This proved to be a popular event as clients often need to choose between work and family life and it is rare that the two can be enjoyed together. This event is unique to the group as they benefited from gold passes (allowing queue jump), early access to the park, personalised welcome packs and magic money to be used by the children on site. The group were able to stay in Alton Towers Theme Park past closing time and had exclusive use of the Sea Life Centre for a pre dinner drinks reception. Children helped feed the sea life while their parents enjoyed a glass of bubbles.The group are then treated to a three course BBQ menu in the Towers.
This year we are giving each family the option of Splash Landings or Alton Towers for a second day and the families are getting to stay in the new Enchanted Forest Lodges!
