‘UK’s favourite rollercoaster’ confirmed to be returning next year

The UK's favourite rollercoaster will be returning next year.

The ‘UK’s favourite rollercoaster’ is back in 2024 and fans couldn't be more excited.

Take a look at the official teaser video below:

The ride has been a favourite among customers since it opened back in 1994, and the news of its closure left many people confused and quite upset.

For someone who hates rides, even I can appreciate the magic of this one, Europe’s first ever inverted rollercoaster.

Thrillseekers up and down the country were devastated when Alton Towers said they were closing the iconic rollercoaster in November 2022.

In a post to Facebook, the theme park said at the time: "By order of the Phalanx. Nemesis is closing. You have until 6th November to ride."

Commenting on the post on social media, one user said: "I was there the weekend it opened...Alton Towers please just don't...all my favourite childhood memories are there and always will be. I was only there last month too."

Another chimed in: "Wow I used to work on that ride 20 years ago, it was the star attraction then. What a ride."

Alton Towers said they were putting down a brand new track for 2024.

In an exciting update in April 2023, Bianca Sammut, Divisional Director at Alton Towers Resort, said: “As Europe’s first ever inverted rollercoaster, Nemesis rightly holds legendary status among thrillseekers.

“At Alton Towers Resort we’re committed to providing visitors with stand-out attractions that are unmatched by anyone else.

“Reaching this latest milestone in the transformation of Nemesis is a proud moment for everyone involved in the project.

“And for all thrillseekers out there it means the day we can take the wraps off our 'thrilliant' revamp is edging ever closer."

And last month, the theme park's official teaser video titled: "BACK WITH A VENGEANCE," got everyone hyped.

The video shows scientists getting attacked by a mythical creature holding a tablet that read: "Nemesis status: Active."

The clip, which has nearly 16,000 views, ends with the ride's famous eye and the caption: "Back with a vengeance 2024."

"Absolutely brilliant. The beast is alive!" one viewer commented.

"I hope the finished station is tip top to match the effort put into the ride and marketing, killing it Alton cant wait to get back in the new year," added a second.

"Nemesis has to be the best marketed coaster in the world (and in a world from a another dimension)," someone else said.

Let's hope it lives up to the hype.
