Alton Towers Voucher Codes December 2014
Alton Towers is the most-visited theme park in the UK, attracting nearly three million visitors each year. Many of these visitors take advantage of reduced-price entry by using Alton Towers discount vouchers. Besides the theme park, Alton Towers also hosts several hotels, a water park and a golf course among its attractions.
The real Alton Towers is in fact an ancient country house which lies in semi-ruin. The gardens surrounding Alton Towers were first opened to the public in the 1800s, but were sadly abandoned before WWII. They were then reopened in the 1960s, when visitors were able to enjoy the boating lake and a small fair.
It wasn't until the 1980s that Alton Towers began to develop into the theme park that we know and love today. The 1980s saw the opening of iconic Alton Towers' roller-coasters such as The Corkscrew and The Black Hole. As the popularity of the park grew, it began to offer annual passes to regular visitors. Some Alton Towers discount codes on this website can offer generous reductions on these passes.
Visitors using a discount voucher at Alton Towers can enter the park by taking a futuristic monorail from the more distant car parks. Once inside, visitors can get around the park on the Skyride, a cable car which connects the different themed areas of the park.
Each themed area caters to different age groups, with rides and attractions to suit. For example, areas such as the Forbidden Forest and the X-Sector both feature ‘white-knuckle' rides such as Oblivion and Nemesis. As such, these areas are most popular with teenagers and adults. On the other hand, the pirate-themed ‘Mutiny Bay' is more suited to families.
