The world’s first vertical drop rollercoaster with a massive drop of 180 feet – Oblivion’s slogan is “don’t look down” – but if you dare to, it won’t fail to thrill!

Nemesis was Europe’s first ever rollercoaster where your legs dangle beneath you as you ride! Fly along a track of corkscrews and vertical loops at up to 80kmph and experience the G-forces that make this a favourite of thrill-seekers worldwide.

You’ll truly fly through the sky with the park’s unique aerial inversion coaster. Air has been designed to give you the feeling of weightlessness, with speeds of up to 46mph, and you face straight down for a true ‘birds’ eye view’.

Rita: Queen of Speed
