THORPE PARK – DEVELOPING THE THRILLS
In line with the Thorpe Park’s Medium Term Development Plan, application for full planning permission for a new rollercoaster in 2009 has been submitted to the Runnymede Borough Council. This can be viewed on the Runnymede Borough Council website, www.runnymede.gov.uk (ref: RU.07/1230).
The German manufacturer Gerstlauer have been commissioned to build one of their trademark Euro-Fighter roller coasters which, subject to planning permission, will open in Spring 2009. Based in the Canada Creek area of the Park, the new coaster will comprise of Gerstlauer’s unique and innovative ‘beyond vertical’ drop from a breathtaking 100ft before travelling through a number of different thrill elements customised for Thorpe Park.
Peter Ronchetti, General Manager, comments:
“Thorpe Park has developed significantly over the last decade to create one of the UK’s most popular attractions for thrill-hunters. We have invested over £35 million since 1998 in exciting new rides and attractions including Stealth – Europe’s fastest rollercoaster, Colossus – the world’s first 10 looping rollercoaster and Nemesis Inferno the 4.5 G-force experience.
This new development for 2009 will further add to the park’s impressive ride portfolio and firmly establish Thorpe Park as the UK’s most thrilling attraction with a wide range of adrenalin pumping rides.”
