Saw: The Ride (Thorpe Park)

Postby Simba » Tue Jul 10, 2012 5:38 pm

Saw: The Ride is a custom Euro-Fighter roller coaster in the Thorpe Park theme park in the United Kingdom. It is themed around the Saw horror film franchise. Thorpe park quotes the ride as the worlds most terrifying coaster, mainly because Saw - the ride is the first and only horror movie themed roller-coaster in the world.

What is your opinions on Saw: The Ride.

The indoor section is very very good but the outside fails to live up to this. Many of the transitions are too sharp for my liking.

I believe the contract with Lionsgate has been terminated early by Merlin.
So that probabley also explains why Saw Alive has been reduced to Fright Nights. Could this mean getting a Saw retheme like with Chessington's Benoland and new name.

Everytime you mention that contract running out I keep thinking, How are they going to re-theme it?

The Indoor section is clearly designed for this theme.

Well all they really need to do is remove all the saw specific theming.

It's a bit stupid that Lionsgate may be taking away all of the Saw stuff at Thorpe Park, its basically free advertising. And seriously, when was the last time anyone actually cared about Beano and Dandy since Beanoland got re-themed at Chessington?

Eh it is not Lionsgate that have terminated the contract, Merlin terminated it, so legally Merlin/Thorpe will need to do it as they don't hold the rights to the Saw franchise.

We don't know if Beano is still popular. The popularity could have nothing to do with Beanoland gone. Plus, they both look pretty awful now anyway.

I think Saw The Ride if it does get re-themed can easily receive some "Ministry Of Joy" treatment, and become another establishment of them, as it does have that sort of feel to it and the station building of The Smiler is pretty similar to Saw The Rides building theme.
