Original Nemesis riders sought for new ride preview

Alton Towers is asking for people who rode the Nemesis rollercoaster in its opening year to apply to experience the park’s latest attraction before the general public.

Nemesis Sub-Terra is a new indoor dark ride experience currently being readied for the park’s main season starting on 24 March.

The new attraction will be based on the same story of an alien creature which was the basis for the original 1994 rollercoaster.

The park is inviting those that rode the original ride in its opening year to experience the new attraction between 19 and 22 March.

Application takes place on the new ride’s official website and closes on 24 February.

Four Extremis-style ABC drop towers will form the core of the experience, which will also involve interactive pre and post-ride elements.
