The below photo has been posted on Instagram by @therollercoasterproject
and shows us a view of the Wicker Man from ground level. It looks mighty impressive!
Wow, that really is going to be some headchopper (you have to remove the scaffold in your mind but it's still looking close- the banking makes it look even more so) - could this be like Oblivion's impossible chasm- that great illusion of being too tight a gap to get through- imagine approaching it at speed (if indeed this is the 'in' side of the aperture). Looks to be similarly intimidating with the lower one too.
Absolutely love the colour of the buildings too- it works so well visually. You get a nice variation of colours rather than just one which looks good too. Great choice of materials and palette.
This coaster is shaping up to be one stunning beast.
And agreed, sound tunnels round the station is interesting- for darkness? as there's audio/ effects in there? to avoid spoilers for the preshow? #Whatsinthesoundtunnels
I just realised that Nickelodeon Streak actually has a longer track length than this ride
Nick Streak feels really short so I hope that whatever is in that maintenance shed prolongs what is going to be a very short ride experience."-
Nemesis looks quite small length-wise on a photo and is 'only' 2349 ft but what an awesome 2349 ft they are, 2028 ft does seem a bit short changed for a wooden coaster being opened in 2018 - it will be one of the shortest wooden coasters globally and all the well-known UK ones are longer- but Nemesis proves size isn't everything as lots of people like it more than longer rides of the same type- a short ride can pack a lot of power.
The odd thing is looking at the construction pics I don't immediately think 'oh that's a bit short' which i think is a sign that the many twists and turns are the more important factor, look at some of the longer coasters and they do have that 'oh that looks short' factor as the layout's quite simple as Phild94 (who seems to be thinking similar as they've posted similar thoughts whilst I was typing!) has pointed out.
Hopefully people love it and Merlin go for another, bigger woodie in future.
