Take a first look at Britain's tallest and fastest roller coaster

October 9, 2023, 1:40 PM · We've got our first look at Britain's tallest and fastest roller coaster, which opens next year.

Thorpe Park is sharing the view, along with the name for the new Mack Rides Hypercoaster. Hyperia will top out at 236 feet, with a top speed of 80 miles per hour, when it debuts at the London-area park in 2024.

Looks like a great addition to what is for my money the UK's best coaster park.

This should be a great addition to Thorpe Park. Thorpe can't compete with Alton Towers for ambiance but on the other hand, Alton Towers can't have a hypercoaster due to zoning restrictions which prohibit the installation of coasters over the tree line.
