Alton Towers has launched a TV advertising campaign for its two new attractions for 2012, Nemesis Sub-Terra and Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs – The 4-D Experience.
Both new additions are due to open on March 24, 2012, at the start of Alton Towers' 2012 season. The TV adverts, embedded below, feature the In the Hall of The Mountain King tune that has accompanied many promotional campaigns for the park in the past, and a limited amount of teaser footage for the attractions.
The first advert is for Nemesis Sub-Terra, which will feature a backstory based around the alien that lends its name to the nearby Nemesis roller coaster. The nature of the ride itself is yet to be confirmed, but it is believed to be a miniature drop tower similar to Extremis at The London Dungeon.
Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs – The 4-D Experience will be aimed at a younger audience, and will be hosted in the Cloud Cuckoo Land Theatre. The film is based on updated footage from the third film in the Ice Age trilogy, and will be the centrepiece of a small new sub-land.
Theme Park Tourist will feature in-depth reviews of Nemesis Sub-Terra and Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs – The 4-D Experience soon after the attractions open to the public.
You can keep up to date with the latest confirmed and rumored opening dates for new attractions through Theme Park Tourist's "New Attraction Watch" section, and by signing up for our weekly newsletter.
