A Wicker Man Winter

Alton Towers Resort Winter Close

Following its much-anticipated launch in Spring 2018, Wicker Man successfully ignited a passion for rollercoasters amongst thousands of young guests and attracted people from across the globe. Wicker Man was even voted guests’ favourite Alton Towers Resort Ride in 2018!

Over the closed winter season, Wicker Man, like the other rides and attractions, is getting its annual checks ahead of it re-opening for guests to enjoy later this year. But how do you check a rollercoaster and what is involved?

Well Wicker Man is the first wooden rollercoaster (or ‘woodie’) at Alton Towers Resort so there’s a few bits of extra work that need undertaking. In their new Winter Series, we get a behind-the-scenes look at Wicker Man and its first winter at Alton Towers Resort. Watch the first video in the series below showing the first of the closed season checks – there’s plenty more work to be done so stay tuned!
