Alton Towers

Lonely Planet review

England's most popular theme park, Alton Towers is truly a must for white-knuckle fiends. Entry prices are almost as steep as the rides, of which there are more than 100 - including the terrifying vertical drop of the Oblivion, upside-down roller coasters, log flumes and more. Rita, Queen of Speed catapults you from 0-100kph in a lunch-losing 2.5 seconds.
