I have two. The Smiler because it is intense, and Nemesis because it is a enthusiasts' favourite.

Before I post what my favourite ride is I would just like to introduce myself.

My Name is Luke Houldsworth an avid enthusiast travel all over the UK and Europe to go on rides, i would just like to say thank you to Towers Times for bringing us so close to Alton towers and now to Thorpe and the south of the UK. i enjoy all the footage and follow every day on Facebook so thank you!.

My favourite ride is Nemesis at Alton towers, intense speed's close to the ground flying at insane G-forces nothing like it.
Rollercoasters are for life not for a season.

If we're talking Alton Towers specific then it's Nemesis!

My favourite roller coaster in the UK is The Smiler
My favourite U.S. roller coaster is The Hulk at UIOA
The best wet ride i have ever been on is Dudley Doo Rights Rip Saw Falls,also at UIOA. You get soaked through from head to toe :lol
My favourite flat ride is Flip Flop at Flamingo Land. Its swings you really high and you get lifted out of your seat so much,its unreal.
The best ride i have ever been on is,Harry Potter and The Forbidden Journey. Its just simpy awesome :P

Today I have been on Rita and Thirteen for the first time, my last time at ATR was my first time on Nemesis and Air (my first time in ATR in 20 years was this Feb half term, so I have a LOT of catching up to do!!).

In my limited experience, Thirteen is my favourite - I love the traditional coaster feel of the start, and the drop and backwards bit at the end is icing on the cake - I just wish it lasted about 3 times as long!!

My favourite rollercoaster is nemesis without a doubt, so intense and the rush you the get is fabulous, never felt anything like it.
My favourite Flat ride probably has to be cliffhanger at flamingo land, admittedly it was much better when it ran on combo mode, (does anyone know why they don't do this anymore?)

My favourite ride at Alton is The Smiler, to an extent I have become a bit obsessive.
At Thorpe Park it is close between The Swarm and Saw.

No i wasn't saying that. I was suggesting that why congo river rapids is what i meant. You get wet and for a girl that isn't the best thing in the world. I love it though because i am more of a tomboy that a girly girl. I will send some pics of me at alton towers on a different topic :D

Favourite coaster: El Toro @ SFGA
Favourite flat/dark ride is either Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey or the newly revamped HD Spiderman, both at UIoA.

If we're talking Alton specific then Nemmy wins hands down.
