Wondering how to entertain the little ones this February half term? It seems like yesterday when we were making their packed lunches for the first day of school of 2011. Now the February half term is edging closer, parents will be trying to think up some ideas of how to keep them occupied. Lucky for us, Alton Towers is opening its gates this half term and has some great offers to keep the cost down. Exclusively for moneysupermarket.com customers, we’ve just got in a range of Alton Towers vouchers, including 2 for 1 on admission.
Alton Towers will open its gates on 19th Feb and will remain open until 27th Feb, giving you plenty of time to catch Alton Towers before it shuts again until 20th March, when their season starts. If you’ve been to Alton Towers before you’ll know that there are rides for everyone whether you’re old or young, big or small. The theme parks span over 500 acres of land, segregated into twelve themed lands for you to explore. The resort has two hotels and a water park, so you could even make a short break of it. Here are a few of the fantastic attractions Alton Towers has to offer…
Th13teen is one of Alton Towers’ newest additions, and probably one for the older kids. This is one for the adrenaline junkies and those who enjoy being scared silly! Take a ride through the thick Dark Forest and be surprised, terrified and introduced to the ‘unknown horror that has been unleashed from an ancient crypt!’
Air is one of the first horizontally seated roller coasters which makes you feel like you’re flying. Get strapped in and swoop past trees, rocks and even venture underground.
You have to be 1.4m tall to ride Air, so another one for the older kids.
Congo River Rapids
This is one of the more subdued rides which the smaller kids can enjoy too; if you don’t mind getting a little wet! Float through the Katanga Canyon with your family for a relaxed yet invigorating experience. This creates a nice break from the adrenaline fuelled thrill rides that are dotted around the park.
Old MacDonald’s Farmyard
This part of Alton Towers is perfect for the younger kids, where they can drive some mini tractors, ride the Doodle Doo Derby roundabout and play in the Berry Bish Bash- a playhouse full of foam balls. You can even take a boat ride to spot animals on the River Bank Eye Spy. This is a great opportunity for parents to relax a little while the younger family members continue to wear themselves out.
Don’t forget your exclusive printable 2 for 1 Alton Towers vouchers from moneysupermarket.com, you can save up to half price on your admission fees!
