from age, lack of interest, or simply because of the need
for space, some attractions and rides are retired from service,
never to be seen again. Indeed many people may one year have
the time of their life on a rollercoaster, only to return
the following year only to find an overgrown piece of fenced
off land. The rides and other attractions featured will forever
live in childhood memory for those lucky enough to catch them
for their brief stay at the park.
A big thank you
to Alton Towers, Penguin Books, Sunflower Books, Brian Jones
and John Phillips for the massive amount of help they have
given in producing this part of the web site.
