Camelot, but other than that (since Camelot's not opening next season), Blackpool Pleasure Beach :)
For the technically minded it is a multi-inversion suspended rollercoaster, but for the rest of you it's just designed to scare you sh*tless :P

Chessington. Thorpe Park is just a little further away (about 30 min). Love being in London. :)

Alton Towers is a good 4 hours away though... :(

My distance chart!

Chessington: 54 mins
Adventure Island(Southend): 59mins
Legoland Windsor:70mins
Thorpe Park: 73mins
Alton Towers: 179mins
Blackpool Pleasure Beach:248mins
Being number two is just being the first to lose.

My nearest Theme Park is Alton Towers! It takes me like 15-20 minutes to get there! And I live like 2 or maybe 3 hours away from Blackpool Pleasure Beach! :)

LightWater Valley I think is my closest.

I'm not overly sure as I've not been for years.

I'm an hour and a half from FlamingoLand

2hours for Alton Towers

4 and a half for Thorpe and Chessington.
