X:\ No Way Out

Wed Feb 08, 2006 4:51 pm

I thought that x:/ no way out needs a refurbishment its so dull and hot inside i think a re design with loops make it faster and perhaps make the que better wat do u think?

I think at the moment Thorpe should leave X: No way out as it is, and spend money where they need to, however i do think the themeing could be generally cleaned up and kept looking nice.

X NWO should be turned into a LIM coaster with inversions. It would be sweet in my opinion. At this moment in time X NWO is a waste of space at least 4 amazing flat rides could be built there in its place, or even better 4 indoor flats.

X:NoWayOut will be refurbished in the near future, as it scores relatively low on the park exit surveys suggesting it's not popular or liked by most visitors

It would be almost impossible to alter the track layout, without removing parts if not all of the building

The coaster itself is fine, the park have to come up with ways to make what happens on-route more exciting, probably adding some themeing, lighting/sound and atmospheric effects would do the trick and creating a story to the ride, as it confuses people that there is no point to the experience in the present state, i guess people need to feel like they've acomplished something, like a quest or mission, or experienced a story from start to finish

Personally i believe the inside queue needs sorting out as there's not much point to it anymore, and i'm sure as Fright Maze is far more profitable use of the corridor space

I like the ride generally as it is, though it does need a lick of paint and a bit of refurbishing. Just a few new tweaks added to it is all X:/No Way Out needs in my opinion.

Thorpe Park have 3 great coasters in NI, Colossus and Stealth (well, should be). X:/ is frankly an embarassment and the worst major rollercoaster in any of the Tussauds parks in the UK.

I dont think that X should be refurbished. But demolished and a dark ride be built there. Its an ideal spot for a dark ride in my opinion. I have no idea how they could theme it, as Lost City doesnt exactly have a theme that stands out, which is what a dark ride really needs.

I dont think it should be refurbished. Knock it down, or leave it. Its had too many facelifts and they are all half assed. It will just look messy, besides the ride is naff.

I thin it needs a retheme more than anything else, but refurbishment will do.

I dont think a refurb is needed, it needs demolishing, possibly the whole building.

I think the layout of the ride's okay actually. Yeah, its nothing special, but its interesting enough. The thing that I would change/add to, is some sort of effects to keep you interested as you trundle round in there. That'd liven it up a bit.

Ive voted no to it being refurbished as like Matt said it just needs demolishing and a whole new ride place on the site.
