    Got to visit Alton Towers for the first time in over 20 years this summer…god I feel old now… I was very impressed with the park. Some of the rides are top notch. Hex is one of the smartest rides I have ever experienced and Nemesis was by far the smoothest roller coaster I have ever been on. Oblivion is another great ride. Thirteen had a great twist to it and Rita was fast. Riding through the tree tops on the monorail or the skyway was a lot of fun as well.

    The Park isn’t Disney or Universal quality, but is far above what you would find theme wise at any amusement park. The drive there may be the best ride of all. English countryside with some of the tightest, scariest turns you could ever experience on a ride.

    • That is great to hear! I’m dying to get over to the UK to check out these parks. I’ve heard nothing but great things about Alton Towers. I’m sure it’s not DIsney or Universal, but it seems really detailed–Nemesis (from the pics) looks like the best “Themed” coaster of it’s type in the world. Love the blood river and waterfall details. Thanks for listening. 😉
