Vertigo factor 3/5

Overall 3/5


This is supposed to be one of the most exciting rollercoasters in the world. I can see why people say that, but I think lots of things are more exciting – like Oblivion (see below). They could have made it slower so you could realise what is happening – it is exciting to go so fast, but the problem is you hardly have time to know what the heck is happening.

It also has a sister ride that was launched on 24 March 2012, Nemesis Sub-Terra. It’s about these aliens called Nemesis. The main part of the ride is a drop-tower dark ride that takes you down to see an alien egg explode (and get splattered by it). I like it a bit but I think they should make it more of a ride – at the moment there’s too much walking around.
