Who SAW it coming? Saw: The Ride - at Thorpe Park, Spring 2009.
Written by Nick Hutson
England's Thorpe Park will launch SAW - The Ride, the world's first ever horror movie-themed rollercoaster, in spring 2009. Based on Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures' 'Saw' franchise, SAW - The Ride will put riders at the mercy of the series' master manipulator, Jigsaw.Tweet
A 'beyond vertical' drop of 100º from a height of 100ft, will make the ride the steepest freefall drop in the world. Riders will also endure three inversions on this, the park's fourth coaster.
Candy Holland, Creative Director for Merlin Entertainments Resort Theme Parks, is the woman behind the ride and also was responsible for the creative development of Thorpe Park's Stealth ride, Se7en maze, as well as Oblivion and Air at Alton Towers Resort.
The park's official website for the ride is www.sawtheride.com.
