Alton Towers Fireworks: Everything you Need to Know

As if Alton Tower’s theme park isn’t reason enough to visit. On the closest weekend to Fireworks Night each year, the park puts on a firework spectacular that is fast becoming one of the nation’s favourites. During the three-day fireworks display celebration, visitors to the park can enjoy extended time using the theme park rides after the sun sets for a whole new experience.

The park is open late on the weekend in question, allowing adults and children of all ages an extended stay in the park to view these magnificent pyrotechnics. Visitors can enjoy three whole days of fireworks and Bonfire Night events, giving Alton Towers open season the send-off it deserves.
