Their new day event tickets wil be for the Festive Day Out with selected rides open to families as well as the Alton Towers Gardens Lights Walk.

The festive events will run from November 27 to December 23.

Chris Carter, Events and Entertainments Director at Alton Towers Resort, said said they made the announcement earlier than usual after many families had to cancel their Christmas celebrations last year.

They said: “For the first year ever, we are opening the Resort to welcome day guests for our exciting Lightopia and Towers Christmas Market, with selected rides and attractions.

“We will also see the return of our hugely popular overnight festive escape, Santa’s Sleepover. Christmas is all about bringing people together, which will be more poignant than ever and something we want to really tap into here at the Resort.”
