Thorpe Park's Project Dylan

© Thorpe Park Mania 2008

Thorpe Park's project Dylan (I love how many English parks have project names, it makes them more mysterious) is now going vertical.

The new-for-2009 ride is a Gerstlauer custom designed Euro-Fighter coaster; Mystery Mine at Dollywood is the same type of coaster system. Look at that super steep mini drop in the above photo, how cool! That's just like what happens right out of the station on Mystery Mine.

They started construction something like three days ago and already have a lot of track and supports up. Thorpe Park Mania has created a Project Dylan website that has tons of construction photos, a virtual ride, and more.
