Paultons Park

Recommended Posts

Much excitement.

 

Any clever types able to work out any of the clues scribbled around, do they give anything away?

 

Fujita is the tornado scale, F5 being the strongest from 261mph. That's it, 261mph Mack Spinner confirmed...

Underneath Fujitsu is 'squall storm', which is a 'sudden increase in wind speed which last minutes' (as opposed to a gust storm which is an increase in wind speed for seconds).

 

Everything else is pretty meaningless without further context. The V=Dr^2h formula could be related to velocity of a tornado I guess. 6a^2 speed could be anything.

 

So yeah, nothing really aside from fast tornadoes. That in itself could still be a hint towards a launched spinner though I guess.

I really like the way Paultons are marketing this, very refreshing to see clues given away in a fun, but not irritating or self-indulgent way.

 

Fingers crossed the park can scale up the marketing successfully when the time's right and get this project in the limelight.

Bar Icon and Wickerman this is probably the most excited I have been for a UK project in ages!

Paulton have marketed this in such a fun and charming way- it really makes me hopeful that the industry over here isn't completely dominated by Merlin and we have some non-merlin investments going around.

 

I'm really interested to see what coaster we get, but as long as its not a second hand pinfari I'm fine.

If its a Mack then I think Paultons will be a must do next year. The area looks very charming nevertheless.

Sunday 31st 5pm has gone, anyone spotted anything?

Based off previous tweets where they've mentioned times, they go off MST (since Tornado Springs is American, etc). 5pm MST is midnight tonight.

 

So if something is going to happen, it may well be then. I'd personally only expect a hint at another ride and name rather than anything full blown though, if that.

Just when I think I couldn't love the way they are going about this more.

Little touches ❤️❤️

I actually looked this up to see if Paultons was actually 30KM from Thorpe. Was disappointing to say the least it was much further, but no surprises I guess.

 

Still a quirky piece of advertising. I can feel the burn more than an over cooked Pizza.

Is this some shade at Thorpe? ?

Doesn't look it, they've been using that phrase on the construction boards as well.

This was tweeted, drop towers confirmed then!

 

 

Another tweet you can zoom in on the text.

Wonder if these said may day events actually happened at the park or if it was all fictional .....

Moved and rethemed magma?

Moved and rethemed the other two junior drip towers they have?

Or new drop towers?

If nee will all the others remain?

 

Paultons like their drop towers!

Hopefully they've relocated their two junior drop towers and Magma get's relocated to their jurassic themed area rather than just situated on its own. Especially as seeing as they have enough drop towers as is ? But guess we'll see!

Exciting! The coaster appears to be a clone of Sierra Sidewinder at Knotts. The area looks set to be a fantastic addition to the park and will certainly be making my first visit there next year.

Fantastic looking addition to the park. And the park did a great job of realising the Lost Kingdom artwork, so I am confident this could be the same.

 

Really looking forward to this developing further!
