It looks like we will defiantly be getting a new ride for next year at Thorpe Park!

Taken from Thorpe Parks' Facebook Page.

Is there going to be a new attraction next year or are you sticking with the same old? Which are brilliant but some are dated and need to be brought back to life a bit-presentation wise and mechanically (lots of down time :( ) please help me understand this as I know many Thorpe Park fans wanting to know the answer to the same question :) Thanks :) xxxx

Keep your expectations low. They just built Swarm this year, so I expect a much smaller investment for their new attraction next year.

My personal expectation is always low with Thorpe after a coaster has been built.

Now I defiantly think Thorpe Park will be getting a new ride of some description.

I like the idea of some surprises.
