Alton Towers, the largest theme park in the United Kingdom, is in Staffordshire, England.
Alton Towers, which is owned by Merlin Entertainments, is generally considered by roller-coaster enthusiasts to hold its own with any such park in the world.
Nemesis and Oblivion (you get the picture) are white-knuckle rides to match anything in Europe and most rides in the USA. The park is very well themed and is built in a number of zones, namely Tower Street, Mutiny Bay, Katanga Canyon, Gloomy Wood, X-Sector, Forbidden Valley, Dark Forest, Cloud Cuckoo Land, and CBeebies Land. The ruins of this stately home are even used in a ride - Hex.
Alton Towers is well signposted from the major motorways and is easily accessible from the major cities in England. Those visitors who wish to overnight can stay at one of the park's two hotels - the Alton Towers Hotel and the newer Splash Landings Hotel, which is also associated with a spectacular water park.
