Thorpe Park is currently a hive of construction activity, with two major attraction projects currently under construction.

Recently we heard that Thorpe Park will be receiving a second major roller coaster in the space of two years. Opening in 2003, Project Calypso will be a B&M Inverted coaster, similar to Nemesis at Alton Towers. The ride will feature a near one hundred foot drop, four inversions and a figure of eight helix finale.

The photo shows what appears to be a tropical volcano theme, which makes sense as the recently refurbished Sleepy Joe’s Rib Shack took on a tropical theme which will complement this new attraction. Construction has started, so stay tuned for updates.
