    The one guy I saw in NST uniform was a geek. Saw him riding Wicker Man later on in the day

    Good to know, but the group of actors seem way less likely to be enthusiastics.

    The actors are recycling lines from the old Oblivion 'operative' character who was featured in The Magic Factory documentary as well as throughout the ride's construction in 1997. This is definitely an 'easter egg', at least of some sort.

    It's the Oblivion/Nemesis franchise crossover synergy that dreams are made of!

    Same outfits, different actors. Just to nip whether or not they are official or not in the bud.

    You guys do remember that they had an actual scare maze that incorporated the Phalanx and Easter eggs to NST, even hosted it in NST's actual ride building - yet NST never reopened after it right?

    Another one way too arrogant in dismissing the rumours.
    Have they moved the bins about and switched the wait lights to zero yet?

    Apparently the moving parts (seats, drop gondolas, pneumatics, cables, etc.) were removed in 2018/2019, but the physical tower truss that the entire ride is supported on and the car moves up and down on is still in place due to it being large and needing the roof removed to take it out, as well as having a literal ton of bolts holding it down. If that's true, then it's safe to say that the original ride almost certainly won't be coming back.

    It has been pretty common in the last few years for Merlin to move rides and parts around their attractions either for re-location (Lumber Jump, Peter Rabbits Hippity Hop etc) or for spares (Ripsaw).

    Given that there are various Dungeons attractions that feature the same ride system as NST around the world it is no surprise that they would strip out the useable parts for other locations. If it wasn’t so hard to get the actual ride out, I am sure that would have gone by now as well.

    Perhaps this could all signal that that location will be used for something eventually, but I'd pretty much rule out any NST return.

    This is my view on the matter. I think something will be put in there and it could potentially be next year (although I think that's unlikely). I think there's pretty much zero chance it will return in its old form as I think the ride system after being SBNO for so long is not going to be fit to return to service easily.

    I think (if it happens) it's likely to be some sort of walkthrough a bit like Black Mirror but hopefully without the IP. If done well and themed to the nemesis storyline it could actually be quite good.

    I think they have been discussed not rumoured. Lots of people have an opinion on it, but I don't think anyone had any insider knowledge that would lead to an actual rumour of re-opening or retracking, just wishful thinking.

    Looks like he's got the Phanalax logo on his cap :cool:
    They've definitely got to be teasing something, surely!

    I think it would be overly wishful thinking for the reuse of an old costume during Scarfest as a teaser for anything upcoming, considering that it happens more or less every year in one form or another.

    Over the years we've got a really good picture of how Alton Towers go about teasing future developments during Scarefest, and this doesn't fit that bill.

    Can I just chip in here with a reminder that this apparently greatly missed attraction left Alton Towers in a blaze of mediocrity, scoring the lowest guest rating of any ride at the resort by the time it was finally put out of its misery.

    I actually really liked the attraction (minus the pointless shouting at the start). It had great potential and gave me vibes of Alien Encounter at WDW which is still one of my all time fav attractions. NST wasn't as good obviously but it definitely had part of its charm.

    I doubt it will come back either but I pray to god they try. What a waste it is just sitting there.

    Just to clarify, the guy in the Phanalax uniform is definitely a guest, whereas the group in the other costumes (claiming to be part of a new organisation) are definitely actors.

    What a peculiar thing to do.
