A roller coaster was planned to open at Alton Towers for the 1991 season. It was to be a suspended roller coaster built by Schwarzkopf in the area beside Corkscrew that would eventually become home to Thirteen. The project was shelved when Tussauds took over the park, as it wasn't in keeping with their vision for Alton Towers.

Design[edit]

The ride would have had a layout somewhat similar to Lisebergbanan at Liseberg in Sweden. The ride featured three lift hills, two of which ran parallel to each other, like a racing roller coaster. If it had opened, it would have probably have been the longest steel coaster in the world until the opening of Ultimate at Lightwater Valley in 1992.

It was to be built in the section currently occupied by Nemesis.
