Top Ten Best Rides at Alton Towers

The Top Ten
1 The Smiler

Very thrilling ride, just keeps on looping! I was terrified on the vertical climb! You may feel slightly (extremely) dizzy afterward, but after a five-minute cool down, you'll just want to go again!

Loved it so much! I would recommend it a lot since it's just so much fun. Don't be scared and remember to smile always. You belong to the Smiler now.

Come on, this has got to be the best ride there! The inversions are amazing. Highly recommend it unless you don't like going upside down!

2 Galactica

It was so thrilling! I felt like a fairy soaring through the air, like a bird with majestic wings, feeling like Tinkerbell when she flies through Neverland.

Action-packed, it felt like James Bond. I really recommend it if you wish to be as fast as a bullet! I went on it four times, each time in the front row. It has the best experience!

Amazing ride, not as scary as I thought it would be, but you still get the thrill. By far the most amazing ride I've ever been on!

I was absolutely petrified to go on Air at first, but it was so fun! Would definitely recommend!

3 Nemesis

Nemesis is the world's most intense ride experience! After I went to Thorpe Park, I thought that was it. But when I went to Alton Towers, I thought it wouldn't be as good.

When I rode Nemesis, that changed my life forever! This is the best coaster in the UK by far! VOTE NEMEY!

Until I went to Thorpe Park, Nemesis was my favorite ride ever! I love air coasters and going upside down, and generally, I just loved the way the track was built, making it feel so awesome!

This was the first ride I ever rode at Alton Towers. I love it so much. It is also the first ride I rode with a loop in it. My best friend and I go on it 3-4 times every time we go.

4 Oblivion

It is the best ride there. Short and sweet. Such a thrilling ride, especially the section where you hang over the vertical drop for a few seconds and then whoosh, pitch black in the hole you enter as you ride.

This ride is awesome, but I'm not sure if my dad liked it. I went on it twice.

Should be top, but its 87.5-degree drop.

5 Rita

Best ride at the park. The speed gets you every time, and front seats are worth waiting for.

It's much faster than it looks. Quite scary, but give it a go anyway.

The fastest ride there. I just screamed.

6 Th13teen

It was so scary the first time when it dropped. I was so scared, but now I go on it all the time. I totally recommend it!

I love Th13teen when you fall and when it goes back in darkness. I would go on it again next time.

Awesome! I love the freefall bit especially, but going backwards is also extremely fun.

7 Enterprise
8 Spinball Whizzer

It's fast and wild, but there's a bit where it spins round to the right and then to the left, and I really hurt myself on that bit. Still one of the best rides though.

Epic! I prefer it to Galactica (maybe).

9 Runaway Mine Train

This is such a fun ride, perfect for all the family! My dad loved it, my 4-year-old brother loved it. This shows it is the ultimate family ride! PS it is quicker than you think!

Am I the only one who thinks this is Wario's Goldmine and Shy Guy Falls combined?

10 Hex - The Legend of the Towers

So calming yet scary, but the music comforts you!

The Contenders
11 Tea Cups
12 Wicker Man

It is going to be awesome! I'm heading there in July on a school trip.

13 Congo River Rapids
14 The Blade
15 Duel

A game/ride for kids and adults. It has a spooky effect and is so fun to shoot the ghosts and ghouls. Whatever you do, don't miss Duel!
