Hi THORPE PARK Mania fans.
We hope you're all excited about the arrival of THE SWARM. We're having great fun building up to its launch and we hope you are too!
We wanted to write a little message to you all following the news that Six Flags Great America will also be launching a winged rollercoaster next year very similar to THE SWARM. Some of you may have noticed that when we say it's going to be very similar, it really is going to be VERY similar. When we set about designing and developing our winged coaster we had to make sure it had the THORPE PARK stamp on it. One of the ways we achieved this was by developing the unique inverted dive at the start of the ride that will be sure to kick-off your awesome apocalyptic flight in adrenaline-fuelled style! As you can imagine then, we were quite surprised to see that the new ride at Six Flags will also adopt the 'THORPE PARK Inversion'!
While we could be bitter about this, we would actually like to wish Six Flags Great America the best of luck with the 'THORPE PARK Inversion' and we hope that this is a start of things to come, that one day the 'THORPE PARK Inversion' will become famous in the rollercoaster world! We aim high!
Thanks again for all your support and we'll see you all at Fright Nights.
The THORPE PARK Team
Ridiculous. Utterly absurd. I can't believe a park would go and diss on another park from another country over a design like that. Shouldn't Thorpe be mad at B&M, if anybody? I don't think Thorpe has the right to be mad at all. Thoughts?
