Alton Towers Resort is gearing up for the ultimate escape this May half term as the Mardi Gras inspired takeover returns from 20th May. The carnival style celebration is set to dazzle with high energy entertainment, showstopping costumes and a fantabulous parade for the ultimate street party vibe.
The area around the lake will be transformed into Food Street as guests can experience a variety of different dishes from around the world. For a taste of the deep south, tuck into the gumbo stew with bell peppers, celery and onion, served with spiced white rice; visit the Louisiana hickory smoke train for a mouth-watering BBQ chargrilled beef burger served with hickory spiced barbecue sauce, Monteray Jack cheese and crispy bacon; or enjoy a Po’ Boy sandwich with scampi toasted in French bread with lettuce, tomato and cajun hot sauce mayonnaise.
Each morning of the event, a carnival King and Queen will be chosen from amongst the guests and crowned during a lavish masquerade ceremony on the Theme Park’s iconic Towers Street entrance. Once anointed, the King and Queen will be treated like VIPs for the entire day with an exclusive VIP package which will include platinum fastracks, food and retail vouchers, entry to the Alton Towers Dungeons, the best seats in the house for the live shows, plus so much more. Guests are encouraged to don lots of sparkles, beads, and colour, the brighter the better for the chance to be noticed and chosen.
Guests will also have the chance to ride the Resort’s thrilling world-class rollercoasters and experience the first-class family attractions.
Overnight guests will also get to enjoy even more exclusive live entertainment, food and drink into the evening, including limited edition Mardi Gras cocktails!
Tickets for the Theme Park start at £36pp and the Mardi Gras experience is included in the price of general admission.
Mardi Gras will take place from 20th May to 18th June.
