We need to stay optimistic. There are more frequent updates on the project than there has ever been before, which is encouraging.

Re: Project 2020

Thorpe is not big enough to warrant different permitted heights in different areas. There is no set limit - each planning application is considered on a case by case basis.

Well, until we see sight of the next medium term development plan..

Re: Universal Orlando Resort

Roughness has never been an issue. The rides have dwindled in popularity due to the fact that they don't duel any more because of a lengthy lawsuit following a loose item incident. Regardless, the queue has never been that long in recent years as they are based at the back of the park and are extrem...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Nice video update. Anyone else think that it is actually has a very similar first drop to Nemesis..

Project 2020

Members at the SouthParks Summer Sizzler on July 15th were introduced to Project 2020 which looks to be Thorpe Park Resort's next major attraction. http://www.towerstimes.co.uk/staff/chris/2020.jpg At present, nothing has been confirmed but we can speculate that the attraction will be a large roller...

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

It doesn't look to have a very big first drop, similar to Nemesis. Will the drop be a curved drop, similar to Mystic Timbers, or a flat turn followed by a straight down drop? ;) Whatever style it is, John Wardley said at TTSP@15 that it will be a lot more thrilling than originally planned before hi...

I'd be surprised if Vekoma don't sell a lot of these. What a great looking ride!

Re: London Entertainment Resort - General Discussion

Paramount has never really had the strongest IP's anyway - I still have high hopes for the project.

Good point about Motiongate - it is a very well presented park with completely mixed attractions. We just need that on a bigger scale with some quality rides and coasters.

Re: Six Flags General Discussion

Yes they are repainting the track green, and the supports to yellow - looks great so far.

It will reopen with the new Justice League dark ride - no date has been set but I assume they want to get it open in time before schools go back late August.
