Attraction History

Enterprise Mid Ride

First introduced to the park in 1984 before the days of X-Sector, Enterprise has stood thrilling and entertaining the masses for nearly 3 decades. It originally resided in Festival Park (Currently the Dark Forest) alongside other favourites including The Corkscrew. 

In 1998 however, Alton Towers developed their worlds first vertical drop roller coaster Oblivion. Enterprise was deemed a worthy support ride to fit in the new "X-Sector" and it has remained there ever since.

For the 2013 season Enterprise received extensive maintenance work. As well as the usual closed season maintenance which takes place each year, the ride had several components replaced with newer parts to ensure it looks great alongside The Smiler.
