Nemesis closed due to flooding.

Sat Jul 07, 2012 7:43 pm

I was on park today, and me and many guest were sad to find Nemesis was down for the entire day!

The cause i found out the water down around the loop was FLOODED with the water level reaching 12ft this meant when testing the guests would be knee up in water if it opened so for the time being it is closed!

They were working to clear the flood, however i did hear tankers may be brought in to try and clear the water...

sorry i didn't get any pics, no-one was allowed near the ride...

Hopefully its back up and running soon..

Apparently it closed at 2.30 on friday possibly as it got to a dangerous level, but no tankers were around today, so its unknown if it will be rectified for tomorrow...

the stone floor that nemesis is built into means that natural drainage is a major problem,
so unless they bring in some serious pumps nemesis will remain closed until the weather improves.

On the bright side Nemesis Inferno should still be open :-)

There was talk of bringing in tankers to pump the water out, but only time will tell whether the Beast reopens, anoyone else on this week should be able to keep us updated...

Oh great, I was actually getting annoyed that Nemesis would be closed when I went tomorrow, but luckily that wasn't the case. :)

On the testing would the cars get stuck (slow down) because of water?

You wouldn't want to, because the speed going into the loop then u hit water could seriously cause damage to your legs!
Hence why it never opened...

I guess it could hurt

what about if it was so high that the whole car went through the water?
Now that I wouldn't like.

I am supervised it has no filters, or that they did not get in a filter for the flooding!
Did Alton implement any wet weather plans, like Silverstone, thinking that Alton is a very grassy, undulating and overall wet park! ;)
