Alton Towers will host a special Spy Weekend on February 3-4, 2012, featuring a range of challenges designed to test the deductive powers of young sleuths.
The Spy Weekend will be hosted in the Alton Towers Hotel, with the theme park itself remaining closed until the February half term week (February 11-19). A number of activity zones will be set up around the hotel, with guests challenged to collect clues and meet with "agents" in order to solve a mystery.
Among the activities are a code-breaking exercise, a laser maze, and a tutorial on using spy gadgets such as covert cameras, surveillance devices and bugs. Guests will also be able to visit the Alton Towers Water Park during the weekend.
Alton Towers is offering short break packages for budding spies who would like to experience the Spy Weekend. These include a 2 night stay at the Alton Towers Hotel, breakfast, and the spy activities. Discounted breaks to Alton Towers can currently be purchased through Play and Stay via Theme Park Tourist's short breaks pages.
