The company on Thursday announced plans to shift spending away from renovating the company’s existing “Midway” city-centre attractions, such as Madame Tussauds and Sea Life, and its resort theme parks, including Italy’s Gardaland and the UK’s Alton Towers.

A one off documentary will go behind the scenes at Alton Towers, the UK’s biggest theme park as they launch their multi-million pound new rollercoaster, Wickerman. Eagerly awaited by rollercoaster enthusiasts as the first wooden rollercoaster in 21 years with a structure that appears to set on fire, this is also Alton Tower’s first new ride since The Smiler accident in 2015. We follow the team at Alton Towers as they work around the clock getting Wickerman ready for the big launch when the park re-opens this March.
