Alton Towers Confirms Opening Date of Nemesis Reborn 5/5 (6)

Nemesis Reborn

A giant, blazing eye of Alton Towers’ Nemesis creature cast a spine-tingling glow at Cannock Chase in Staffordshire, one of the UK’s most notorious alien hotspots.

The Eye of a Monster

The appearance of the floating seven-metre-wide eye heralds the hugely anticipated opening of Nemesis Reborn, which Alton Towers Resort today officially confirmed, will take place on March 16 2024. The site in Cannock Chase was chosen due to it being a hotbed of unexplained alien activity since the 1980s.

Nemesis – An Iconic Ride

Nemesis is returning following an extensive transformation of the iconic ride, that has come to be revered by millions of thrill-seekers since its launch 30 years ago.

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.

Having been imprisoned underground for much of the past three decades by a shadowy organisation known as The Phalanx, Nemesis is now free and out to wreak vengeance. The beast’s eye, ringed by razor-sharp teeth, is brought vividly to life through state-of-the-art audio visual technology – demonstrating its evolution into a predator.

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