Top Ten Best Rides At Alton Towers

The Top Ten

1 Nemesis

Until I went to Thorpe Park, Nemesis was my favourite ride ever! I love air coasters and going upside down, and generally I just loved the way track was built, making it feel so awesome! - m1a2r3k4j5o6n7e8s9

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. Me and my best friend go on it 3-4 times every time we go.

Why Air is number 1 I will never know! Nemesis is considered one of the best rides in the whole world! Air on the other hand is not thrilling at all and is fairly boring.

Best ride... In a great setting.
Well done.

2 The Smiler

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

Great! So many loops! But 2 roller coasters crashed on The Smiler. :(

It's VERY fast and it feels so smooth! I was scared but really there is nothing to be scared about! (Unless you don't like going upside down)

Amazing, 10/10 totally will ride again

3 Air

It was so thrilling! I felt like a fairy soaring through the air. Like a bird with majestic wing, feeling like Tinkerbell when she flies through Neverland. Action packed, 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 thought it was scary but it is so unique and one of the best rides I've been on

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

4 Oblivion

This ride looks ultra amazing don't know if my friend will wanna go on it though

This ride is scary and fun + there are good views and it's the fastest there but most people think rita is - Roaroftime197

Steven hawking was a good footballer, he was a good dribbler

5 Rita

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

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

Looks really fast and exiting definitely going to go on it

6 Th13teen

So good but I hate the bit when the big bang happens and the best bit is the slopes and the big drop and when it goes backwards

Awesome! I love the freefall bit especially, but going backwards is also extremely fun - nic1997ps3

I love th13teen when you fall and when it goes back in darkness. I would go on it again next time

I went on it with my friends Dillon and Mo. It was epic!

7 Sonic Spinball

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

It's a awesome ride

8 Ripsaw

It is good

9 Enterprise

This is pure banging

10 Galactica

Good ride would ride again next year

Such a good ride. The virtual reality are an amazing part of the ride. Ride again.

LOL Galactica and AIR are the same thing. the only thing is that they renamed AIR as Galactica

Best ride in the world everr

The Contenders

11 The Flume

I was so sad when it shut it was one of the best rides at Alton towers

I think it should be the 1st best ride+it's fun but scary


12 Wicker Man

I think it should be number 1 because it made out of wood and goes super fast but nemesis is made out of metal and is more safe than wicker man

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

13 Runaway Mine Train

I am going soon to Alton towers so I can't vote but will when I return this rides looks perfect for families which is right as I have a family with a younger 8 year old brother

Am I the only one who thinks this is Wario's goldmine and shy guy falls combined?

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!

Great ride, Faster than expected
