Slammer Leaves Resort

Posted By Marc

Thorpe Park have today confirmed that Slammer is leaving the resort after 12 years of operation.

Opening in 2005 along with Rush, Slammer was the first S&S Sky Swat outside of America. Since opening the ride was plagued with reliability issues, often closing for months at a time throughout various seasons.

Rumours about Slammers future at the resort picked up over the past few weeks following the resort announcing over its social media channels that the ride would remain closed for the season, the ride was also removed from the resorts official website.

We reached out for comment from the resorts and they told us: 'Slammer has now left the Island after its 12 year residency. It's time to introduce something new to the Resort, so watch this space!'

For some time, Slammer was the only ride of its type operating in the world after Catapult in Six Flags New England was removed in March 2013.
