Another rollercoaster ride is closed at Alton Towers

By Staff Reporter

Another rollercoaster at Alton Towers has closed after breaking down - a week after a crash at the theme park forced a teenage girl to have her leg amputated.

The Octonauts Rollercoaster Adventure in the CBeebies area of the Staffordshire theme park was evacuated yesterday after a guest became "agitated" when the ride stopped working.

An Alton Towers spokeswoman said: "As a precaution, Alton Towers is now conducting thorough checks of the ride before it reopens to guests."

The Smiler, Oblivion and Enterprise remain closed in the park's X-Sector, while the Sonic Spinball is also shut so "additional safety measures" can be introduced.
