Coach Hire Alton Towers
Alton Towers, as if you didn’t know is one of the UK’s biggest theme parks (if not the biggest) and is set in 800 acres of lush green Staffordshire countryside. The area has centuries of history dating back to around 1000BC when an Iron Age fort was built in the area.
Being a little more famous for its theme park, and attracting just shy of three million visitors per year slots it nicely into the top ten theme parks in Europe, Alton Towers has some of the most white knuckle and mind blowing rides in the world and often attracts die-hard thrill seekers from across the globe.
Rides such as ‘Nemesis’, one of the first larger rides installed at the park is brilliantly placed in between a natural gorge and is an ‘overhead’ type coaster meaning that you feel a real thrill of weightlessness as your feet dangle below and the ride throws you in directions which seem to defy against the laws of physics.
Next up is the famous ‘Air’ ride, again another overhead coaster but once you are carefully loaded on to the ride you are tilted forwards so that you are almost in a ‘Superman’ position, not quite as boisturous as Nemesis but you get a complete feeling of flying – Its worthwhile getting to the front of this one!
For the non-faint hearted you should also check-out ‘Oblivion’ – an absolute genius ride which carefully carries two rows of passengers to the top of a seemingly vertical drop and holds you there, just when you think it’s safe to catch your breath you are literally dropped into ‘Oblivion’ through a cloud of dry ice, into a dark tunnel, reaching 60mph before a huge euphoric feeling of achievement that you escape with your life coming out of the other side, again, well worth getting in the front row if you can!
Just a few of Coach2.com’s favourite attractions at Alton Towers but there is so much to do here you might need a couple of days to get around it all – There are also two themed hotels onsite which the kids will love if you decide to stay over and Alton Towers often provide deals with park access before it opens to the public to allow you to sample the rides without the inevitable queueing making it a worthwhile option.
