I am still not too sure about that as it usually has an annual September downtime, and just narrowly being reopened in time for Fright Night.

It's nev a good sign when a ride has annual downtime. Even worse when there's an off season to go with it.

Yeah, but if Thorpe Park was open all year round, Slammer would never cope without it's regular off season maintenance, but still it is very bad for a ride like this, but it was a failed design.

Yes. If it was built well, this would be a very good ride.

S&S. Pretty much all of their rides are good and fun but the way Slammer was built wasn't a good design at all. If it had something conventional powering it, instead of pressurized air, it would be a really fun ride.

Slammer is back in operation!
Congratulations to Merlin and Thorpe Park for actually getting it back up in time for Fright Night!

I hope Slammer stays at Thorpe, there isn't many S&S Sky Swats left in existence.
