  • Corkscrew désignait les montagnes russes en métal du parc Alton Towers dans le Staffordshire, au Royaume-Uni ouvertes du 4 avril 1980 au 9 novembre 2008. Il s'agissait des montagnes russes les plus anciennes du parc et parmi les plus anciennes de Grande-Bretagne. Elles furent un des premières montagnes russes avec deux loopings consécutifs et les premières en Grande-Bretagne. Cependant pendant les dernières années de son fonctionnement, le manège devenait notoire pour tirer brusquement les têtes et les cous des passagers dans les fermes appui-têtes. Les passagers se plaignaient souvent de douleurs dans le cou.En octobre 2008, Alton Towers a confirmé que le manège devait être démantelé à fin de la saison 2008. Le parc a organisé un événement spécial en son honneur le 9 novembre 2008, lors duquel le Corkscrew a effectué son dernier tour. Sur la place qu'occupait Corkscrew a été construit le nouveau parcours de montagnes russes Thirteen.
  • Corkscrew was a steel roller coaster manufactured by Vekoma of the Netherlands. The coaster was located in the Ug Land area of Alton Towers in Staffordshire, England. It was the park's oldest ride and is considered the greatest factor in promoting the new theme park to the British public. It was one of the first double-inverting coasters in Europe (the first in the UK) - so received much publicity and avid popularity in the 1980s. Waiting times for the ride frequently reached 6–9 hours during the first few months of operation at Alton Towers, and the park would often be forced to close early as it found itself swamped with visitors long before the evening ever came.In October 2008, Alton Towers confirmed that the ride was to be dismantled at the end of the 2008 season, to make room for the 2010 attraction Thirteen, then named Secret Weapon 6. On 9 November 2008 the park held a special event in honour of the attraction in which the Corkscrew completed the final circuit of its 730 m track. The official date for the last day in regular service was 2 November 2008 - the last day of the season. One of the coaster's cars were put up for sale on eBay. The car was sold on 15 December 2008 for £7,200 to which these funds went to good causes. Alton Towers retained the famous corkscrew inversions which were refurbished and placed as an artwork feature in the entrance plaza.The opening title sequence used by The ITV Chart Show between January 1989 and November 1991 was created by digitally rotoscoping footage of the Corkscrew. A photograph of the Corkscrew was used on the cover of the 1991 single Everybody in the Place by The Prodigy
