The one guy I saw in NST uniform was a geek. Saw him riding Wicker Man later on in the day
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.Perhaps this could all signal that that location will be used for something eventually, but I'd pretty much rule out any NST return.
I wouldn't say it is that much of a leap. The rumours of the Nemesis Overhaul/re-tracking have been circulating for quite some time now. Nemesis Sub-Terra also being rumoured as returning to fill the gap in rides in that area. It may have even been on the park's mind for a long time, if the smiler accident hadn't happened there would already be another rollercoaster in the area and the Sub-Terra building would have been gone, as it is still there that seems like the obvious choice to replace the missing attraction in the area even if it is just for one season. Sightings of work taking place on Sub-Terra, and nothing happening in there for Scarefest. The fact that the park often use Scarefest to tease things happening the following season, and actors being employed by the park to wander around in outfits worn by Sub-Terra ride staff. As much as I don't like the idea of Nemesis being closed for a full season, what we are seeing, coupled with the rumours we have been hearing all ties together nicely.
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.
