X:NoWayOut will be refurbished in the near future, as it scores relatively low on the park exit surveys suggesting it's not popular or liked by most visitors It would be almost impossible to alter the track layout, without removing parts if not all of the building The coaster itself is fine, the par...

Colossus is a production model coaster, so i don't understand why people are upset that is been cloned, it's actually taken longer for somebody to order one than i personally expected What will always make Thorpe Park's Colossus unique no matter how many other ten inversion coasters Intamin sell, is...

Me too Adz, wonder if it's the one that's just been removed from Brighton Pier?

This will be the park's third inverting ship ride, the first The Hawk (Huss Ranger) came in 1997, it was removed the same season! The Voyager (Fabbri Skymaster) opened in 1999 and was also removed the same season

They have annouced so far one new ride will be added to the park for 2006, the new ride is called "The Skyrider" and is described as "a rock 'n' roll of a ride"

Does anybody have any information on what the ride actually is?

Doesn't sound like a Topple Tower unfortunately :-(

Thanks for the link evil cod, XLR8 would make an interesting buy for a park, its not often you get to purchase a used arrow suspended swing coaster they certainly offer a slightly unusual coaster experience for the general public

Wow i love aerial photos its interesting to see the parks from a different perspective than you usually do

The Chessington one reminded me how cool Vampire is, it's a shame more parks don't really use the terrain to make the most of customised coaster routes

Very sad news, personally I see the removal of Missile as the final nail in the coffin for the park. The park has suffered with declining visitor numbers, and has decided to adopt a strategy of offering children’s rides because (1) they can lease them from Zamperla at a fraction of the cost of insta...
