The biggest signs that summer is finally on its way are the League cup final, the hour going back, and Alton Towers (finally – after a long, cold and bleak winter) re-opening its fantastical doors to the public: let the frivolity and fun commence! Now it’s summer.
We’ve already had the League Cup final (which is somehow played in February now?!), the hours spring forward on Sunday March 31st, and – wait for it – Alton Towers re-opens THIS weekend! Happy days!
That means roller-coasters and candy floss, big queues and queue-jumping passes, unexpected turns, mesmerising tumbles, and a carnival atmosphere. It’s about feeling young again, feeling inspired again, and feeling excited about the little things again.
There’s new rides and features for the 2019 season – including the Wicker Man - and everyone needs to ride the Nemesis at least once in their life.
And it’s not just the theme-park proper that’s open – there’s also all the resort hotels and the amazing Alton Towers Waterpark to get stuck in to. Ah yes, happy times are here again - forget Brexit: just go and lose yourself in the park for the day.
