THE Alton Towers Resort is offering you the chance to win the ultimate summer escape. Enjoy two action-packed days at the UK’s number one theme park, before you head back to splash around in the tropical waterpark and relax at one of the fantastical resort hotels. In total, the package is worth £500.

There's two brand new attractions for 2012 – the terrifying Nemesis Sub-Terra, and Ice Age The 4D Experience.

Nemesis Sub-Terra is a physically and psychologically thrilling experience that takes you deep underground into a restricted facility where a system of hidden caves has been discovered. It emerges that the Nemesis site, first excavated in 1994, is not all it seems. A darkened maze of tunnels await those brave enough to enter Nemesis Sub-Terra.

Ice Age The 4D Experience combines 3-D footage, based on the third movie in the blockbuster series, with an exhilarating variety of physical effects including icy blasts, snow and bubbles. Fans will also have the opportunity to meet Sid and Scrat around the Alton Towers Resort.

If you aren’t lucky enough to win the overnight break, the Alton Towers Resort could be sending you and your town to the theme park for a day. Throughout August, the Alton Towers Resort's Fantastical Express bus will visit five towns and cities across the UK, whisking the residents away to spend the day at Britain’s Greatest Escape.

Whether it’s the doom and gloom of the recession, or the Olympics that you want to escape from, the Alton Towers Resort is on hand with a mix of adrenalin pumping rides and family attractions, offering the perfect summer day out or short break.
