Alton Towers Half Price Tickets
If you are up in the Midlands with your motorhome, you may like to get some Alton Towers half
price tickets. So here’s why you should go to Alton Towers:
I love theme parks. I love them all but Alton Towers Theme Park has got to be up there with the best
If, like me, you love thrill rides Alton Towers has a total of 9 to make you scream with pleasure! From
‘Rita’, (the ride that sends you from 0-100kph in 2.5 seconds), to the never aging ‘Nemesis’ there is
enough here to keep wondering whether spare underwear may have been a good idea!
One of the most talked about rides is ‘Oblivion’. This ride takes you to a height of 55 meters (180ft) to
a vertical drop, reaching nearly 112kph (70mph) through and underground tunnel before reaching a
sudden stop some 76 seconds later. Don’t be fooled by the short ride time, as it’s only half the time it
will take you to catch your breath.
New for 2010 is the much anticipated ‘Th13teen’ ride. This ride is conventional in most ways except it
has a world first. It drops vertically! Not in the same way ‘Oblivion does, it actually drops the whole
train horizontally. Oh, and then you are sent backwards.
Under the ‘Laughs and Frights’ heading there are a total of 11 rides. The ever-popular haunted house is
here but with a twist. In ‘Duel’ you have to battle the ghosts within. On a hot summers day you will
love getting wet on the ‘Congo River Rapids’ then climb aboard the ‘Runaway Mine Train’. Then there
is ‘Haunted Hollow’. This is not a ride but in fact a walk through with loads of surprises to scare you.
When you have recovered the ‘Skyride’ will take you on a breath taking view of the parks rides,
attractions and gardens.
As well as the main park there is also Alton Towers Water Park. Here you can relax under the waterfall
in ‘Lagoona Bay’ or Gently float down the ‘Lazy River’. Perhaps you would prefer lying back in the
Bubble Pools before testing your skill in the Wacky Water Works Tree House or splashing down one
