Nemesis

I genuinely don't think we'll ever see anything quite like again.

 

Coasters are becoming more technologically advanced and adding elements which would have seemed like pipe dreams 10-15 years ago. But the sheer simplicity of Nemesis, coupled along with its brilliant landscaping, styling and pace makes it just brilliant.

 

Even with it becoming a bit uncomfortable in its age, it's truly stood the test of time.

Just rode Nemesis the other day  and I have to say it was running really well, and both of my rides on it were just after opening so I was pretty blown away how intense it was!

Nemesis maybe 25 years old but it certainly still holds it ground as one of the best rides in the park (and Alton have a pretty respectable lineup)

Interestingly, Alton Towers have today submitted a planning application "seeking to confirm the lawfulness of maintenance works to the "Nemesis" ride, an existing roller coaster at Alton Towers Resort", according to TowersTimes:

Could this be for, or at least relating to, the heavily rumoured Nemesis retrack? And if it is, could it be for the ride's upcoming 30th anniversary in 2024, perhaps?

More importantly, does this make it a new cred or not? It's not a full on new coaster after all..

 

Fortunately the precedent was set with Hulk, since that was mostly, but not entirely retracked.

Do you think the park plan on marketing it in some form?

I imagine there will be something. It's interesting to note that the plans indicate that pretty much everything else will remain the same: entrance, queue, plaza, station and theming are being retained, with some minor cosmetic work to the station. So this is very much 'Nemesis with new track', rather than "NemesIIs". So difficult to market.

 

I expect this will take some time though; it's not work I can see them managing in a singular closed season. So push it with 30th anniversary celebrations and a reopening Sub Terra, and there's something there I guess.

An important note in the application is that the track that is being installed will be sand filled. So nemesis will be loosing her roar.

 

Never stopped the Orlando based ones from the distinctive roar.

 

If the choice is quieter Nemesis or none at all there's only one answer.
