Looking at Thorpe Park on Google Maps really shows how much free space they have.
- The Saw: Alive building is not being used, meaning that the queue line and that whole path is not being used (apart from an unnecessary "short cut" between Lost City and Saw). The Bouncezilla site is also an area nearby that could be used for an attraction. It'd be nice to see a family style coaster with an entrance at the Bouncezilla site and the coaster stretching out next to the water up to the Saw area and back. I really don't think that path is necessary without Saw: Alive and with the parallel path going through the Colossus site. The Saw: Alive path would also be a nice area for a tall flat or a vertical coaster like a Sky Rocket II or a 4D free spin.
- Slammer replacement. An obvious area for another flat. It'd have to be quite a bit smaller if the queue is being used for Black Mirror though.
- The new land behind The Swarm for a new large coaster and area, connected by a path from The Swarm island and a path adjacent to or replacing the sunken gardens.
- Loggers Leap area - of course it would be nice to have a coaster passing through the woods. I am not sure how many trees the council would allow Thorpe Park to remove for a coaster round here, and how easy it would be for the foundations of the coaster passing over the lake. However, not using this land seems a waste.
- The patch of grass next to Thorpe Shark Hotel - more "hotel" rooms? An area used for more entertainment for guests staying the night? I've heard it can be pretty boring after the park closes and the park needs more activities for people staying over and this area is free and in the right location.
I feel like Thorpe Park has so much more potential. Merlin liked to have unique attractions, but don't have the budget of Disney or Universal to pull it off as well. The park needs to invest in a few attractions they know is a safe bet, to avoid unreliability. This would save them money in the long run and allow for faster development. Thorpe Park haven't had a big investment in a permanent attraction since Derren Brown's Ghost Train. We need SOMETHING thrilling that is shown to work at drawing in the crowds at other parks.
