FLAMINGO LAND (UK)
Park News - (1/19/12) A quick update to the Corkscrew removal story. The actual rumor about the ride removal came out back in late 2011, but it has now been confirmed that the Corkscrew is being dismantled right now, and not at the end of 2012. You can find pictures of Corkscrew’s pieces already on the ground posted to RideGuideGroup.
(1/18/12) According to RideRater, Flamingoland will now remove their Corkscrew coaster (Vekoma). They report that it may be sold to Luna Park in France.
2013 - Cyclosaurus, Twistosaurus and Hero - (4/22/13) ThemeParksUK takes a look at the layout and attractions in the new Dino Stone Park area, and gives off details on which attractions will be themed to fit Dino Stone Park as well as the park’s three brand new attractions opening this year: Cyclosaur, Twistosaurus and Hero.
(3/12/13) Flamingo Land has confirmed the names for their three new Zamperla attractions coming to the park in 2013. According to the posting at ThemeParks-UK two rides will go into a new Dino-Stone area of the park: Cyclosaurus (Magic Bikes) and Twistosaurus (Jr. Twister Coaster). (NOTE: the tower ride added in 2012 will be given a Dino-Stone rethemed and renamed Pterodactyl). In the Metropolis area, on the site of the former Wild Mouse will be Hero, the Volare flying coaster.
(2/11/13) In an interview found posted to YouTube Mark Crane of Flamingo Land confirms that the Volare is being added to the Wild Mouse site and that the park will also add a junior family twisting coaster from Zamperla will go into the junior driving site.
(1/2/13) According to a reader, the Season Pass renewal letters being sent out from Flamingoland confirm that the park will add “3 sensational rides” in 2013. They don’t mention just what they are, though the rumors about adding a Zamperla Volare are stilling running high.
(12/5/12) Weird rumor time… as I got an e-mail claiming that Flamingo Land was planning to install a Zamperla Volare (Flying Coaster) for the 2013 season on the old Corkscrew site. I can’t imagine why anyone would want to buy one of these anymore, as they really have not been popular with guests, but can anyone confirm or deny this rumor?
