Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

My dad has ridden it since opening year, and Sundaywas the 1st time he heard it, so I thought it was new.

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Forgot to mention this, but has no-one else noticed the most obnoxious new announcement ever. It features someone who sounds like a punk rock fanboy shouting things like “NEMESIS!!!! ENTER THE PIT OF VENGEANCE AT YOUR PERIL!!!!!”

Re: Wicker Man Reviews & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Okay, I think I’ve recovered enough to finally talk about this monster of a ride in depth. Here we go:  Entering Well, just entering the ride area is incredible! As the courtyard was closed due to Scarefest, we had to go round, and as you turn the corner, everything in Mutiny Bay changes. The music ...

Speaking of Walking Dead, there’s no Living Nightmare on there :sus:

Re: Rate the Rollercoasters (2018 Edition)

Just one change since my trip yesterday. Rides which I rode them have a description.  1. Nemesis. Still as butter-smooth and intense as I remember.  2. Wicker Man. If I had to describe this in one word, it would be insanity. Back row is a must at the end of the day.  3. Galactica. Just loads of fun....

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Had a good ride on Galactica yesterday, which was definitely helped by the fact that we cut our waiting time in half by not riding VR and being directed to station 2.

Re: Duel - General Discussion

Rode Duel yesterday, and I think this is an improvement. Things like the new portraits, which are a huge step up from the outdated news story and, in my opinion, the ride music, really drag this ride into the present. Also, one of the more subtle(ish) changes is that, instead of the zombies in the w...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Rode Smiler today, and it’s still kind of rough. However I think that the roughest part is now the inversion on the 1st drop.

Re: The Couch

Probably gonna get fastrack for the end of the day. It’s so good. At the moment, as it’s the only ride I’ve ridden today, it is no. 2 on my favourite coaster list.

Re: The Couch

I just realised that all the major rides at Alton Towers have 1 i in them. Nemesis, Oblivion, Air/Galactica, Rita, Thirteen, The Smiler and Wicker Man. A coincidence, or something else?

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

I’m very small, about 4 foot 11, but I thought Nemesis, last year at least, to be butter smooth, and I was riding in row 7!

Re: The Couch

Well, when I go, it will be one week before one YEAR since I last went, so I’m excited to ride Wicker Man, which will be my 1st wooden coaster, as well as Smiler because the only time I’ve rode it, I thought it was a bit rough and didn’t enjoy it as much as I was expecting. However, since then I’ve ...
