Does front row on Nemesis make the difference?

Thu Jun 13, 2013 2:20 pm

I can't understand why i just don't 'get' Nemesis. I've ridden 3 times now, and each time i've gone in expecting to love her (given the amount of love for her on here!), but i find myself very, very disappointed. I was even tempted to buy my ride pic on tuesday, just to show the look of complete and utter boredom on my face!

So, my question is.. would it make me think totally differently if i got on front row? Rita is a completely different beast when you ride front row, as is oblivion.. so is there that much difference on Nemmy?

Front row is 9000 times better than anywhere else.

Although i agree with you, I don't get the huge hype - I think there are better rides out there.

Front row nemesis is only good for the drop towards the queue line and the awesome helix (favourite part of the ride).

IMO the back is the best cos you get whipped round, especially the helix which is an amazing feeling.

As a general rule I find front row on every ride makes for a more enjoyable experience, with the exception of Air. Definitely worth a go, the first drop over the queue line gets me every time :D

Agreed, front row on Nemmy is excellent, but equally so is the back row for a whole host of reasons.

Front row for the visual aspect - near misses etc. Back row for the most forceful ride experience.

Don't agree with Michelle above, though. If any ride is improved by front row then it's Air. Being able to see ahead of you instead of just down adds so much to it, especially the final turn!

I personally don't think it does for the pure ride experience,  but if you enjoy seeing all the near misses, it's fantastic.
I reckon the best ride to go front row on is Enterprise!
Jokes! :P
This ride is perfectly safe. Everything has been designed for your comfort and enjoyment.

For me yes it definitely does make the difference on Nemesis given it's an inverted coasted, the ride is so much better when you can see ahead of you, if you're in the middle it's not so bad but I always nab the front row whenever I go.

Other rides I don't really care about front row.

That said though I have ridden the back row a few times purely for the thrill of being dragged around the turns & twists like a ragdoll, great fun and seems faster (which I know is impossible).

I remember when Scarefest wasn't as popular as it is now and we managed to get on every ride front row with about 1 minute of queueing, I would say it gives you that extra 10% of ride sensation, but adding to that the dark, which gives you another 50% on top !

Scarefest 2009 - last ride of the night, pitch black cloudy sky, temperatures well below zero, a hint of rain in the misty air, park practically deserted, Scarefest feature lighting already switched off, near silence, front row - far right hand seat... The single best ride of my life, bar none.

Front row on Nemmy is well good. Sit on the outside of the front row for the best effect.

Regarding the back row... I've always thought that riding the back row of a B&M is like putting ketchup on lobster.

Front row definitely adds another level of enjoyment to Nemesis and is always worth the wait for. As a side note, back right is always an intense experince and worth fiddling with group numbers to sit in ;)

Roger that. back row right hand side, definately my favourite seat, although anywhere on the back row is definately the best. THe whole experience seems so much more intense, that first sharp turn//dive into the tunnel makes me feel ten times heavier than i am hehe, loove nemesis back row, best ride ever

Front row for once on a ride does make a difference. Absolutely a sensation that you should do next time if there isn't a big queue.
