Eldritch Abomination: Amusement Parks
Eldritch Abominations in amusement park rides.
- The Nemesis roller coaster at Alton Towers amusement park in the UK is themed around an Eldritch Abomination (being the titular Nemesis). In a promotional comic released to advertise the ride, said creature even had its own cult (with its own Tome of Eldritch Lore).
- They even created a backstory: Nemesis comes from another dimension, a dimension beyond our imagination. There are theories, and then there is the legend... Beneath the ground at Alton Towers, something strange and horrible lurked: a creature put on the Earth 2 million years ago. The creature was disturbed during maintenance work on one of the other rides in Forbidden Valley. The creature, angry at being discovered, caused havoc, ripping up trees and buildings, sending them hurtling skyward. A security silence fell over Alton Towers as historians, archaeologists, and the Ministry of Defence nervously began some serious investigations. What they discovered was Nemesis. It had to be controlled - 250 tonnes of steel and 200 men pinned down Nemesis. The steel holding down the monster was twisted and bent into unusual shapes - the steel was the roller coaster track thrill seekers ride today - Nemesis.
- And now they're introducing Nemesis: Sub-terra. All we know is that it explores beneath the foundations of Nemesis... and many tentacles are in evidence...
