Alton Towers is set to crown the winner of its King of Coasters competition on Monday August 29th, a bank holiday in Great Britain.

Fans can vote for Alton Towers 'King of Coasters' up until Sunday August 28th and every voter will be entitled to purchase a discounted £25 ticket for the day of the event, which is set to feature "a red carpet and other majestic shenanigans" according to an Alton Towers press release.

Over 300,000 people have voted for the coaster they consider their favourite at the park, with Nemesis, Air, Thirteen, Oblivion and Rita all in contention to be crowed the 'King of Coasters' at the Staffordshire resort.

As an added incentive to visit the park, the first one hundred guests who turn up wearing a crown will be allowed into the park for free for the whole day.

C'mon Oblivion! The world's first vertical drop coaster! Best coaster in the UK by far, in fact - still better than anything the US, or any other country has come up with! 'Don't Look Down'
