I would generally agree with this.
I really do love Alton Towers, but it frustrates me that a park that offers so many different types of attractions with so much great potential only has one ride that I really think is "outstanding" and that ride was built in 1994.
The majority of the rides at Alton Towers I find to be "very good" but not "outstanding."
Air, Oblivion, Rita, Spinball, Hex, Duel, Ripsaw, Charlie, etc, are rides I really like, but they are all "ride once per visit" attractions for me. Nemesis is the only ride there that I really want more of.
On our 2006 trip we actually left the park for a couple of hours to visit Splash Landings...and had an EXCELLENT time there!
