The Alton Towers Resort has just started a new offer that works out at the best prices I have seen for this summer - so much for that last offer being the best ever prices! This offer is based on a short break with an overnight stay in one of the onsite hotels, two days entry to the theme park, free breakfast, and a free evening meal for the kids! And the prices are from as low as £175 for a family of four, which works out at just under £44 per person! That's incredible value.
Here's everything you get included:
- one night overnight hotel accommodation
- 2 day's theme park entry (one free child per paying adult)
- early entry to the park on both days (one hour before opening)
- free breakfast
- free evening meal for the children
- free parking (saving £6 per day)
- free entertainment
The prices do vary according to the date and which hotel you choose. The cheapest deal I could find was the one pictured below for £175 for a family of four, but go a couple of days earlier and the price only increases to £200. Even around the bank holiday there were some deals for less than £250!
I went with my family a couple of week ago and we could not believe how quiet the park was. In the middle of July we expected big queues, but as you may have seen in the press the park was nearly deserted. We didn't have to queue for one ride. The park has been such a drop in visitor numbers because of the recent Smiler incident, but if you are taking small children and spending your day in CBeebies Land then big rides are not going to be a concern for you.
This really is amazing value, and depending on the ages of your children you can get the best deals at the beginning of September as the schools go back in England.
The Kids Stay, Play and Eat Free offer has to be booked by 9th August, and it's for stays before 7th September at the Alton Towers Hotel and Splash Landings Hotel.
