Announcement just said Nemesis is closing.

 

Queue shut already.

 

Job done by the Marketing team.

 

Interesting choice, why would they advertise ‘Nemesis Is Closing’ and also advertise an announcement by the Phalanx that… Nemesis is closing? Christ, talk about an anticlimax!

Mean storyline has always been there in the background. Nowadays they embrace it (whilst ripping off UNIT from Doctor Who) which could work or not. The ride always worked with the vagueness of it all leaving guests to fill in any gaps, but it worked as being creepy alien, big pit, scary coaster.

 

What happens in the Marketing blurb is unlikely to make any major difference to the ride itself.

I would think any changes or additions to the story would have little impact on the ride. We know that the station is only getting cosmetic fixes, we know  very little of the ride is changing (only an extra footer and support on the downward helix) so therefore this Phalanax stuff could just be background dressing. The original legend was never pushed at people, only ever marketing fluff.

 

I wouldn’t want Towers to do things like pre shows or photo shoot rooms. Just leave as be.

 

The pictures from last night look fabulous. What a send off. I can’t imagine any other U.K. ride bringing so many people together in this way. It really is something special.

Yeah I mean I didn't mean a storyline for the main ride - the announcement very much sounded like a pre-requisite to another storyline for a seperate attraction (Sub-Terra). A new evil CEO, trying to entice people into entering the Phalanx headquarters for a tour of some kind, only to 'unleash' Nemesis on them to kill them.

 

I dunno, I'm no theme park storyline designer but that's very much the kind of vibe I'm getting from the announcement.

I can't help but feel sad about Nemesis closing either, even though its reopening. To me everything about the ride/area is perfect. It runs the best it ever has and is the consistently the biggest queue eater on park.

 

I'm glad merlin have invested in its future, I just hope too much isn't changed and it runs as intensely as it does, the hulk retrack does give me hope.

 

Sad I couldn't make it over there for one final night ride on Sunday, but I'm glad Towers made a decent effort to give it a good send off and so many people turned up. The atmosphere looked amazing.

All very exciting isn’t it.

 

Great to see them properly investing in the future now.

 

I always say going public with a company is bad news. 
Finally they’re investing their profits in to their future, and not just focusing on what the share price will be tomorrow.
