Cast your minds back to 1973 – remember Police Sergeant Neil Howie (aka Edward Woodward) went on a mission to find a missing girl on a remote Scottish Island Village, with Lord Summerisle (aka Christopher Lee) and the strange townsfolk claiming she never existed, only for him never to return home… We’re talking about the horror classic The Wicker Man of course.

Alton Towers have taken the story and brought it into the present with their brand-new rollercoaster The Wicker Man, made entirely out of wood! It’s the UK’s first new wooden rollercoaster built in over 20 years so it truly is a globally unique experience.

To celebrate the launch, Alton Towers invited guests to an exclusive VIP experience and overnight stay at the theme park, with access to the awesome hotel water park and fast track wristbands to skip the queues on park! All of this plus exclusive access to the new ride the night of with food, drink, entertainment and a live DJ slot with Roman Kemp.

Big thanks to our theme park loving, adrenaline junkie guests – Rag N Bone Man, Coronation Street’s Lucy Fallon and Mikey North, Sophie Ellis Bextor & Richard Jones, Strictly champion Joe McFadden, Matt Terry, Tamzin Outhwaite, Kieron Richardson and more.
