Breakfast With Santa at Alton Towers Hotel

One of our favourite Christmas traditions is visiting Alton Towers each year for Santa’s Sleepover. This is a tradition that we have enjoyed for about 11 years now and over those years we have seen the special event change and evolve with new activities added each year. This year we enjoyed a breakfast with Santa for the first time.

Scarefest At Alton Towers 2017

Last weekend we headed down towards Stoke for our October visit to Alton Towers to celebrate Scarefest. We have been going every year for as long as I can remember and each year it gets bigger and better. Now that we have little J we have to divide our time between the main park and CBeebies land however based on his no fear attitude when it comes to rides it wont be long before he will be wanting to get on the thrill rides!

Our Sunday Photo - 15/10/2017

Yesterday we spent the day at Alton Towers for their annual Scarefest event. We have been going every year for as long as I can remember. It's such a great day and it's the first time all season you can experience the rides in the dark. I will pop a full post on soon about all the scary things you can get up to but for now here's our Sunday photo.

Little J's Pre School Days - December

Little J spent most of December counting down the days till Christmas. He was so excited and just couldn't wait till Christmas Day. This was the first year that he understood what it was all about and how it's a magical time of year. The month seemed to whizz by but for little J it probably dragged and it must have seemed an eternity waiting for Santa to come.

We started the month off with Little J being a Shepherd in his Nursery Nativity. He was amazing as was all the children. I had tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat as I watched him sing and dance along with his friends.

Sneak Preview At Alton Towers Rollercoaster Restaurant

On Saturday to celebrate our birthdays we went to Alton Towers. Whilst walking over to the new ride Galactica there was a buzz in the air around the new Rollercoaster Restaurant. There were a lot of people hanging around the entrance and because I am very nosey I headed over to take a peek.  I knew it wasn't opening till 13th May so I assumed it must have been a preview event.

Alton Towers Rollercoaster Restaurant

As you already know we are massive fans of Alton Towers. We are Merlin Pass Holders so are regulars at the theme park each year and it is very special to us as Daddy proposed to me there. We are always looking out for news and gossip about any new rides and attractions. I have to say I was a little shocked when I recently read the headline online 'Alton Towers to open a Rollercoaster Restaurant.

#TheSmiler Crash At Alton Towers

I think it's pretty obvious if you read my blog regularly that we are big fans of Alton Towers. I have been going there since before Nemesis opened and this year its celebrating its 21st birthday. It's also a special place for us as it's where Daddy proposed to me.

I was really upset and shocked yesterday to hear that there was a crash on The Smiler. I am a huge fan of rollercoasters but there is something about that ride that I just don't like. I have been on it twice this year but after the last time which was less than two weeks ago I said to Daddy I probably won't go on it again.

The Waterpark At Alton Towers Resort

Last weekend we visited the Alton Towers Resort. We had been invited to a special In The Night Garden Party but we decided to arrive a few days earlier and enjoy some family time together. We stayed at the Alton Towers Hotel but when we arrived our room wasn't ready even though check in time is 3pm and it was later so we decided to head to the Waterpark.

The Alton Towers Hotel

I wasn't going to blog about our recent visit to Alton Towers as I have blogged so many times already about Alton Towers but we did so much over the three days we were there so I wanted to give it a mention. We only decided to stay over very last minute and we managed to get a really good deal on the Alton Towers Hotel. We originally booked for just Saturday but later extended it to Friday and Saturday.

In The Night Garden Party At Alton Towers

A few weeks ago little J got his first ever birthday party invite. It was so exciting as it was to celebrate the first anniversary of the In The Night Garden Boat Ride in CBeebies Land at Alton Towers.

Octonauts Arrive At CBeebies Land

Alton Towers is a special place for us, we try to go many times a year especially on special occasions. To celebrate little J's birthday we took him to CBeebies land in Alton Towers. The Octonauts have arrived this year so it was a perfect chance for us to try out the new rollercoaster.

Alton Towers for Big J's Birthday

Every year we always take Big J to Alton Towers to help celebrate his birthday. We always have a great time and both of big J's uncles come too so its always special.

We arrived really early and the theme park was empty so big J and daddy rushed to the nearest ride.

Sonic Spinball.

Big J loves this ride.

Me and little J sat on the grass and enjoyed the peace for a little while.

It wasn't long before we were joined by a visitor who was looking for some of little J's raisins. It came really close to us and was hissing. It had huge teeth and they looked really sharp. I packed up our stuff and ran :)

Big J decided that it was time for him to be brave and try a new ride. He has never been on Rita Queen of Speed so he wanted to try it. Daddy bought them both a fast pass for the ride and Uncle P did too.]

He was nervous in the queue and as they got nearer the front I thought he would change his mind but he didn't. He went on it and loved it

 As a treat for being brave and trying out a new ride he got a 'I survived Rita Queen of Speed' Trophy and Medal.
Alton Towers wasn't very busy so we managed to get on lots of rides. My favourite is the Runaway Mine Train. #choochoo

We took little J on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ride. He wasn't sure at first. the queue is quite dark and the big screen plays a video of Mr Willy Wonka and is quite loud.

 Big brother J was there too incase he got scared but he really liked it. First you go on a boat ride along a chocolate river. Its not really chocolate although big J is convinced it is...I wouldn't try it.

After Charlie Daddy, Big J, Uncle K, Uncle P and J all went on the twirling toadstools. For me its the scariest ride in the park. Its just metal swings but they go really high.

Then it was over to Blade and Air. Big J with uncle K and J

 Before it was time to go home we had a quick try of some games. You had to throw a ball into a coloured glass to win. If it lands in a normal glass its no prize but if it landed in a red one you got a small prize, a blue one for medium and gold for large. Big J went first he had two balls and managed to get it in a red :) then daddy had two balls and got it in a blue and I had two and got one in a red and one so close to the gold.

 Our three teddies we won

On our way out we bumped into a big blue Sonic the Hedgehog
