Alton Towers

Guides, opinions...everything Alton Towers


  • Well we went to Alton Towers with my son who uses a power wheelchair. We had huge difficulty in the "wheelchair accessible" toilet - no room to move when you need a carer, and I don't think you would fit a manual wheelchair to the side of the toilet for transfers. as for rides, unless you can transfer from the wheelchair, the only ride you can access is the skyride. My teenage son was in tears by the time we left.
    The gardens and grounds are great if thats what you want, not exactly what a teenage boy wanted, but it is accessible, best with a power chair - but as its quite hilly this would be much harder for someone in a manual chair.
    We certainly will not be going again.
