Oblivion opened in March 1998.  As part of its arrival, the surrounding area of Alton Towers received a new theme.   The Fantasy World section of the park had a fairground-like theme, but that was replaced by a more sinister and foreboding theme, and the area was renamed X-Sector.  The space around the vertical drop allows bystanders a great view of the ride's signature plunge.
