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.
Star Gazing Pods On Display
Saturday 18th August 2018
The new star gazing pods have been delivered to Alton Towers overnight and have been put up for display on the lawns opposite the towers. Secluded to open in 2019 the new accommodation looks set to be the cheapest available. Stripped back down to the basics all you get is a bed, power and a heater by the looks of it. All toilets and showers are in a facilities block in the corner of the village made up of star gazing pods.
More information can be found at the website for the new accommodation.
Alton Towers Stargazing Lodges
Friday 6th July 2018
Alton Towers have been granted permission to build more accommodation on the lawn area across the road from the Enchanted Village. The new 102 accommodation village looks to be themed around stargazing with some of the plans for the area having the words “Stargazing Lodges” written on them. The lodges look to be very basic with a large shower and toilet block being built down one end of the site.
With some of the hotels on site being closed for half of the year (Splash Landings), it seems very strange that Merlin keeps investing in accommodation instead of more new rides inside the park.
