Alton Towers' Rita renamed Camilla for a day

Posted Thursday, April 7, 2005 10:04 AM | Contributed by supermandl

Alton Towers has decided to call its curiously-named ride Rita - Queen of Speed, Camilla - Queen of Speed. On Saturday all the signs will be changed to show the new name and a special TV advert has been made to be broadcast on the day too, all in honor of the royal wedding. The next day they'll be changed back.

There's no way I'm riding Camilla, front or rear!

Sawblade5's avatar I wonder if the marketing department for Alton Towers is ran by ARN&R. They both seem to be as crazy as each other.

I was wondering the same thing, Bill. Nobody seems to be able to dig up an answer.
