Six of the best: Alton Towers Air

Robin and Alton Towers' Air
Originally uploaded by athens2004blog.

This is the last of my mammoth six posts today - another ride at Alton Towers. This is one of the newest rides and is meant to replicate the feeling of flying, so you sort of lie forward in your seat, facing down, and then go whizzing off.

And, sure enough, as you hurtle around the loops at a ridiculous speed, facing down, with nothing beneath you except the ground, it feels a) rather like you're flying and b) rather scary!

This was one of our favourite rides of the day. After all the rides, you can buy a picture that they've taken of you on it, and on this one both me and wife had massive grins on our faces.

A top day out, to end a top week of top days out.

If you love roller coasters, you should consider planning a holiday to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, USA. ( They are know as the "Roller Coaster capital of the World" with 18 of the most amazing coasters! They also have music shows, an IMAX theatre, a water park. I know I sound like an advertisement, but it really is the most remarkable place for people who love roller coasters!

Did Robin enjoy any of the rides?

I feel sick just looking at the pictures, never mind reading your reports!

Did you see the gardens at Alton Towers - that's where I used to spend time there, far more gentle.

Also as a child I used to see deer in the New Forest. Your pictures look so tranquil compared to Alton Towers!
Best wishes to all
