Hmmm, could we have had our first tease for 2020?
Thorpe's 2018 end of season video surfaced on Twitter a couple of days ago and one shot in particular caught my eye:
Towards the end of the video (1:00 exactly) a random shot of a field is placed. Why place this in a video celebrating the 'best season yet' when there are many other things you could include from this packed year? Some believe this to be either Logger's Leap or the land behind the Swarm. I took to google maps in search for the location of this shot, here is how I narrowed the location down:
- Thanks to the camera flipping up in the next shot I was able to identify a lake with two islands in it - St Ann's Lake South-West of Thorpe Park. Out of the two locations Swarm Island is closer.
- Not only this but the ground towards the bottom right of the clip is much browner than green like the grass and greenery near logger's leap
- The shape of the land is very pointy so I looked for pointy outcrops of land around the island, and loggers leap just to be sure
After a little bit of searching I believe the location that this was filmed was on the Island behind The Swarm but on a little outcrop adjacent to Stealth. The exact coordinates from Google Maps are: 51.405236, -0.516806.
This would make sense as the drone operator could stand near Stealth or Sunken Garden which is a very short distance from the location.
This is either poor editing or a little tease for things to come. I hope it's the latter.
