New Theme Park Ride Site Investigation

Project: New Theme Park Ride, Alton Towers

Client: Alton Towers Resort

As part of the redevelopment of the former Corkscrew site at Alton Towers Theme Park, Arc Environmental Ltd completed a detailed ground investigation for a new theme park ride, codenamed SW6 (Secret Weapon 6).

The works comprised mechanically excavated trial pits and rotary cored boreholes, followed by detailed engineered logging, for the purpose of future ground anchor design.

Other responsibilities – liasing with park staff, main contractor, architects and park officials. Completion of detailed interpretive report.

During completion of these works the exact details of the new theme park ride were kept ‘top secret’. However, Alton Towers later announced the opening of their new ride ‘Thirteen’ on this site, during 2009
