The well-loved attraction will open its doors to the public in April this year.

We are so excited to hear that Alton Towers will be reopening its gates for a season full of entertainment, thrills & joy in April this year. The news has already brought music to many people’s ears, as it’s a chance for us all to simply go out and have fun!

Whilst the theme park and self-contained accommodation won’t open until 12th April 2021, the Alton Towers Gardens will be open every day from 29th March – 11th April 2021.*

The Forbidden Valley will no longer be forbidden, the Gardens will begin to bloom again & children will be able to rejoin their favourite characters to play and explore the different rides and attractions at Cbeebies Land

What is a Ride Access Pass?

“A Ride Access Pass is a virtual queuing system designed to make reasonable adjustments to assist guests who do not understand the concept of queuing, have a physical disability that prevents them standing for extended periods of time or permanently non-ambulant guests.”

The Access Card is an alternative form of documentation used to communicate a disabled person’s access requirements.
