Which coaster is most pleasing on the eye?

Mon Oct 13, 2008 9:13 pm

Although this sounds crazy i find the Corkscrew the best to look at, if you look at it from certain angles its fantastic!

Nemesis, the way it is in a pit you get it from all angles. I love getting right next to the fence as it comes wooshing past

[color=green] airs track is a lovelly colour and is very graceful, however the poorly themed area lets it down.

Id say nemesis, you can never quite see the whole track and the trains just seem to appear and dissapear its so cool.

I want to say nemesis, but i'm being pulled towards AIR as some of the photography for it is M-A-R-V-E-L-O-U-S!

I think I'm with the majority here, AIR! It's not just the track and the train's themselves, but the station & blue lights and the minimal tropical, modern-esque theme all plays a part!

Yeah got to be Air, just looks lush and smooth and well nice. lol.

Though thing that annoys me, Nemesis looks great and nearly does it more than air for me from one spot. And that one spot is in the exstended queue line where you can see everything, know where i mean? But there you go.

Saying that Rita is a close 2nd to be honest. (Joking before you shoot me down in flames LOL)

Spinball - it blends in so well with it's surroundings you hardly know it's there until your standing right next to it...

I'm going to go with... Air. Nemesis is sooooo photogenic, but Air just blows you away, even if most of the theming got left on the drawing board. not the best coaster in the world, but one of the prettiest.

It's got to be Air, it looks stunning on sunny days and the way that the trains glide around the tracks only make it look better. Just think how good it would have looked with the waterfalls that it was meant to have.

I think he quite obviously is. :lol:

Air as well for me. Lovely colour, love its gliding and all the surrounding greenery... just for a few more additions and it could be that lush oasis that it was meant to be. :(

Reluctantly, Air. But it needs to be cleaned up regularly and have more "oasis" themeing added. With a coaster that is designed to look swish and modern, any grime sticks out lack a sore thumb and really brings the ride down.

Oh yeah, it really is starting to look horrible and grubby, and in 5 years time unless something is done it'll look really shabby. Air is a real "millenium" coaster if you get what I mean. In the late 90s/early 00s it was all the trend for things looking very "space age" and "technical" even though they didn't really predict it would date quite quickly. Unfortunately, Air followed this trend, so it's important to keep it in good upkeep.
