Re: Nemesis: Most intense Inverter?

Silver Bullet The helix at the end of the ride almost causes a "blackout" making that the most intense section of an invert I have been on. But the rest of the ride before that is force-less but still has an interesting layout. Not as intense as Nemesis. I agree with nemesiscrazy here, I'...

I always think I'm going to swallow my tongue on launches. I start having mass swallow-sprees before the launch and pray I don't swallow at the wrong time. :P

Apart from that I don't think I have any.

I would have absolutely love to ride the Tower of Terror at Gold Reef City in South Africa. It's a shame the park is in a place I am never likely to visit and the ride has hideous downtimes.

Could I add Stinger from Paulton's also. That's one of the coolest kid's rides I've ever been on. Smooth, quite long and also has some great airtime. :D

I went to Cali last year. Unfortunately due to a blip I didn't get to go to Magic Mountain. The rides do sound amazing, even if poorly themed, it's definitely worth going. I don't really hear reviews that bad about the rides. They have some not so fantastic coasters, like Superman :P But they also h...

Yeah early September is good. If you can find a school inset day around that time the park will shut fairly early, but you shouldn't be queuing much longer than 30 minutes for the busiest rides and you will probably get some walk ons.

Apparently Mantis' loop is 119 ft, whereas Kumba's is 114 ft.

Smallest? I really have no idea.

Edit: Klondike and it's clones have 31' 10" loops, which seem very small to me. :P

It's a shame I'm not a very good swimmer otherwise I'd get a fastpass too! Seriously though, how she managed to fall out close to the waterfall I don't know. Even if she was standing up a little it would take a mighty blow to throw someone out of a raft. :? Well at least she didn't receive any real ...

The height limit is pretty much capped. Placing large trees in won't effect it.

The Roboarms look a little lackluster to me. Whilst they may provide nice thrills and entertainment they do not have a great deal in the form of presence.

The robocoaster does look very interesting though, especially if it was incorporated into a dark ride. :D
