    Nemesis is superb. It's fast, intense, pretty smooth as well for a ride that's getting on a bit. Really nice queue up the hill and down into the pit, great soundtrack too, really builds up the anticipation. The sequence of corkscrew, helix and zero G roll is very forceful, one of the most forceful moments of any ride in the UK, particularly on the back. Despite that, I do think the front row is by far the best, all the near misses and trenches have so much more of an effect when you can see them coming. There's rumours that Towers are going to retrack Nemesis in the coming years, and I really hope that they do, it's a brilliant ride and one of the most unique inverts B&M have ever come up with, and a must-ride on any visit to Towers

    Theming Inversions Location Disappointing! Dead spots

    I wasn't expecting to be underwhelmed by the "UK's best coaster" but here I am. Everything beyond the first inversion and helix just didn't do anything for me. I was initially more impressed with Galactica than this but after my second visit I accepted Nemesis was definitely better but still lacking with some parts of the ride. I've heard the front seat is SIGNIFICANTLY better than the back which I haven't had a chance at doing because I had to skip the line with Fastrack, but I'll make sure I get front seat next time so I can hopefully see what this ride is really about.

    As much as i wanted to love this ride, i came off disappointed. The terrain and theming is great, however the ride doesnt really offer much. Still a great ride, but a bit overhyped

    This ride has a legendary status amongst UK enthusiasts, despite that, on my first ride I was very disappointed with the ride. But after every ride I get on it I just love it more and more. The ride is fast paced, ridiculously Intense, and has the best Terrain of any coaster I've ridden. The Corkscrews are whippy, the 0 G Roll has the best near miss ever, and the loop and turnaround are packed with positives. 5 Night rides in a row help make you fall in love with it!

    It seems like B&M inverted coasters are everywhere. Normally they are huge steel coasters that can be seen from far away. Nemesis breaks that rule and spends its time low to the ground sweeping around the terrain. The theming on this ride is incredible from the blood red water to the monstrous design of the station. This coaster packs a mean wallop from start to finish and never lets up. A particularly intense moment comes in the beginning where the train spirals down into a trench, then hops up into a zero g roll. The vertical loop is also very intense. It is also a glossy smooth ride. In my opinion this is the greatest coaster at Alton Towers. Do not miss this one.

    I rode this ride once because it was Scarefest in Alton Towers and it was crowded so the qeue lines where to big. I missed 3 credits that day even. But this ride was one of them that i was looking for in this park. Many times i saw POV's and docu about it. And then i did it last row because we waited long enough and it blew me away how amazing this B&M beauty is. Because of the height limit until the trees the make good efford of the terrain, so the inversions are pretty low. In the back row is these one realy force full. I ranked this coaster at number #12.

    A very intense but amazing ride! Nemesis doesn't give you a break and I've found over the past few years that the queues are becoming surprisingly smaller! The theming is a little out-of-date now but this still continues to be (IMP) Alton Towers' most intense ride.

    I had rode Nemesis a handful of times mid train, and must admit I just didn’t get the hype. I then rode it front seat, and boy was it a whole different experience. The near misses and sight of rocks/water whizzing by your feet completely changed the whole experience. It’s totally different admittedly, but comes just behind Icon @ Blackpool as one of my favourite coasters in the UK.

    Theming Headbanging Discomfort

    I really wanted to love this ride - but I didn’t. I know many people love it and this will be an unpopular opinion. I respect that this ride is very iconic but it is not comfortable. Either it was too intense or just too much head banging. I gave this ride 3 chances but I just didn’t enjoy it. It is only my 6th favourite ride at the park and if I wanted to go on something fun, I would just go to the ride next to it (Galactica). But the theming is cool and it never has long queues.

    Pace Intensity Layout

    Nemesis is, without a single doubt in my mind the best UK coaster out of the ones that I have currently ridden. This opinion may change when I visit Blackpool Pleasure Beach however i find that unlikely. Everything about is is just sheer magic. It has an amazing throughput, the inversions are intense, whippy and forceful, the drop is one of the most unique on any coaster, the downwards helix and zero g roll combination can cause severe greyouts and theming -immersion wise the coaster is in a completely different league to most. Even after 26 years the coaster is running relatively smoothly as well with one of the best technical histories of any coaster in the UK! It truly is absolutely incredible and will remain my favorite coaster for the forseeable future

    Nemesis is worthy of it's legendary status. It's got a creative, terrain hugging and intense layout, especially when it's sped up towards the end of the day, and it gives FANTASTIC front row night rides during Scarefest. I love this machine. It's the uniqueness of Nemesis' layout that gives it such a good place in my rankings. The vast majority of B&M inverts have a pretty similar layout, usually starting with a drop into a vertical loop, followed by a zero-g roll and some corkscrews, with a fancy turnaround thrown in if you're lucky (examples include Black Mamba, Nemesis Inferno and the Batman clones) however Nemesis shakes up the element sequence to make for a far more interesting experience, especially when combined with the unique terrain interaction unlike any other coaster in the world (at least that I can think of). It builds and maintains speed throughout the layout, and whilst it may no longer be the best ride in the UK (hello Icon) or 'the world's most intense ride experience' (hello i305... probably... I haven't ridden it yet) it is still the best ride at Towers.

    Pace Intensity Layout Headbanging Too short

    A very intense ride, speeding up from start to finish. Hard to see what's happening at points because of this, and has a great layout riding the terrain. Too short, and could be spectacular if a little longer.

    This ride is intense. It keeps its speed form the beginning to the end. You sometimes don't really see where you are going because of the caves and tunnels and therefore it is unexpectedly fast. The small (floater/airtime?) hill after the chain lift gives a great view over the ride.

    Location Pace Intensity Too short Dead spots

    Really not many problems with Nemesis - no longer my number one super incredible coaster blah de blah de blah because other coasters have just overshadowed it now, both new rides in the UK and also coasters abroad i'm riding for the first time. It could be longer and there is one dead spot which is that banked turn before the loop but like it certainly is good, just inversions no longer cut it for me! p.s. kind of feels weird only giving it 4 stars at it would have been 5 just a year or two ago for me but yeah :/

    Still my favourite coaster in the UK. It packs a punch from the moment you come off the lift hill and doesn't let up until you hit the brakes. The vertical loop is a particular highlight. Ride it in the front row for the best view - it can be a little rough at the back but it's aged very well. The theming is still excellent even though the rivers no longer run red. Capacity is good, even on a busy day the queue moves well.

    Been on this ride so many times and still is my favourite coaster. From start to finish it is so intense and never lets up. Despite its short ride time it manages to cram so much in and is relentless. It is simply fantastic

    This coaster is super intense and packs in a lot in its short layout. I thought that there was minimal roughness, as always with a B&M invert the corkscrews and zero G rolls can be a bit painful. This coaster also has the best helix of any coaster. Overall my third favourite coaster and I think the way it interacts with the terrain to be masterful.

    Theming Masterpiece Layout Headbanging

    I love Nemesis. Not for its "intensity" as advertised, (far more intense coasters exist out there) but for the relentless layout that seems to build speed as you traverse it, the dives into the valleys after every element, and especially that zero G roll with the near miss. I honestly couldn't care less that I sometimes get my head whipped against the restraint in the inversions, everything else makes up for it.

    It’s one of the best rides in the world for a reason. Forceful, intense and fun is what this coaster is. The layout is great and the pace is outstanding for such a small coaster. The terrain is what makes this coaster so great as it’s mostly underground!! I would give it 6 if I could.

    Inversions Masterpiece Intensity Headbanging Too short

    Nemesis is the reason I'm a coaster fan, closely followed by Rollercoaster Tycoon. It may well have been responsible for staving off insanity! The ride is highly original, substituting raw speed for high rates of turn and close proximity to the ground. For such a simple and effective trick not to be used widely elsewhere is a travesty. If by some miracle you can catch Nemesis on a cold, wet night you will hardly ever find a better time on a rollercoaster. Watching the Towers Fireworks from Nemesis is highly recommended!

    Fantastic roller coaster with great pacing. The layout makes the most of the tight height restriction, with high speed turns and snappy inversions. Still comfortable despite its age. Nice theme and usually running at a high capacity.

    Alton Towers' 1994 Inverted coaster deserved its legendary reputation. Its short but action-packed layout stands out with its unique element order. Each element seamlessly leads to the next one and the pacing is excellent. The extremely forceful downwards helix following the first Corkscrew is arguably the highlight of a ride devoid of any dead spots. In addition, the ride aged gracefully - Europe's first B&M it is still glossy smooth! Simply put, Nemesis is a masterpiece and the best coaster in England in my opinion.

    One of Britain's best rides, the 1994 classic still delivers a good ride to this day, but is a bit too short for me to rank this any higher than my number 5 spot.

    Fantastic coaster with beautiful scenery. It is so intense! The corkscrew followed by the helix gets me every time I go in it. It is short but it doesn't feel incomplete and and therefore isn't "too short"
