A ROLLERCOASTER ride was in store for over 100 year nine students from Robert Blake Science College as they went on a trip to Alton Towers in Staffordshire.

The purpose of the visit was to kickstart a project in which the students would design, map and market a theme park given a budget.

Visiting Alton Towers gave the students the inspiration they needed to create their own theme park, with the added bonus that they got to go on the roller coasters.

The students really relished the opportunity to visit such an awesome place and acted as excellent ambassadors for the school.
