I greyed out on my first ride of Nemesis yesterday. It was on the helix just after the first corkscrew.


My feet always start to feel numb coming out of the helix and the start of the zero-G-roll! I have never greyed out on nemesis, the numb feeling is the closest I have come to something similar happening!


I thought I saw my vision darken right after the helix yesterday, but it was probably just me closing my eyes due to the wind :lol

The scariest times are when you go on a rollercoaster for the first time, as you don't know what's coming ;)

Another newish scariest moment at Alton Towers.
I was riding Duel when the ride broke down, and we were in the tunnel. The tunnel kept on spinning and made me extremely disorientated, leaving me sick by the end of the ride.
Not one of my best rides on Duel.


I've been in that situation too :(
i love sub terra. By the looks of it, the only one.

The Haunting of Molly Crowe. Was very close to taking off my hood and walking out, or having a panic attack.

Loosing my breath on Oblivion as I went down the drop!
Usually I am alright, but on that occasion I was caught off guard!

What actually happened in there? Also, where was it? Was it in the Swiss Cottage?

It was in the towers, accessed through the tunnel from by X-Sector. It was a standard hooded maze really but with a great ending!!
Life is a roller coaster. You can either scream every time you hit a bump or you can throw your hands up in the air and enjoy it.

Ohhhhh, I get you. I read about the ending. Wish I couldve gone. The only Alton scare mazes Ive done are The Sanctuary (amazing), Carnival of Screams (best one ever imo) and TOTT (absolutely awful).

Either the bit in the middle of sub-species with the masks with lights, or witnessing disembodied stone throwing in the hex queue line one very quiet februarg half term!

It was when Th13teen's tesla went off when I was 9 - I started crying and didn't want to ride, but, I did and I enjoyed it!

On a serious note, I went through dark apocalypse last year. Chainsaws exist.

This ride is perfectly safe. Everything has been designed for your comfort, and enjoyment.

Nemesis: Sub Terra.

I've never been so anxious to get off a ride in my life. It was too much for me as i never experienced something which i couldn't see what was going on. This was before the maze section was added, i imagine if i went when this was added, i will not have coped. But now that I've done horror mazes, N:ST would be a walk in the park :lol

The Welcoming Blindfold Section

At Scarefest this year, i was lucky enough to be at the back of the first ever public group in The Welcoming. I had already been in the other three mazes completely fine, and i was fine in the Welcoming, until the blindfold section.

I had never done a blindfolded section in a maze before, and i easily faint when i am dehydrated or warm. I hadn’t drunk anything for two hours and i went into Welcoming with a hoodie and a coat. When the bag went on my head i was fine, but about a minute into the blindfolded section i began to get the feeling i get before i faint. I managed to make it through the blindfolded section, but felt disoriented for about an hour. On wednesday 25th october i went back in the welcoming and purpusly only wore a hoodie and drunk water before going in, and i was completely fine.

This could be why i thought the welcoming was garbage, but i thought it just lacked the intensity the other three had
