Well, it is in the plans so it's hardly suprising.

Even though xcelerator and stealth are the same size, if you look at an xcel photo of the top hat and a stealth top hat pic stealth looks much bigger, or is it just me.

Way better than rita's theming, i think this could be the worlds best themed rocket coaster.


No offence but i really dont think so. It wont beat Superman at movie world Australia. That looks to be the best roket coaster yet, along with storm runner IMO and is said to have amazing themeing when it is done. :D In fact, that 4ride is actually my wallpaper on my desktop because it looks so nice. :D

Has any one noticed the fencing that has been completed?

http://www.thorpepark.co.uk/images/expl ... aining.JPG


It creates the hap hazard look, but if they are really going to call it The edge dont you think the themeing is wrong? The Edge creates a clean cut, futuristc feel (to me anyway) and the fencing just isnt as clean cut as the name portrais.

What does everyone else think? The fencing makes me think of the Dukes of Hazard!LOL
Kinda Texan style!

Actually looking at the photo is this the finished fencing? It looks to calculated to be tempory fencing?

Anyway any one have any ideas?

I just want to know what colour they will paint the fencing as with the right colour it could look very good.

That is the real fence that will be used and that is the colour of it, all they have to do now is staine it, basically it will be like ritas.

No-one has ever said it will be called "The Edge". That was an option in a joke pole on the main site. amoungst the likes of "Johnny Rocket". To be honest, i dont think it will be called any of the names on that pole.[/quote]
What a fad.

If you read back a few pages i think you will find at one point someone said the name MAY be 'The Edge'.

Thorpe Park are cutting it abit later for the name release arent they ?

It says late (ish) Novemeber so we should expect it soon (next couple of days if all goes to plan) :D
Yesterday\'s the past, tomorrow\'s the future, but today is a gift. That\'s why it\'s called the present.

If you watch the video of the area thats on the Thorpe Park web site it shows the Q-Line in a nice green colour so maybe it will be stained then painted green. :) Cant wait to take some picys of this next year :D

I hope The queline is much better than Ritas. Also i hope they cover them horrid support foundations up! Rita looks incredibly horrid with all them nuts and bolts poking out the ground.
Hopefully the quelines will of been sanded or something, its amazing to count the ammount of splinters iv had in my hands and also massive splinters i had got in an old coat!

The name however - I aint really fussed, im just hoping it isnt summat crap or cheesy. i want something normal but Fantastic! (if ya know what i mean)
