Alton towers announce reopening date for new look Nemesis


The Iconic Nemesis Rollercoaster will reopen at Alton Towers next month.

The rollercoaster which also celebrates its 30th anniversary this year will reopen with the theme park on March 16th after 18 months of closure due to an extensive refurbishment.

Now known as Nemesis Reborn, part of the transformation has seen the entire 250-tonne, 716-metre-long track replaced as well as a complete overhaul of the beast which gives the ride its name.

To mark the announcement the giant, blazing eye of Alton Towers’ Nemesis creature casts a spine-tingling glow at one of the UK’s most notorious alien hotspots.

Cannock Chase in Staffordshire has been a hotbed of unexplained alien activity since the 1980s.


The appearance of the floating seven-metre-wide eye heralds the hugely anticipated opening of Nemesis Reborn, which Alton Towers Resort can today officially confirm, will take place on March 16.

Breathtaking drone footage and images released today showed the other-worldly scene at sunrise.

Alien activity has long been synonymous with Cannock Chase, located on the doorstep of Alton Towers in the Staffordshire countryside.

The Ministry Of Defence has officially investigated dozens of reports of unexplained activity and strange lights in the area.

Incidents include school children who claim to have witnessed an extra-terrestrial figure with a ‘lemon-shaped’ head and a series of triangle shapes seen in the sky.

Alton towers say that extensive, new, immersive elements will propel visitors into this compelling new narrative from the moment they set foot in the resort’s Forbidden Valley.

On its opening in 1994 Nemesis was crowned Europe’s first inverted rollercoaster and has gone on to develop a cult status amongst thrillseekers globally.

Millions of fans from around the world have visited the Staffordshire theme park to experience the thrilling 3.5 G-force, as the ride dangled thrillseekers along numerous twists and turns at speeds of up to 50mph.

Bianca Sammut, Divisional Director at Alton Towers Resort, said: “Throughout its first 30 years, Nemesis captured the imagination of millions of thrillseekers from around the globe.

“It’s been an astonishing privilege to bring this truly iconic ride into the 21st century.

“We’ve retained its essential DNA, while harnessing the most state-of-the-art technology and immersive storytelling techniques to ensure it will retain its status as a truly unrivalled rollercoaster experience for a whole new generation.

“And from March 16, those brave enough will be able to experience for themselves the truly awesome power of Nemesis Reborn.”
