To help celebrate its 40th birthday this year, the Alton Towers Resort has teamed up with the best-selling children’s author to create the World of David Walliams, including Gangsta Granny: The Ride. Climb into your royal carriage as book characters Granny and Ben enlist your help to pull off the greatest jewel heist in history!

You can join in with the rollercoaster fun by entering our super competition. Our winning family of two adults and two children, aged 12 or under, will stay overnight in an Explorer Room at the Alton Towers Hotel with fabulous evening entertainment. You’ll enjoy a full English breakfast buffet the following morning, plus free parking.

This unique hotel is themed around the incredible explorer, Sir Algenon, who has made it his home, and there are plenty of fun and quirky features to discover throughout your stay at the hotel, including an amazing flying ship which has crash-landed in the middle of the resort.

Our terrific prize, also valid during school holidays*, includes Gold Fastrack Passes to reduce waiting time for rides and attractions.
