If you’re a fan of rollercoasters you’re in for a real treat as Alton Towers has revealed a first look at Nemesis Reborn ahead of its grand reopening next month.

Known for offering some of the biggest and best rides in the UK - including the world's first vertical free fall drop on TH13TEEN and a record-breaking 14 inversions on The Smiler - the Staffordshire theme park is now ready to unveil an upgrade to its most iconic rollercoaster - Nemesis.

30 years and a staggering 50 million riders after first opening at Alton Towers, the famous inverted coaster has been transformed into Nemesis Reborn.

One of the only coasters in the world to constantly rank in ‘top rollercoaster polls’ for its entire lifespan, the ride has been closed for over a year, undergoing an exciting upgrade…

You can check out the newly released footage here:

As well as reaching 3.5 G-force and speeds of up to 50mph, the updated ride will boast immersive technology and a rebooted story that a giant beast imprisoned underground for much of the past three decades is finally free and out to wreak vengeance.

A post on Towers Times says: “It’s official - Nemesis Reborn is confirmed by Alton Towers as being due to open from Saturday 16th March, the first day of the 2024 season!”

With the opening date now confirmed, it’ll soon be time to feel that fresh spring air on your face - and in great news, when you book a day out for you and three friends at Alton Towers using your TOTUM discount, depending on when you go, we reckon you could save up to an incredible (estimated) £188** compared to paying on the day!


Divisional Director at Alton Towers Resort, Bianca Sammut, said: “Throughout its first 30 years, Nemesis captured the imagination of millions of thrill-seekers 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.”

In a post on X, the theme park shared dramatic drone footage of the beast's giant, blazing eye casting a spine-tingling glow over a lake at sunrise.

They wrote: “Spotted in notorious alien hotspot, Cannock Chase, a fearsome creature, fury heightened and more uncontrollable than ever before. Nemesis Reborn…Are you ready?”

And it seems like people cannot wait, with people taking to the comments in their droves.

One person wrote: “Posting this just before work means I'm gonna think about it all day lmao.” Another added: “Cannot wait for opening day now to get back on my no1 UK coaster,” while a third said: “Can’t wait gonna be so good.”
