In 1991 the Tri-Star replaced the 4 Man Bob in Talbot Street although it didn’t spend long at Alton Towers.
Location: Talbot Street / Festival Park
Opening Year: 1991
Closing Year: 1992
Called the Tri-star because of its three arms, it was a cross between the Enterprise and Turbo Star, with passengers sitting in cars, which swung outwards, all attached to a central arm which lifted up, similar to Enterprise.
After one season on Talbot Street the ride then moved to Festival Park, where it sat alongside the Enterprise for just one season. It was removed from the park at the end of 1992.
