Slammer

Recommended Posts

If you go to “The Past” section of the forums there is a thread about Slammer - your post might be moved there.  Can’t see Slammer coming back as it’s been sat doing nothing for over a year ?

I want to see a KMG Inversion 24 replacing the ride. Not a Speed 32, an Inversion.

I also want a Matterhorn replacing Zodiac.

And a new ride replacing Vortex.

I want a million pounds but that's not gonna happen either ;)

Maybe a new version of the sky swat perhaps, by maybe a different manufacturer

I think you'd struggle to get anyone to consider making you one of those with the two that have existed being the maintenance disasters they were.

well I don’t know what’s the main problem with the sky swat? Was it the restraints? The rotor which rotates riders? Or was it the lift that lifts the ride?

I believe this is the problem with the Slammer. Read my signature line 2.

It was the stain the arms went under, the power of the motors, the bearings, the fact it was air powered, the fact its buckled, the fact weight distribution is a problem, the fact it was a money hole to keep running,

 

it simply wasnt viable to keep running

Kind of a crazy piece of engineering that it was pneumatic, amazing but didn't work long term.

Pretty cool that we got two quite prototypey flat rides at the park in one year, which you really don't see most anywhere else. Rush was always the much better sensation and location though.
