Nemesis Inferno

I took a 250 mile trip down to Thorpe Park for this first sime on friday and dyou know what?

I reckoned Inferno to be better than Nemesis.

For me it's Oblivion also, it's so imposing! But Nemesis does scrape it, the walk towards the pit with the 90degree helix brushing the fence, and the music too. I do like, however, the lack of music around Oblivion, just the occasional 'clunk''scream''bang'......sexual That helix clinches it for me...

A centrifugal force is a word to describe a virtual or non-existant force which pushes the cars to the outside of a track when moving around a circle (i.e a loop). A centripetal force is when the track is applying a force towards the centre of the...

Bravo Dan.

Had great fun reading that. :clap:

Maybe fun isnt the word lol but certainly a good read.

But when i posted this I thought the author of teh article was asuming the wheels on Oblivion were like a train and just resting on teh track. Ie he assumed there were no upstops on them.

Oblivion Facts... or Fiction?

Although regarded as the world's first vertical drop roller coaster, at its steepest Oblivion's drop has an angle of 87.9°. T his is to keep the wheels in contact with the track for the duration of the drop. Now is it just me or has this person gone on wikipedia writing an article thinking theyre c...

I havent read anything but the initial post here so i'll be commenting on that. I think its a bit ignorant not to take all the factors into account, such as was it actually a fault to teh park or the ride? If it was just a case of someone going on the ride and dying of a heart attack then AT could l...

I dont think they could to be honest. Every body here needs to get their heads out of their arses and stop comparing it to Nemesis.

Nemesis Restraints.

Was on park yesterday for first time this season (i'm ashamed not to have gone sooner) and i couldnt help but notice how spic'n'span Nemesis retraints were looking all shiny and newish.

Have they just been painted or are they new?

Good change either way.

A rollercoaster is the least likely erm thing (for want of a better word) to cause motion sickness.

Motion sickness is caused by tedious repetative motions so a flat ride or a car is your best bet for puke :lol:
