Retired Rides : Nickelodeon:
Outta Control is one of Alton Towers short lived attractions.
Opened in 1997 in Cred Street, the attraction involved groups
of children, accompanied by their parents. In groups of 20
to 30 people, you were escorted into a room where you were
invited to pretty much make as much noise as you wanted. Following
this was another room full of things which when moved or squeezed,
would make noises. After moving into the next area, you were
given a ball and invited to 'score' into a toilet.
In the next
room, your shadow would freeze itself to the wall, done by
using light reactive paint on the walls. The shadow would
soon fade away, once the light fell onto it again. Next, the
adults and children went their seperate ways, with the children
going across a bridge, then down a slide while the adults
watched from below.
followed, including an area where youre face would be superimposed
onto the Nickelodeon characters. Here photographs would be
also taken. After a short film about the making of cartoons,
you were shown the highlights of your experience in the attraction,
as the whole place was full of hidden cameras following your
every move. You would then exit through the Slurp 'N' Burp
was closed at the end of the 1998 season.
