March Opening Planned For "Nemesis: Sub-Terra" Dark Ride at Alton Towers

The Los Angeles Times reports on the new dark ride sharing a backstory with the Nemesis rollercoaster:

"Construction has already begun on the Nemesis: Sub-Terra building, which will descend two stories below ground.

"Set to open March 24, the new attraction is expected to be built by ABC Rides of Switzerland, which created the Extremis indoor special effects drop tower at London Dungeons (also run by Merlin Entertainment, parent company of Alton Towers).

"A prototype Vertical Dark Ride concept by ABC Rides features a central drop tower with benches that rotate and stop at animated scenes at various levels inside a themed building."
