their belongings to be searched.  It is prohibited to bring into the Attraction any weapons, fireworks, smoke bombs, glass bottles, or other articles which may cause injury. Any person found to be in possession of an article deemed to be offensive or dangerous will be immediately escorted from the Attraction without any right to a refund and Merlin reserves the right to make reports to the relevant authorities, which may lead to prosecution. The consumption of intoxicating liquor is permitted only in authorised places within the Attraction.  Accordingly, intoxicating liquor may not be taken into the Attraction except with the express permission of Merlin and any persons found possessing alcohol, or who appear to be under the influence of alcohol may be refused admission to the Attraction or escorted from the Attraction without any right to a refund.  The use of illegal substances and/or legal highs (including, but not limited to, laughing gas) are strictly prohibited and any persons found possessing, using or who appear to be under the influence of illegal substances and/or legal highs will be refused admission or escorted from the Attraction without any right to a refund.

CCTV Cameras in Operation 

CCTV cameras are used to assist in the proper running of the Attraction. Additionally, body-worn cameras are deployed on Security Officers operating around the Resort.

All vehicles, items, belongings and other property brought into the Attraction by guests are at their own risk and we accept no liability for any loss or damage to such property. As such, we recommend that guests do not bring valuables to the Attraction. 

Please report any suspicious activities to a member of staff immediately - See Something, Say Something.
