i think that the launch on it is amazing but thats it. nemesis provides thrills all round and from the top of the lift hill till the brake run there isn't one moment of 'boringness'. i know rita isn't boring all the way round but what i'm getting at is that it is a one trick pony- an amazing launch but not much else to boast about. you go round the rest of the track thinking 'that launch was amazing!' but you don't get a chance to think on nemesis. oooo i want to go on nemesis now! :D

LOL Rita the best ride ever? The best way to describe that ride is boring imo. The best part is the launch, the rest is :?

The launch is by far the best part of the ride (especially on the front row). The rest is a bit standard but you spend the rest of the ride thinking how good the launch was, so it doesn't really matter! Not as good as nemmie which is intense throughout.

Being a classic has no relation to whether Rita is the best ride ever. And how do you rate a classic. Its certainly not by age you can tell a classic as soon as you've ridden it.

I think most of the GP don't see coasters as some of us enhusiasts do. When all my mates and I went to ride Rita in April when she was new they all thought that Rita was the best ride ever. Not me, I look back to my past experiences of roller coasters and Nemesis will always stick in my mind as the best so far. Nemesis will really take some beating. Also, my mates always say the same thing over and over, and that's whatever ride is new is the best, what? When Nemesis was new, that was the best, when Oblivion was new that was, then Air now Rita. (They even thought Spinball Whizzer was in 2004, help!!!) I class my mates as the GP. To me, just because a coaster is new, doesn't mean it's the best.

|Yeah its because they look the freshest of the rides. They believe the newer rides will always be the best rides. Look at Submission in 2001 for instance :P.
