I thought it was joint steepest, until Mumbo Jumbo opens anyway :)

I'll post details when I get back either tomorrow night, or Friday, if people would like a detailed review?

Let me guess, the first 0 is missing and the last 4 digits are wrong?

Same with everyones, I'm sure it will be fine!

Mumbo Jumbo has a brake fin like the ones on the stealth air time hill. This means its going at a controled speed and is not a freefall drop. Saw has no fins meaning its all down to gravity make it the worlds steepest freefall drop. Other eurofights have a 98dregree drop Saw has a 100 dregree drop

Look at 0:41. The theming doesn't look anything special. The queueline itself better be good otherwise it'll be another thorpe failure.

Oblivion at 87.5 degrees is surely steeper.

Although I think we've had this debate before!

How the hell can you tell from a badly lit shot of an offload station?

From what I can tell, the queue theming IS what is going to make this ride. The concepts and other information surrounding the ride suggest that the queue is going to be themed up there with the best of them in Europe. The station I am sure is well themed, it needs to be dark and dim - so detail obviously cannot be made out on the video in question.

The ride will not be a failure, it should be Thorpe's best ride - it's a cross between Rage, Speed and Mystery Mine in one - which can't really be a bad thing!

There would seem to be an embargo on the press showing shots of the interior theming in any great detail so i dont think you can make a judgement till you see it all. It must be worth the effort of keeping it hidden until the big day

To be honest, some of the content of the queueline has imagery that refers to drugs etc. (needles etc.) - from what I am aware, so frankly many of the images wouldn't be suitable for a daytime audience necessarily.

Your right. One of the effects for instance is a heavily bleeding body...

When will it be dark and dim though? Fright Nights? I hope it's good. I want it to be good. Sorry for making a judgement off a background but it doesnt look great. A bit later on in the film, the general director is interviewed and there is a giant picture of Billy the puppet. I mean I hope that's a one off.

Yeah, I would love one. Shame they didn't show the dark-ride section on the video though. :)

Just out of interest, how much was spent on the theming of the ride?

May have already been said, but I can't find it.
