CBeebies Land at Alton Towers to be even bigger and better in 2017 with the arrival of two new attractions, the Go Jetters Vroomster Zoom Ride and The Furchester Hotel Live Show.
The latest additions to the theme park open on the 25th March, and will be located between the existing Big Fun Show Time Arena and the Tree Fu Tom Training Camp.
Alton Towers has confirmed that the first ever CBeebies Land Hotel will be opening in 2017, designed exclusively for young families and pre-schoolers.
Adjoining the existing Alton Towers Hotel, the all new 76-room hotel will spread over four floors and will have its own dedicated entertainment area, restaurant and reception area.
Skin Snatchers has been announced as the brand new live action horror maze joining Alton Towers Scarefest.
Alton Towers Scarefest will return for Halloween 2016 on 8th-9th, 15th-16th and 21st-31st October. This year's event includes Skin Snatchers, Sub Species: The End Games and Terror of the Towers: What Lies Within. There will also be plenty of family frights, including Skelvin’s Spooky Storytime, Phil & Franklyn’s Ghoul School, and Patch’s Trick-Or-Treat Party!
Alton Towers has submitted a full planning application for Secret Weapon 8, a new wooden roller coaster in the area previously occupied by The Flume, to open in 2018.
The ground-breaking new ride development is likely to be built by Great Coasters International and may feature a launched lift hill section along with several inversions.
With the retirement of The Flume and now the addition of teasers for a ground-breaking new ride development, the next Secret Weapon project is coming to Alton Towers.
The area occupied by The Flume sits between Mutiny Bay, Katanga Canyon and The Gardens. This is a large wooded area, which fits with plans that are potentially for a wooden roller coaster.
