Nemesis Inferno

Recommended Posts

One positive from the Annual Pass evening was that the mist was absolutely fantastic on Nemesis Inferno, with both areas on the volcano working (first time I've seen it in years) and the tunnel completely full.  Brilliant.

Definitely!

Great to see the mist still working so well. This ride is seriously ageing well and had a fantastic ride on it last night. I may be hated for this, but do in fact prefer it to the original Nemesis now!

New lift chain 2019 - clearly don't want a repeat of The Swarm (which is only 6 years old vs. Nemmy Inferno which is a whopping 15 years in comparison). 

 

 

 

 

Almost got excited when they said a "big project" until they specified what it was. The thumbnail of the video shows just how much of the queue line goes underneath the ride and it is my favourite queue line for this reason alone.

It's fantastic to see effects fixed around the ride like the foggers and the geysers that I've rarely ever seen working in person (and never synched with the ride as intended), a very cool effect!

Surprised - the geysers especially have been on and working for a good couple years now! Think they go of every other train.

I had no idea those geyser effects even existed. They must have not been working for quite a while.

 

Then again, I don't really visit Thorpe park that often to really notice missing effects.

I think this year, Inferno was brilliant with the mist and overall I thought it was great. The only downside is the dispatching of the trains - the staff take forever! Also this year, myself and my aunt witnessed it stall for the first time👀

When it takes over three minutes to dispatch a train, then there will be lots of trains stuck on the brake run.

 

Yet some people complain Mamba is slow.

2007 fright nights me and another old member of this forum who worked at the park, platforming Inferno 2 trains,  2 man team as short stagfed.....checked loaded and ready to dispatch waiting for the lift block clear for 2 hours no stacking took place, we basically worked the **** out of the queue, as we dispatched sonearly we had 30-45 seconds to get 1 person from each row to collect the bags rather than every person cramming the bag room etc....

 

it was great fun and a decent results ive never seen since!

 

it just takes will and enthusiasm both with ride hosts and getting the riders on board for the challenge!

Wonder what caused that.. maybe jet washing took some paint off although I’m pretty sure a lot of it was jet washed last year and that never happened.

 

Pretty certain it won’t be like this come March mind!

Yes, as Marc says, the support wasn't anywhere near that state at the end of season. It equally wouldn't have gotten in that bad a state in two months.

 

Chances are they're part-way through doing some work to it. If you strip away layers of paint and such, I'm sure some rides would look similar.

If the paint was stripped off during washing, looks like the paint was already flaking. It's clearly been rusting. Anyone else would think its an abandoned SBNO ride from that photo.

Pretty sure that’s how the track / supports look pre painting (image below of track at the B&M factory- I wouldn’t say it looks abandoned/ SBNO just looks like a ride under its annual winter maintenance!
