Kids’ birthday parties are not what they used to be. More than a small soiree at home, with food, fizzy drinks, games and screaming kids, children’s parties have gone sophisticato. It’s estimated that UK parents are spending in excess of GBP 1 billion on giving their children a party to remember. With more and more parents keen to outsource the noise and mess, Alton Towers has stepped up to the plate to fill a gap in the market. The latest suite to be added to the Alton Towers Hotel is the Sleepover Suite. A themed room designed to hold the ultimate girls’ night-in, where up to six friends can share an evening of deluxe, unadulterated and uninterrupted fun. Picture a sound-proofed, bright pink room, enabling a night of blaring pop-music and girly shrieking. The suite is divided in two – an area for partying and a section for sleeping. The party section features a state-of-the-art home entertainment system with a plasma TV, a Sony PlayStation, a mini-dance floor, a karaoke machine, a pink fridge brimming with ice cream and chocolate and a library of chick flicks for an all night movie marathon. The sleeping section includes six Chill-out beds by SilentNight which can clip together to make one. The bathroom area is girl-party friendly with wall-to-wall mirrors, dressing tables and lots of complimentary pampering products from UK health and beauty outlet Superdrug. The opportunities for cross promotion with other brands is limitless. 🙂 The Sleepover Suite’s pilot test launched July 14th and costs begin at GBP 300 per night, with demand already strong for this new concept.
