She’s fast, furious and fun and you could own a seat on her. Alton Towers’ favourite ride, Rita – Queen of Speed is up for grabs. She raced into the history books last year, with her awesome speed (0-60mph in 2.5 seconds) and this year she’s inviting all petrol heads, speed queens and racy riders to buy into the hottest seats in town!

This seat of your pants, limited offer, allows anyone to own a named seat on Rita for the whole season, which includes an annual pass* to Alton Towers, priority access to use the seat as often as possible**, a ride photograph and a souvenir t-shirt from your first visit. A percentage of the £200 cost will be donated to the NSCPCC.

Andy Hine, Chairman of the Rollercoaster Club of Great Britain, is the first to nab a seat. “Rita, the ride, is the best example of a launch coaster in this country and really gives you an adrenaline rush that leaves you shaken and stirred! I, for one, will be using my seat as much as possible this season.”

Speed is of the essence to secure a seat as only 32 exist. To register interest, or for further info, send an email to ritaseat@alton-towers.co.uk. (emails will be replied to in date order)
