Re: What did you ride on your first visit?

Haha it’s crazy how it hardly has a queue these days. I remember the first time I rode it and watching it from the old queue line descend from the lift hill with pure fear knowing what I was in for. Even though I do like short queues I do miss hearing the theme tune over and over for a couple of hou...

Nemesis pics request

Hi guys, Does anyone have any photos/links of Nemesis from around 94-97? I’ve had some time off work lately and have loved reading through lots of old posts but unfortunately almost every link from past users has expired/been removed.

Re: SW9

They should replace Rita with B&M launched wing coaster. Something to rival nemesis with the feeling of near misses and low inversions. It’d be cool to have a retheme of Dark Forest with some sort of water theme, and a decent flat thrill ride to give the area a good kick up the bum.

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Just got back from AT for the first time in afew years. Nemesis as good as ever. Does anyone else have the theme tune stuck in their head when they get home? Impressed with the 15 minute waiting time for a bank holiday Monday. Sorry to be off topic but what is it that makes a coaster rough with age?...
