Stargazing Pods Christmas Update
Saturday 22nd December 2018
Work on the star gazing pods is progressing nicely at Alton Towers, more pods have been installed since our last visit along with grass starting to be put down alongside some of the pods. Lighting poles have also started to be installed around the camp site. With no toilets in the pods the toilet block is the only place to shower and use the toilet, the roof of the facilities building has started to go up with tiles waiting on the ground.
One thing thats been installed or moved since we last visited the park is a time lapse camera. We don’t remember seeing once in the past but we expect footage from this will be used on the parks social media channels.
Stargazing Pods Installation Begins
Friday 2nd November 2018
Stargazing Pods have started to be installed over at the Stargazing Accommodation center. Directly next to the Enchanted Village this new accommodation will be the cheapest in the Alton Towers Complex. Identical to the pods installed inside the park these rooms are stripped back and have no toilets or showers. All toilets and showers can be found in the facilities building being built down one end of the site.
The more premium pods with a roof light hatch are yet to be seen.

Saturday 29th September 2018

Stargazing Construction Beings
Wednesday 12th September 2018
Construction on the new accommodation at Alton Towers has begun. The Stargazing Lodges, opening in 2019, are set to be the parks cheapest accommodation. Containing just beds and power, the accommodation is very basic. All toilets and washing facility are contained in one central building.
Work on the bases for each lodge has start along with site preparation, and down the far end of the site construction on the facilities building has begun. Over the next few weeks we expect more lodges to be delivered to site and installed once the foundations are done. Cable runs for each lodge are already appearing, along with service cabinets on site ready to be installed.
