New theme park ride 'too scary' for children under 12

People on a rollercoaster

A new ride at Alton Towers theme park has been described as "too scary" for children under 12.

It's the first time a theme park ride has been given an age rating by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), which normally gives ratings to movies and games.

The Nemesis Sub-Terra ride - which runs completely in the dark - has been given a 12A age rating.

It's only an advisory rating, but Alton Towers say they will stick to it.
