Details for this year’s Oktoberfest have yet to be released, so the information on this page relates to the 2020 event.

A new event is coming to Alton Towers in 2020, as the resort celebrates Oktoberfest during September and October.

The park will be bringing a family-friendly, socially-distanced take on the traditional German festival, featuring special entertainment as well as tasty food and drink.


Starting at 3pm each day, the front lawns will be home to  two Bavarian entertainment venues. These outdoor stages will host a range of singers and characters into the evening, including some favourites from across the resort.

Of course no Oktoberfest would be complete without a bit of oompah and throughout the event the park will be home to  the German Jukebox, who will bring a fresh take on traditional German music by combining Bavarian classics with modern favourites.

Food and Drink

Around the Bavarian entertainment area you will find a selection of stalls, bring German treats to the park alongside a range of other international cuisine.

  • Spanferkel – hog roast sandwiches, served with apple sauce and stuffing
  • Schwenk Grill –  traditional wursts and pretzels
  • Geladene Pommes – loaded fries inspired by world cuisines and pizza.
  • Lebukchen – traditional deserts and hot chocolate

What would Oktoberfest be without a healthy stein of beer… or two. Your tipple of choice can be found at the Bier Keller, serving traditional spiced Gl├╝hwein as well as a selection of beers, including Spaten, Erdinger and Becks.

Rides in the Dark

Late night opening can only mean one thing – all your favourite rides will be available for night riding until 8pm each weekend evening. As the night closes in, classics such as Nemesis and Thirteen take on a whole new thrill in the dark, whilst the flames of Wicker Man burn even brighter.

On days with late openings CBeebies Land will close at 7pm.
