That's lookin' really cool. The theming looks like it will actually be okay and the coaster will be awsome as usual.

I talked with the Dippin' Dots guy and he assured me that Cedar Point was to get that 10-inversion terra-woodie-invert-stand-up because Magnum is sinking. The current construction is for the new super-Dippin' Dots stall he is to run.

Yeah, too bad they are just gonna make a half volcano but it's better than nothing. The volcano theming at the front do look really cool. But the volcano at Tokyo Disney Sea is still the best one i've seen, it's a tough one to beat :-).

I'm most curious about how it'll look inside the tunnel.

Just a question, does B&M make any pull trough with a car or something or is it just Intamin that does that?

i dont think B&M do pull throughs like intamin. they just let a train go round the circuit. testing has been pushed back a day by the way, and is due to start at about 3pm (give or take an hour or two) on thursday. i know of one site that is going to have an in park video thanks to a cosign AG worker, and other websites are gonna have pics and things so i will give you all links when they appear

So is the "plotline" of Nemesis Inferno related to the plotline of Nemesis?

no, its marketing. nemesis is the best known coaster in the UK so by sticking nemesis in the rides title, people (the general public) automatically know what type of ride it is

I didn't even notice the wheel cover was gone. That's kinda cool seeing a B&M run without the cover. Wow, this coaster looks incredible. The only beef I have is it's got Nemesis tagged onto the name. But if it's good for business and letting people know, whatever. This ride will probably be amazing and pull some high Gs.

I was under the impression that "Nemesis" was only being used to promote the ride and it would be dropped when the ride opened. I don't know if that's going to happen or not, but I'm sure hoping it does. :)

The official statement was that "Nemesis" was just a prefix so the GP would know what kind of ride Inferno was going to be, because Nemesis is well-known in England. Doubts are beginning to surface now, because the park is still calling the ride Nemesis Inferno.

I still don't see what the Nemesis prefix has got to do with the ride. I can link a volcano with the word Inferno, but Nemesis and volcano?
