Re: SW8

Slightly off topic, but yesterday was the second time I've been told that nemesis is going to be removed in 2017 - this time by a friend who is friends with a designer for the Towers.

Re: So has The Smiler topped Nemesis?

I just went on I today, and as much as I enjoyed it... no The smiler has a different feel, it is all about the "WOAH!" Emitted as you tumble through the inversions. HOWEVER For me, just the raw POWER of Nemesis leaves me in awe. I went on it today for the 15th time ever, and at one point f...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Hey guys! I was in the queue when the bolt went. Here's what happened: I was stood in the queue line, just underneath the central hub of the marmaliser having just ran from the park entrance. We had just finished a vlog for our youtube channel (hpvideosofficial) and were watching in awe as the train...
