First (good) picture of Swarm's Track!

Postby bulby1994 » Thu Oct 13, 2011 12:38 pm

After ages of waiting, Swarm has finally started assembly in Thope Park! The peice if track seen in the picture seems to be part of final brake-run and the block/transfer-track outside the station.

Swarm is a B&M wingrider coaster where the seats are beside the track. It is the only "big thrill" coaster due open in the UK next year.

If you want to keep updated on Swarm's construction, be sure to check CoasterForce's construction blog of the ride! http://www.coasterforce.com/world-park- ... ction-lc12

Finally! :)

So far theres been loads of unclear, grainy photos but now theres that. :)
It'll be interesting to hear how that photo was taken as the track and station is quite far away from public access. Unless this is quite near Stealth's queue.(which it does look like it is.

Construction is coming along fast.
I wonder if they will have to close the fish early for construction of the first loop (Thorpe Park Loop as it is known as)
Anyway can't wait to ride it next year!

Unlikely They'll close fish, it'll get close to it but I don't think they'll shut it.

I can hardly wait to ride as well. :D
