Alton Towers Scarefest entrance

Alton Towers has confirmed that its popular fireworks event will return for the 2010 season, taking place on November 5, 6 and 7.

The Ultimate Fireworks Event will be the first to take place at the park since 2006's Electric Towers, and will see the park extend its opening hours until 9pm. The Alton Towers gothic mansion itself will provide the backdrop to the fireworks displays, which will the mark 30th anniversary of the theme park's opening.

The fireworks event will be the grand finale of Alton Towers' 2010 season, coming shortly after the annual Halloween Scarefest event. It is not yet clear whether the fireworks will return on annual basis, or whether they are a one-off special in light of the 30th anniversary celebrations.

Previous fireworks events have been problematic for Alton Towers, which faces consistent complaints over noise from local residents. The park's idyllic location has also forced it to keep its major rollercoasters below tree level and take measures to limit noise from its attractions propagating beyond the park's walls.
