Alton Towers Smiler Ride
The Smiler undergoing a test run in 2014.
Slightly over a year after this photo was taken it all went horrifically wrong. Possibly the same carriage as well 🙁

Alton Towers is best known and loved for its great theme park, though this is just one part of the ever growing Resort that now includes two hotels, a spa, and some fabulous meeting and event facilities for business visitors and corporate events.
You don’t have to hold your meeting standing in the queue for Nemesis, as Alton Towers has numerous excellent corporate venues to choose from! And corporate doesn’t have to mean huge – venues range in size from a meeting room for 16 people to a 400 person dinner ceremony, or a 700 person conference; and those are just the indoor facilities. Another option is to use the grounds for a marquee that can accommodate up to 3,000 people, but why stop there? How about buying out the whole of the Alton Towers theme park for a day and inviting 15,000 people?!
As well as providing the great location, corporate packages can also be arranged. Whatever your business is your employees are bound to enjoy combining a conference with a day at the theme park, playing adventure golf, or enjoying the water park. Of course there are also hotels for delegates and employees to stay in here too.
Alton Towers Hotel
Themed on the exploits of Sir Algenon, the hotel combines luxurious touches with quirky oddities, offering themed rooms, a restaurant and bar, and the Alton Towers Spa where you can relax after a day of business dealings!
Splash Landings Hotel
Maybe better suited to those more informal corporate events, Splash Landings Hotel has a Caribbean theme and is dominated by the large, and lots of fun water park! You can even rent the water park for an evening and enjoy a beach party, or use it during the day for team building exercises with a difference! Both the AT Hotel and Splash Landings Hotel can be exclusively hired for the ultimate conference or hospitality event.
Corporate Christmas Parties
Many corporations are looking for the next great location to hold the all important Christmas Party, and the Alton Towers Resort doesn’t disappoint! For 2009, AT has arranged a fabulous Masquerade Ball. Tickets include a 4 course dinner, live entertainment and a disco, and tickets are from only £40 per person.
