Good news! Thorpe Park is apparently getting the rapids slide from Cypress Gardens, Florida! Does anyone know if this is Hafema or ABC?

It's a WhiteWater West ride. And I'm not sure if it's the best choice with the Thorpe Park public and limited capacity...

Thanks hatt.

Yes, this has had a bigger negative reaction than any other ride Thorpe has put in. From my point of view though, this is just a bonus.

I was incredibly disappointed with Saw because that was their chance to build the B&M flying coaster they were planning. This water ride, though, isn't "instead" of anything (as far as I'm aware), it's just a bonus.

The ride looks great, a bit of fun, but at Thorpe, even my opTimistic self isn't too sure about this one. It has to do with their 'clientele'.

Am I right in thinking Legoland Florida is getting LLand Windsor's Jungle Coaster?

Its replacing Octopus' Garden, so all the kiddy rides are been cleared out, which is interesting will Thorpe become the first "adults only" amusement park?

I honestly believe this ride would have been better suited to CWoA, wonder if any oft he other merlin parks will get a surprise gift from Cypress Gardens
