Nemesis was not available yesterday morning, to the extent at the path was blocked off to force customers down the lower path to Galactica.

It went down on Monday evening, quite early, and the staff seemed to be aware that it would not return for the rest of that night, as they told us to use our fast tracks for it elsewhere. Wonder what has happened to Nemmie?

Apparently there was a loud bang half way around.  What it was that caused the bang, I don't know.  Some one describe it as if a mobile phone hit the carriage, but could they said they could be wrong.

oh dear, the mind wanders... loud bang, the area closed the next day so no public can see any work being carried out... I don’t think a loose item would close it off for too long, would it? I mean a phone is more dangerous to riders than the ride surely, a quick check of the impact area would reveal “Nemmie 1 V 0 Phone” surely. 

Does anybody know if it has reopened yet? 3 scarefest visits and I’ve still not managed a night ride on Nemmie yet this year :(

Nemesis
Ride the twists and turns of Nemesis, as it races past the rocks and rivers of Forbidden Valley. Inverted on the track, it corkscrews, spins and races over the twisted steel track, making it one of the most heart-pounding, exciting and exhilarating rides you will ever experience!

With the closed season upon us, how would you review Nemesis at the Alton Towers Resort?

Nemesis is still one of the strongest attractions at the resort and is ageing beautifully, especially when you consider she is 25 years old this year.

It’s not my top coaster at Towers, but there aren’t many experiences that can top a back row, outside right seat ride in the dark, it really is something else.

This is still my favourite coaster I’ve ever ridden. It’s sheer intensity is unmatched by any coaster in the UK, and the way it stays low to the ground proves for many footchoppers, which I don’t think modern inverts utilise.

Doesn't disappoint. :)

Would be awesome to get an evening hotel ERT on it, as a hotel perk for the non-CBeebies Land focused guests.

It is a shame that they didn't utalise the 'Golden Triangle' scheme, making use of Nemesis and Galactica, especially during the summer months :/

I've found Nemesis to be quite tame this season. Not sure why. Its also a shame that the back row is still restricted to disabled pass but I understand their thinking.
I tried front row for the first time in April. Unfortunately it didn't live up to the hype and got off thinking 'meh'

If you go on a very quiet day, the fast track gate is closed, and they send fast tracks to the exit, so you can get a back row ride... May cost a bluey, but it’s worth it for that back row ride.

I find Nemmy so forceful these days that it's unpleasant for me anywhere further back than the middle! Especially if it's later than about mid day.

I generally now will only ride if I am with people who will wait for the front, I really love seeing everything whip past and find that the most enjoyable ride, but because general consensus is that the back is best, I think I only rode once last season.

I do agree with you Justin about the golden triangle, and there's nothing comparable to standing in the valley hearing the roar!

No other ride in the country comes close to Nemesis for me. The terrain interaction, the insane intensity... It's such a great ride and after all these years its still in my Top 5 Coasters.
However... I do agree that it can be a bit too intense! After about three back to back rides I need a good sit down and breather (especially during events and summer).
But that nitpick aside it's the best ride we've got here in my opinion, even if it isn't quite perfect.
