After causing a stir on their Facebook page after announcing that the new for 2010 ultimate thrill ride ‘Th13teen’ would be closed today on Friday 13th, it seems Alton Towers Resort has come up with another plan to keep the punters happy and avoid any superstitious worries.

Fourteen (or is that Fou13teen?) debuts on Friday 13th for one very special day only. That’s right – ‘Th13teen’ has become ‘Fourteen’ instead for all those who have ‘friggatriskaidekaphobia’, and may be thinking about taking a ride today.

Guests can also enjoy limited edition ‘Fourteen’ merchandise available from the ride shop for today only.

Why is Friday the 13th such a concern for some? Check out the Wikipedia article for a full explanation.
