Okay so I was at Thorpe yesterday and saw where that cherry picker has parked.. however that's literally just it.. a cherry picker, 4 structure frames of The Swarms cars, and a few pallets with blankets over them.. so unless it's something to do with The Swarm.. i'm stumped :-k

Sorry for the double post..

Maybe Worlds First B&M 4D Cars for Swarm.


That would be interesting! Think a 4D element however would ruin some of the elements on the ride.. if anything the zero-g roll could use one and the straight twist could also use one.. but then again could ruin.. have to wait and see, could be an experience though!

Those 4 frames of Swarm cars are the old backwards rows.

Ah that makes sense.. thought by now they would of put them back into a storage facility, not just outside haha.. so now I'm guessing that it's either X that's going to be the new worlds first with the redevelopment, or it's a shop.

A worlds first shop attraction :lol

At the moment I don't think anyone actually knows that this worlds first thing will be. I doubt its anything too exciting, especially if its coming this summer, but if one is casting wished than I would love a couple of Summer Nights on dates that I can do or a new Funrise to Funrise event please TP :lol

As reported on SouthParks Facebook, Thorpe Park have updated their website with details of the 'IS7AND EXTREMES CHALLENGE' which begins on 22nd July.

It has a similar format to that of Towers' Big Six Challenge, with guests using the resort's app to complete seven challenges in each of the Island's territories in order to earn a free return ticket for any date during 5th - 28th September.
