Alton Towers

Me and Amanda decided to go to Alton Towers today as it was a nice sunny day, and we also had a spare 2 for 1 voucher :-) We did the usual of buying passes that allowed jump the queues on certain rides, which we kept for the afternoon when it got busier. We rushed straight to the Forbidden Valley and went on Nemesis, then on rip saw where we got soaked. This was good as it was very hot.

In all we went on 11 rides, Nemesis we did twice. The best experience of the day was when we went on Rita, the roller coaster that propells you forward between 0 - 100kph in 2.5 seconds. We have done this ride before, but this time we decided to queue for the front row. This was a totally different experience, a terrifying one, as you can see from the photo above. That thing was bloody fast. I would definately do it again though :-)

This is probaby the last time we will go to tha park this year, so I hope they have some new rides for next year. They have closed down the black hole ride, so hopefully something will go there in it's place.
