Alton Towers Resort bans loud sex in some hotel rooms

I’m sure we’ve all stayed a night in a hotel where we wished that there was a ban on sex because of the couple in the room next door, but I can honestly say I never thought I’d see a day when an actual hotel sex ban went into effect.

That’s exactly what has happened in some hotel rooms at the Alton Towers Resort, a giant theme park and water park in Staffordshire outside London.

After complaints from families about noisy hotel neighbors louder than the screams from the roller coasters, Alton Towers’ owners have designated certain rooms as quiet “family friendly” zones and others as “adults only.” The family friendly zones have been set up in both the Alton Towers Hotel and Splash Landings.

To be fair, I’ve been awakened by loud kids more often than I have by couples getting it on in the room next door, so perhaps those adults-only zones are the place to be.
