Thorpe Park announce B&M Wing-Rider - LC12

In line with THORPE PARK’s Medium Term Development Plan, application for full planning permission for a new rollercoaster in 2012 has been submitted to Runnymede Borough Council. This can be viewed on the Runnymede Borough Council website, (ref: RU.11/0101).

The German manufacturer Bolliger and Mabillard have been commissioned to build
the unique new rollercoaster due to their consistent record of delivering extreme
rides of the highest quality. Subject to planning permission, the ride will open in
Spring 2012 and will be located on one of the new development islands adjacent to
Stealth, measuring just under 40 metres in height.

Mike Vallis, Divisional Director, comments:

“THORPE PARK has developed significantly over the last decade to create the ‘must
do’ destination for thrill seekers in the UK. We have focussed our investment on
delivering exciting new rides and attractions including SAW – The Ride: the world’s
first horror movie themed rollercoaster, Stealth: one of Europe’s fastest
rollercoasters, Colossus: the world’s first 10 looping rollercoaster and Nemesis
Inferno the 4.5 G-force experience.

This new development for 2012 will further add to the Park’s impressive ride portfolio and firmly establish the THORPE PARK as the nation’s Thrill Capital with a wide range of adrenaline pumping rides.”
