This ride will have nothing to do with Nemesis. If it does, I'll eat my pirate hat :yohoho:

I just laughed so hard some wee came out.
Im really looking forward to this now. But I should raise the point that if this is not a good ride (which I doubt) it could be damaging to the Nemesis name.[/quote]
First of all im going to sympathise with Diogo about the use of the Nemesis brand, I get why It feels like Nemmy is being raped for all its worth especially after Inferno name use, the lack of TLC it has had and the fact we all now know its even the public favourite. However I am a supporter of the story line and concept as seen in my earlier post having mentioned about the comic, narration and original video footage (which follows some of the comic book story) some footage is used here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dMZcXJGWeI
. I do hope the name is a working progress but can not blame Merlin if they stick with it and use the suggestive link. But they have now created a tough situation for themselves because they know if it is not up to scratch not just as a ride now but as a complete story and theme package that the coaster community will not forgive and will probably be very vocal of there opinion to Merlin unlike past mistakes forgiven (13 Marketing).
Like I said in my first post in this topic, for Merlin to fail on the theme / story of this ride would be no excuse considering the amount of media and backstory available plus having the genius behind the original back on board.
I am quietly confident that this ride should live up to expectation, lets just hope the marketing people and creative geniuses are together on this one, and its not a stunt to pull everyone in.. Time will tell..
