Located in Staffordshire, England, Alton Towers is one of the most visited theme parks in the UK. It’s not hard to see why. The park’s thirteen themed areas provide fun for the whole family.

Thrill-seekers can ride one of the many roller coasters including Oblivion, the world’s first vertical-drop coaster and Nemesis, Europe’s first inverted coaster. New this year is The Smiler, the world’s first fourteen looping coaster complete with optical illusions and blinding lights.

The park also has many attractions for children and the entire family such as The Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Ride and the Sharkbait Reef attraction.
