Seems like the park is getting a motocoaster of some sort. It will probably be Intamin since the park has bought their last two coasters from them.

Is "themed land" a separate park or is a giant addition?

I'm guessing it's probably part of the park but it is Parques Reunidos after all so I wouldn't put a separate entry price past them.

Well there goes all my excitement. RCDB has listed the coaster as a set of dueling Maurer Spike coasters.

I wasn't expecting a Mack megacoaster of course.... Maybe a dueling interactive coaster isn't as bad as it sounds.
Still optimistic!

Damn, such low capacity ride for Mirabilandia? I really hope it'll end up being a Vekoma Motorbike instead.

Wow that's depressing
Ok but how desperate you have to be to voluntarily fly from another country to go to Thorpe?

If the positioning of the cars on the concept art is right, it should have a dispatch time of 5-10 seconds... but I doubt that would be the case. :lol:

At least the layout looks decent. I do like that the area ends up in a currently still quiet side of the park. Perhaps it'll draw away the crowds from the other rides.

The buildings and everything else looks pretty cool at least.

Also I want the doggo.
