Nemesis is an incredible ride and I love going on it


I love this ride! It is such a thrilling experience and it has multiple twists, turns and inversions! If your braving to go on nemesis, then try and keep your head up!

Really good inversions!
My favourite part is the helix to zero g roll!

5 Rita

So thrilling yet not too scary

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

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


Best Eva!

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

7 Galactica

I thought the ride was cool and I would recommend for your first ride to go on but it is scary at first.hope you enjoy and I am only ten 11 in June the 26

In the top 5 in my top ten I hate this ride

Best ride in the world everr

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

8 Enterprise

Love your choice of words


This is pure banging

9 Sonic Spinball

Epic! I prefer it to galactica (maybe)

One of those rides where you genuinely can’t stop laughing

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

10 Wicker Man

The queue moves fast for a 65 min wait x


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.

The Contenders

11 Submission
12 Ripsaw

It is good

13 Runaway Mine Train

Great ride, Faster than expected

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!

14 Hex - The Legend of the Towers


The branch off the tree got stuck up my bum and came out my vagina and penetrated my nan

My baby fell out of her pushchair and snapped her neck

The branch went through everybody on the ride and we got branches up our asses

Splish splash, your opinion is trash

I love it but I hate the fact you can't control the way you go

19 Duel

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