Nemesis will return in 2024 following its exciting transformation. Details of the transformation are being kept under wraps for now with more information to be revealed nearer the time

The History of Nemesis

Nemesis comes from another dimension, one that has been beyond the ability of the best specialists to understand.

Jettisoned to Earth over 2 million years ago Nemesis remained buried deep beneath the ground at Alton Towers Resort. Until she was disturbed by workmen during routine maintenance, the monster that lay dormant was unleashed, boiling with anger she wreaked havoc on the surrounding area. 27 years ago The Phalanx immediately launched their extreme security division to pin down the creature and disable it.

27 years ago, it took 200 men, 250 tonnes of bent and twisted steel to hold her down. We converted the steel that imprisons the creature into the tangled rollercoaster you see here today.

Anyone who rides Nemesis should remember her history. To those who understand her, she is a thing of beauty. To the rest of us, you’ve been warned.
