Please Scroll Down for the Next Question

The Correct Answer is Galactica @ Alton Towers

Alton Towers conceived the concept of a flying roller coaster twelve years prior to the ride opening. Following the opening of Nemesis in 1994, there were plans to open a flying coaster in 1998, but this was delayed due to technological limitations. As with Nemesis and a number of Alton Towers other Secret Weapons, the roller coaster was developed in part by ride designer John Wardley. Construction of the ride began in 2001 and it officially opened to the public on 16 March 2002. A £4.5m marketing campaign for the ride included commercials based around the ride’s slogan, “assume the position”.

The Correct Answer is Vampire @ Chessington World of Adventures Resort

When the Vampire roller coaster was first constructed at Chessington World of Adventures, it was heavily themed in Gothic style. Theming included guests entering through castle gates, a fog-filled underpass beneath the coaster track, a graveyard canopy with Gothic tombs and a dark passageway leading into the station. The ride station is dressed as a castle ballroom with flaming chandeliers, Gothic murals and a large pipe organ stage piece, with dramatic lighting and audio. Some of the original theming has now been removed but the ride still proves very popular, especially during the Halloween season.

#5. Which ride does this belong to?

Please Scroll Down for the Next Question

The Correct Answer is The Smiler @ Alton Towers

The Smiler at Alton Towers features a World Record-Breaking 14 inversions. The thrilling ride is split into two halves, the first half immediately starts with a heartline roll (inversion 1) before the train ascends a regular chain lift hill.

The Smiler Theming

Upon reaching the top of the lift hill, the train drops into a 180-degree right turn before banking into a downward corkscrew (inversion 2). The train navigates its way through two consecutive dive loops (inversions 3 & 4) before travelling over a trimmed airtime hill into the ride’s largest element, a Batwing, which consists of a dive loop and a sidewinder (inversions 5 and 6). The Batwing is closely followed by another corkscrew (inversion 7) before reaching the midway point of the ride.

The second half of the ride commences with a vertical lift-hill, which both helps to save on space and increases the thrill level. At the top of the lift hill, riders are presented with a lovely view of the Towers themselves and the rest of the Theme Park. The train descends, 180-degrees to the left, banking into a downward corkscrew (inversion 8). Riders then navigate through a sea serpent roll (inversions 9 & 10), followed by a short drop into an airtime hill. Following the airtime hill, the train dives into a cobra roll (inversions 11 & 12) before twisting through a double corkscrew (inversions 13 & 14), turning left into the final brake run.

#6. Which roller coaster is this?

Please Scroll Down for the Next Question

The Correct Answer is Mumbo Jumbo @ Flamingo Land

Mumbo Jumbo at Flamingo Land is not a particularly fast roller coaster, its excitement comes from the way it defies gravity. Examples of this include its beyond-vertical 112-degree drop and its abnormal banking. The ride features an “outside” turn, meaning you bank to the left whilst turning right, this is the opposite of a banked corner which you find on most standard roller coasters.
