    Theme Park Fan: The Musical

    Stealth

    Ahhh, this old chestnut. The story is quite simple, but a sort of Chinese-whispers effect has led to some confusion over the years. That image is from the MTDP from around 2003. The MTDPs only show loose ideas that the park have at the time. That drawing, for example, shows the top hat being the other side of the Stealth area. The layouts mean nothing; they're just there as a rough indication of size.

    Yes and no I guess. The Stealth incarnation of 'a launch coaster at Thorpe' had been in the works since around late 2002, to my knowledge. Maybe earlier even, depending on the sort of relationship that was had with Intamin at the time and the confidence that was had in Xcelerator (which opened in summer 2002). The Hulk style coaster from Premier was the first time Thorpe had plans for a launch coaster. And that idea probably stretches all the way back to the late 90s shortly after Tussauds took over and planned to turn it into a thrill park. Plans were submitted and I t

  5. Hi Everyone, For those of you who don't know the incredibly talented Nick Hutson has been working on developing his renowned track, Theme Park Fan, into a full blown musical! The musical has been created with contributions from notable UK enthusiasts, including myself. John Wardley is also involved 😉 We are also raising money for the charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably), you can donate here if you wish. Finally, we have teamed up with AromaPrime Scents to create an original scent that compliments the show. It'll be premiering on Satu

    2021 Trip Plans

    For me it's pretty ambitious, and not confident I will get all done but will try... UK Merlin Parks BPB Paultons Park Phantasialand, Toverland, Efteling and Walibi Holland as part of a road trip Energylandia Europa Park. I'd also like to do a trip to New York in August to combine visiting Luna Park and Six Flags Great adventure & New England. Flights currently going for £375! Although many have advised I don't book as they think the whole year is goong to be disastrous for USA. I do think that USA will be one of the last places to improve
