That's just sad honestly.
Ok but how desperate you have to be to voluntarily fly from another country to go to Thorpe?

Here are some more images of the supports that have recently gone in:

EDIT: We now have a fantastic image of the supports from inside the park:

I think this confirms that this will be an Intamin roller coaster. Could be something like Taron, but with motorbike style trains.

They have quite a big place to build something. It would be cool if it became something like Taron. :)

Lol talk about deep footers. I wonder if this one is going to get some pretty landscaping.

This looks quite interesting! Especially with those larger supports coming in.

Yeah, possibly a man made water feature? They all look to be of top level which might suggest water or perhaps a themeing piece I guess.

I really like how they used the dual station to connect the single track. Those little creative details, man.

Here's a look also at the ride parts still in the backstage area of the park. I can also see what looks like to be some tree's which will go in around the ride area:

I am still looking forward to this final product. That video's speculations and what we can physically see onsite have me very curious.

There are also rumours surrounding the Jurassic Park area, including a re-theme to Jurassic World and a new coaster. This excellent video explains it all:

Maybe like instead of destroying rides and building two new rides every single freaking year, they could pump the brakes and decrease ticket prices a bit lol. I understand the need to maintain relevance, but they are flirting with obnoxiousness...
