Transcript from the Show (Partial)
G’day Everyone, Matt Elder of Family Bricks here and in this video, we are going to do a full tour of Alton Towers Resort England UK in about 10 minutes. This was filmed mid October 2020 during their Scarefest setup, so will also cover off what Alton Towers Resort England UK is like now with covid 19 measures in place? Is it worth going and what is the experience like etc.? We will cover this in the video and give our thoughts and first-hand experience as a family.
This video is bought to you bay Macatsim Holiday Homes in Margate and Broadstairs. Great for a week’s holiday or a weekend escape, being just over an hour east of London, UK. Treat yourself to amazing sunsets, a LEGO wall or great food. Visit www.macatsim.com and mention this Youtube video, we’ll will look after you.
Is Altons Towers Worth a Visit?
This is a real “it depends£” type of answer. We had Merlin Passes so price wise we didn’t “feel” it as much – click around the video for a playlist of other Merlin Attraction reviews we’ve visited with our passes. It did feel like there were a lot of extras, 3 Mazes – extra, Darkest Depths – extra, Waterpark – Extra, Alton Towers Dungeons – Extra. If you were paying that ontop of park access, you’d really feel it.
The loss of the monorail and sky ride middle station access restrictions makes getting around a huge park just that more difficult. For mine, that is something they really need to sort out.
That said, having the park set around a castle like Alton Towers is pretty unique. The Halloween Scarefest and the night atmosphere was great. If rollercoasters are your thing, you’ll enjoy this park. There is a huge variety of attractions and lots of garden trails to explore. Be prepared for lots of walking however.
We are glad we have done it and enjoyed our time, but being that distance from London, it is way down the list of places to revisit. If we lived locally and had a Merlin Pass, then definitely would repeatedly visit.
