I think Oblivion is
fantastic but there is 2 major problems: not long enough & it shows
you where you are falling - it would be better if it didn't stop!
A marvellous ride but only
if you sit in the front row of the two row carriages. From the front you
are looking directly down the hole from which you are momentarily
suspended. 5/5 in the front row but just 2/5 in the back row.
took a while for me to build up the courage to let go. The more I ride
it though, the more I expect, and it just doesn't deliver anymore;
perhaps I am finding it is getting a bit boring. It is still a good ride
from the public's point of view, but I think I have ridden it enough for
It's difficult to judge this ride
without thinking of what else Alton could have done with £15 million.
Judging it purely as a free-fall machine, it is by far the best. A ride
on Oblivion lasts longer than Apocalypse, features a better drop, and is
by far the more enjoyable. OK, it's still short by roller coaster
standards, but the ride does its job brilliantly.
The first couple of rides
of the day are always excellent, but then its a little too predictable -
you know exactly when its going to drop. It'd be much better if the
length of the wait at the top was random
I always forget how good the drop on
Oblivion actually is. The first go ALWAYS takes my breath away and
leaves me running round for more! I know people don't like this ride but
it is GREAT fun and I'd certainly like one in my back garden!
After several rides of
Oblivion, I would have to say that it still holds the excitement like
the first ride. However the quickness of the ride could put me off
with queues sometimes stretching as long as 3 hours. My friends all
say that it's ace but personally as much as I love it you really can't
beat Nemesis and Apocalypse.
Oblivion does it for me every time! I went to Alton
Towers with a mate not long back and we spent most of the day in X
Sector, we rode Oblivion 16 times - off and straight back on - non
stop. We couldn't help but feel disappointed when it came to closer
time for the park! I give this ride a FULL 5/5 and I think it gets
better every time!
have only visited Alton Towers twice since the ride opened. The First
time I could not find the end of the queue for Oblivion. This time, I
went to it, got in the queue, and loved every second of the ride. It
is the best ride in the park - easily.
ride has started to lose its touch after 5 rides. BUT still an amazing
ride if you donít go to Alton Towers very often. Not in the same
league as Nemesis but it is a must if you visit Alton
Personally I think this
ride is WICKED! The drop quite literally always takes my breath away!
Its the ultimate rush! LOVE IT!
I think it is brilliant and love it. It really gets your heart
racing and it is so exciting. I have been on it loads of times and
intend to go on it a lot more in the future.
Best Coaster in the World!
110kp/h, 60m vertical drop, 4.5G. What more could you want?
Short and sweet and full
of power... The drop looks good even if most of it is underground... The
mist around the hole only seems to be on when somebody remembers to turn
the tap but adds a great effect to the ride... The stall over the drop
is a fantastic way to build up the intensity of the ride at the last
moment... Unfortunately these cars aren't able to perform inversions but
would have been nice to use up some of the speed with a helix or
something.. but as a quick dramatic ride it's a show stopper !!
Great coaster. On drop I
felt like I was floating in seat - I think I was as I'm young and not
built up yet... there's a lot of empty space in restraints - this adds
to the excitement. The jolt when the coaster pauses at top throws me
forward and every time as it feels like I'm going to fall out. Short,
A good addition to the
park. With slightly bland theming this ride lacks a little. It is also a
bit too short but is worth going on for the drop. It has large capacity
so queues are not long.
Before I went on this
ride, I wasn't sure what it would be like, as this was the first roller coaster
I have ever been on (what a choice huh). Anyway, after going on
Oblivion, I wanted more of the excitement I got from it. It really is
the best ride ever!!!
Great ride. When I think
about the drop that's not really the scary part, neither is the three
seconds tiltering over the edge. The worst part for me is thinking about
it. When I think about it even if I'm 360 miles away I get a feeling in
my stomach - when I'm at Alton Towers I feel nothing. Excellent ride. I
like the way Alton Towers put video clips in the queues. Excellent
expecting great things to come to Alton Towers in a few years. Oblivion
is the ride I would queue longest for.
Very good! Best ride there
although it is only a one trick pony! Great suspense, great, great,
and Gentlemen! I have been to Alton Towers many a time and for the first
time in my life I rode the BEAST. That is the Oblivion! At first I was
extremely scared in the queue, and it seemed to take long to get to the
top. But the hanging of the drop took my breath away!! If you go to
Alton Towers you would be mad to miss the Oblivion!! And if you don't
like rides, just go on it anyway. It gives you a sense of successfulness
once you have completed this awesome ride.
