So lately it seems that half the park is a construction site. Recently we learned that Thorpe Park will be receiving a second major roller coaster in the space of two years. Opening in 2003, Project Calypso will be a B&M Inverted coaster. The ride will feature a near hundred foot drop, four inversions and a figure of eight helix to end. Going by the model pictured to the left, expect a tropical volcano theme, making Sleepy Joe’s Rib Shack all of a sudden fit in! Construction has started, so stay tuned for updates.
