But the Staffordshire-based theme park has taken to social media to warn that the post is not genuine and that they are not giving away the tickets in this manner.

Posting on Facebook, Alton Towers said: “We have been made aware of a social media scam offering free tickets to Alton Towers Resort that is currently circulating on Facebook. This is NOT an official offer or affiliated to Alton Towers Resort in any way.

“Whilst action is taken to remove the scam, we would strongly advise against sharing your details or the post.”
