Sounds short, but they could have some turns and a helix or something we dont know about.

We were there just a few weeks too soon -- all we got to see were footers...

The rest of your submission had nothing to do with the subject.

Wow! This is early... With track arriving in late summer when the opening isn't untill next spring, Thorpe park is probably going to unload some heavy theming on this ride. With the red track and the name "Infurno", it will probbly be themed to fire or a Volcano. Sounds great :)

I think this will be a great ride(Too bad i won't be riding it anytime soon). I also think that it will be great if they put a lot of time into themeing it and making it a one of a kind ride. And if i'm not mistaken isn't the actual name of the ride "Nemises inferno".

Hmmm, I'm guesing that there will be a very direct link between the theming of this coaster and Nemesis at Alton Towers....(at the risk of stating the obvious). A bit like the fire and ice dragons at IOA....except in different parks!!! :)

This ride will need more than good theming to top Nemesis, however. What makes Nemesis so special is the way it is integrated with the surrounding terrain: threre is just no let up in the intensity of that ride and there are few coasters that pack quite such a visual or physical punch. It's just a pity it's so short! I'm really looking foward to riding Montu at Busch Gardens, which seems to remedy that problem! I've heard reports that it has been over-trimmed! Does anyone know anything about this?

It's funny that you mention that, because last year at IAAPA, Justin of ECC told me he remembered when Montu was called Nemesis. ;) Hey, at least I don't have to cross the pond to get to it!

I found the layout here. It features a very long pre-lift tunnel (hopefully themed) and a world first on a inverted coaster - interlocking corkscrews!

Yes, I know Dueling Dragons have interlocking corkscrews but 95 percent of people note the fact that they are seperate coasters so...

BeyondOblivion: I rode Montu for this first time this summer and I loved it, but I think it didn't have that much force. I was in the back and middle rows so the front could be different.

I did notice that when we went into the Batwing the brakes were definately applied. Other people also said that the block brake made the train come to an almost complete stop, which is far from the truth.

In my opinion I don't think it's over-trimmed, then again I didn't ride it when it first opened.

Does this thing go faaaaaast!

Jeff- One of the sad realities of living in the UK is that you have to cross the pond to get the best rides (with a few exceptions). The other sad reality of living in the UK is .....well, living in the UK

Having made the first point I must say that I admire the amount of investment that is being put into Thorpe Park. A few years back the situation was tragic, they had nothing for the enthusiast. However, the future is now looking much brighter. I await Nemesis inferno with interest!

That's not half the problem that Aussies have.

We have a tiny collection (I'd say 25 including Traveling coasters - 20 permanent), AND the airfares are heaps and heaps more to the USA from here.

Well, if we didn't have sun and bright blue skies 300 days a year, then I'd probably die. :)

So what if the best coaster in Australia is a second hand Arrow?

Looks like it should be named Christmas:The Ride.

The figure 8 at the end looks like it could be pretty intense.

All I need is 4.5 million bucks and a half a mile long sliver of land and maybe someone could build me my very own Shivering Timbers. ;)
