Alton Towers names new ride ‘Nemesis Sub-Terra’

Alton Towers has revealed that the name of its forthcoming dark ride will be Nemesis Sub-Terra.

Based on the original story of the Nemesis alien creature, the enclosed ride will be themed around a series of underground catacombs.

An encounter with the creature itself is believed to be the centre point of the ride experience.

The central mechanism is understood to be a drop ride by the Swiss manufacturers ABC, who made the Extremis rides found at the various Dungeon attractions in the UK.

Nemesis Sub-Terra will launch on the first day of Alton Towers’ main season, 24 March.
