  • Alton towers Splash landings Hotel. Brilliant hotel for kids. Gaming room downstairs and lots to do. Hotel rooms very warm due to the swimming pool,each room supplied with a fan which is needed. Walking distance to each of the Alton towers hotels and to the monorail to get to the park itself. Overall good experience.
  • Now I know its Alton towers but I think its more hype.....Thorpe Park may be smaller but it has the same amount of big rides there. I remember going there when I was much younger and my memories from then are much better than when we went now. Not sure why.......of course, going to the kiddie side was not an option as my kids are grown up but regardless, I don't see us going there again in a hurry as the kids weren't impressed enough for us to do the three hour journey again. Its a nice theme park but that's about it.
