Our Review

Th13teen at Alton Towers is not your average coaster; it’s a groundbreaking mix of physical thrills and psychological chills. As the world’s first ‘psychoaster’, it combines traditional roller coaster elements with dark ride segments and surprising free-fall drop that tantalize the senses. The unique experience begins the moment you enter the Dark Forest, where Th13teen resides. The ride’s theme, tied to an ancient crypt, and the surrounding eerie atmosphere set the stage for a ride that’s shrouded in supernatural intrigue.

What really sets Th13teen apart is its unexpected elements. Unlike coasters that focus solely on speed or height, Th13teen plays with the rider’s anticipation, delivering sudden twists and turns that defy conventional coaster rides. It’s this innovative approach to thrill rides that cements Th13teen’s position as a unique and memorable experience at Alton Towers.

From the moment you strap into your seat on Th13teen, the excitement begins to build with an ascent into the treetops of the Dark Forest. The ride takes you through sharp turns and swift drops that elicit screams of delight from riders. The real surprise comes mid-ride, when the coaster car is suddenly and unexpectedly dropped vertically in total darkness, a unique feature that sets hearts racing. This drop, followed by a reverse section, creates a sensation rarely found in other coasters, providing a fresh and exhilarating experience even for seasoned coaster enthusiasts.

The combination of outdoor and indoor elements, with a storyline that brings an extra layer of excitement, ensures that Th13teen offers a complete sensory experience. It’s not just a ride; it’s an adventure that plays with the fear of the unknown and the thrill of the unexpected.
