Alton Towers Theme Park reopens for the 2024 season on Saturday 16th March 2024, the park has also officially confirmed that this is also the date that Nemesis Reborn opens to the general public. In addition to this, a new event for 2024 “Alton Towers After Dark” will take place on Saturday 16th, 23rd and 30th March!

The iconic Nemesis rollercoaster shut down in November 2022 for a revamp, with the entire 250-tonne, 716-metre-long track being replaced in what is the ‘biggest overhaul in its 30-year history’. But bosses at the theme park are now teasing the return of the ride and have shared striking video footage of it, along with its new name and logo – Nemesis Reborn.

Stay at Alton Towers Resort

If you can afford to then it is well worth taking the opportunity to stay on site as after a long day in the park it is only a short walk back to your accommodation. It really adds to the experience and you can spend a second day relaxing at the onsite Alton Towers Waterpark before the drive home. Due to the scale of the park, it is well worth planning your visit in advance.

Plan Ahead

Thanks to the internet it is easy to plan ahead. I would recommend viewing the Alton Towers Park Map online. You can also view the Ride Height Restrictions. Alton Towers offers a good mixture of rides and attractions to entertain all of the family. Use the map and other information available on the Alton Towers website to get an idea of which rides and attractions you would like to do. This information will help you to establish which sections of the theme park you need to visit. Bear in mind that the different sections are very spread out with lots of walking between each one. It is worth making use of the Skyride as this can avoid lots of walking on hilly and uneven pathways. Ensure that you wear comfortable shoes suitable for lots of walking.
