Alton Towers Dungeon admission price is £7.50

The Dungeons, Merlin Entertainments

Admission to the new Alton Towers Dungeon will cost £7.50 on top of theme park admission, it has been confirmed.

The new attraction, opening on 23 March this year, replaces the former Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ride.

Admission can be purchased for £5 when booked in advance online, with 15-minute time slots bookable from 10 am.

A ticket combining theme park entry and Dungeon admission is available for £38 when booked in advance.

Annual and Season Pass access

Holders of both Merlin Entertainments’ ‘Standard’ and ‘Premium’ Annual Passes will not be exempt from the charge.

The new Premium Alton Towers Season Pass will allow for one Dungeon entry per theme park visit. It has launched this season with a £70 purchase price.

The Alton Towers Dungeon is described as a “hilariously hideous journey through Staffordshire’s darkest moments in history” and is recommended for ages 10 and over.

It is not known what scenes will feature beyond the standard themes of Merlin’s other Dungeon attractions worldwide.

It is also unclear if any rides will feature within the attraction, as is the case at the London and Edinburgh Dungeons, among others.
