Today, Alton Towers Resort have announced that their classic Bolliger & Mabillard roller coaster formally known as Nemesis, will re-open as Nemesis Reborn in just a few short weeks.. But it’s NOT the 30th March as I originally thought..

Alton Towers Resort have today announced via a press release the date that Nemesis Reborn (formally Nemesis) will re-open, and it seems there has been some creepy shenanigans close to the Staffordshire based resort. The giant, blazing eye of Alton Towers’ Nemesis creature has been captured at one of the UK’s most notorious alien hotspots at Cannock Chase in Staffordshire, in some rather creepy drone footage released by the park..

The video clearly doesn’t give any dates away.. but, thankfully, the Press Release DOES!

When will Nemesis Reborn at Alton Towers Open?

The answer is 16th March 2024 – from that day forward, guests will be able to fly around the newly replaced 250-tonne, 716 metre track in brand new trains, and a modern control system. With extensive, new, immersive elements will propel visitors into this compelling new narrative from the moment they set foot in the resort’s Forbidden Valley.

What else does the Press Release say?

That’s a very good question – as Alton Towers have gone to so much trouble capturing a huge eye out in Cannock Chase, we probably shouldn’t just glean the relevant date and move on..

The giant, blazing eye of Alton Towers’ Nemesis creature casts a spine-tingling glow at one of the UK’s most notorious alien hotspots.

Cannock Chase in Staffordshire has been a hotbed of unexplained alien activity since the 1980s.

The appearance of the floating seven-metre-wide eye heralds the hugely anticipated opening of Nemesis Reborn, which Alton Towers Resort can today officially confirm, will take place on March 16.

Breathtaking drone footage and images released today showed the other-worldly scene at sunrise.

Nemesis is returning following an extensive transformation of the iconic ride, that has come to be revered by millions of thrill-seekers since its launch three decades ago.

Now known as Nemesis Reborn, part of the transformation has seen the entire 250-tonne, 716-metre-long track replaced as well as a complete overhaul of the beast which gives the ride its name.

The beast’s eye, ringed by razor-sharp teeth, is brought vividly to life through state-of-the-art audio visual technology – demonstrating its evolution into a predator.

Imprisoned underground for much of the past three decades by a shadowy organisation known as The Phalanx, it is now free and out to wreak vengeance.

Extensive, new, immersive elements will propel visitors into this compelling new narrative from the moment they set foot in the resort’s Forbidden Valley.

Alien activity has long been synonymous with Cannock Chase, located on the doorstep of Alton Towers in the Staffordshire countryside.

The Ministry Of Defence has officially investigated dozens of reports of unexplained activity and strange lights in the area.

Incidents include school children who claim to have witnessed an extra-terrestrial figure with a ‘lemon-shaped’ head and a series of triangle shapes seen in the sky.

On its opening in 1994 Nemesis was crowned Europe’s first inverted rollercoaster and has gone on to develop a cult status amongst thrill seekers globally.

Millions of fans from around the world have visited the Staffordshire theme park to experience the thrilling 3.5 G-force, as the ride dangled thrillseekers along numerous twists and turns at speeds of up to 50mph.

Bianca Sammut, Divisional Director at Alton Towers Resort, said: “Throughout its first 30 years, Nemesis captured the imagination of millions of thrill seekers from around the globe. It’s been an astonishing privilege to bring this truly iconic ride into the 21st century. We’ve retained its essential DNA, while harnessing the most state-of-the-art technology and immersive storytelling techniques to ensure it will retain its status as a truly unrivalled rollercoaster experience for a whole new generation. And from March 16, those brave enough will be able to experience for themselves the truly awesome power of Nemesis Reborn.”

Alton Towers Press Release – 21/2/24

I’m so excited to have Nemesis back in the form of Nemesis Reborn – it wasn’t the same at the park last year, when Forbidden Valley was lacking the ‘roar’ of this incredible ride. I really hope to get there for opening day and see everything Alton Towers have been up to. It seems they have done similar to Nemesis that they did with the Curse at Alton Manor, and really gone to town with the refurbishment, meaning the ride could stay around for another 30 years! Who knows, maybe I’ll take my grandchildren on it in the next 30 years!

Of course, ensure you keep an eye here for any trip reports, or check out my YouTube Channel for more content, as I imagine I will be doing a few trips up the motorway to Alton Towers this year!
