Nemesis Inferno (Thorpe Park)

800px-Nemesis_Inferno

Nemesis Inferno is a steel inverted roller coaster at the Thorpe Park theme park in Surrey, England, UK. Its Layout was conceived and designed by John Wardley and then built by Bolliger & Mabillard with Werner Stengel providing the layout calculations (as he has with 100’s of rollercoasters), the same Swiss firm that built the related Nemesis inverted roller coaster at Alton Towers. As a result, Nemesis and Nemesis Inferno are often compared, with Nemesis being cited by many as a superior ride.

The 750-metre-long (2,460 ft) Nemesis Inferno is themed around an erupting tropical volcano. The ride stands 29 metres (95 ft) tall, features a top speed of 80 kilometres per hour (50 mph), and four inversions.

Statistics:
Length: 2,460.7 ft
Height: 95.2 ft
Inversions: 4
Speed: 47.9 mph
Duration: 1:43
G-Force: 4.5
Elements: Tunnel, Chain Lift Hill, Loop, Zero-G Roll, Interlocking Corkscrews

After leaving the station, the train takes a right-hand swing into a dark tunnel, where it is shot with simulated fire. It makes a brief left turn before entering the 29-metre-tall (95 ft) lift hill. At the top, it takes a long left-swing drop into its first inversion, a vertical loop right. This is followed by a zero-g roll, where riders experience a feeling of weightlessness. The ride then turns to the right and enters the first of the interlocking corkscrews, then enters a right-handed, over-banked turn before continuing through the second of the interlocking corkscrews. After a large right turn, followed by a sharp left turn, the car begins to brake. Following a small right turn, it continues to the station.
