Did you know that Alton Towers are in the process of building a new theme park ride for the 2010 season?

As usual the new ride is a closely guarded secret!

You can register your e-mail address at to get news leading up to the launch of the ride.

All that we know so far is that it will be a world first attraction!

Our visit to Alton Towers

This afternoon we were tourists and went on our annual visit to Alton Towers Theme Park!

We aim to visit the theme park in the spring but usually end up going in the Autumn before the half term holidays start. Today was a perfect day to visit Alton Towers, the sun was shining and the park was quiet so there were no queues for the rides!

We had a lovely afternoon at Alton Towers. To be honest we didn't go on many rides we simply enjoyed a walk around the grounds and had lunch. How lazy is that! It does mean though that we can recommend the fish and chips (near Nemesis), the donuts (near The Flume) and the
hot dogs (near The Towers Restaurant). Not that we like our food much!

Hope you like the pictures that we took. The gardens are spectacular at this time of year.
