    Had a feeling that was the case, thanks for clarifying. :)

    I haven't done front row Nemesis in ages. Luckily, back 2 rows are usually achievable and did them numerous times earlier in the season, but I do enjoy a front row too

    Great news! I know it’s an unpopular opinion, but front row is easily my favourite row on Nemesis; I just love the raw sense of speed and exposure on the front compared to the other rows!

    Liking front row on Nemesis is not an unpopular opinion Matt.
    Not by a very long way.
    That is why people queue extra for it.

    I was under the impression that most people (or at least, most enthusiasts) preferred the back?

    Enthusiasts aren’t the biggest amount of people so the popular option would outweigh the enthusiast opinion.
    But generally I think front row or back row is best. Middle isn’t so great.

    And any old row end seat will do!

    Never done a B&M invert with the new vest restraints. I wonder what effect that would have on the ride experience of Nemesis should new trains be added as a result of any possible refurbishment?

    Those trains are heavier and wider then the standard trains so would be unsuitable for Nemmy's compact layout and near-misses.

    Seems unnecessary complication and cost to add the new trains

    I'm not suggesting they should by the way. I'm just intrigued as to what it would be like, especially since I've no experience of riding an invert with vests and I know some members have?

    Banshee is the only B&M Invert with the vest trains I think. Here's a recent review of it by Canobie Coaster. :)

    Is Nemesis going under a refurb next season? If so, will there be a flat ride opened in FV like sub terra to keep people coming?

    Nothing has been announced yet so I doubt it's next season- they'd have to give plenty of notice. However activity has been seen at Sub Terra's building so something could be happening with it soon

    Who knows? There's lot's of speculation and I presume they'll be one at some point. Like you say though they need another ride in forbidden valley really before they do it. Whether they'll bother to add one or just go for it who knows. I do hope if we see a refurbishment we say a major one with track work (preferably a full re-track).

    Like the notice we had for the Flume or Ripsaw going, or further afield the likes of the Mouse at Blackpool? Not saying it's going to happen, just best not to take a park's silence and lack of notice as reason for a ride not disappearing ;)
