Alton Towers Resort & What To Expect In 2024!

Alton Towers Resort is set to welcome guests back this March for another thrilliant season of fun, thrills and laughter at the UK’s most magical escape.

From the return of a much loved classic dark ride (we’re talking about HEX of course) to some returning, fan favourite seasonal events, character meet & greets and even the launch of BRAND NEW VIP packages, Alton Towers Resort is certainly stepping things up a gear where bringing the magic back is concerned,

In the following article we’ll cover EVERYTHING you need to know about what to expect when visiting the park this year and will take a closer look at what each new and returning addition has to offer.

Alton Towers Resort is officially set to welcome visitors back from March 16th, so you really don’t have too much longer to wait.

Alton Towers Resort is set to welcome guests back for another season of thrilliant fun & thrills from March 16th 2024.

10 Years Of Cbeebies Land.

2024 is set to mark 10 years since the resort’s much loved family IP land- Cbeebies Land first opened it’s colourful gates to the public.

The popular BBC based area features rides and attractions all centered around popular Cbeebies characters and TV shows and has continued wow younger guests since it first opened in 2014.

In 2024 Alton Towers Resort are set to mark the occasion in style by introducing brand new additions which are said to be announced in the coming weeks.

Alongside this children and families visiting the resort will continue to have the chance to get up close and personal with some of their favourite CBeebies characters such as Duggee, the Teletubbies and more.

Families also have the chance to check out last year’s three new attractions – Hey Duggee Big Adventure Badge, Andy’s Adventures Dinosaur Dig, and JoJo & Gran Gran At Home.

Fan Favourite Events Return For 2024!

Alongside 10 years of Cbeebies Land 2024 is also set to welcome back an action packed line up of fan favourite seasonal events.

From the foot stomping, stein swigging festivities of Oktoberfest to the spooktacular, spine chilling frights and thrills of Scarefest Alton Towers Resort is set to bring the fun in a full range of different forms this year.

Oktoberfest (7th – 29th September), Scarefest (11th October – 3rd November), Fireworks (8th – 10th November) and Christmas (selected dates from 22nd November – 31st December) have all been confirmed to be returning for the resort’s upcoming season, however Mardi Gras appears to have been dropped from this year’s line up (not really a bad thing in our opinion).

Fireworks also return this year too lighting up the night skies in a dazzling display of colourful bangs, flashes and whizzes.

Alongside Christmas is set to return for 2024 too, however given Alton Towers’ poor offering in 2023 we are hoping to see the introduction of a much bigger and better offering this year.

Alongside events Alton Towers Resort have also announced the introduction of brand new street theatre at the resort too.

Character Meet & Greets.

Throughout this season families and younger guests will have the chance to get up close and personal with some of their favourite Alton Towers characters including the iconic Alton Bear!

From pop up appearances across the park to newly introduced street theatre with The Pirates of Mutiny Bay families visiting the park will be able to join in with the fun and make their own thrilliant memories.

New for 2024 guests staying overnight at The Alton Towers Hotel and The Splash Landings Hotel will even have the chance to experience character appearances whilst chowing down on some much needed breakfast!

Overall, 2024 will offer those visiting Alton Towers Resort even more chances than ever before to meet their favourite resort icons in a whole host of different settings throughout the year.

Which character are you most looking forward to meeting this year?

2024 brings guests more chances than ever before to get up close and personal with their favourite resort characters.

HEX is BACK For 2024!

Yes, we know, we’ve already covered this in a separate article however we couldn’t put together a ‘what to expect from Alton Towers Resort in 2024’ article without mentioning the return of HEX!

After over 12 months of closure due to what we believe to be technical issues the resort’s iconic Vekoma madhouse is set to return this year (from opening day we believe?).

Alongside HEX, 2024 is also set to see the return of another iconic ride with Nemesis Reborn (aka. Nemesis), however to date no exact opening date has yet been set.

As well as HEX and Nemesis there’s no denying we also hope to see Alton Towers Resort’s Sky Ride return too, but no official announcement has yet been made whether or not this is something we can expect to see from opening.

Overall, 2024 marks the start of the long road back to the resort’s former magic and with the removal of The Retrosquad (yayy!!) and the impending arrival of new, permanent additions in the not too distant future it’s fair to say that the park is steering itself back in the right direction from here on.

HEX: The Legend of the Towers has been confirmed to be returning for the resort's upcoming 2024 season.

Alton After Dark (NEW For 2024).

First up in the list of NEW for 2024 additions to Alton Towers is Alton After Dark – something fans of the park have been clamoring for for quite some time.

Alton After Dark is set to offer guests the chance to experience the park’s iconic rides and attractions after nightfall for the first time outside of the normal extended event opening hours.

The new addition kicks off on Saturday March 16th during the first THREE weekends of the park’s season by giving guests the chance to ride the park’s rides and roller coasters up until 8PM in the evening.

Dates to enjoy Alton After Dark are current set at Saturday 16th, 23rd and 30th March, however we hope to see more dates introduced as the season progresses and the darker nights set in later in the year.

Rides such as Wicker Man, Oblivion, Th13teen and The Smiler are all absolute MUSTS after nightfall believe us!

NEW For 2024 guests visiting the park have chance to experience their favourite rides and roller coasters after nightfall with Alton After Dark!

What Else Will 2024 Bring?

So, that’s EVERYTHING we know so far about what we can expect from Alton Towers Resort’s 2024 season, but what else could we expect this year?

Well, as mentioned previously Nemesis is also set to reopen at some point this Spring and as such the ride will mark 30 years with the park this year.

It’s safe to say Alton Towers will certainly have something up their sleeves where marking the occasion is concerned and when you look back at the marketing of the ride’s rebirth so far it’s safe to say we can probably expect celebrations to be substantial.

As mentioned previously though no date for the ride’s reopening has yet been set, but we definitely expect it to be sooner rather than later given current progress and rumours the park are aiming for opening day.

We will however keep you all up to date when it comes to the latest Nemesis Reborn news and as such we advise you keep yours eyes peeled here on TPI in the weeks ahead.

Which NEW for 2024 addition are you most excited for? Will you be taking advantage of the newly introduced track walks? And do you plan to become an Alton Towers Resort VIP for the day?
