    But London Paramount is having a reshuffle so hopefully this will bring new energy to the project. (See the latest news section on their website).

    The next major project for Merlin in the UK has been announced. SW8 (just a project name for now) has been announced for Alton Towers. It will be a GCI woodie, with a 2 minute pre-show (a rarity for UK rides) and utilised a "silent magnetic lift system" which it is hypothesised could be mean a "launched" start. To help with sound issues that have plagued the park for much of it's life, parts of the ride including the entire first drop will be enclosed. Construction will being in the autumn of this year (2016) but the ride isn't slated to open until the Spring of 2018.

    Thorpe Park has confirmed information about the new attraction currently being constructed for the 2016 season.

    Curated by illusionist and mentalist Derren Brown, it is supposedly a revolutionary take on the ghost train, which features a 7 tonne, 65 foot railway carriage at it's heart, suspended in mid air by chains. The 13 minute experience will utilise grand illusion, 4D, live action and VR headsets, although it has been stressed that the VR will be a small part of the experience and this is not a VR ride.

    Yes, I am sure the delay is down to the transport plans being inadequate. Although 100 million much, it is a decent start, and with Merlin running into difficulties but the British consumer left without alternatives, now is the time for a large scale competitor to strike.
