The huge arena of ups, downs, and loop the loops earned the accolade of the British Travel Awards' Best Theme Park 2011, so make sure to pay a visit to each themed zone. New for 2012 is the Nemesis Sub-Terra, an underground attraction that takes guests to the deepest, darkest location of the Theme Park.
