The Alton Towers Dungeon Molly

LAUGH & SCREAM

You’ll be screaming with laughter whilst being sentenced by the Bishop of Stafford, before being condemned to a traitors boat ride down the Black River.

In these dark chambers, try to survive the plague, and endure humiliation as well as pain at the hand of the Torturer.

If you escape… stop at the local tavern, known to be one of Dick Turpin’s hideouts, he may even shoot by! Then visit the Witch of Burslem’s cottage... to come face to face with her ghost!

Miss it and you’ll be GUTTED!

The Judge at the Alton Towers Dungeon

THE JUDGE

FUN! THRILLS! LAUGHTER! All unforgivable in the eyes of the puritanical Justice of the Peace, the bombastic Bishop of Stafford! Take the stand in his courtroom and plead your case. In fact… it doesn’t matter, you are all peasants! GUILTY!

The Boat Ride at The Alton Towers Dungeon

THE BLACK RIVER BOAT RIDE

You are guilty! So you are going on a little trip down the black river beneath Alton Towers. Step into the boat and take in the sights and… errr… smells of the Alton Towers Dungeons. Say hi to some of the Dungeons residents… don’t worry if they don’t wave… they’re a little tied up!

The Torturer at The Alton Towers Dungeon

THE TORTURER

He has ways of making you talk… he has even more ways to make you SHUT UP! Take a seat in the Torturers chair and come face to face… or red hot poker to nostril with all the Torturers favourite devices. You’ll be screaming with laughter in no time at all.

The Highwayman at The Alton Towers Dungeon

THE HIGHWAYMAN

The most desperate, dashing and despicable highwayman needs hideouts all over the country. Who would have thought one would have been round the corner from Alton Towers? Pull up a chair and meet the friendly owners of the Welsh Harp Inn, nothing is TOO MUCH TROUBLE! You never know… Dick Turpin might just shoot by!

The Plague Doctor at The Alton Towers Dungeon

The Haunting at the Alton Towers Dungeon

THE HAUNTING

Latest information regarding Coronavirus

Further to recent updates from the Government on the response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we have taken the very difficult decision to close Alton Towers Resort until further notice.

Have a short break booked when the Resort is closed?
Following the latest Government guidelines (issued on 10th May), and given the continued uncertainty about when we will be able to reopen, we are now asking guests with short breaks booked between 1st June up to and including 3rd July to move your booking free of charge. Please see the FAQs below for information about how to do this. Our teams will be moving bookings in date order, so please bear with us. We will get back to you as fast as we can, but we must prioritise guests whose reservations are imminent.

Have a Park ticket pre-booked when the Resort is closed?
Guests with pre-booked theme park tickets for dates when the Alton Towers Theme Park is closed will be able to use their tickets on any other day during the 2020 theme park season (excluding Fireworks events on 6th, 7th and 8th November). Further information for guests with pre-booked and promotional tickets will be published on our website prior to opening.

In our 40th Birthday season, we are determined to be here for you and your families, offering awesome thrills and fantastic memories, as we have done for decades and will continue to do for many more.
We’ll be sharing our full plans soon.
In the meantime, please keep smiling, clapping and supporting each other.

See you soon! #AltonTowersTogether
