New photos from Thorpe Park show the new Nemesis Inferno B&M inverter winding about from the station to the base of the future lift.

See the photos at Thorpe Park Guide.

Looks nice doesnt it? Certainly a different beginning from your normal Inverter. The brakerun and transfer are going up now. I'll get new pics on the 5th...

In best Bill Walton voice: "What's with all the meandering? What are Walter and Claude thinking? Gimme a ride with some intensity. Let me feel some Gs."

Just kidding, I actually think that approach is really interesting. Thanks for the updates.

That is really cool! Thank you so much for the pics, I can't wait to see the final product, though it will be a while before I travel across the pond to ride it.

I always thought it'd be neat to do a combo dark ride/coaster. For example, an inverted coaster could wander slowly through a dark building with props for 2-3 minutes before hitting the lift.

The only problem I anticiapte with making the pre-lift track a sort of dark ride experience is that only those in the front row will be able to see everything. The view from the second row to the last row is quite limited...what will those sitting in the middle really be able to see?

Den,

I like that idea, I dont think 2-3 minutes is possible, but certainly for maybe 30 seconds. And mamoosh, what if the experience was almost completely dark and the effects were mostly sound and strobe lights so that it would really matter what seat you were in?

How about DV style seating? Or just two abreast? I think there are plenty of options. Always keep in mind that in engineering, almost everything is possible.

I don't think B&M will go into anything similar to the DV seating or 2 across. the four across IMO is what makes B&Ms standout from other companies.

Hey Den, try the Dragon Coaster at Legoland Carlsbad. Starts out in a castle filled will animated legos. Finishes with a short coaster ride. VERY cool thinks me.
