Win! A family ticket to Alton Towers Resort

We've teamed up with Alton Towers Resort to offer two lucky users the chance to win a family ticket to the theme park.

This year, Alton Towers Resort launches its biggest ever rollercoaster – The Smiler. The all-knowing controlling force is committed to ensuring you smile. Always. The coaster is set to provide an experience like no other. It will marmalise your body and mind, combining intense physical effects from plunging drops and extreme turns with twisted psychological effects.

The Smiler features five mind manipulations: The Inoculator, The Tickler, The Flasher, The Giggler and The Hypnotiser to provide a complete physical and mental assault on riders. Featuring plunging drops of 30m, a ride time of 165 seconds and a track length three times the length of Oblivion, it's set to be an intense addition to the line-up of adrenalin pumping rides.


With over 50 rides and attractions, the Alton Towers Resort is one of Britain's most exciting attractions. Adrenalin-pumping coasters include the iconic Nemesis and Oblivion, Rita, TH13TEEN and Air. For those after gentler thrills, Ice Age the 4D Experience is back for its second year with an exhilarating variety of physical effects including icy blasts, snow and bubbles. Fans will also have the opportunity to meet both Sid and Scrat around the Alton Towers Resort.

And if you want to extend your visit, you can book a room at one of the two Resort hotels. The Alton Towers and Splash Landings Hotels are a great way to escape into a whole new adventure. The Moon Voyage bedrooms in the private wing of the Alton Towers Hotel are new for 2013. You can discover a whole new world, where Sir Algenon and his family board their spaceship to embark on exciting adventures and travel across new lands!
