    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

    Location Intensity Layout Dead spots

    Unique layout, some very intense moments. But there is a dead spot at the over banked turn and the final tunnel.

    Not the intense ride people tout it to be but certainly good fun, great at night.

    Pace Masterpiece Layout

    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.

    It is a fun ride however some moments, mainly the over banked turns are quite boring.

    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.

    Inversions Pace Intensity Disappointing!

    The First ride I got in 2018 was an underwhelming back row middle ride. It's my Mum's favourite coaster, and the rest of my group loved it. Personally it was my number 6 at the Towers. This year I got a front row ride, still didn't love it. But as I rode it more throughout the day, it heated up significantly, I tried it in different seats and this is a spectacularly intense ride. It's my Number 3 at Towers, and my number 7 Overall, but the Terrain work is amazing as you fly in and out of it. I got a couple of middle night rides, I preferred them to my front row rides, They were just more intense, I would've like to've back again, but they only use that for disabled people... All Day... There were some on every ride, I don't know if it was the same group, or something else... That was weird. This ride is Extremely Over-Hyped but looks amazing to watch off ride, go in with low expectations, then you'll probably like it.

    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.

    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.

    Controversially not a fan of this B&M .. find the layout too 'tight' and the corners uncomfortable, always been a bit of a headbasher for me ..

    Theming Intensity Layout Too short

    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"
