Thorpe Park completes Swarm track construction

Thorpe Park has announced that the erection of the track for their 2012 ride The Swarm has been completed ahead of schedule.

Attention will now turn to the ride’s theming and landscaping – which will represent a significant part of the project’s £20 million budget.

Remaining work will also include the installation of high-definition video cameras which will be used to produce a purchasable DVD of guests on the ride.

The Bolliger & Mabillard winged rollercoaster will open to the public on 15 March next year, with advanced tickets for the opening period already on sale at £30.60.
