Re: The Blue Barnacle (formerly Black Buccaneer)

Seeing as this is the replacement for Black Buccaneer, I thought a new topic would be in order. :)

Who's looking forward to seeing the new ride when it arrives later this year?

I wonder if it will be the same model or a completely new model using a similar base area. There are new foundations, so we should expect this new ship to be with us for a long time. 

It's a brand new ride. It is no longer going to be a Huss (or so I'm told).

Re: Black Buccaneer

Chessington has confirmed via their Social Media channels that a new ship is coming to the park and they are asking for help naming it.

Re: Chessington - General Discussion

So it seems Black Buccaneer, Seastorm and Tiger Rock still haven’t completed winter maintenance which is disappointing considering Chessington has been open for the 2019 season for a bit now. Has anyone got any updates on these. I’m going on Weds but looks unlikely they’ll be open soon from what I’...

Re: Safari Lodges Development

It's a shame the bar has been cut, but still has the potential to be a lovely development. Just to confirm, the bar hasn't been 'cut'. It'll be part of a secondary expansion application once the initial set of Lodges is built. Essentially, Chessington ran into huge problems with the original applic...

Re: Chessington - The Future

The field at the corner of the Vampire and Dragon's Fury has been earmarked for development for a fair while, and I could see it nicely housing a wooden coaster, given how they've implemented Wicker Man. It's to my understanding that they can't build on that green area next to Dragons Fury as it is...

Just to confirm, it's not 'Almost' complete. Land of the Tiger is complete bar snagging which is on going by the contractors.

Re: Chessington - General Discussion

It's a concept that was drawn up by John Burton. It's not an official concept and one that was put together before he went on to work for Merlin Entertainments.

Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

I doubt it'll re-open. Dragon Falls had a lot of work done to add in new evacuation platforms and steps that are most likely too costly on Loggers and Flume. So I believe it's a H&S thing.

Oh, I know that. The transit system is fab and works great, it's the VR that's the issue.

Re: Ninjago Masterclass - 2017 Attraction

Rode the one in Billund on Thursday. Great attraction. So much fun, the shooting is tricky but the ride experience will be great for Windsor. Not sure how it'll do capacity wise though.

Re: Thrilling Coaster

Toadies / Peeking Heights / Mystic East is more than likely where the next 'big addition / coaster' will go once the park have finished fixing everything up. At the moment, the parks 'Putting the Theme back into Theme Parks' programme is what they are focusing on and when the park re-opens for this ...
