Slammer was one of two new rides open for the 2005 season, along with Rush. Built by S&S Worldwide, it is the only existing ‘Sky Swat’ in the world – a truly unique ride! Shaped like a giant fly swatter, the ride takes you up to an impressive 75ft before flipping riders over their heads in the world’s only free-fall ride experience! At its highest point, Slammer rips through the sky at a whopping 105ft at 35mph, standing proud next to Colossus and towering over X. After three sky-flying, head-first rotations, the whole gondola slows down and flips you back over again. The ride rotates faster than its earlier years and is one of Thorpe Park’s most intense flat rides.
It is currently unknown what will be replacing Slammer but we are looking forward to see any developments of the site it occupies!
