Alton Towers: Hex and Skyride closed for season

Alton Towers

Alton Towers has confirmed that the Hex dark ride and Skyride cable car will remain closed for the rest of the 2023 season.

Hex has not operated since early in the theme park’s season, standing closed due to technical issues.

Skyride has not been open to the public at all during 2023, but is understood to have tested early in the season.

In an email seen by RideRater, Alton Towers divisional director Bianca Sammut said that the decision to keep both rides closed was “difficult”.

“As you will be aware, Skyride and Hex – The Legend of the Towers have not been open to guests as we would like,” she said.

“Whilst our teams continue to carry out work on these attractions, we have now made the difficult decision to keep [them] closed for the remainder of the 2023 season.

“We know this will be a disappointment to many, however we want to assure you that this step is essential for the long-term delivery of these attractions.”
