The theme park is closing the ride for a revamp and Nemesis will reopen in 2024.

Details of the transformation won't be revealed just yet but it's something for fans of the attraction to look forward to.

Kate McBirnie, Head of Product Excellence at Alton Towers Resort, said: “Nemesis is Europe’s first ever inverted rollercoaster, which has been exciting thrillseekers since 1994. 

“The legendary rollercoaster is loved by thrillseekers across the UK and beyond, and we want to give fans of the ride the opportunity to experience Nemesis in its current form before it closes on November 6.”

Nemesis cost £10m and was crowned Europe’s first inverted rollercoaster when it opened in 1994. Riders experience 3.5 G-force as they race past the rocks and rivers of the theme park’s Forbidden Valley at speeds of up to 50mph.
