There's a no limits creation of what the new inverted coaster at Thorpe Park might look like.

Theres a run of track between the station exit and the lift hill which will make the coaster really cool. It looks really great, and if the coaster is anything like this it will be wicked!!! It is supposed to be heavily themed with a volcamo setting.

Yeah, if the jaunt from the station to the lift is for real, that will be really hip.

I wonder what sources they are using for this, though. Remember there were creations of B:DK based on blueprints a while back that were pretty off in a lot of ways.

If the shoe fits, find another one.

The recreation of Batman:Dark Knight only had one major error which was that they mistook a dive loop for an immelman. The blueprints ended up being exact as well. Only time can tell exactly what it will be like, but is supposed to be along the lines of Nemesis in terms of theming.

The the layout seem kind of boring to you guys? It's like a simplified version of Batman:The Ride. Of course, I bet Nemesis wouldn't look to appealing as a parking lot coaster. So I'll wait till we see all the theming that they have planned for this.

Let me say this Layout is Still not Offically Confirmed,those Pictures are following an early Ride Layout Leaked onto the Internet about 2 months ago. Although the Final Layout will be pretty similar to those pics, there might be a few changes here and there. The Inversions are correct though in that it will have a Vertical Loop,Inline and 2 interlocking corkscrews(A First for an Inverted)
Also, I'm sure the themeing on this ride will be very good, Its strongly rumoured it will be themed around a volcano, so if Thorpe can do a good job like they did on Colossus, we wont be disapointed.

That looks like a whole lot of wasted track before the lift if you ask me.

I went to Sandusky, but there was no Callahan factory

Yeah, what is the point of that track?

Maybe it will turn out to be something cool, like in a tunnel or extensively themed.
And all the sea around Kraken darkened.
SFEG awaits The Flying Coaster-coming in 2002!

Is there any place to download the track or is it just for looking at? I bet if the pre-lift track is really like that, it will be setting up some kind of pre ride storyline like you have to make it out of a volcano.

OK, More Rumours I heard today about that long piece of track before the lift sound interesting. It has now been rumoured that long piece of track before the lift will be heavily themed, apparently you will come out of the station, and go through a part of a Volcano, you will then go through scenes with Lava all around you to add to the Volcano theme, it is also said you will go through a spinning tunnel which should be fun.

I cant guarantee this rumour is True, so dont get your hopes up, It should be a good ride though, all be revealed in less than 1 year(11 months Till Opening Day) :)

Well, seeing what this chain did with Nemesis'es theming, this one should be even better. From rivers of blood to oceans of lava ;)
