Went to Thorpe yesterday and tried my upmost to talk to anyone in a uniform to try and get some info.
Wouldn't of thought they'd buy anything from AT and i'm not entirely sure why they'd remove Quantum. It's a brilliant ride...
I spoke to one op and he said two new rides were coming next year. One from Alton Towers and another. He wouldnt tell me what one from AT but Quantum is being taken apart as we speak and looks as though its gonna be gone forever (thank god!).
Maybe Blade going there? Who knows.
Thorpe would not get Blade for 2 reasons:
1.) It's crap.
2.) Thorpe already a ride that does the exact same motion.
The coaster will be next to Samurai i'm 90% sure. That infill is for (read's Kaz's post) and then the hotel.
However.............. When i asked him about the coaster for next year, he smiled and said there are lots of rumours flying around, but said that there is alot of landfill going on behind Flying Fish and gave me a ltiitle smile.
There is nothing behind Samurai because they've been filling in next to Samurai. I don't think they will be doing much more infilling around that area for now.
Behind FF yes there is alot of filling going on, and nothing behind Samurai, mmmm makes you think!
Yep Detonator has had some major problems this season. Hasn't been able to open all day. And on my last visit 3 or 4 of the seats were defunct.
Also what has happened to detonator? Its useless, we were at the top for about 4 minutes when it went down, lucky it was quickly resolved and we were sent plumetting down. What is going on with it, its has had an awful year this year. Bloody Fabbri lol
An awful lot of "Visitors" walking around too with suits on and loads of paperwork. I tried my upmost to see if any of them had B & M on their name badges but unfortuantly to no avail.
Doubt you'd see any from a ride manufacturer as the ride plans will probably of been sent in for approval by now.
The sign is still there...
Well who knows. Quantum was proper in disrepair, The Quantumsinage had all been removed. Surely they wont remove it if they are waiting for a part.
Obviously we don't know for sure as there has been no press release but the rumours that have gone around and hints been said have shown Thorpe have been looking alot into a flyer so that seems like the best bet at the moment.
How do we know its a flyer anyway. Its all speculation. So my info is a s goods as anyone elses
