Star Gazing Pods On Display
Saturday 18th August 2018
The new star gazing pods have been delivered to Alton Towers overnight and have been put up for display on the lawns opposite the towers. Secluded to open in 2019 the new accommodation looks set to be the cheapest available. Stripped back down to the basics all you get is a bed, power and a heater by the looks of it. All toilets and showers are in a facilities block in the corner of the village made up of star gazing pods.
More information can be found at the website for the new accommodation.
Alton Towers Stargazing Lodges
Friday 6th July 2018
Alton Towers have been granted permission to build more accommodation on the lawn area across the road from the Enchanted Village. The new 102 accommodation village looks to be themed around stargazing with some of the plans for the area having the words “Stargazing Lodges” written on them. The lodges look to be very basic with a large shower and toilet block being built down one end of the site.
With some of the hotels on site being closed for half of the year (Splash Landings), it seems very strange that Merlin keeps investing in accommodation instead of more new rides inside the park.
