Alton Towers Resort Begin Skyride Testing
Testing has begun on the Skyride at the Alton Towers Resort. Skyride is a Cable-car transportation system that takes guests back and forth between Towers Street, Forbidden Valley and the Dark Forest/Cloud Cuckoo Land area.
Skyride closed back in June, as Alton Towers worked on replacing the cable upon which the cars travel. This meant that travelling between the parks areas required a rather long walk.
It has now, however, been confirmed by TowersTimes that a Gondola has been seen travelling between Towers Street and Forbidden Valley.¬† Though still closed to guests, it is expected that Skyride will open soon.
