For 2007, Alton Towers is going ‘Dung-Ho’ with the
opening of an adventure playground for younger children themed around
the peculiarly British, and eternally fascinating, topic of ‘dung’.
‘There’s something in the Dung Heap’ features everything you’d expect
from a ‘dung’ experience and more. Interactive play areas include a
Spider ‘Springy Cobweb Climbing zone’, a ‘Creepy Crawly Basharound’,
Toxic Bog ‘Toadstool Boingupons’ and a Mushroom maze! Kids can also join
in the Bug Chorus in the Soil Albug Hall, zip along on a silken zip
wire, spring across a bog and even become a conductor in the trash can
symphony, while parents watch from the trunk of a beanstalk.
