  1. The Future of SAW - The Ride

    I was more referring to stealth being so forgettable and over, after a blink of the eye. At least, saw feels a lot longer and it's the only coaster at thorpe that I can say makes me smile at the end of the ride. Nemesis Inferno is good but there's nothing spectacular. Stealth is meh. Colossus just focusses on inversions. THE SWARM lacks any force, whatsoever, except on the drop. Unlike mystery mine, saw isn't just a story based experience with a hint of an actual coaster. Saw mixes both theming and the actual coaster very well.

    I mean I absolutely love Saw, more than Shambhala or Red Force. It is forceful, has a good amount of theming and has a very good layout (maybe slightly too short but long enough AHEM Stealth). The ride has a solid capacity (and it's an awfully clever system in how the coaster operates). Theming wise, I'd expect it not to change but maybe it would be nice to get some of the original concept art appearing in the attraction more.

    It's not love. It's going to ruin an attraction which worked well for the entire family

    I think Thorpe deserves the prize of making a ride which never fit into any area, to fit nothing whatsoever. Literally going to be an apocalypse in a small town themed to the beach area. This whole thing is absolutely stupid. Makes DBGT seem like a good idea.

    It does make you wonder what actually is going on at merlin magic making. After refurbishing a coaster, with a new disco soundtrack and new effects/ theming for the queue, you turn it into an apocalyptic attraction. I guess the IMASCORE soundtrack was at least good for half a season.

    I visited Ferrari Land this summer, in peak august, and the operation for red force was abysmal. Train left every 2.5 mins, which would have made a capacity of around 250 people per hour. However, there were constant breakdowns, including a 10 minute complete stoppage just befo I rode. I can only predict the capacity would have been more like 200 people per hour, and you've got to remember the high amount of fast track users. No wonder, therefore, that the advertised queue of 50 minutes went to over 2.25 hours.

    Ferrari land is still worse. At least, this is going to be a coaster with a higher capacity than red force

    4 years ago at Thorpe, the only major attractions I did were stealth and detonator. Last year, I started to do Inferno and swarm. This year, I was able to do ever coaster and look at me now doing all the major PA coasters alone. At the end of the day, it's possible to ride everything but you just have to be active and make yourself ride.

    The only way you will conquer your fears, is to attack them head on. Just do the coasters and make yourself do them. If anything, it's easier with friends because you get peer pressure to ride. The worst situation is you don't like the ride and don't ever ride it again. Just saying, with your name containing Chessington, Chessington coasters are abysmal and are far less enjoyable than thorpe.

    Just saying. I'm so likely to win most dedicated member as I write so many posts here and they are so detailed, and they never, ever cause any arguments. People never get annoyed or really angry with me for saying Chessington and Bubble works are awful and overrated. I really don't think I'm at at all, being sarcastic whatsoever!
  13. It's certainly a proof of concept, which is the use of multiple technologies and ideas, eventhough it's a mess.

  15. Favourite Coaster Launches

    I've only done Rita, Stealth, Red Force and Furius Baco but really they're all rather boring and lack force except Furius Baco, which has a nice preshow.
