Europes tallest Winged Coaster has arrived at Thorpe Park.

The Swarm is a B&M Winged coaster which stands at a height of 127feet, reaches a maximum speed of 92kph and has 4 Inversions.

After you climb the lift hill you will straight away enter your first inversion of a unique inverted drop before flying underneath a destroyed plane. You will then climb up into a zero-g-roll before passing a flaming fire-truck and entering a huge over-banked turn. The ride then circles around a destroyed helicopter before it enters a corkscrew. Finally you will skim past the remains of an old church before entering the final inversion of a long in-line twist.

The Swarm is themed to a world which has been attacked by aliens and the area features some great pieces of theme-ing which include a burning fire-truck, destroyed helicopter, and full size commercial plane wing. The station is themed to a destroyed church with the control station as an upside down police van. As well as plenty of near miss experiences, the ride also features water-jets, flames, and even LED lights on the trains to replicate the aliens eyes and weapons.
