It’s official – The British theme park season is now well underway! The rides are re-opened, the PR stunts have concluded, and finally millions of visitors will have the chance to have their preliminary rides on new additions such as The Swarm at Thorpe Park, and Nemesis Sub-Terra at Alton Towers.
Thorpe Park have released details of their new roller coaster for 2012, The Swarm. Opening Spring 2012, the ride will feature extensive theming, and will continue Thorpe Park’s aim to cater purely for the thrill market. Riders will ride on the edges of the rollercoaster train, giving the B&M creation the ideal name of being ‘Wingrider’ style. A prototype wingrider opened successfully this year as Raptor at Gardaland, Italy.
