New Thorpe Park Coaster in 2012

February 14, 2011

Bolliger and Mabillard have made many ingenious coasters over the years, their newest type of ride is a coaster that seems very similar to a 4th Dimension coaster see X2. The first ride of this type was called Raptorand is at Gardaland in Italy, although the seats don’t flip, there are rumors that B and M are testing real world data before they make a full 4D coaster. Who knows, this could possibly be a B and M flipper.

The theming will be a plane crash site with wreckage and a plane. It looks like it will have a straight section of track through some plane parts (possibly a hidden element in there) and will travel up a lift hill to the top then flip upside down around a half loop into a Zero-G-Roll. Then around through an Inclined Loop (previously seen on stand up coasters only). Through a turn around a corkscrew and onto the brakes.

It looks really short but its a possible first of a kind ride. For more information visit Theme Park Tourist’s article on the coaster.

What do you think? Please comment. Thanks for reading.
