With rides named things like Nemesis and Oblivion you know that the roller coasters at Alton Towers will leave you with white knuckles and shaking knees - and that's why the kids can't get enough of it. It's not just about hair raising rides, there's plenty of fun for smaller people including the 'There's Something in the Dung Heap' Adventure Playground where youngsters can get mucky in the yucky farmyard. Or try the Haunted Hollow, a spooky short cut through Haunted Wood that will rival the ghost train. There's also a brand new 18 hole adventure golf course themed around the Park's rides and attractions. It's a great family day out where the kids will have an unforgetable adventure.
