Zodiac

Recommended Posts

Just noticed Zodiac had no topic. I think it's pretty good although it's not one of my favourites. I'll go on it if the que isn't bad. I'd give it a three out of five. Anyone like it, anyone hate it?

What is there to like about? Its the most boring ride in the world. I hate the thing. I also cant see it staying at Thorpe much longer. I dont blame Drayton Manor giving it to Thorpe.

But it is quite thrilling even though it's not great.

[Yep me. I just feel really unsafe on it and get the feeling that the pods gonna come off ]Same here! And when I watch it I also think that so I can't look at it, Also in the que were the pods going upside down and facing you in the que I think there going to fly off and hit me lol.

does the new vortex have any themeing on the wheel because the old one did or is it still silver. also I dont like it because it dont seem to go totally vertical and should stay verticle for longer.

If you are talking about the new one. It came same day as Stealth (opening day)Well the new zodiac isn`t exactly new. Its just new to Thorpe. (A replacement)

The original Zodiac was first at Thorpe in 2000 as 'Enterprise' as a quick replacement from the fire. It was rethemed and named Zodiac for the 2001 season. Was replaced with Cyclone from Drayton Manor and is still known as Zodiac. So there :lol:

Does anyone know if zodiac will get back its theming over the closed season?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

From the looks of things now - no.

I've not been on zodiac because I dont trust it. I think something should replace it.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Well thats what Thorpe thought last year.. so they did replace it, shame it was with another Huss Enterprise though :P Dunno what they'd put there cos the ride area isn't actually that big.

The old one was the dodgy one, and now its gone, never coming back =]Zodiacs just a 'meh' ride really.. Horrible paint job, annoying music, nothing to do with the zodiac symbol stuff (at least the old one did). And if anything its just an accident waiting to happen :P

Nope your right there.. something happened and the support holding up the gondola snapped leaving the gondola that they were in dangling although it was e-stopped and started bashing against the ride platform I think? can't remember the details that well.

Oh the BBC always use crap pics when they have an article on Thorpe! That pic is Swat from Six Flags Astroworld :P Also in the Guiness Book of Records a few years back there is a picture of Colossus, but its not actually Colossus.. its Corkscrew at Cedar Point and they expect no-one to notice ! Random.. anyway Zodiac..
