THRILL-SEEKERS are expected to return in their hordes to Alton Towers tomorrow (July 4), when the theme park opens up its rides to visitors for the first time this year.

The gardens re-opened last month but the outdoor rides remained on hold because of lockdown measures combating the spread of Covid-19.

There are restrictions on the number of families allowed into the park each day as the threat from the pandemic continues, and strict social distancing measures will be in place.

The hotels and other accommodation is also re-opening to visitors.

Emma Catterall, divisional director at Alton Towers, said: "We can't wait to get back to doing what we do best, and we're working hard to make sure that we're implementing the new hygiene and distancing measures in a way that will still allow our guests to enjoy a memorable, fun visit to Alton Towers Resort."

Measures to keep everyone safe include:

* All guests to pre-book tickets online in advance of their visit to enable capacity control;

* Employees and guests will be asked to participate in a temperature check using a non-touch thermometer;

* Guests over the age of six will be asked to wear face coverings or masks on some rides;

Enhanced cleaning, hygiene stations and additional hand sanitiser at key locations;

* The provision of spatial separation markings and other similar operating adjustments around the attraction, with the inclusion of all rides;
