That photo of Nemesis from Air's lift-hill is brilliant, just take a look at the attention to detail on the roof of Nemesis' station, amazing, all that detail for a bit that you never get to see! The whole alien looks awsome aswell!!!

 

arrrr, Nemesis is the best

All I know about it is it's costing roughly £8million (same price as Rita), it's ment to have some amazing special affects, and the big feature is the glass elevator, where it's ment to seem like your actually going out of the factory roof!

Great! Magic Mountain gets Tatsu, Great Adventure gets the Intamin woodie, Thorpe Park gets Stealth...and Alton Towers gets Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

 

AT needs to get some decent new rollercoasters fast, otherwise it will fall off the coaster map.

I would almost rather my local park get CatCF than a coaster. If done right it sounds like it could be great.

Hello all!

 

I went to AT again at the weekend and i having seen the supposedly initial plans for the rejected woodie which starts in Ug Land dropping 200' into the gardens and switching back by air and back to Ug Land again, i was very surprised to see a huge line of trees from the ug swingers heading into the gardens have been chopped down.

 

I think this is very bizarre to do this just as the season starts, but the cleared space is wide enough to fit about 2 wooden tracks?

 

Does anyone know any more on this?

 

Only an observation but thought i should mention it.

You are right in they build above the trees - but the lift hill was going to be about 70' ish and then the first drop would go into the gardens which is well below the trees, about 150' below, hence the 200 foot drop.

 

Im trying to find the site with the plans on

You beat me to it! They have some great retro videos on there too from the old days,

 

That "wood" be some ride if it goes ahead, I think its time for the corkscrew to go though and they can put the station of the woodie in its place, it seems so rough now compared to all the new coasters, its 26 years old this year i think, older tham me!

The plans have been shelved. There was too much opposition from many groups. And the park have some major problems atm;

 

-The Ropers

-The Ropers

-The ropers

 

It might happen eventually. But it's a huge long shot.
