Oblivion: The World’s First Vertical Drop Rollercoaster

Oblivion at Alton Towers


Oblivion is a steel roller coaster located at Alton Towers.

You are invited to face your fears via oblivion. You have a chance to relish what’s about to happen as you’re held, perched above the edge of the first vertical drop rollercoaster in history.

Even though you know you shouldn’t, you can’t help but gawk at the enormous 180-foot drop, which is the largest at Alton Towers Theme Park.
