An Alton Towers spokeswoman said: “Further to recent updates from the Government on the response to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the very difficult decision to postpone the opening of Alton Towers Resort Theme Park and to close our Hotels and support offices as a precautionary measure.
“While we have been looking forward to welcoming visitors this weekend, we believe that this decision is the right thing to protect the health and wellbeing of our employees and guests.
“Any guests with hotel bookings in the coming days will be contacted by our team to discuss moving or cancelling their bookings.
“Guests with pre-booked tickets on dates when the Theme Park is not open will have their tickets revalidated so they can arrange their visit once the park reopens.
“We ask our guests to visit the website for more information.”
