To celebrate the start of summer The Alton Towers Resort is giving the nation the chance to win the ultimate escape. Throughout August, the UK’s number 1 theme park will send its Fantastical Express bus to visit 5 towns and cities across the UK, whisking the residents away to spend the day at Britain’s Greatest Escape.
With Britain officially back in recession, the Alton Towers Resort is giving the UK something to smile about this summer. From 18th July, simply nominate a town that deserves a great escape at www.facebook.com/altontowersresort and the Alton Towers Resort could be sending the Fantastical Express! The first winning town will be announced on 23rd July with the first winners collected from their town on 28th July.
Alton Towers Resort is the perfect day out or short break for summer and with two brand new attractions for 2012, there has never been a better time to visit. Deep underground beneath the Alton Towers Resort lies Nemesis Sub-Terra. A psychically and psychologically thrilling experience, Nemesis Sub-Terra takes guests into a darkened chamber where the egg of an alien creature has been unearthed. Thought to be that of the original Nemesis creature, it quickly emerges that all is not as it seems. For those after family fun, Ice Age The 4D Experience combines 3-D footage, based on the third movie in the blockbuster series, with an exhilarating variety of physical effects including icy blasts, snow and bubbles. Fans will also have the opportunity to meet both Sid and Scrat around the Alton Towers Resort.
