Thorpe Park Announces Saw: The Ride for 2009 Thorpe Park recently announced the name and theme of its 2009 Gerstlauer Eurofighter. It will be themed after the popular horror movie series, Saw. The ride will feature a 100′ climb and a beyond vertical drop of 100 degrees. Saw may be in the same vein as Dollywood’s Mystery Mine which was also a custom Eurofighter. I didn’t know that the Saw series was so popular in the UK, but apparently it is. If you’re a fan of the movies, the you’ll really appreciate the site. **Warning this site is not appropriate for children.** Check out the official web site for Saw: The Ride. As you can see from the photos above, the ride’s already pretty far along and should easily make its Spring 2009 target opening date. Any British coaster enthusiasts excited about Saw?

Reply Shirako Takamoto October 20, 2008 OMG.I am so damn scared about the show SAW.Its so damn scary.Each time I watch the show I have to ask my mom to come sit with me.But the coaster seems nice.Accept the pic of the coaster with the doll……and I shouldn't have gone into the site.It was scary.(Note:I am only 11.) Reply David S. October 26, 2008 I'm surprised that they named it after Saw. I always thought that only people who didn't really know much about the Horror Genre liked the saw movies. I guess I was wrong. The other thing that bothers me is that the name implies that only non-seasoned coaster riders will enjoy it, and it will subject one to extreme pain. I think I'll pass. Reply The Coaster Critic October 29, 2008 Shirako, when you see warnings like "not appropriate for children", since you're 11, that means you buddy! Reply Matthew July 5, 2009 Right when you leave the station, the begining of this ride is insane. Well the beginning of this ride is really why they called this ride saw. I think its kinda neat they have a little intro on this ride Reply Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
