Welcome to the future! In 3016 Forbidden Valley was chosen as the new home for a new space port operated by Galactica - The Universe’s first spaceflight voyager.
Partnering with Air Space Technologies to develop a multi-dimensional portal using the Resort’s iconic flying coaster as the propulsion device, Galactica will send passengers soaring through interstellar space for the first time in history, providing unrivalled access to the limitless wonders of space as never experienced before.
Once on-board the Galactica Craft, you’ll put on your virtual reality Visor. A first of its generation on a rollercoaster, it’s ultra-light so you’ll hardly feel like you’re wearing anything. It will transform a thrilling ride into something entirely out of this world.
In a split-second, your world will be altered with sophisticated virtual reality technology that allows full immersion in your surroundings, the wonders of space.
Eve (your Onboard Artificial Intelligence System) will be guiding you through your spaceflight.
The Launch Portal is the circular, multi dimensional gateway. Galactinauts will be propelled through the Launch Portal before embarking on their exploration in the wonders of space.
Sitting proudly, the Launch Portal creates a prominent landmark in the surroundings of the Forbidden Valley at ALTON TOWERS Resort, marking the Gateway from Earth to the Universe.
