It "looks" slow, but dont forget, that was probably the very first run with people and first runs with people are always slow

 

Coasters can tell the difference between water dummies and people?

 

Only B&Ms can! They are magic don't you know!

 

On a real note I doubt the ride will get too much faster. The most they can do is change the wheel compounds or my preferred method of speeding stuff up using excessive amount of lubricant.

^ Ride speeds vary quite abit.

 

If you've ever seen Nemesis do it's test run on a cold morning unloaded. It CRAWLS round!

 

Talking to a techie it turns out the difference in speeds between a hot and cold day is surprisingly a lot. Also if the ride's been operating for a long time, the friction heats everything up and gets all the lube loose.

 

EVERYTIME a new B&M gets testing..everyone says it's slow. I've been around coaster forums since I was 14 and I've seen the same comments every year. I think you should give a little leeway for the fact that 1.it's COLD atm (stupid winter) 2. it's new and 3.it's unloaded. Also wing riders have to have slow rotation through all it's banking to stop lats in the outer seats so it kind of gives an illusion of slowness.

I kinda really hate that map. It's too messy, therefore losing it's basic function of a map.

 

The thing with Thorpe Park thought is its quite possibly the easiest park in the world to navigate. You just look at what ride you want to go to and head in that direction. The map is just for show and a bit of generalization to say what shops, food outlets etc are by certian rides. And then all the info for shows and event on the back. I wouldn't class it as map, more like a guide.

Sorry about that. I looked at the post dates, and I thought the map had been posted after that date I thought it had been posted on the Thorpe Park website on the 25th. That's why I didn't look. Really sorry...
