Vampire is a suspended coaster, not a inverted coaster. It was meant as a joke, correcting him.

Nobody 'hates' Inferno. It's just generally not as highly rated as Nemesis.

^This. I mean, for people to say that Inferno is "bitterly despised" is just laughable, to be honest. While there may be one or two 'extremists' on this forum to which this applies (and I would seriously question their judgement), the majority simply do not rate it highly. I would hope that the majority see it as a good, or at least OK, coaster, just not one which is at any risk of beating others such as Nemesis.

Not highly rated ≠ hated, despised etc.

(Also, there really should be an option on the poll for "Eh? I don't hate it at all")

I think "bitterly despised" may be slightly hyperbolic, however that's not to say that I like the ride. It's a formula ride, designed by maths, and for that reason I really DO hate it.

OK, so now I know it's not hated. I really love the ride because it's fun and forceful on the back row. My cousin has ridden both and said both are good, just Nemesis is more intense that Inferno. So now I have everyones opinion I can relax. But carry on debating.

It's not, there are many people who thinks it's just 'meh' (me included) But that doesn't mean people either love it or hate it. It's a fun ride but does nothing for me. It's the definition of average in my opinion.

Mark, you need to be far less passive aggressive if you disagree with what someone says (for everyone else, that was my quote).

I was taking the mick about some people (not specific) being particularly passionate about their dislike of Inferno, namely myself, for comic effect. At the end of the day, it's a roller coaster, I'm not going to get worked up if I don't like it no matter much I might not like it.

I've added an 'other' option to the poll, for those who might have different reasons. :)

I've never been to Thorpe so cannot say much although I think using the Nemesis brand on Inferno was a bad decision in the first place. That in itself leaves guests with a certain expectation, for those who have visited Alton they will immediately judge Inferno's thrills and intensity. If that doesn't hit the mark then it leaves some guests not finding it thrilling enough.

It looks like an all round good coaster judging from what I've seen on the internet. I hope one day to brave chav Thorpe Park and give Inferno a go. However I would ride it without viewing it as a part of the Nemesis brand, I would treat it as something fresh and new.

I actually do that. I pretend its not part of the NEMESISIAN brand and make out its called Inferno... But they should keep the theme music. Ok, and thanks for the other poll question.

For what it's worth, I didn't know it was your quote, I just saw it as I was skim-reading and it stuck in my head. Which kinda teaches me not to comment on something I skim read, but at the same time it's OTT to call me passive-aggressive.

My point still stands, though, even if you replace "bitterly despised" with "hate" or whatever. I honestly don't see what there is to hate about the ride - it's a perfectly good ride, in my opinion, even if there are others that are better.

It's not as good as Nemesis, but it's perfectly alright. I think this is the accepted wisdom. Accept the wisdom, heathens.

Aren't they all designed by maths?

I think a real problem with Inferno is that it feels like they have cut sections out from various coasters and stuck them all together to try to make a new ride when really the only unique part of the ride is the initial drop and tunnel section, but really isn't that a common feature of most Inverts?

It's a mixture of things, I think the only real dislike or "hatred" as people put it towards the ride is from people of a similar ilk i.e. enthusiasts.

Also can we have an option on the poll along the lines of "I like the ride" or "I don't think there is anything bad about Inferno" etc.

Just wanted to add, I've always been someone who's thought of Inferno as distinctly average, but today, down to the heat or something, it was the fastest and most forceful I've ever seen. Made for a brilliant ride.
If you go down to the Towers today, you\'d better ride Th13teen. :P

Yeah, I didn't really explain myself properly! :P

I mean that it seems to provide a rather exact amount of force at a rather exact point. For example, the loop provides force at the entry, peak and exit, but not much else around it. By contrast, Colossus' loop increases in force as you go round to a peak then decreases as you exit.

Sorry, but I refuse to believe the ride gained over 3mph just due to the heat. Have you a source for this?
