Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Very exciting stuff! Also, the strange metalwork they mentioned is likely for the maintenance bay and transfer track, the same type of metal can be seen on Invadr in its bay.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

^It was said on the planning application that it's all wood, not a hybrid. The wood just goes straight onto the steel brackets which are attached to the footers.

Re: Thorpe Park - General Discussion

^Not to be too negative or anything but seriously, how have they possibly not managed to get Timber Tug Boat and the other drop ride open yet? I find that really bad to say they've barely had to do anything with it or the area to get it installed

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Really hoping it'll be open by the 27th, seems like that could be possible with the staff testing going on right now and everything else that's happened over the last few days!

Re: SW8

^I was thinking the same thing, but if they're planning on starting construction on the site before the end of the season then my feeling is that it would be for something in 2017 and not 2018

Well Altons comments on their Facebook page are certainly quite interesting regarding the future of the site and the plans they have

Re: SW8

^I really think that if it was going ahead in 2017, we'd have seen a full application by now. Really hope i'm wrong though

Re: SW8

^Id imagine that if SW8 was going ahead in 2017 we'd have already seen a full planning application or at least be seeing one within the next month

Re: SW8

Well if SW8 is going to happen in 2017 then we should be seeing a full planning application within the next month or two, if not, then it will certainly have been delayed

If things are going to plan then shouldn't we be seeing a full planning application within the next 3 months?

Although it looks very quiet in those Daily Mail pictures yesterday, i went today and although the rides were a walk on, the park itself was full.

Re: SW8

SW8 certainly will be in 2016. So are we expected to see plans arise this year?
