Re: Rita - General Discussion

If SW9 doesn’t turn out to be a replacement for Rita, I think it would benefit from getting those newer OTSRs seen on Intamin rides like I305 and Maverick.

Don’t know how anyone didn’t notice, but Rumba Rapids has been removed from the THORPE PARK app.

Re: Project 42 (Nemesis Sub-Terra) - New for Scarefest 2018

I think that Project 42 confirms that Nemesis Sub-Terra isn’t coming back. They’ll most likely keep the maze in there, much like House of Monsters.

Re: SeaWorld San Diego

SeaWorld have announced Tidal Twister, a new coaster coming to San Diego by Syline Attractions. It seems to be a horizontal version of the infamous Harley Quinn: Crazy Coaster at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. It features a figure-8 circuit with an airtime hill and a zero-G roll in the middle. It will...

My dad has ridden it since opening year, and Sundaywas the 1st time he heard it, so I thought it was new.

Re: Nemesis - General Discussion

Forgot to mention this, but has no-one else noticed the most obnoxious new announcement ever. It features someone who sounds like a punk rock fanboy shouting things like “NEMESIS!!!! ENTER THE PIT OF VENGEANCE AT YOUR PERIL!!!!!”

Okay, I think I’ve recovered enough to finally talk about this monster of a ride in depth. Here we go:  Entering Well, just entering the ride area is incredible! As the courtyard was closed due to Scarefest, we had to go round, and as you turn the corner, everything in Mutiny Bay changes. The music ...

Re: Rate the Rollercoasters (2018 Edition)

Just one change since my trip yesterday. Rides which I rode them have a description.  1. Nemesis. Still as butter-smooth and intense as I remember.  2. Wicker Man. If I had to describe this in one word, it would be insanity. Back row is a must at the end of the day.  3. Galactica. Just loads of fun....

Re: Galactica - General Discussion

Had a good ride on Galactica yesterday, which was definitely helped by the fact that we cut our waiting time in half by not riding VR and being directed to station 2.
