from the review I guess they made it seem like it wasn't as good as they thought it would be, and that they did point out that it was B&M's "first attempt" at a flying coaster. I personally wouldn like to ride AIR. I think it seems awesome!

The first one I spoke to when he got back from the UK said," I like the Vekoma's beter " Air is just to flat.

That's his opinion of course and hey, he did both of them. I personally think when theming is completed that Air will settle itself next to the Nemisis.


Straight from the Netherlands... the overbanked hill !

I live in the UK and rode AIR last week. Not as good as Nemesis. UK parks spend big money on short rides. There is to much theming on some rides. Alton Towers is no exception.

I was disappointed with Air - no comparison to Stealth at PGA. Awesome site and photos.
