Alton Towers ready to crown ‘King of the Coasters’

Alton Towers will host a special ‘coronation’ event when the winner of their All Time Greats poll is revealed on Bank Holiday Monday.

The park have been running a vote to find the most popular ride of their five headlining rollercoasters, Air, Nemesis, Oblivion, Rita and Thirteen.

Nemesis is currently leading with over 95,000 votes, way ahead of the closest rival Air on 57,000, and is expected to be declared the winner on 29 August.

Over 300,000 votes have so far been recorded.

Voting closes at midnight on 28 August, with the ‘King’ being declared in a ceremony featuring a red carpet and “other majestic shenanigans,” according to an Alton Towers press release.

Free entry will also be given to the first 100 people that arrive at the park wearing a crown on the day.
