There was enough commentary about Nemesis that I had to do some research. It does indeed look like a uniquely fun ride, however you gotta give it some major demerits for the dilapidated condition of both the track and the grounds. Yuck! Is the rest of the park that much of a pit?
(On a side note, Patriot at Worlds of Fun, as far as I can tell, is exactly the same layout as Talon at Dorney. A good ride, but not long enough to be considered great).
Anyway, of the remaining coasters I gotta go with Montu but mainly as a "no" vote to Non-Dueling Dragons. I would have probably picked Alpengeist as my favorite inverted given the opportunity (sorry, Robert).
One note about Montu, the layout incorporates a "batwing" element (Afterburn has one as well, I think...), which was pioneered on the Orient Express coaster (called a Kamikaze Curve, back then) at my very own local park, Worlds of Fun. Much of my hatred of Cedar Fair stems from the fact that they came in and tore the Orient down without so much as moment to reflect and say goodbye.
Curse you Cedar Fair and all your stationary carnivals.
