Depends what you like really, ive been to both and theyve got some awesome rides
AT - oblivion, rita queen of speed, air, nemisis, ripsaw, some thing where you go about in a car thing and shoot zombies with lazer tag guns, ohh and that new ride 13
Thorpe park - this fvck off log fume thats like 75-100ft high think its called tidal wave, and boy does it make a hell of a wave when you get to the bottom! Collossus (world first 10 loop rollercoaster) river rapids, no way out (backwards in the dark roller coaster) and the new saw ride which looks nuts!
Thats allni can think off with the rides but in terms of awesome ness id say thorpe park cause most of alton towers roller coasters are the same, airs like nemisis except the leg dangling cart tilts like your flying, rita just goes fast theres no loops etc
Where as thorpe parks rides have more excitement, collossus has 10 fvcking loops! The saw one makes you think your going to get chopped up based on the advert, no way out as i said goes backwards and its in the dark!
Alton towers is way to spread out, you spend all day walking. Rides at thorpe park are better....saw beats oblivion.......stealth beats rita.......both got nemesis........air is good but thorpe park has collosus which is good.
Zombie laser thing a alton towers was ****. We went on fright night and it didnt even work. Alton towers often has breakdowns
Both parks have their fair share of thrill rides so IMO it comes down to value for money and how many rides you can get on in one day, which is thorpe park.
Oh and I live in the south east so it doesn't take a day worth of driving to get there!!
I hadn't been to alton towers in over ten years so not sure how new it was but they have a single riders queuing system now where you can get on rides quicker if you dont mind getting split up
I went with the missus and after a bit we decided to start going on as single riders to avoid queuing for 9+ minutes (as we did for nemesis possibly wont help with your lad but the rides where you go on in 4's (nemesis) are great for this
to be honest 3 of the rides did temporarily break down when we was there and 13 is w**k
