Virtual Towers Online  is a realistic, "to-scale" exact replica of the Alton Towers theme park. It is designed to be as close to realism as possible using architectual plans and thousands of photo references. The end goal is to have a multi player environment where users from all over the world can digitally interact with each other throughout the entire park.

What's more is that it is designed to have a freeroam mode and and a career mode where users can actually take roles within the park such as physically controlling rides using the ride control panels as a ride operater.

Can we go out of bounds in next update?

does the nemesis video on Facebook mean the update is on Christmas Day 

@aVirtualTowersOnline can you add this game to steam? it would be so cool if i could download the game on steam and i won't have to go back to stitch and wait hours for the game to download

so i got this game a few months ago, the download kept on going longer and longer up to 400 hours i don't know why. I also experienced loads of lag even though i had everything that the game required me to have, the screen was glitchy and the game looks good but the overall experience i didn't like, i am now re-installing it and i am hoping for the best.

I hope the next person that installs the game will have a fun tme playing this game and won't experience lag and a glitchy screen.

Is the update still likely to come out this Year?

chrismas day

What month will the new update be released

If you are not sure again  please can i have a rough release update

All update info is more up to date on the discord server and Facebook.. Due to having a hack to the twitter account demanding we release the update or they will, we held off as do not take demands from anyone so blame them for the lack of release as it was going to be out at the start of November. 


When will we get Galactica? 

is eneterprise going?

 because the real news says its not really going to be fixed

As the way we are building the project is towers at its best, and missed rides are to be kept, enterprise for now will be staying in ours, unless some amazing new ride is put in its place... Unlike ripsaws replacement 

thanks dude!

Wow, vto has good moderators :)

virtual towers can you link your discord server

Is nemesis released

By the end of the year, check Facebook or discord for actual release. 

I had forgotten that I had browser bookmarked the homepage and came across it yesterday and wow I am glad I did, huge file at 18+ Gb but to be expected and larger with updates. I will make smaller donations over a period.

the next big update coming soon will be less than half the size for the download, but actually include more, be better quality, more polished and run better... the update will be stand alone at first to make people see it before pushing to itch, as it has been quite a while since an update was pushed, dont want to mess it up

that will affects me and my 2fps gameplay


I can't access it. I have a 32gb usb that I want Virtual towers online into it but it says it doesn't have any disk space, I'm clueless what to do so now I need help

why would you be putting it onto a 32gb usb drive? also what structure is the drive formatted in (ntfs / fat32)

1st question: to be honest I don't know why

2nd question: It's a fat32

Thanks for the reply =D

That will be why, fat 32 doesn't support single files over 4gb

oh............ thanks!

edit: I had to install it into the USB C drive (its built into it)

I love how realistic the game looks well done

I cannot get access to Nemesis and Galactica

As you shouldn't... As they are not released yet, like a lot of the park isn't in this release.

Just wondering how to unlock the VR mode and if there will ever be any more updates

VR is something that is not going to be a feature for a while, its a place holder... updates yes will come, check facebook page and discord for all progress. new update will be coming this year although it will be a stand alone update prio to being pushed to here.

Awesome thanks

very good game 10/10


I downloaded this for the first time today and for some reason it is not active and needs to be updated. Checked if it needed to be updated and it is up to date. Is there an issue?

There is an on going issue with itch and the page name change that has effected code left in the game, just dismiss it and it will work.

thanks for the reply. But it doesn't have a dismiss option. Please find image below. This is the only thing I'm getting


im getting this as well


some get the dismissale bug, some get this bug... stupidly due to bad programming, you can actually still use the menu in the background, if you move the mouse to where it looks like its the 2nd box, then the red middle big box, you will be able to play as this is going to story mode and then play.

I'm Really Sorry for bothering you @virtual towers online, but I am still having the same issue tried the above advice but it won't let me play

it was amazing

looks cool


also right when i clicked download i knew this had a lot of content since most itch games are a couple hundred megabytes THIS IS 18 GIGS

Installing now!

I have a problem once i have clicked start new story mode it loads for a bit then it stops and i am stuck on a screen withe a blue wall saying welcome to Alton towers

I am a big coaster lover so I hope this is great

I have. watched @screwyloops play the game and it looks preety awesome

i died looking at the memory size-- like-- 18GB-- gosh im dead-- but still im downloading this anyways XD

downloaded it yet?

Yep its dowloaded! It was worth it :D

also did u see the x sector secret? There is a tunnel to the pergola! 

Oh I figured it out now

why is the install button not on the screen. There is no option to install.

How do you move around?

W,A,S,D on the keyboard  to walk around, E to enter the ride seats.

 I have a problem I start the game up  it loading screen for a few seconds then it kicks me out  is it going to get  fixed soon i love this game its awesome and will it come to vr that would be wicked.


 I have a problem. I start the game it puts me in the loading screen for 2 seconds then it kicks me out.

it says failed to open descriptor file. is that common?

Great effort all round, and I can't wait to see more


Is there a possibility that it could come to oculus quest 2 in the future?


Can anyone help? Game crashes and closes once I try loading up story mode, or am I doing something wrong? 


What PC specs are recommended for smooth gameplay?

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • Processor: Quad-core Intel or AMD, 2.5 GHz or faster
  • RAM: 4 GB RAM (8 GB RAM Recommended)
  • Video Card/DirectX Version: DirectX 11 or DirectX 12 compatible graphics card
  • Memory: 3GB
    That is what I would say.

dfk mate


What do you recommend pc wise for the best experience?

It wont save the game and im on the original version.


Will the devs add vr support please?

We do plan to add it in the future, at this time we are concentrating on the majority of the game. Hopefully when the time comes to add VR support we will all have access to VR ourselves as this is a key element to VR development :)

Thank you for your response. I have a motion platform simulator and I was wondering if you could send the telemetry so that our simulators can mimic the movements.
