    Idea: Derren Brown will do a live show where he makes millions disappear. And by live I of course mean Augmented Reality. It’s a real theater but Brown’s face will be pasted onto a confused employee. It will a capacity of 70 pph, with 2 preshows both explaining the next preshow

    ^ Too elaborate for Thorpe. It'll be a Love Island meet and greet in the Nemesis Inferno shop, just to nail the coffin shut.

    So a few months ago I jokingly said this on Discord.

    And today this was spotted at Thorpe.

    Hmm... I like the sound of a Purge-themed B&M hyper...

    Corrected for you.

    EDIT: Back on a serious note, It turns out the video was just an Ad for the TV series.

    I’d be very surprised if they went for a dive coaster. No real basis as to why, I’d just be surprised.

    Can see them going for an RMC ala Goliath at SFGA, on paper UK’s first hybrid coaster sounds like a pretty Merlinesque idea and they’d be pretty dumb to not atleast get RMC to pitch against their go to manufacturers. Can’t see them expanding onto swarm island anytime soon but could see them integrating whatever comes into this new Docklands area that houses DBGT and utilising the existing slammer site. Either that or a launch coaster with a substantial layout, something that won’t trump stealth but will do a bit more in terms of layout.

    What does the picture actually say? All I can read is "Emergency Broadcast System".

    Google helps. It says the exact same thing as it does in the (terrible) films.

    Out of interest, why does everyone seem to think it will be a B&M mini dive?

    Admittedly, you could ask the same question about a B&M hyper or any of the other ride types being suggested, but a B&M mini dive seems a little redundant at Thorpe to me, as Saw in the same park, if you get what I mean.

    I would love a SheiKra-style ride at the park, though!

    I don't think anybody actually does? I guess you could call it a "meme" but I thought memes were supposed to be funny so I'm not too sure.

    Sorry to correct you, ATI, but we actually have had a sign of a 2020 coaster at Thorpe in the form of this image that I posted about in the Project 2020 thread:
    So Thorpe themselves have talked about a 2020 project before now, and that image is not fan-made.

    Admittedly, something could have happened between now and July 2017 to delay Project 2020, but that image is what I'm going off of.
    Ah right. Thanks for the clarification @Ethan!
