Report The fate of Swinging Seashells in The Past Posted January 25 Hi,as some of you may remember up until 2010 Thorpe Park had an area called Octopus Gardens. Featured in Octopus Gardens was a mini Ferris Wheel called Swinging Seashells. Upon the resection of Octopus Gardens Swinging Seashells was relocated to Weymouth Sea Life Centre. During 2016 Weymouth Sea Life Centre removed all their rides. Ironically 2 were relocated to Thorpe Park as Timber Tug Boat and Lumber Jump. Timber Tug Boat was removed in 2021 in preparation for Project Exodus (Hyperia). Lumber Jump was relocated and rethemed at Thorpe Park as High Striker. High Striker is located more or less where Swinging Seashells was. Swinging Seashells is the only Weymouth Sea Life Centre ride with an unknown location. Some speculate Swinging Seashells is in storage at Thorpe Park. If this speculation is true I think Swinging Seashells should be brought out of storage and relocated to the area formerly occupied by the Wet Wet Wet Waterslides. Due to Swining Seashells having a beach based theme it would fit seemlesley into Amity Beach. Can someone please confirm the current status of Swinging Seashells and if/where it is now operating? If in storage at Thorpe Park does anyone else think Swinging Seashells should be reopened.
