February Half Term 2017

by MakoMania » Sat Sep 17, 2016 5:23 pm

Towersstreet are reporting on Facebook that February Half Term 2017 is being advertised on the information & queue time boards around the theme park!

The event did not happen in 2016 but is set to return from 17th-26th February 2017, which is a day longer than 2015's event :)

I'd just be careful with assuming we'll be getting a full February Half Term event for 2017. The dates have been on the information boards for a while now (At least since mid-July), and although it does confirm something is happening, what it doesn't say is exactly what.

The Resort had the February Half Term dates on their information boards this time last year too, and as we all know the event this year was all at the Resort hotels with the theme park not opening at all.

Of course, I, like the rest of us, would love to see the Theme Park February Half Term event return next year as I did miss it, however I'd be wary of jumping to the conclusion it is definitely happening just because the dates are displayed on the information boards.

Very true. However they did originally intend to open rides this past Feb Half Term whilst it was being advertised on park in 2015.

I guess we'll have to wait and see!

Alton Towers have now added details to their website about the 2017 February Half Term event. The event will actually span a fortnight, presumably to cover the different Half Term dates for different schools, and be based at the hotels whilst revolving around the theme of pirates and princesses as per this year.
