Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Sky-Ride, a aerial tram at Alton Towers.
Written by Daniel Cernuschi
Twelve-person ski resort-style gondolas carry you between Towers Street (the main entrance), Forbidden Valley and Ug Land.
Beware, this ride often stops half way to make up time for other passengers on other cars setting off.
The ride is closed for the 2009 season due to another fire, this time destroying the Cloud Cuckoo Land station. The cause of the fire was an electrical fault.
