22 Things To Do Before You’re 1.4 Metres at Alton Towers…

We recently visited Alton Towers and we were asked to take on their new Mini Mission and my girls couldn’t wait. We love Alton Towers and last time the girls had lots of fun at Cbeebiesland.

The new Mini Mission is – 22 Things to do before you’re 1.4 metres, which is the magical height at Alton Towers. To be honest there are lots of rides that my girls are able to go on even though Holly is under 1.4 metres so don’t let this put you off visiting. The Mini Mission is extra fun activities that is great for getting them to look out for things as they make their way around Alton Towers.

I don’t know about your children, but give them a pack with a list of things to do and find and they just love it. The packs are free to collect at The Towers Trading Shop in Towers Street when you arrive at the theme park.

You do various tasks throughout the day and claim stickers and badges as you go. Making sure you have even more adventures from your visit.

As soon as you get your Mini Mission Pack from The Trading Towers shop, your first mission is outside and that is to count the frogs on Towers Street.

There are lots of fun missions to do, like ‘Get a wave from a Rapids Rider’, which is fun to do and an easy one for little ones. My girls also liked looking for Feathers McClaw in Mutiny Bay!

As you walk past the Wicker Man ride, if you get a High Five from the host at the entrance, you get a sticker. Holly loved soaking some people riding the Battle Galleons, this was great fun and another one ticked off the list.

Depending how tall your child is, they can either become a Towers Voyager which is recommended for children over 1.2m and complete the missions in this section. Or you can become a Towers Explorer which is recommended for children under 1.2m and complete the missions in this section. We did the Towers Explorer!

This section is all within CBeebiesland and first to do was find the time on the Clock Tower and fill in the time on your mini mission pack.

We then headed to the Big Fun Show Time area and counted how many bugs we could see. I won’t give it away!

Holly also completed the Hopscotch and I may have had a go too. I used to love it as a child!

Another favourite of the girls in Cbeebiesland is Mr Tumble Sensory Garden, they love to run around and find his spotty bag. Our mission here was to learn how to sign the butterfly with Mr Tumble and the girls did a great job.

Once you’ve finished your Mini Mission, share your mission experience with Alton Towers online to be in with a chance of winning a family short break to Alton Towers Resort. Just use the hashtag #AltonTowers22Things. Or alternatively leave your details at the Resort box Office. Good luck and have fun!

We had a great day at Alton Towers, going on all the rides and taking part in the 22 Things to do before you’re 1.4m made it even more fun. My girls loved it and I hope it will be there when we next go back, as I know they will be asking me.

Disclosure: We were given fast track tickets to the rides at Alton Towers for the day in return for taking part in the mini mission. But we would’ve done it anyway, as my girls love it!

    claiming badges always makes activities even more fun 🙂 I have heard from a few of my friends that Alton Towers is a wonderful place, and their kids loved it x

    HUGE fans of Alton Towers here and there really is so much to do before you can hit the big rides! We’ve been going for years and the youngest three still insist on spending the whole day in Cbeebies Land!

    My kids hate rollercoaster so always find it a bit frustrating at theme parks but it looks like they have lots to keep the small people entertained

  4. What a great way to make sure you don’t miss anything and to keep little ones entertained and focused x So much to do for little-uns too!

    We have recently been to Alton Towers, but didn’t do the mini missions, will keep in mind for next time!

    That sounds like a great way to get little kids involved and a way for them to enjoy Alton Towers. It’s always a worry when visiting theme parks whether there will be much for little ones to enjoy!

    Oh this is amazing! We’re off to Alton Towers next week I think and this would be perfect for us! Thanks for letting us know about it. Stickers always go down well with our little one.

    Wow they have tons of options for younger children! I was always one of those who love the “big” rides and the scary ones but I am only 4ft11 now so it took me ages to grow enough lol
