This is a collaborative post with Alton Towers.
Honestly don’t know how I have an eleven year old already. I’m getting to that age where I’m starting to realise I am getting older, slightly more responsible and certainly no wiser then I was at eighteen.
Eighteen. The year I got pregnant and didn’t have a clue what to expect for the rest of my life. Parents who disapproved, a partner who was still fairly new, no job and no idea what the hell I was doing.
Fast forward 12 years and here I am, thirty years old, married, a decent job, a successful blog, two beautiful children, a new exciting project and all the fur babies you can shake your hoover at.
We decided that eleven would be a good year to introduce my daughter, Lucy to Alton Towers. She’d mentioned it a few times so I reached out to Alton Towers and they kindly agreed to provide us with fast pass tickets for out visit to the theme park.
Her birthday is November so we were lucky to attend during the Halloween week, known as #Scarefest to many of you. I’ve been so many times in the past but never during this week so I was more excited then Lucy to be fair.
As we arrived there were people all in the spirit of things, dressed up in fantastic costumes and dancing away to the usual spooky tunes you hear at the time of year.
We managed to get Lucy and her friend on a couple of the bigger rides which was great. They did prefer the smaller ones overall though so maybe they aren’t quite ready for the proper ones just yet.
All in all the day was fantastic, the weather was decent considering its verging on Winter and the girls had a brilliant day exploring Alton Towers and the gardens.
Have you taken your kids to Alton Towers yet? How did you get on?
