Oblivion.

High throughput means you'll go round more times in the time available - plus people would probably donate more (or be more willing to donate) if it's a ride you've never been on and are reasonably worried about riding.


[Edit: I swear I wasn't copying what several people put in the other thread... I hadn't read it when I made this post! unsure.gif]

I'd say Oblivion. It's over much quicker than Nemesis, so in theory, you'll get on it more.

It's gotta be the big O.B hasn't it really? Simply because it's just so well known as being the mother of all fear-machines, it's common knowledge almost, even a complete theme park virgin knows that Oblivion is The One.
People will feel sorry for you and cough up more. Nemesis, despite being as intense as she is, just wouldn't get the same kind of sympathy vote.

I think you should ride air seeing as you like it so much but cos it isn't on there Oblivion, i rode it for the 1st time this year and don't worry it gives you such a buzz that you'll want to ride it again and again smile.gif

I had an idea today but I'm not entirely sure whether it would work.

Could I do the one 'first-time-fear-factor' ride on Oblivion and then do the actual marathon on Nemesis?

(I'm not trying to cop out here, just a thought smile.gif)

Good idea. Why not do half the day on Oblivion and half on Nemesis??

Ok guys.

I've really thought about this - the poll was more to build up a pros and cons in my head as opposed to a straight vote - and I've made my decision.

I'm going to do Oblivion once in the day, but the marathon will be on Nemesis.

My main reason for this decision is that I won't have miles of queue to trawl and the SRQ (I have heard) is a lot better managed.

I contacted two local newspapers today, and also Granada Reports. Interviews and pics are definitely in the papers from next week, haven't had any confirmation from the news channel but I'll let you know.

Date is as yet uncertain, but it's definitely going to be before Sept 30th, as that's when I clear off to uni!

Katie

Agreed with above poster. I don't want you to have a heart attack! Actually tbh at your age the worst that could happen is an overload of adrenaline. But that could kill you too.
