Thorpe Park - 27/5/12

So my second visit to Thorpe Park was brilliant, I managed to get on all of the key rides quite quickly upon arriving at the park at 12:00. The only real downside was the extreme heat, however the swarm did cool me down!

Well I have been extremely unlucky with Thorpe and breakdowns this year, The Swarm even broke down when I was on it granted it was my third go on the coaster I didn't really mind, especailly as we got an extended ride by 20 minuets! While we were stuck I over heard a ride opperator saying "Yesterday (Saturday 26/5/12) their were three breakdowns at the same time (Have a guess at what the three rides were)"
Other rides which experienced breakdowns were; Nemesis which decided to breakdown 15 minuets before The Swarm did so as you can imaging caused the other rides experienced longer queues and the other notable breakdown was Flying Fish x2 and Samurai.

On a Swarm note: The fire effect was not running, and the on-ride DVD cameras are going to be active mid June.

Pictures (Will be added latter)

Yep in two days.
Just to clarify Flying Fish x2 means it broke down twice and on the second time, I was actually on it so, I experienced two on-ride breakdowns.
Clue to the guess which ones they were: All three rides are water rides.

Tidal, Rapids and Loggers? Or does Storm Surge and/or Depth Charge get in on the fun?
