How can you help Alton Towers get more visitors to their theme park in 2023?

Alton Towers are launching a new marketing campaign to encourage people to visit their theme park. The campaign has been designed to promote their two most popular access passes: day passes (park entry for one day with parking fees charged on top) and annual passes (unlimited entry for 12 months and free parking).

Creating and delivering marketing campaigns costs money, time and effort to manage, so it’s important that Alton Towers think about the type of people who they want to see their campaign and who are most likely to visit their theme park.

Next Step Challenge:
We need your help to identify who is their target audience(s) by using your own experiences and knowledge of visiting theme parks and working with our data to solve their business problem. Can you help us?
