1. Nemesis - The best roller coaster I have had a ride on. Its forces, acceleration and theming makes it fantastic and better than great rides like The Hulk.

2. Oblivion - Vertical drop... don't look down... Plays with your emotions, which makes it unique.

3. Colossus - The only experience of its kind, a stunningly imposing and big looper.

4. Saw the Ride - The games have just begun! The sinister theme is carried throughout and makes you feel scared and exhilarated, but the speedy inversions after the drop are fun!

5. Stealth - The best launch, possibly. Zooming off and suddenly being snatched up towards the sky. GO GO GO!

6. Dragon's Fury - A fun and wild spinner. Good length and leaves you laughing.

7. Vampire - Well, it is Vampire. Swooping over Transylvania and diving over people's heads. Great music and theme.

8. Duel :twisted:

9. Bubbleworks :mrgreen:

10. Rush - Best flat ride ever! Not as thrilling or interesting as others, but the ride experience is epic.

(11. Tomb Blaster - Brilliant scenery and atmosphere. Many memories stay with you about it - particularly the giant snake and Anubis. Prepare to disembark into the tomb...)

(12. Nemesis Inferno - Fast and furious, and smooth. Good theming and atmosphere.)

How lovely.

I'm surprised Dara even did it to be honest as there are no Oakwood rides in there. :P

Fav ride at either Thorpe or Alton

Sun Jul 12, 2009 12:15 pm

Just put your fav ride at either Alton or Thorpe. Beware I haven't put all of them but just the main ones. :)

My fav is Nemmy Inferno closely followed by Air and Nemesis.

There are already polls about Alton Towers' and Thorpe Park's rides, but I will leave the moderators to that! Mine are Nemesis, Oblivion and Colossus because they have fantastic atmosphere. Why have you missed Chessington and Legoland?

Stealth - for the pure adrenaline rush it gives you, the iconic symbol it provides for Thorpe and no matter what anyone says, its definitely better than rita in my mind.. when its working :shock:

Nemesis - Still the landmark coaster for the UK to me, never fails to impress me on every ride!

Nemesis - Intense ride experience, theming is top notch, atmosphere suits the ride perfectly, the whole design and landscape of the ride is quality. 14 years on and still the best!

Oblivion - Huge adrenalin rush on the drop, Theming and atmosphere works well to create a brilliant terrifying atmosphere. Just another legend at the Towers.

Both these rides never fail to impress me.

Best Merlin Flume Ride?

Sat Oct 06, 2012 3:00 pm

Whats the best/your personal favourite? The flume has the most drops out of the 4, is the longest and is in a dense forest. Loggers leap is also located in forest area and has alright theming, has the fastest drop and the tallest drop out of the 4. Dragon Falls has nice oriental theming with beautiful plants. Pirate falls has nice pirate theming with tropical plants. Only features 1 drop. I have been on all 4 and I must say Dragons Falls is my personal favourite. Ive had lots of fun memories on that ride. :)

Re: The flume VS Dragon falls VS Loggers leap VS Pirate Falls!

Loggers Leap is the best one for me. Even through it has only got 2 drops, it is the most thrilling!

The drop in the dark is surprising even if you are expecting it. The drop and the end is EPIC! the airtime on that is amazing! It is not to strong or weak!

LOGGERS LEAP FOR THE WIN!

I love the flume for the theme, length and music, BUT the ride shocking all the bath tub does it bangs from left to right and you end up all shaken up. If they could make the ride no bang into the sides every two seconds it would be number 1.

Loggers is the best when the effects and water is working, just the right length, heigh and fun

Dragon falls, looks the part and is so well themed, you would expect it to be in an American theme park

Pirate falls, is good for little ones and I wouldn't want it to have multiple drops or be higher as the small children who go on it won't enjoy it as much.
If you go down to the woods today
