I loved it but I was expecting something more.
When was it you went on for the first time?
The park set expectations high in 1994 because Nemesis was setting a standard, nothing like it had been seen in Europe, and even in America the idea was still fresh.
The hype was incredible and well deserved at the time...the legacy has carried on now and late riders have a really high expectation of what it's going to be like.....most of the time unfortunaely later riders have experienced newer, more intense experiences and it all seems a little over the top....the ride still has such a strong british following because of the impact it made in 1994.
Now...I don't want to get into the same argument that went on a few years back regarding this.....but has anyone stood back and looked at the whole attraction from the entrance to forbidden valley, all the way through the queue and finally the ride....comparing that to other rides...other then Hex I feel Nemesis is the most intense attraction for first time riders that i've ever encountered, whereas the actual rollercoaster itself may not thrill like it used to.
Anyone else also feel the rollercoaster (especially statistics like G force) is irrelevant on it's own when comparing theme park rides and their intensityIs the rush of standing next to a vertical loop buried in a trench for the first time, as 64 feet go whizzing past your head at 50mph, the wind catching you off guard and the screams echoing around the pit more intense then the ride itself?
