    Hi all, I found this video quite a lot of people might be interested in, brought to us by UkThrillss original thanks to towerstimes and towers street.

    http://youtu.be/56XgY52eGIU

    It is a montage of pictures from Nemesis when it was being constructed. Enjoy!

    Fantastic video, which really makes you appreciate how much landscaping took place to build this ride.

    It is also a miracle that the station themeing had latest as long as it has when you see the materials it was made out of. I really hope that it gets some TLC soon, and the entire ride is restored to its former glory.

    Hopefully it will have its tlc next season for it's 21st. I really want the blood rivers back.(not the pinkish ones from last season,the original dark red dye).the Lodges, New Flat and nemesis restored is what I want next season.By the way next time you visit you'll see the tree which is still there. Do a quick google search of nemesis construction and there is loads of videos of Nemesis and sub terra construction, I might post some here later.

    Great vid- little did AT and John W realise at the time of construction just what a world class phenomenon of a ride this was going to turn out to be!

    Nothing is more annoying than a link that pretends to be a video, when in fact it is just a slideshow of low-res images.

    If you read the text below, you would've realised it was a slideshow.

    Not only is it a fantastic look at how they built it. But also just how times have changed. No hi-vis jackets. Hardly any safety signs.

    We will just ignore the fact they have stolen the pictures we took in the archives that we original posted when we where on TT and have here on TS too shall we.

    I really get wound up when other groups repackage other peoples hard work and effort as their own....

    I've now credited both towerstimes and towersstreet as the original sources for the pictures.

    You shouldn't have stolen them in the first place. TowersStreet should report this as theft of copyright have have the video removed.

    I thought it was a YouTube video from someone else so I have them the credit in the first place but feel free to remove the video if it is. Anyway sorry for not crediting it as TowersStreet in the first place because I saw the YouTube video before I looked at the gallery when someone else told me it was TowersStreet pictures from the gallery on here. Mods feel free to remove if you want
