8. Hungarian Hortail
9. Nemesis Inferno
11. Batman @ SFMM
12. Batman @ SFOG
Great Bear - Unique, fun, floaty. A very underrated invert.
Alpengiest - The first half of this ride is better than anything below it! It's just a shame the midcourse grinds it to a hault, could be number 1 of the inverts
Afterburn - A bit too strong on the positives for my liking.
Batman at SFOG - Wayyy too strong on the positives for my liking
Nemesis - Hopefully retrack gives it the necessary love to get back on top!
Black Mamba - Goes to the top after some truly incredible night rides at Wintertraum in 2021.
Batman at SFMM - Dropped as I found Batman at SFOG absolutely disgusting to ride.
That was pretty much my experience upon riding it in 2019; however, my 2022 ride was significantly better, and now I consider it one of the best B&Ms I’ve done. I think Nemesis is prone to having some bad days, and on those it is a decent ride, but nothing more. When did you ride it?4. Nemesis - Dare I say here's where the quality drops again... I just don't get the hype. The first half is excellent, i'll give you that. I love the uniqueness of the first drop directly into the corkscrew. It's a nice punchy start to the ride, especially when combined with the wild helix that tears your face off. But then the ride dies. The zero g is... ok? Nothing compared to the Inferno inversion. Then once you hit the first stall the ride dies completely. The loop is surprisingly lacking in force, the second stall is dull and then the final corkscrew never fails to give me absolutely nothing. I wish I could appreciate the ride more, but honestly give me Oblivion, Smiler and Wicker Man any day over Nemesis.
Oh unfortunately i've visited the park many times over the years and the only memorable rides I have on it are from 2012's fireworks event where I managed to get some front row rides during the fireworks themselves. That was quite something, although sadly situational. It's unfortunately down there as one of the weaker B&M's for me. Galactica is pretty much the only one i'd score below. Even Kraken tops it. However that being said, i'm excited for the retrack. It's nice to see a much loved ride receive the attention it deserves.That was pretty much my experience upon riding it in 2019; however, my 2022 ride was significantly better, and now I consider it one of the best B&Ms I’ve done.
