Alton Towers has announced that it will open until 20:00 for its first three opening Saturdays in March.

‘Alton After Dark’, as it will be known, will be open for longer in the days of the 16, 23, and 30 March.

All of Alton Towers’ thrill rides will be opening for the event, including the eagerly anticipated rebirth of the suspended roller coaster, Nemesis Reborn.

It is a rare treat for fans of Alton Towers with the park usually saving its nighttime openings for its scarefest event during the Halloween period.
