In 2018, Alton Towers Resort opened the latest addition to their iconic Secret Weapon Canon – Wicker Man. Located on the former site of The Flume, this ground breaking new development was the largest and most anticipated addition to the rides and attractions line-up since The Smiler back in 2013, billed as “the world’s first rollercoaster experience fusing wood and fire”.

TowersTimes brought you all the developments from this exciting project as it happened, from the latest news and plans, to regular construction updates, as we got nearer to being able to experience Secret Weapon 8.
