Why do parks build these coasters next to highways and parking lots? Ugh. Nothing takes you out of the magic faster than a badly placed attraction.
(The rumors ARE true, I AM a theme park snob!!!!!!)
Shambhala shows just what B&M can do when the park are willing to pay for it.
Having ridden both here (a rare thing in this competition!) I will go with Nemesis. It's not my favourite at Alton Towers - thats Oblivions spot - but it's certainly a unique and brilliant coaster. It's what all B&M's stateside wish they were. If you haven't ridden it - do it soon before she gets too old!
I know it's not the same as being there, but from the videos only, Nemesis seems amazingly well-themed because of the way it works so perfectly with the surrounding terrain, while Shambhala just felt like a big - okay, a REALLY, really big - coaster in someone's muddy, dug-up backyard. Do they ever plan to theme, or even just landscape, this ride a little?
