As many may know Thorpe Park earlier announced that they will be adding a new attraction for 2015.

BIG NEWS COMING SOON.... Look out for clues and see if you can guess what our new attraction for 2015 is....

So what do you think it will be? Will it open in May or March? What do you think?

Probably a relocated Carousel

Swimming - fish
Choking - danger
Rocking baby - sleep possibly?
What is behind him in that video?
Thorpe Shark Hotel.

How does it relate to an attraction though? :-k

I think it won't be anything major. I mean, if they are doing a huge expensive ride next year, surely this will be quite small.

Look at Alton Towers - they added a whole area last year and now this year they are adding a new accommodation, adventure course and a little coaster.
However I only see something small in terms of ride - top spin or something along that price range for a thrill, although I'm not sure it will be a thrill ride myself.

This will probably be a filler flat, nothing too big, possibly a family thrill :) as people have said, they won't be spending a massive amount this year with what is to come :)

Where does it say it's a ride? Attraction is just something that would attract people to the resort...

I really hope they don't bring in Sea Life. That would be such a let down after all this. Maybe they are bringing in a swim with sharks thing :lol In all seriousness, i have no idea what that clue is but it will be great to see more clues.

actually, yes, kirsty is right! looking at this now remembering what kirsty said, this could be something that uses some already existing facilities (not too familiar with Thorpe as a whole, so don't know what could be used for this) and easily create an experience based attraction :) (I say already existing due to the lack of any planning app as far as I know regarding anything new at Thorpe :))

I've changed my mind. Its not sealife. Its I'm a celebrity. Snake rock is the name of a camp in I'm a celebrity. Bear in mind i'm just guessing

After looking at the various comments, I think it could be a retheme of Flying Fish to a shark theme. We know from Chessington that they retheme it as a new attraction, and they closed FF early for maintenance. Maybe this was partially because it was being renovated as well?

Thorpe Park's Twitter has just posted a second clue: https://twitter.com/THORPEPARK/status/5 ... 3029878785

I'm certainly intrigued as to what this could be hinting at, there's certainly a few plausible suggestions flying around.

I'm not too sure that it could be anything to do with flying fish, they posted a photo of it on facebook on February 3rd in the snow and it looked like all was normal. they'd have to start on a re theme a bit earlier to make sure it's open in time. Thorpe are really confusing me tonight!

I'm convinced it is a shark themed mini sealife like Sharkbait reef at Alton Towers.

I feel like this will be more on the 'resort' side of things, rather than a 'ride' of sorts. I believe the park plan on really pushing RnR and so they'd really need more things to do to cope with the crowds who'd be mulling around the park rather than standing in queuelines. Neptune's beach retheme could be a possibility in my eyes. It'd be nice to see a Sea Life type-thing there in my opinion, only because I love Sea Life though.

Also, the picture clue Thorpe tweeted really reminds me of a ray.
