Also the hidden track layout as you cannot see the whole track layout. The roll over the station, the ride diving past the mushroom cloud tours bus and the tight loop near station queue are the best parts to watch when not riding.
It looks good to watch without riding it.
The ride pits added to the theming, and the way the paint on the track has made to look old and not been cleaned and reprinted.
Thorpe's is similar to an American coaster that's just been dropped into the park. The theming at the station and volcano is good but they should have changed the name to stop people comparing the two rides.
The ride's good but not the same ride experience.

On its own it's the worst out of the big five at Thorpe. But it still provides a great ride and is fun and I would hate to see it go.Really don't understand the hate for inferno. Its got high g force a great drop and is nice and smooth (the latter 2 i can't say for the original nemesis, especially the smoothness of the ride) sure its not the most unique layout but its certinetly alot better than the batman clones, and i'd go as far to say its better than the original nemi, however thats most likely i find nemises producing some serious headbanging and come off with a headache every time, where as on inferno, i come off fealing nice and dizzy. On another note you cant say its not extremly photogenic!
Also anyone that doesn't adore the pre-lift section is just wrong.
