[2024] Nemesis Reborn - Update Timeline

This topic has been locked. No further replies can be posted.


TS Administrator
As we head toward the 2023 season, it's clear there's going to be a lot of updates, speculation and discussion about Nemesis. The last few weeks has shown that some people love to speculate off the back of these updates, others just want to see what's going on.

So, for my sins I've spent the last few hours getting together as much of the factual information from our own social media, website and from member's posts in this very forum and collated them into one topic (I regret everything). The aim is to have a timeline of aggregated factual updates on how the Nemesis re-track project has progressed since the application for a Certificate of Lawfulness was applied for back in January last year.

Where the information has been fetched from member's posts in the Nemesis topic, I've credited them and linked to the original post as well as the source of the information (website, YouTube, social media) where necessary. That way those who want to talk about the updates can do so in the discussion topic. To try and keep things accurate, the dates listed for some updates may refer to the date the photos were taken rather than the date the information was posted to the forum.

This post will remain locked, and over the course of the next year or so the team will automatically collate the factual updates within the main Nemesis topic and continually add them here. As well as making it easier for people to take a quick look at what's going on, it should also end up being a really handy thing to look back on to see how the project progressed. The updates obviously won't appear here immediately, we all have day jobs after all - but we'll be checking every day or so and adding to the topic as time goes on.

Just to clarify though, this does not mean that the discussion topic is to become a free for all. The same rules still apply - a reminder of the basics:
  • If you're posting image updates from elsewhere - please obtain permission to post them, otherwise you should be linking to their website/social media. You should also properly credit them.
  • In all cases of posting videos, images or links to news articles, please ensure you are adding your own views. We are of course first and foremost a discussion forum.
  • Speculation is fine, but keep it sensible. If you've made your views clear on what you'd like to see in the past, they do not need to be repeated again and again.
  • The odd joke is fine, but please - don't overdo it and ruin the flow of the topic.
  • If you see something which is against the above, please don't start to get involved in backseat moderating, use the report button and the team will review it and take action if necessary.
We've split the past updates into different posts representing different stages of the project. The aim for 2023/start of 2024 is to have a post for each month with the updates contained within.

The Planning and Speculation Stages ⬆️

21st January 2022​

Application for a Certificate of Lawfulness is submitted to Staffordshire Moorlands District Council. This isn't a full planning application, just a request for the planning authorities to confirm that the work can legally go ahead without a formal planning application needing to be made.
Planning Application | Posted by Matt N

24th January 2022​

Application documents appear on the Staffordshire Moorlands Planning website. The work consists of:
  • Replace parts of the coaster track, which will now be sand filled to deaden the noise. The lift hill, station and brake run track will remain
  • Replace 89 of the 117 supports
  • Remove and replace 636 bolts
  • Carry out maintenance to the rides station building and theming
  • Strengthen certain footers and foundations of the ride

Reports that the intention is for Nemesis to remain closed across the entirety of the 2023 season and to reopen in 2024
Posted by Astrodan

13th August 2022​

In a Q+A with John Wardley at the the TowersTimes@20 birthday event, with the Nemesis re-track still not officially confirmed, he discussed the planned changes to the ride
John Wardley said:
There’s nothing I would do to change the profile of that ride. Yes, times have moved on in terms of technology, so there will be changes made. But you can rest assured the ride as you know it will not change. It will still be the same thrilling ride, it’ll ride as smooth as it ever did on the day it opened. It will be as fast or even faster than ever, and so you don’t need to worry about Nemesis. Nemesis is save I think for another 30 years

Closure Confirmed and Final Rides ⬆️

21st September 2022​

The closure of Nemesis is confirmed. The coaster will close on Sunday 6th November, the final day of the 2022 season. In social media posts and marketing emails, Alton Towers stated this is "By Order of The Phalanx". The post does not state that the ride is reopening, which brought a lot of confusion in the comments by those who believed the ride was going to be permanently closed rather than re-tracked. Elsewhere, posters had appeared overnight in multiple locations across the park advertising the closure.

A post on reddit shows black inverted coaster track outside of Clermont Steel Fabricators in Ohio. The plant is known for manufacturing B&M's coaster track. Although taken from a distance, it appears the track is glossy black, indicating a final finish rather than primer. With no other coasters under construction at present, speculation mounts that a track colour change could be coming.
