Alton Towers appointed Mischief to a consumer PR brief in January last year. 

Mischief's remit included working on two seperate attractions for the theme park: its Rollercoaster Restaurant and Galactica, which is Alton Towers' first virtual reality rollercoaster.

A spokeswoman for Alton Towers told PRWeek that Mischief would not be handling consumer PR for the theme park in 2018, but added that there were no plans to hold a pitch for the business "at this stage".

Earlier this month, Mischief was appointed by TripAdvisor to grow its tours and attractions business in the UK.

Mischief, which was acquired by Engine Group in 2011, is ranked as the 59th biggest agency in the UK, according to the 2017 PRWeek Top 150 Consultancies ranking table.
