You know S&S made a new coaster prototype called axis. It’s very low to the ground and very compact in design. Now where’s one place I know that has both these factors in coaster building hmmmmm.


And that’s means it could be a suspended and non suspended coaster!

Hmm, I'm a little unsure on this image. Whilst we could be seeing an application soon if SW9 is to open in 2021 (which follows the gaps between Thirteen, Smiler and Wicker), this could just be a tease. I remember at some point in 2014 seeing a similiar tweet from Towers themselves- well over a year before anything of SW8 surfaced. But here's hoping that this tease has meaning!

Never too early to discuss. An Intumin Blitz and RMC hybrid hyper are all missing in the UK. The competition in Europe is far better than UK with Taron, Wild Fire, Shambala, Zadra, etc. Rita is perhaps holds the record for the shortest launch roller coaster ever at 25 seconds and not worth a 15 min queue.

A coaster like Taron would be amazing for AT, perhaps with a better first section. Of course, RMC would be difficult for AT and best suited for Thorpe, especially considering Wicker Man in the park.

I think with the survey stuff as well (See Future Of Rita thread), I think the start of the secret weapon process could be coming sooner than expected.

Well, assuming SW9 is scheduled for 2022, we could potentially see a planning application go in some time next year...

Hopefully yeah. If Rita is set to go, we'll get some kind of announcement, either saying it's closed for the foreseeable future and dosen't operate at all in 2020 or it'll close towards the end of the summer to prepare the site over Scarefest 2020 and Christmas 2020. This would mean we could see construction in 2021 and beginning of 2022, similar to the Wicker Man process between 2016 and 2018.

I highly doubt Rita is going anywhere anytime soon.

Though many coaster enthusiasts hate the ride, the general public love it. Just the thought of them being launched "really fast" from 0 is still a very gimmicky experience, even though there are many other coasters that do it better. Plus, Rita is still too reliable to close down, it's only turning 15 this year...

As of where I don’t know yet, but I would love to see a Premier Rides multiple launch steel coaster (or potentially a Mack Multi-launch or an Intamin Blitz). But the sort of Möbius Loop Roller Coaster, similar to the new West Coast Racers at Six Flags Magic Mountain. It would fit perfectly in a low down environment, one restricted by tree height, and the fact it being a dueling coaster, but you get to ride both sides as it is essentially just 1 piece of track which means a longer ride time.
