Vekoma Rides and Drayton Manor management and staff are extremely pleased with the great ride experience and are proud of the enthousiams with which this spectacular opening was received by the guests. Ben 10: Ultimate Mission rollercoaster is the first of its kind in Europe, launching riders forwards on their first tour of the 180m track, hitting speeds of 55kph and a g-force of 3, before returning travelling backwards along the same route.’

Ben 10 is a popular children’s program broadcast on Cartoon Network, which follows the adventures of 10-year-old Ben Tennyson, who is able to turn into a variety of alien superheroes, each with unique powers, thanks to his mysterious Omnitrix watch. Info about the Ben 10 licensing deal here.
