Detailed Information

What was it?


This was one of Alton Towers' classic children's rides, which had been in the park ever since the introduction of the long gone Adventure Land 4-11 that used to reside by the side of old Talbot Street.

It had many titles over the years, including Mini-Flier and Ug Bugs. It was eventually removed to make room for other attractions in Cloud Cuckoo Land.

The ride consisted of several cars which were attached to a central hub. This hub revolved and during the ride children could control the height of their car by means of a lever.
