The appearance of the floating seven-metre-wide eye heralds the hugely anticipated opening of Nemesis Reborn, which Alton Towers Resort can today officially confirm, will take place on March 16th.

Breathtaking drone footage and images released today showed the other-worldly scene at sunrise.

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 three decades 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.

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.

Alien activity has long been synonymous with Cannock Chase, located on the doorstep of Alton Towers in the Staffordshire countryside.

The Ministry Of Defence has officially investigated dozens of reports of unexplained activity and strange lights in the area.

Incidents include school children who claim to have witnessed an extra-terrestrial figure with a ‘lemon-shaped’ head and a series of triangle shapes seen in the sky.
