Is duel at Alton towers scary?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Really that depends on the person. It is marketed as a Family Ride, so a family should be alright. I would really recommend riders are 8+, though.

My personal opinion is that it's a great Family Ride, and me and my family always find it hilarious going round shooting ghouls.

It may seem scary but really is a fun ride!

Asked by Wiki User

It depends on the service you use. A quick check on 'thetrainline' website listed the stops for the 08:00 departure this morning (15th Sept 2012) as... Doncaster, Newark North Gate, Grantham then London Kings Cross.

Some services only stop at Stevenage before arriving at Kings Cross. As I said - it depends on the service as to which stops it makes.
