Alton Towers Opening 12th April With Three NEW Retro Flat Rides

UK theme park fans are now only hours away from the opening of Alton Towers and news has recently emerged that Alton Towers have leased three fairground flat rides to add to the park for the 2021 season.

Marketed as the ‘Retro Squad’, Alton Towers has released an 80s style video on YouTube to advertise the new 80s inspired additions:

Funk’n’Fly will take guests on a spinning flight similar to that of a Super Trooper Ride. It will be located in Forbidden Valley near to Nemesis.

Mixtape is set to bounce guests up and down and then down and up giving lots of laughs and is situated in X Sector near to Oblivion.

Roller Disco is similar to a Tilt-A-Whirl Waltzer but faster where guests are set to slide and spin round and round and is located in the Dark Forest.

Those guests heading to Alton Towers this season can look forward to visiting the ‘World of David Walliams’ which opens 17th May and experiencing the new ‘Gangsta Granny: The Ride.

Starting 12th April the self contained Woodland Lodges will be available to book with the Resort Hotels opening on 17th May along with the Water Park. For further details on booking and reserving tickets and to book a short break visit Alton Towers Website.
