Murf murf murf murf murf. I could barely understand what the guys were saying in the video.

 

I thought that the dive drop would be taken a lot more quickly in the back seat, but it looks like it still gives some great hang time.

Not much change but I found this picture of the new entrance of X. I hope they're going to change the hight restriction and information board as well.

As we can see the ride is still closed so we don't know if the rumors of the trains going forward or re-theme are true.

Old entrance:

Are you ready to ride on a wave of light and sound as you experience the evolution of X:\ No Way Out?

 

X has been renamed and is heading in a new direction in 2013 as it challenges adrenaline seekers to face a rollercoaster experience like no other at THORPE PARK. Thrill your senses with a race through light and sound that will plunge you into a mix of intense colour and music.

 

Redesigned and reprogrammed around light and sound, the X trains will now speed forwards into tunnels of changing coloured light. And with a new coaster experience, new fans can enjoy the ride when, for the first time, thrill seekers in the making will be able to face the challenge of X.

Confirmation of X going forward. It seems some re-theming was done in the winter. I wonder to reviews now, They where already not happy with the ride.

The new TV Add of the Swarm. I think its a upgrade on the last one shows a lot more of the ride but the backwards part kinda sucks.

^I think we have slightly higher standards on the TPR Trips!

 

Yeah, those pods look like you're sleeping in a lunch box.

This has been a bad call in my opinion, but we'll have to see how popular they are.

 

 

Cant see it they take up hardly any space at the side of the park and are perfect for the kind of crowd they are aimed at for Merlin its a win win.

The coaster has been pushed back to 2016, but I do believe that they are allready planning it.

 

Knowing the audience of the park it is probably something like this they are planning, only with more loops.

I really loved Abismo in the summer of 2012, but i really hope Thorpe Park goes for yet again a B&M coaster. This type of attractions have really no capacity at all...

Heres the inside of the yolo pods you can stay in

Are they pre-covered in semen or do you have to supply your own?

 

I was the interior decorator. Already covered.

Remember that Skyloops like Abismo can be built with more than one train operating. You can also get the X-train on it, doubling the capacity. (first X-train is opening at Romon World China in 2014).

 

Anyway, it was just an example.

 

Don't hold your breath on another B&M though, apparently The Swarm have not been as well received as the other coasters as Thorpe, and usual comments are "slow" and "not so intense".

^I'm not sure how far that is B&M's fault, I mean, they build what the park asks for. I'm still sure that if a someone wanted a fast paced and intense B&M they would be able to deliver one. The problem is that, sadly, many parks would rather go for less intense, more family-friendly rides to appeal to a wider range of people. I don't think B&M have lost the ability to build intense rides.

whats missing from thorpe imho is an airtime filled coaster, a B&M hypercoaster like shambala or behemoth, although i doubt the budget will stretch for something like that...

 

but now its lost the record for most inversions, tallest coaster in the uk could a a viable goal

As you say, the park got what they asked for, there is nothing wrong with it.

Also remember it's only rumours, said to be from managers at the park.

Merlin has an insane amout of money, if they want something and see a market for it they will build it.

However you will never see a B&M hyper at Thrope I can almost promise you, it would not fit the audience at all.

There Facebook page and youtube would be filled with snorky comments on how lame it was.
