  1. They do have a new mini wing style coaster called the Big Dipper train. Would definitely be more family friendly.
  2. I don't believe its actually confirmed to be a B&M just yet? We are only going on the station layout and the track design that on the plans which does looks a little B&M like. Personally I think this will be a Mack, as we know Merlin like multi ride manufacturer deals and with Thorpe potentially seeing a Mack in 2024, this makes more sense to me. It would be the first B&M shuttle coaster and would need to be some kind of new family wing design to accommodate the smaller/shorter guest. So I really don't think it makes sense for this to be a B&M.
  3. I've finally worked it out! This isn't a riddle! This person is using google translate to post on the forum from Cantonese into English. 🤣
  4. Oh God, please tell me its not being called Big Ben. 😅
  5. I mentioned a few weeks back a Time Traveller / Ride to Happiness style ride would work so well at Thorpe. I’m trying to figure out if the height of this ride would be too intense for a next gen Mac Spinner. But the track elements would work, and there are hints at a Time Machine theme, maybe with a Western/Steam Punk area. I’m just speculating.
  6. Ok, definitely not a dive machine 🤣 I like the look of this. Yes it’s a little short, but this thing is going to carry some serious speed. Let’s pray for lap bars, as that first drop looks insane, as does that last airtime hill!
  7. I didn’t realise there was a detailed layout already! Excited to see it. I was just speculating. A coaster that high with such a short layout as described by those that attended the consultation, is rather unusual to say they least. I haven’t seen it myself.
  8. Very Tall, Compact Layout, Splashdown……sounds like a B&M Dive Machine to me.
  9. I’m not great with riddles, but you are referring to a big clock, possibly Big Ben? What does this have to do with this new ride? Time Traveller is a Mack Spinning coaster, which are becoming popular. Ride to Happiness is the launched version at Plopsiland. I’ve heard it’s incredible. Would be a good fit for Thorpe, bridging the thrill/family ride gap.
  10. Winds in the East? I'm on the B&M hype train with this one. Makes sense given Chessie have got a B&M Wing incoming, and we know Merlin often does a multi purchase deal with coaster manufacturers. Just to highlight, 'Monsoon' is a wind in the east. Oriental theme? Sorry too soon 🤣
  11. sorry if anyone has posted anything interesting on the last few pages, as I have had to swipe past pretty much all of the uninteresting posts of certain people moaning. Has as anyone seen any unofficial reviews from the staff yet? That BBC documentary has got me hyped at the amount of detail and time they appear to have taken on the story line and special effects!
  12. They must be fairly confident about it being ready in a couple of weeks if they have released this advert. Signs in the park are one thing, but a full advertising campaign is a pretty good certainty.
  13. What is going to be strange is that we will be in a group wearing these VR headsets, but effectively seem like we are on our own. If we are sat on a train with other people, you won't be able to interact with them or see them with the VR headset on!
  14. The train outside on rails looks like themeing to me. I don't think it will move. Its going to look fantastic though! It certainly looks and feels like a railway station. Right I am now off to have a lie down. That video has given me motion sickness. (Only joking thanks for the effort lads)
