Re: Thorpe Park - The Future

Very odd limit to have. I would however put my faith in a hyper being the next coaster. I cannot see Thorpe getting an RMC at all in the foreseeable.

Re: SW8

The newspapers have done nothing to change plans. The smiler, I am aware, will open at the beginning of next season exactly how it was. The window for planning for SW8 is between now and april\may time. Sw8 I am made aware is 2017 unless there are complications, and by that I do not mean the media.

Re: Thorpe Park - New Indoor Attraction 2016

Possibly a mixture of hex and an actual ride. Trackless possibly, or something much more thrilling?

Re: The Future Of Scarefest

The scare zones on the whole were awful. Zombies was ok, but box was just dismal to be honest.

Re: SW8

I think the idea is that the planning will distract from the immanent smiler opening, as scarefest also did. It is merely an attempt to continue as normal whilst distracting away from the smiler.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I cannot wait to ride it when open. It was very unfortunate what happened and the general luck of the ride, but its a fantastic ride still!

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I have heard it will open next season, exactly the same as it was. Pure enthusiasts and on park rumours, but that's what I think is quite likely.

Re: SW8

I've heard it is certainly forbidden valley, and that it is 2017 if all goes well. There is no pushback.

Re: Thorpe Park - New Indoor Attraction 2016

So WC16 is more likely to be a walkthrough attraction from that?

Re: Planning Application for Enhancements to Air

I think the pre show and instruction building is likely to include the current paving area next to the air queue line. I don't know where, or indeed if, there will be one but I'd assume that personally.

I wouldn't be surprised to see IMAscore audio too.

Re: Planning Application for Enhancements to Air

Yeah, it will be good for keeping crowds away from other coasters. I hate air and still will by the sounds of it.

Re: Planning Application for Enhancements to Air

Absolutely. I was told the information by a source I will not be naming for obvious reasons, so don't even try. Seems fairly logical given recent developments anyway.

Re: Planning Application for Enhancements to Air

Air is VR and will be called galactic. It is dark navy blue track and air blue supports.

Re: New Theme Park attraction(s) for 2016?

We need a flat ride for 2016. Be it in X sector, FV or DF, we need a thrill flat.

Re: The Future of The Flume

What do people see in the closure of the flume for the remainder of this season? A sign or redevelopment or removal, perhaps?
