In 1984 Alton Towers opened a new indoor roller coaster known as the Black Hole. The ride would then continue to operate at the theme park until 2005. In this video I take a look back at the history of this Alton Towers classic, along with sharing my memories from riding the Black Hole. I also take a look at the ride now and see how it compares to when it operated at Alton Towers!

This video is part of our Remembering Rides series here on Theme Park Worldwide. In this series of videos I'll be talking all about a variety of rides, attractions and theme parks that are no longer with us. I'll also be looking into the history of these attractions along with sharing my favourite memories!
