The Swarm rollercoaster in Surrey is set to receive a minor change for 2013.
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's upcoming 2012 addition The Swarm has been confirmed of being ahead of schedule in terms of construction, with the track now being fully completed.
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.
