Re: Is 'Saw' a good choice of theme for project Dylan?

I don't mind the coaster themed to horror, but they seem to be spreading it to other parts of Canada Creek, what with them moving that flat (can't remember name) from Lost City to here and giving it a SAW theme. I too love Canada Crek and don't want it spoiled by the sheer gore that is the SAW franchise...but i'm sure the rollercoaster shall be good. :)

Wow, the third phallus shaped ride from Thorpe Park.

Is this all just to prove they have a bigger metaphorical dick than Alton Towers?

Just to let everyone know this ride will have cameras fitted to the trains in order to enable you to buy a DVD of your experience if you so wish. It is also being built at a cost of £13.5 million.

£13.5 million for a eurofighter!! Wow that is alot!! They said half the budget was going on to themeing and scenery and since Speed at Oakwood only cost £3 million, at that price, i'm sure the theming on Saw will be absolutely spectacular. :D

Could this be the best themed ride in the UK? I think it might be :D

Would that total include the infilling of the lake they have been doing for a while?
Should imagine that would cost a few million, Eurofighters must only be 5-8 million.

Indeed, I'm sure that the landscaping and rights to Saw are going to eat a considerable chunk out of that budget.

In the new video, was that the actual ride? Or was it another Eurofighter they were filming? I didn't know they'd got the cars on the track and started testing them at this early stage?
If it was another Eurofighter they weer filming that would make sense

There's already been a heck of a lot revealed about the storyline from the video which announced the ride name. I don't see what else they could reveal without totally spoiling the ride itself.

That said, take a look around the site, there's plenty of things on it to give you a feel as to what it'll be like.

Got to say I'm loving the site though, plenty to do on there and it does a nice job of building up the hype :D.

They've actually revealed far more in the build up to this than in the build up to previous coasters at thorpe, but then again, the other 3 dont really have much of a story to reveal, so i guess there's more with this one. In the last month, loads has been revealed, so a quiet spell at the moment doesn't bother me
