The package includes an overnight stay in a Stargazing Pod, which has space for two adults and two children, plus free parking.

You’ll get a delicious breakfast in the morning, before heading out to enjoy all the fun at Alton Towers.

Theme park tickets are not included in this package – you can add this on as an upgrade when you book – but you do get access to the 9-hole Extraordinary Golf for free.

There’s also Mardi Gras-themed entertainment throughout the day, including parades.

But you’ll have to hurry though as the cheapest prices are only available on certain days in June: 7th, 8th, 9th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, and 19th.

Alton Towers launched its carnival-inspired event for the first time when it reopened last year.

On top of the parades, there’s music and dancing throughout the day.
