Re: SW9

Hate to say this but SW9, Flats, General investment is likely to be very few and far between over the next few years with the announcement that Merlin is to slow spending at all of its parks (not including legoland), this is not good for the future of developments and rides at the park

Those latest bents look overbanked to me!

Not sure about Overbanked but certainly there is a good degree of banking on them, i think that with that banking the lift could well be launched to some certain degree.

Re: SW8 Construction Discussion

Hi all, I've been following the forum for the past few weeks as SW8 construction has been developing. I thought I'd finally make an account so I can be a bit more active!  Anyway, thanks to everyone for the pictures and the constant updates. I do think however it's unlikely we are getting a launche...

What is the actual purpose of the change in gradient?


Just as a theory here is this because of the Alton power issues, if they are using LSM/LIM for the launch wouldn't this mean less power drain to launch the train ?

Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

If it doesn't return next year, I can't see that it ever will. Usually i would agree however i believe whole heartedly that the Alton Flume removal is having an effect in the plans to refurb LL, they have not even started removing the flume at Alton yet and i believe they will use the components fr...

Re: Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Went to BPB last weekend its been a long time since my last visit and i was really surprised by how much the park had changed, Infusion is a good ride but OUCH !, the Big one was VERY rough and no wind, its certainly starting to show its age now and BPB may want to start looking at how they can keep...

Re: The Next Big Attraction

I've changed my mind about the Intamin hyper! This video of Mack's new very-nearly-hyper coaster in China looks incredible! Can't believe I only just found out about it and I think it'll be perfect for Thorpey. The question is if they do add one, do they add an inversion which'll be incredible in t...

Re: Dollywood

PIGEON FORGE (WATE) – Officials at Dollywood say a motor locked up on its new Lightning Rod roller coaster causing some visible smoke, a photo of which became heavily circulated on Instagram. Spokesman Pete Owens says the ride was not open and no one was riding at the time. The ride did not catch on...

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

Just had a closer look at the promo photos from Thorpe on Facebook and the shot of derren with the woman with the VR set on and if you zoom in you can see in the centre what looks like a small camera. The topic of the Vive's camera function has already been covered in this topic, read through the t...

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

Currently the DBGT webpage still is stating Arriving 6th May, not a definite i know but cant see them still trying to sell tickets on this premise if it will be delayed. the website would be the first to change i would have thought.

Re: Which SW coaster do you think will be removed first

The last thing towers will want to do is remove Nemesis, its legendary status still attracts visitors even at 21 years old if im completely honest i cant see any of them being removed in the near future (next 5 years) but possibly long term i can see oblivion being removed due to the fact that its n...

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

The fact that AT management are being so tight-lipped about this is worrying. This is the third consecutive day that The Smiler has been closed, yet there is no mention of it on the website, questions on Facebook and Twitter are also being ignored. I was browsing tweets earlier with #TheSmiler and ...
