Well it's not just the rollercoaster itself, the theme and the atmosphere count as well. It also has a nostalgia factor. I was in awe of it as a child.

Anyone in doubt of Nemesis should try riding it a few times, especially getting familiar with the front row which is one of the most amazing coaster experiences ever.

I have been on the ride over 50 times, and I don't think it even comes close to the most amazing coaster experience ever.


So, what is a better ride than Nemesis in your opinion?

I completely fell in love with Nemmy and even named my cat after her/him. I went on Inferior first and quite enjoyed it, but when i went on Nemmy, i thought, wow! this is what they can do.

I think that says it all really. For someone to ride Inferior first, which isn't really a bad ride to be honest, and then still be wowed by Nemesis is quite something.

I named my first rat Nemesis for the same reason.

True. The seat-ward force would just end up swinging you off, kind of like mud flying off a tyre  :D

Everything at Thorpe Park and PortAventura, G force at Drayton Manor, Rita and Thi3teen and lot more.
Don't get me wrong, I don't hate the ride, but I think it's way to overated.

Okay, if you like it, great, if you don't, great. Less queue for me.

G-Force? That is the most painful, disgusting excuse for a ride I've ever ridden... I don't rate Nemesis highly whatsoever, but ranking it below that? Wow.

What's not to love about Nemesis? It has one of the most unique and intense layouts in the world. You also have to take into account the vast landscaping and interaction with the local terrain. It's one awesome experience, and there hasn't been anything like it since.

How you can rate G Force is beyond me...

Lmfao why not add the nutty squrrel ride and the runaway train to your list.

Sorry but clearly you don't understand what makes for a good roller coaster yet, yes TP have some great coasters but saying Rita and G force are better clearly shows a lack of respect for Nemesis
