A Winning Trip To Alton Towers

Happy Spring everyone! It was a lucky start to last week as I won a free ticket to Alton Towers. Moments after winning, my brother received an email telling him that he had won two tickets to be the first to ride the new ride Galactica before its opening day, which is officially the 24th March. So last weekend was our unexpected and winning day trip to Alton Towers.

My mum, two brothers and I got to the park early so we could collect our tickets and good lord was it freezing! We could have done with some sun but overall we didn't have a too bad day. We managed to get on a few rides, not many as we were waiting for the preview, so that my brothers could experience their competition win Galactica.



I was so cold that I didn't manage to take many photographs, but as always I couldn't resist to take a photograph of the beautiful Towers hidden behind the trees. Along with a few photos of the roller coaster tracks also hidden beneath the trees. But after a sit down at the parks new 'Coffee Lounge' with a Starbucks hot chocolate, we managed to regain our warmth and get moving around the park.  

Whilst waiting for my brothers who were allowed past the barriers towards Galactica, I could peer through and see the theming of the new and improved ride. The theming looks great, as a huge portal like shape is placed around a section of the track, allowing the riders to zoom through the lit up portal. It would look amazing at night! I shall have to wait until my next visit to give it ago.


My legs have been aching after twisting around in the air and walking to and from different sections of the park. So for our next trip I'll definitely need to work on some fitness beforehand!

  3. Altona Towers sounds really fun, I think I would love to go somewhere like that. That's so lucky that you got a free ticket as well! I feel like when you get things for free it always makes an experience that much better.
