Theme Park at Christmas

Christmas 2018The theme park throws open its doors to guests this Christmas, with a range of family rides open, along with Santa and other festive treats for all the family.

This year the theme park will be open to paying day guests with three types of ticket are available for the event. The basic ticket is for the Christmas Markets only but guests can choose to add on entrance to Lightopia, as well as the full price ticket including the traditional Festive Day Out rides in selected areas of the park.

The headline attraction for the event is Lightopia Christmas Wonder, an interactive attraction of magical light installations, which will take guests through a seasonal wonderland during a 45-minute walkthrough.

Magic descends across Alton Towers for the season with hundreds of Christmas trees and yards of decorations across the park. For guests with a Festive Day Out ticket, CBeebies Land, Mutiny Bay and the areas around the Towers are open for the event, with the following rides and attractions on offer:

Towers Street and Adventure Land
