This article is for a new roller coaster opening at Flamingo Land in 2020.

History[edit | edit source]

In February 2019, several rides were moved, creating a large space near the entrance plaza. Rumours suggested that Flamingo Land had purchased an Intamin 10-Inversion coaster and intended to install it beside Velocity, over the entrance plaza and the plot occupied by Corkscrew until it closed in 2011. The coaster, manufactured around 2011, was shipped to Hopi Hari in Brazil and later to Movie Animation Park Studios in Malaysia, but never setup at either location.[1]

In May, a planning application was filed for the construction of a roller coaster with specifications matching that of the Intamin 10 Inversion coaster Rev B model.[2]

The ride was officially confirmed in a Facebook post by the park on August 2, 2019. While no manufacturer was confirmed, banners at the construction site showed an Intamin 10 Inversion coaster, with the park even making references to Colossus at Thorpe Park in their Facebook post.[3]

On August 12, 2019, Flamingo Land confirmed that the project would be costing £20,385,000 in a competition on their Facebook page.

As the ride arrived on-site in October, it became apparent that this was indeed the Intamin 10-Inversion coaster which had been shipped from Malaysia.[4]

On October 21, 2019, the ride went vertical at Flamingo Land.

Design[edit | edit source]

Elements

The ride will be 840 metres long and reach heights of 34 metres. It will have ten inversions. Renderings suggested the roller coaster would be painted grey with black supports, however it was assembled in its original colour scheme of red track with yellow supports. The ride is being painted after it is assembled.

Trains[edit | edit source]

2 trains with 6 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 24 riders per train.
