Thorpe Park's first roller coaster opened in 1984 as Space Station Zero. Themed to resemble flight in space, the coaster was indoors and had a tunnel with strobe lights for the first lap and mirror balls to project stars for the second. Between 1989 and 1990 the roller coaster was moved outside and renamed.

Flying Fish is a family coaster with a single train that swims through several not-too-thrilling helices during the ride. Instead of using gravity, this powered roller coaster has an onboard electric motor to propel it along the 768-foot-long circuit. Flying Fish is a roller coaster that's fun for all ages!
