Well, astonishing the wing does the job, for example if a minion themed ride (Dispicable Me) was mass marketed, it would pull in millions of families.


Universal Studios have a Minions ride which is a great success :)

I guess the Top Gear ride idea may have been moved to a back burner for now.

Wait, there was a top gear ride? :sus:

Yeah, for now I'd say it would be made into something else, due to recent stuff regarding Jeremy

I would love to see a really awesome rapids ride. The UK lacks a really awesome water ride. I of course would love some world class coasters, but i really hope PP go for a big range of rides and attractions. I also hope they will hold an incredible Halloween event too with some brilliant horror attractions too.

This was one of the concept images released: http://www.londonparamount.info/media/1 ... e_isle.png
I know it is only concept art but it does appear a highly themed rapids ride is at least in consideration.

I don't think London Paramount will be doing many roller coasters, focusing more on stuff where the IP rights can be really shown off such as dark rides, motion simulators etc.

I know concept art isn't necessarily the best indicator of what's to come, but in the new Kent Online article I saw a new piece of concept art showing a white rollercoaster coming out of a building. The track looked very similar to Vekoma's models.

If anyone wants to see the article: http://www.kentonline.co.uk/kent-busine ... ts-115049/

That isn't a new picture unfortunately.

I think they need to put in one or two rides that Merlin have never been able to.

Large B&M floorless, or Intamin Hyper etc. Would really get them on the map straight away.

Wasn't it released that they weren't going above 140ft? or was that just speculation? and yes, I'd also love both of them rides, along with a Mack Mega coaster and an Intamin woodie with a good mixture of water and dark rides in between.

Here's a summary of a Times article with senior management for the project, posted on the TS forums. 

First actual update that isn't some PR exercise and info about ride hardware rather than vague concept art.

I cannot wait! Coaster wise, I am thinking woodie (from original plans), launch coaster (Star Trek themed now Paramount is on board), family coaster (why not) and I don't know about the 4th.

I would assume the park wants to knock the opening out the park with its offerings of rides..

So I agree with a woodie agree with a launched coaster themed to Star Trek. I'd say a family coaster would be something like a new vekoma style, or new intamin. And the 4th.. would hopefully be a B&M Hyper coaster.. the chances we'd get an RMC is quite slim I'd of thought.. but it would be a nice surprise.
