Paint X black, with the blue stripe replaced with a white strip or silvery, and beef it up to me along the lines of Euro Sat, going mental with lasers.

But that kind of re-theme to X:\No Way Out would make it seem even more out-of-place than it already is, wouldn't it? Unless I'm reading this wrong... it's late for me. :mellow:And themeparkmad, it's really not. Everyone knows Slippery Serpent is!

To solve the ugly problem of X, I would create a large fibreglass Aztec pyramid, and plonk it right on top of it, then put amazing theming indoors, with the whole pyramid lit up through fire-effects {torches and the odd flameball, all safely done in a well ventilated area zzzzz}

Or you could be really smart and just blow the whole thing up, then replace it with a Pinfari Looper and waaaay! X:\No Way Out is inches better already. And smiles are all around. :mellow:

I think you have some very good ideas there. I like the idea of a Top Spin in the new SAW area, with a re-themed Top Scan. If you themed the Top Spin similar to Ripsaw at Alton Towers, that would be a very effective ride.

Personally, at one point, I think Thorpe Park could do with an intense water coaster, perhaps one of the newly developed Intamin designs. An AquaTrax ride perhaps?

It's starting again... I don't mean to be too rude but Thorpe really, really don't need a Top-Spin; Chessington and Alton already have one each. This has been mentioned countless times before. And sam 795, I doubt a ride of Nemesis Inferno's size would fit in X:\No Way Out's spot. Although I like the ideas of repainting/refurbishing certain rides, because some really need a little TLC.

thorpe park has already submitted planning permission for a demolision of x and replacement roller coaster roughly the size of nemmy but not as spread out and the arena will be demolished to account for the space-hell gate and seven will be moved untill replaced of stopped-also everyone love a top spin especially with a horror theme imagine it at fright night or they could move one from alton of chessie

It's on the MTDP, which is a rough guideline of what Thorpe plan to do in the near future, it is by no means reliable or precise - look at Air's layout being used for SAW. The LTDP says that a coaster is to replace X:\No Way Out in 2016/2018, but what it does not say is the scale comparison of the coaster (which you claim to be Nemesis Inferno) I could be wrong, but there is no evidence of the coaster size as of yet. If you look at the bottom of the 2003-2009 MTDP, you can see that it was SAW that was to be 'a coaster of the non-looping variety and of a similar scale to Nemesis Inferno'I'm not against you, sam 795, but none of us know what is to be done with X:\No Way Out yet, all I'm saying is that a coaster of a similar scale to Nemesis Inferno would not fit in X:\No Way Out's spot. :P

I could be lying but I'm sure the guideline "coaster on the scale of Nemesis Inferno" was given for the 2008 coaster only, which then got pushed back to 2009.

Here's what I'd do, most of this probably won't happen but no harm in dreaming.2010- Remove Time Voyagers and replace it with a Posidon's fury style show like the one at Islands of adventure. Hire more staff to make WWTP Radio live and stream through out the park. It will anounce if there are breakdowns play a larger variety of music and also have shows where the public can get involved.2011- Remove Ranger county and give it to Chessington. Build a new themed pirate area in it's place, with a swinging pirate ship, the return of Pirates 4-d, a pirate style arcade and a new fish and chip shop2012- Remove X-no way out and replace it with an interactive lazer ride like Toomb Blaster. Build a new railway at the park entrance that allows guests to travel round and get off at the various diffrent lands, save the walking. :)2013- Install an indoor swimming pool where the beach was. Make Depth Charge an indoor atraction with only part of it going outside. Remove Tidal Wave from Amity Cove and put it oppositte the main pool2014- Add more intense affects to Inferno such as a fire chamber and hot floor. Add preshow showing guests what it was like to experience a volcano2015- Remove the KFC and replace it with an all you can eat american style eatery. There would be ribbs, chicken wings and other spicy foods. General work around the park including a retheme of Posidon ading more scary affects, add some kids rides to the Atlantis Dome, like Skyline at Butlins, add some new pirate style music to the boat in the pirate area and general safety checks on other rides2016- Add a Backstage tour during closed season like the behind the loop tour, where each weekend Thorpe take some guests behind the sceens of there rides and the guests get to ask questions. No new rides this year2017- This year the park will be open for christmas, with a new Santa's grotto next to the lazer style ride in the Lost city. Retheme the railways so that there are pictures of trees, angels and santa clause round the stations. Also make the Park entrance play christmasy music.2018- Retheme the Santa's grotto in to a new shop with direct access to the lazer style ride. Add a new dolphin experience simulator to Amity cove, where you experience what it is like to be a dolphin. Remove Loggers Leap and Rumba Rapids. Make Rumba a lazy river in the pool section and add a new slide in place of loggers.2019- Extend the park''s opening hours until midnight. Add a new Entertainment area outside Atlantis featuring pubs bars and shows for the kids. Also add a new comedy club, and make WWtp play live in that area2020- Add an imax to the entertainment area with a choice of 3 or 4 diffrent shows. Give WWTP a frequency so it can be listened too outside the park.I could go on forever, but think I'll stop for now

Would you not add some sort of new coaster?And also wouldnt there be more extreme flat rides added instead of kiddy rides since chessington is just 30 mins up the road.

As for coasters, I probably would, just couldn't think of a coaster idea worth posting about. Flat rides are kind of covered, you've got Rush, Vortex, Quantum and a host of others tooMy original idea is to try and make the park apeal to everyone and with the addition of a lazer style ride and a posidon style atraction, I think I've done it.There is so much Thorpe could do with Inferno

I know this is everyone's views, but I could not stand a pirate themed area! Chessington and AT have one, so why not go for something a bit different; unique.
