Get ready for 'scariest ride in UK'

27 posts in this topic

Alton Towers Resort is to launch "the scariest ride in the UK" next year.Thirteen, built on the site of the old Corkscrew rollercoaster, aims to combine physical and psychological fear and will be dubbed a "psychoaster".The £15 million ride will be restricted to 16 to 55-year-olds only and visitors limited to one ride per day "due to concerns about emotional maturity and physical health", resort bosses said.Visitors will also be required to sign a waiver which assures the resort of their physical and mental health "to avoid any resulting lawsuits".Alton Towers' latest secret weapon comes after the successes of Nemesis, Oblivion and Air and will be based on the discovery of an unearthed ancient burial site in an area of unexplored woodland known as the Dark Forest.A spokesman said: "Visitors will be invited to take a petrifying ride on Thirteen, venturing into the seemingly living and breathing Dark Forest. There they will face an unknown horror that has been unleashed from the ancient crypt."Built on a burial site that is part of the original Alton Abbey, one of the main features will take place inside the unearthed crypt.Morwenna Angove, Alton Towers' sales and marketing director, said: "This new ride will be a shocking, never-experienced-before rollercoaster and we're excited that once again the Alton Towers Resort is able to offer visitors the chance to experience something unavailable in any other part of the world."However, just as we take physical health and safety very seriously, Thirteen demands that we also consider our visitors' emotional health, and as such we're not afraid of introducing necessary measures to ensure riders are fully prepared and healthy enough to brave Thirteen."The new ride took a team of 35 people nine months to build and will be launched in March next year.

this ride is sick! apparently when weather conditions are so so. eg windy, sometimes the ride wont make it fully over the crest and just does a reverse freefall ride back down instead
