Saying "Theme Park" in England usually refers to the Alton Towers. Located around the palace grounds of the tower from which the park derives its name, the theme park leaves little or nothing to be desired. A wonderful scenery, a well-balanced range of attractions and a professional implementation ensure an exciting day off. Many of the extraordinary attractions at Alton Towers owe their unusual style to the fact that it's not allowed to build higher than the trees grow in the old palace grounds surrounding a manor house which isn't in use by the Royal family anymore.

Awesome
The best park in Europe - at least for coaster enthusiasts: corkscrew, catapult, lots of airtime, vertical drop, loops, etc. what more can you ask for!!!! Moreover, the have some beautiful spots and many attractions for kids.

Memorable Day
When my wife suggested that we should visit Alton Towers Park, I actually never gave it much thought because to me that was like wasting a precious day. Even so I still agreed to go with my family to the park. When we got to the park; I actually knew that I was wrong all along. The breeze that welcomed us to the park was so comforting.

Great Theme Park
Best vacation for my family. Is as advertised best theme park. Hotels and Spas on site for the adults. Tons of attractions, UK's version of Universal Studios in my opinion. Kids had ok time.

Great place to go
This was an incredible day. The park was spotless and all the attractions were open. My favourite ride was the coaster oblivion. Lovely views and good rides.
