Enterprise is an Enterprise built by German manufacturer HUSS currently located at Alton Towers in Alton, Staffordshire, England, UK.


The attraction opened in 1984 and was situated in the Festival Park area (now called the Dark Forest). It was relocated to the new X-Sector area for the 1998 season to coincide with the opening of the area and the Oblivion roller coaster.

The ride was left disassembled during 2022. In October 2022, Alton Towers replied to a comment on their Twitter regarding Enterprise, saying the ride is no longer at the resort.[1][2]

In February 2023, a video was uploaded to YouTube showing a crane and workmen cutting the ride up for scrap.[3]
