This rumour has been in back for a long time, but it seems like this is becoming more of likely by the day. So basically, the rumour is that Flamingo Land will be receiving a 10 looping coaster from Intamin. It is believed that this is the same coaster that was suppose to go to Hopi Hari, but was never installed and was then sent to a park in Malaysia, but was again, never installed and has now been reportedly sold to Flamingo Land on the cheap. Like i said, this rumour is becoming more likely by the day, especially since the park have just filed for a permit to install the coaster at the park (Notice how the stats match that of the more modern 10 looping coasters from Intamin):

Also, the park have been doing ground for where the coaster will go. Which is alongside Velocity, where the Corkscrew used to be located:

This is certainly a project to look out for going forward.

Ok, Thorpe park. Anyway, I know it's the old model, but still, it's so similar haha. I guess it's like California having two SRII's. Although the UK is smaller.... I looked it up, and 4.5 hours drive is probably far enough that most people won't ride both.

If the trains are the same as Altair at cinecittà World (same model) we can expect to see lap restraints!

Very happy to see this happening. I've really wanted to try the updated model of the 10 looper and now it'll be easier than ever.

It's a shame this is only happening because of Hopi Hari's troubles, but the general public of northern UK won't care about that!

Massive for Flamingo land, this.

I really hope so as the lapbars are so much better than the otsr's!
