Secret weapons?

Sat Oct 18, 2008 12:41 pm

If this should be in the quick questions thread, then sorry! :oops:

Anyway, since SW6 was announced, I've been thinking. We've had SW3, 4, and 5, but what happened to SW1 and 2?!

Anyone know?

I think SW1 was the arrow launch coster that didn't take off, (pardon the pun :P) And i don't know about SW2.

They were both Pipeline coasters to go where Nemesis is now.

There was talk about this in the SW6 topic:

SW2 was going to be an arrow pipeline coaster. when john wardley went to ride a prototype but he wasn't impressed as he thought it was dull and boring so the idea was scraped. not too sure about SW1 though.

I posted some photos of the ride that would've been the Secret Weapon in this topic a few months ago..

Hope that helps...

Secret Weapon 1 was an Arrow Pipeline coaster themed around a secret military facility.

More details and a great interview with John Wardley can be found in the link below.
