Alton Towers

New for 2021, Lightopia - Europes longest light and lantern trial! Navigating your way around the Mutiny Bay, Katanayana Kanyon, Forbidden Valley and back through Haunted Hallow and then the gardens. You will be amazed at all of the lights, models and decorations!   Covering 2km the trail is stunning. This attraction is a paid upcharge costing £20 per person / £15 with Annual Pass discount.  Lightopia takes you through the 4 seasons, transforming each area differently. We loved Lightopia - all of the lights and models looked amazing, however during our visit to the park, the heavens opened and with the experience being all outside, there wasn't many places to take cover from the rain. With the experience covering such a huge space, time slots are required to space out guests and make sure it's not too busy. At the end of Lightopia on the lake is a huge water show, projecting onto a water screen with music in the background the water show shows animations of Christmas trees, Father Christmas and other cool effects. Lightopia is great and we cant wait to see if it comes back in future years and if the park can manage to expand on it.
