^I'm pretty sure that's what we've all been thinking it would probably be, similar to Extremis.
1. Skyrush | 2. Maverick | 3. The Voyage | 4. El Toro | 5. Outlaw Run
6. Millennium Force | 7. I-305 | 8. Medusa: SC | 9. X2 | 10. Phoenix

Looks like this really will go back to the original Nemesis story...

Drawings taken from the Nemesis comic. The Nemesis comic was available to buy as promotional merchandise at Alton Towers back when the ride was launched.

A military vehicle has been placed next to the construction site...

...that looks remarkably similar to this from the comic released at the time of Nemesis' launch.

The tent's banner also has a little nod to the past...

Merlin secures deal with Fox for Ice Age ride

Merlin Entertainments has teamed up with 20th Century Fox with the view of launching a 4D attraction based on the popular Ice Age movie franchise.

Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs - The 4-D Experience will debut at two Merlin parks in March 2012 - Alton Towers in the UK and Gardaland in Italy.

Designed and supplied by SimEx-Iwerks, the immersive attraction will combine 3D film footage from the third movie in the franchise, with an array of synchronized physical effects.

Upon exiting the 4D experience, guests will find themselves in an Ice Age-themed area where they can meet their favorite costume characters, as well as purchase branded merchandise.

Along with the new 4D attractions and gift shop, Alton Towers Resort will also feature two interactive Ice Age-themed bedrooms inside the theme park's Splash Landings Hotel.

^^That seems to be a very large, yet deep pit which to me does not appear to be a footer or a normal trench for coaster track, due to the fact that it's perfectly square and a couple dozen yards long on each side. Obviously I don't have access to the plans, but the first thing that is coming to mind is an underground drop tower.
